Troy Dyer was mentioned during one of our segments on The Social. And some people were like …who? Christ Jesus. Was Reality Bites not a seminal movie for everyone????? Clearly not. But Troy Dyer is having an excellent year. Full Story

The highlight of TIFF tonight is probably the premiere for St Vincent at 9pm at the Princess Of Wales theatre. The festival is honouring Bill Murray. They’re telling fans to dress up as him. And of course, he’ll put on a show, like he always does. All that on top of his performance in the film, said to be one of the best, if not perhaps the best, of his career. Full Story

“When we save a dog, we save ourselves.” That’s a line from The Drop and you’ll hear it when you watch the clip below. I mentioned a British invasion at TIFF in the open. Tom Hardy is part of that. He arrived here in Toronto yesterday in advance of tonight’s premiere. Full Story

Keira Knightley was in London last night, hitting up Kate Bush's concert at the Hammersmith Apollo and then partying at Anabel's private members club. She'll be leaving soon though for Toronto where she has two films in the festival, The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch and the full campaign-hard support of Harvey Weinstein, and Laggies with Chloe Grace Moretz and yay!. Full Story

It’s September and summer is officially over, which means it’s time for festival season. Telluride has come and gone and Venice is underway, and now TIFF kicks off on the fourth, heralding the unofficial start of Oscar season (it’s pretty much year-round at this point, but TIFF is still when sh*t starts getting real Full Story

TIFF 2014 opens tomorrow. Sarah’s preview for the festival will be posted shortly as an advance overview of the entire event. But the gala on Thursday night belongs to The Judge. Robert Downey Jr, the biggest movie star in the world, is opening TIFF. Shinan Govani wrote a piece for The Globe & Mail yesterday featuring RDJ and how, ten years ago, it would have been unlikely that he would be the guy, the guy coming to Toronto, as the prime time steak. Full Story

Lainey texted me over the weekend about how she’s excited to see The Riot Club, a movie about secret societies at Oxford (it’s playing TIFF later this week). I’m into it for Natalie Dormer, but Lainey’s all over it because of the gaggle of British boys who star in it. While we agree on a few exceptions—Aaron Taylor-Johnson, for instance, though he’s hottest when he’s around Sam—Lainey likes boys and I like men. Full Story

I posted photos today of Will Ferrell and Luke Wilson Old School in the site intro today and someone yelled at me for not mentioning Timothy Olyphant. Fair enough. Timothy Olyphant was also at the US Open this weekend. And we should be seeing him at TIFF for This Is Where I Leave You. Everyone I know who’s seen it so far says it’s terrific. Full Story

Cara Delevingne was hanging out in New York yesterday. Next week? She’ll be in Toronto. She’s in a film called The Face Of An Angel screening at TIFF. Festival Cara. Film festivals are about movies, of course. And red carpets, always. And…the parties. As we’ve seen, this girl knows how to party. Full Story
