With the announcement of initial selections for the Toronto International Film Festival, the producers and distributors are now in the business of highlighting their premieres with images and trailers.

So let’s spotlight some of them, thanks to TIFF’s YouTube account.

Lone Scherfig’s latest The Riot Club is based on the hit play Posh, with a cast including Natalie Dormer, Max Irons, Sam Clafin, Jessica Brown Findlay and Douglas Booth.

The Riot Club opens in the U.K. on September 19th,but doesn’t have U.S. distribution yet.


Check out the trailer for the film about a privileged young man who is inducted into the exclusive, debaucherous company of Oxford’s elite “Riot Club.”

Next, Susanne Bier’s latest A Second Chance, led by Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, with a script from Anders Thomas Jensen. A shocking drama about how easily we lose our grasp on justice when confronted with the unthinkable co-stars Ulrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen.


No distribution yet. Check out the trailer below.

Next, Hal Hartley’s Ned Rifle marks the third and final chapter of his trilogy, beginning with Henry Fool and followed up a decade later with Fay Grim. The film which follows Henry’s son Ned and his adventures in New York City, stars Liam Aiken, Aubrey Plaza, Parker Posey, Martin Donovan, Robert John Burke, and James Urbaniak.


I love the score and Plaza is looking way too good. Check it out:

Finally, there is My Old Lady from director Israel Horovitz, with Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas. It’s the story of a down-and-out New Yorker who inherits an apartment in Paris from his estranged father and is stunned to find a refined old lady living there with her protective daughter.


Could My Old Lady win Smith an Oscar?
