2017 Toronto Film Festival Line-Up

The 2017 Toronto Film Festival has announced the list of the major gala and special presentations that will be screened in the Canadian city in September.

Quite a few of these titles are expected to be big contenders during the awards season. Considering the last two Best Picture winners, “Spotlight” and “Moonlight,” both scored rousing receptions at the fest – expect at least a few Oscar Best Picture nominees in here.

Notable world premieres this year include Joe Wright’s “Darkest Hour” with Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, Andy Serkis’ “Breathe” with Andrew Garfield as disability rights advocate Robin Cavendish, Susanna White’s “Woman Walks Ahead” with Jessica Chastain, the Jake Gyllenhaal-led Boston marathon bombing drama “Stronger,” and the L.A. riots film “Kings” with Daniel Craig and Halle Berry.

Also on the way are Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing,” George Clooney’s “Suburbicon,” Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!,” Martin McDonaugh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri,” Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father,” Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s “The Current War,” Wim Wenders’ “Submergence,” Scott Cooper’s western “Hostiles,” Craig Gillespie’s “I, Tonya,” and the Paul Rudd-led “The Catcher was a Spy”.

Sundance and Cannes holdovers like “Call Me By Your Name,” “Mudbound,” “BPM,” “A Fantastic Woman” and “The Square” will also all screen. Here’s the full list:
