The Can’t Miss Movies Of TIFF 2018

Tiff can be a little overwhelming. After all with over 300 movies screening throughout the festival, it can be a little hard to figure out what you want to see. This year’s line-up features some of Hollywood’s (not to mention the world’s) biggest stars as well. From Viola Davis, to Nicole Kidman, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine and many more, at least a few of your favourite stars should be here. And if you didn’t have a chance to get out to a film this past weekend, don’t think you missed your chance, as the festival runs all week long. Here are some of the films we think you should see.

Widows: This movies by Oscar winning director Steve McQueen is based on a British TV series of the same name, and it follows the story of four women who come together to deal with a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. The film’s cast includes Liam Neeson, Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Robert Duvall, Colin Farrell and many more, and is well worth checking out. Watch for this one come award’s season. 

A Star Is Born: Perhaps the most hyped film of the festival is Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut. Yes, it’s been done before, but Cooper’s performance, alongside Lady Gaga is really worth seeing.  It’s the story of a washed up singer and his protege whose star quickly shines brighter than his own. Cooper very well might earn his first Oscar for this one, and it wouldn’t be a grasp to see Gaga getting an Oscar nomination either. It’s also very likely to win the People’s Choice award of the festival.

The Sisters Brothers: Even if you don’t like Westerns, you might still enjoy this film about a pair of killers in 1850’s United States, sent on a quest to capture a chemist who betrayed their boss.  John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed star in this adaptation of the novel by Canadian author Patrick DeWitt. The film is both comedic and touching, yet still has the violent Western undertone you’d expect from the genre.

Halloween:  Jamie Lee Curtis returns to the franchise that made her one of the original scream queens of Hollywood. The makers of this film decided to ignore the convoluted sequels, and make this one a direct sequel to the original, so really you can forget most of everything you’ve seen before. It’s an interesting take on the franchise, and will give audiences the thrill they are looking for next month.

The cast already includes Timothee Chalamet, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Josh Brolin, Oscar Isaac, and Zendaya. It seems like everyday another big name is added the cast, which raises expectations even further.

His family controls the planet Arrakis, which is home to a valuable resource, and after his family is betrayed by other noble families who want the resources for their own, Atreides leads a rebellions to reclaim what is his.

Katy Perry Releases New Single / Video “365” With Zedd

With Valentine’s Day 2019 well on its way, Katy Perry and Zedd have released a new single and video called 365 that begs the question, can AI learn to love?

In the video Perry plays a Stepford-style robot who falls in love with a human male played by Zedd. The announcement says  “The video tells the poignant story of an android Katy Perry, who yearns to be human, as she attempts to make a genuine connection with Zedd.”  Perry herself tweeted out this morning “Does it know the difference between LOVE and OBSESSION?” as she tried to hype the video online.

Perry and Zedd wrote the song together, with Zedd producing. Perry was also responsible for conceptualizing the video directed by Warren Fu. Zedd said that the idea for the collaboration started to take shape last summer while they were on tour together in Australia. Perry on the other hand said she was “happy to collaborate” with Zedd as well. 

365 is the first single by both artists this year, and Perry’s first since the release of her 2017 album Witness. Zedd has worked recently with Shawn Mendes, Elley Duhé, and Maren Morris and Grey.

Martin Scorsese And Leonardo DiCaprio’s Serial Killer Project Moves To Hulu

It’s been close to a decade that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio have been working to get an adaptation of Erik Larson’s “Devil in the White City” to the big screen, and now it looks as if the project will be developed as a project for TV instead of the big screen. Hulu announced yesterday that they’ve teamed up with Scorsese and DiCaprio (who will now executive produce) to make it finally happen.

The Devil in the White City tells two stories, one being the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, and the other of serial killer H.H. Holmes and his “Murder Castle” where he seduced, tortured and mutilated young women. The two stories are interlinked by their location and time lines, and present a chilling side of American history. DiCaprio originally bought the rights to the 2003 book back in 2010, and in 2015 he signed on to play Holmes, while bringing on Scorsese to direct. The film never seemed to move beyond that though, and has stayed in development hell since then. 

Hulu’s announcement didn’t say where DiCaprio would still be starring in the series, or if Scorsese was still intending to direct the project, but at least their names are still attached to the project.
