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."

British actress Juno Temple (daughter of documentarian Julien) started out with memorable roles in “Atonement” and “Notes on a Scandal,” and she’s quickly made a name for herself on this side of the Atlantic too. She may have starred in Harold Raimis’ toxic “Year One,” but managed to nimbly sidestep the fallout from that project, in large part by nixing any expectations she might flower into an English Rose in the Keira Knightely stable, and getting her kit off in Gregg Araki’s spectacularly nuts “Kaboom” earlier in the year and landing a role in the upcoming “The Dark Knight Rises.”

After three straight films all ostensibly working from the same formula -- "The Hangover" and "Due Date" films are all ostensibly cut from the same comedic cloth of fish-out-of-water/comedic journey pics -- it seems like director Todd Phillips is looking for a slight change of pace and direction. So how about a stoner pic about weapons sales? We're listening....

First Look At 'Ghost Rider 2'; Another 'Crank' Movie In The Works With Or Without Jason Statham

Bookending their Comic-Con presentation this weekend by a title that read “fucking your shit up in 3D February 2012,” the “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor certainly aren't mincing words about the visual blitzkrieg they're planning for the upcoming comic sequel. Holding on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades and generally disregarding their personal safety all in the name of capturing action sequences in their distinct visual style, if anything, 'Ghost Rider' promises -- for better or worse -- to be unlike any comic movie we've ever seen. But as anyone who has seen their "Crank" movies knows, trying to nail down what they do on film with a single still is pretty much impossible so don't get too bummed at static nature of these first look pics from the film.
