Get ready New York, the stars are on their way for the New York Film Festival and this afternoon, organizers announced two big additional special gala presentations to the slate.

First up, David Cronenberg adds another date for the festival run for "A Dangerous Method," which already includes bows at Venice and TIFF. Based on Christopher Hampton‘s acclaimed 2002 play “The Talking Cure” and starring Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen, the film will center on the relationship between Carl Jung (Fassbender) and Russian-Jewish patient Sabina Spielrein (Knightley) that turns sexual, ultimately causing a rift between Jung and his mentor Sigmund Freud (Mortensen), but also catalyzes strong findings in regards to Jungian psychoanalysis. The move confirms that Sony Pictures Classics believes that this one will be a major contender for gold this year, with Knightley's turn in particular the center of early buzz. The film will walk the red carpet on October 5th at Alice Tully Hall.

Meanwhile, a week later on October 12th, Pedro Almodóvar will deliver his change of pace project "The Skin I Live In." Starring Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya and Marisa Paredes and based on Thierry Jonquet‘s novel “Mygale,” the film—a blend of horror, thriller and melodrama—is a revenge tale that tells the story of a plastic surgeon (Banderas) on the hunt for the men who raped his daughter. “The Skin I Live In” premiered earlier this year at Cannes where it received mixed reviews, but unsurprisingly still had a lot of people talking about the film on the Croisette. It hits TIFF next month before going to New York.

If you can't make it to a festival screening, you won't have to wait long for either film. "A Dangerous Method" hits on November 23rd with "The Skin I Live In" landing October 14th. The New York Film Festival runs from September 30 – October 16.
