It’s almost August which means “Man-Buster Summer” is coming to a close and every premiere film festival from here until December is a sure goldmine for Academy-worthy gems. I like to call it “Oscar Autumn”. I’m not actually going to be attending the Toronto International Film Festival in September but I’m still eager to follow along with event updates. After the official program was announced yesterday, I saw that Matt Rorabeck of Movie-Knight.com had gathered many of the lineup’s trailers in one wonderful post HERE. A big thanks to Matt for moving so fast on this. I’m excited to see the page grow as more trailers are released.
LOOPER, selected as the fest’s opening film, has been on my radar for a while. It stars Bruce Willis so it feels like a stale studio sequel reboot/remake/prequel at first, but it’s also being helmed by director Rian Johnson and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt which gives it a dose of indie cool. Check out the trailer below.
