A Little Chaos-Alan Rickman-Kate-Winslet
TIFF will close out the 2014 festival with "A Little Chaos." The period film is led by Kate Winslet, with Stanley Tucci, Matthias Schoenaerts and Alan Rickman (who also directs) in support in this film that has a fairly unconventional plot.

Pawn Sacrifice
Furrowed brows, bad suits, worse haircuts—it can only mean one thing: chess. And that game of mental strategy is at the center of "Pawn Sacrifice," which heads to Toronto to make its World Premiere.

A Second Chance
A Susanne Bier movie is coming to Toronto, and sorry, Jennifer Lawrence fans, it's not "Serena." That Depression-era drama is still M.I.A., and Bier has since gone to make two more films, including this one, "A Second Chance."

While We're Young, Baumbach
Something to remember: Noam Baumbach actually has two movies in the can. An untitled project with "Frances Ha" collaborator Greta Gerwig (which we bet hits Telluride) and "While We're Young," which goes to Toronto to make its World Premiere.

Space Station 76
The genre comedy/spoof is a tricky one to pull off. Hell, just ask Seth MacFarlane, who tried it with "A Million Ways To Die In The West." Needless to say, Jack Plotnick has his work cut out for him with "Space Station 76," but the first trailer reveals something whose ambitions are modest, while keeping a sharp eye on the jokes.

The Riot Club
Lone Scherfig came to international attention thanks to the success of "An Education," but her followup "One Day," didn't catch fire in the same way. Can "The Riot Club" find the director back in firmer footing? We'll soon find out.

TIFF 2014 Imitation Game The Drop Wild Foxcatcher
So, the question was whether or not the Toronto International Film Festival's new rules about premieres—telling distributors that any movie playing the festival in the first four days couldn't screen anywhere else (sorry Telluride)—would hurt their ability to curate an attractive lineup. Well, put those fears aside as the fest has unveiled a pretty solid first wave of titles. So what's coming? Where do we start?

Fargo
With the animated, Kickstarter funded animated effort "Anomalisa" presumably on the way, it's not like we have nothing to look forward to from Charlie Kaufman ("Synecdoche, New York," "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind") but it has been frustrating watching his projects sputter in development (don't get us started on the meta-musical "Frank Or Francis"). Which is why this latest bit of news is a bummer... but has a silver lining.

Akira
By the time the Tom Cruise-starring “Edge of Tomorrow” will likely clear the $100 million domestic box office threshold, it will have been in theaters for two months. Yet despite the underperformance stateside, the film is doing very well overseas with grosses adding up to $261 million. The international box office—which is responsible for nearly 3/4 of the film’s worldwide haul—may explain why Warner Bros. is looking at one of the writers of the Doug Liman-helmed film to take a crack at another beloved Japanese property.
