looper

Organizers for September’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) announced a slate of movies guaranteed to please cinephiles. The festival will open with Rian Johnson’s time-twisty thriller Looper, and will also include the world premiere of the mysterious Wachowski/Tykwer collabo-adaptation of Cloud Atlas, Ben Affleck’s true-life thriller Argo, David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, and Joss Whedon’s shot-in-a-fortnight adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. The festival will also feature the next movie by auteur Terrence Malick, the Ben Affleck/Rachel McAdams headlined TThe Wonder. (That makes two Terrence Malick movies in two consecutive years — a new record!) Other big names include Neil Jordan, Mira Nair, Robert Redford, and Bill Murray, who plays FDR in Hyde Park on the Hudson. Check out the complete schedule below:
