It’s common for new parents to disagree on some aspects of parenting. What’s not so common is disagreeing on whether or not to feed the child.

This is something Mina (Alba Rohrwacher) and Jude (Adam Driver) don’t see eye-to-eye on in Hungry Hearts, among other things: Mina is obsessed with keeping her child shielded from the outside world, meaning she goes as far as to make sure he doesn’t eat, while Jude isunderstandablyworried about their baby’s safety.

Chris Rock's 'Top Five,' other Toronto films land distribution deals (Updated)

top-five

For studios looking to buy at the Toronto International Film Festival, Chris Rock emerged a very hot property. The comedian’s Top Five sparked a bidding war, according to multiple reports, with Paramount emerging the victor and scoring the worldwide rights to the film, the studio announced today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio paid around $12.5 million for the film.

“Chris and I go back decades, both personally and professionally, and so I am particularly proud to have watched his career grow to its highest heights over many decades,” Paramount Chairman and CEO Brad Grey said in a statement. “This film showcases brilliantly how talented Chris is as a filmmaker and storyteller and we are thrilled to be partnering with him, Scott Rudin and my longtime friend, the legendary Barry Diller and IACF for its worldwide launch.”

Rock’s film, which he co-wrote and directed, garnered wide acclaim at the festival—Vanity Fair even called it Rock’s Annie Hall. In the film Rock plays Andre Allen, a comedian-turned-movie star, who is being profiled for the New York Times by a reporter played by Rosario Dawson. Gabrielle Union is Andre’s reality star fiancée, and a variety of comedians—including Tracy Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, Kevin Hart, and Leslie Jones—also appear.

But Top Five isn’t the only film to score a deal at the festival. Here’s what studios have bought so far. We’ll be updating this post as more come in. (U.S. distribution deal unless otherwise noted.)

A galaxy faraway, so close: Adam Driver on the intimacy of 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

We promised him up front: No Jedi mind tricks. But when EW interviewed Adam Driver for our Fall Movie Preview, we couldn’t help but slip him a few questions about his work on Star Wars: Episode VII.

Although he couldn’t confirm this, multiple sources close to the Star Wars follow-up have already told EW that Driver will be playing a villain, a threat to both veteran players (Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher) and the cast’s newcomers.

“Doing Star Wars now—that’s surreal,” Driver volunteers. “I feel like that even with this cast. You start by try to stamp [that feeling] down as much as possible, just focus on what it is that you are there to do… Easier said than done.”

The guy from Girls is in four movies playing next month at the Toronto International Film Festival—including a breakthrough role opposite Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, and Jane Fonda in director Shawn Levy’s This Is Where I Leave You. Driver, 30, co-stars as Phillip, the charismatic, playboy baby-brother of a family in mourning. He wants them to see him as a grown-up, even though he isn’t above using some childish tactics to get attention (and get his way).

After talking about that role and the half-dozen others he has in the pipeline, EW ventured off into galactic territory. READ FULL STORY

'This Is Where I Leave You' trailer: Tina Fey and Jason Bateman learn you can go home again

The award for best cast of 2014 may already be locked up. Just look at the trailer for This Is Where I Leave You, starring (deep breath) Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Corey Stoll, Adam Driver, Jane Fonda, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Ben Schwartz, Timothy Olyphant, and Dax Shepard.

Based on 2009’s best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper (who wrote the screenplay), the dramedy follows four adult children (Fey, Bateman, Stoll and Driver) who return to their mother’s (Jane Fonda) house for a week when their father dies. “We need a new term for the tone. It’s not a dark comedy — because it’s not that dark. But it’s an ­emotional ­comedy,” Fey told EW.
