Toronto International Film Festival announces Lineup


The Toronto International Film Festival has unveiled its upcoming roster of films, which includes the North American premiere of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born.

The festival, which takes place in September, will see the premiere of Barry Jenkins’ James Baldwin adaptation If Beale Street Could Talk as well as Damien Chazelle’s Ryan Gosling-led First Man, marking both directors’ followups to their Best Picture hot contenders (in Jenkins’ case, winner) from two years back.

Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carrell’s drug addiction drama Beautiful Boy will also premiere. Robert Pattinson will be seen in High Life, Viola Davis, Cynthia Erivo and Michelle Rodriguez will appear in Widows, and Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges in Ben Is Back, making it quite the star-studded affair.
