More photos from the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival of course.

Plus Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig & Adam Scott In 'Friends With Kids'Lots of Toronto first looks coming down the wire today, so we'll keep it brief, but two of the more anticipated comedies that'll bow at the festival just had their first official stills released. First up is "Jeff Who Lives At Home," the second mainstream picture from The Duplass Brothers, who became indie favorites with films like "The Puffy Chair" and "Baghead," proving to be standouts of the so-called 'mumblecore' scene, before getting to work with bigger names and budgets on last year's excellent "Cyrus."

It's been a flurry of a morning with the awesome Toronto Film Festival line-up being announced. On top of that comes a ton of first looks at films that have been highly anticipated on our part. First up we have quite a few photos of Steve McQueen's "Shame," starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. McQueen last directed Fassbender in "Hunger," a movie about the 1981 hunger strike in Ireland. "Hunger" was Fassbender's first shove into the spotlight, and he's now one of the year's "it" guys, knocking it out of the park in "X-Men: First Class" earlier this summer and getting ready for an awards push as Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method," rumored to premiere at the Venice Film Festival (and definitely showing at Toronto either way).

Dead Cats, Dirty Limericks, Getting Locked In A Closet & More We Learned About Miranda July's LatestWhen our own James Rocchi saw Miranda July's latest film, "The Future" at Sundance back in January, he noted the film succeeded "as a single story about the terrifying possibilities of life, the uncertainty of love and the certainty of the passage of time." A month later, we caught up with July at SXSW, she mirrored his thoughts on the film calling "The Future" a "a horror movie about facing the void, the empty moment where you don’t know what to do with yourself." And it's in that pre-mid-life crisis of sorts that "The Future" finds its compelling pulse.

Jason Reitman better get on the phone with his tailor now and get an order in on a couple of suits because it looks like he's once again going to be doing a marathon through the awards season following back-to-back hits "Juno" and "Up In The Air."
