Colin Firth Kate Winslet
It would seem like by now, Hollywood would have found a way for Colin Firth and Kate Winslet to appear in a movie together. It's rather remarkable that the haven't, but that could all be about to change if everything around a developing yacht racing world drama comes together.

Labor Day
A criminal on the run, a young boy coming of age and a woman in need of companionship... all of these elements come together in "Labor Day," the latest from Jason Reitman, which is gearing up to hit theaters in a couple months after making a very modest splash at Telluride and Toronto. It's certainly a different animal from the writer/director's previous pictures, and one that brings a couple of our favorite actors together in the lead roles.

Press Conference TIFF 2013
If you are stuck having to watch all the Toronto International Film Festival action from the sidelines, fret not—another aspect of the festival will now come straight to your computer screen. The overlong, occasionally awkward press conferences that accompany each of the big films at TIFF have been uploaded to YouTube, so you can squirm in your seat while pretending to not play Candy Crush like the rest of the journalists in the room. This is literally hours of material, from big marquee titles like "Gravity," "12 Years a Slave," "Prisoners," "Labor Day," "Enough Said" and more. It's like you're there! Only not.

Labor Day
Jason Reitman's "Labor Day" just got out of press screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival and so perfectly timed, the debut clip from the film has arrived. Starring Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and 14-year-old Gattlin Griffith (Clint Eastwood's "Changeling"), "Labor Day" is based on Joyce Maynard's book of the same name and centers on an escaped convict (Brolin), who takes refuge of the home of a depressed, single mother (Winslet) while the cops are out on a manhunt in the nearby town.

Labor Day, Kate Winslet ,Josh Brolin
Short of helming a "Smurfs" sequel, it's tough to imagine writer-director Jason Reitman going for a greater change of pace than he has with "Labor Day," a full-immersion exercise in the old-fashioned women's weepie that skews far closer to Nicholas Sparks' brand of contrivance than Diablo Cody territory. Give him credit for breaking with trademark satirical impulses so completely that counting the laughs in his self-penned script — based on a 2010 Joyce Maynard novel — doesn't require two hands. But the (sorry) laboriousness of the plot's romance-novel machinations ensures there'll be at least a few dry eyes in the house.

In case you missed it this morning, TIFF unveiled their first wave of titles, and they basically went to IMDB, looked up any remaining movies left in 2014 that you might be looking forward to, and them in their lineup. Okay, maybe that's a bit extreme but it's an incredible slate this year, and now we're starting to see some first look images of the movies that will making their way to Toronto.

Shailene Woodley, Divergent
So Shailene Woodley, who will no longer appear in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and is reportedly being replaced in part 3 all together, got kicked in the teeth today, right? That and the fact that there were those vile comic book nerd posts a while back questioning her attractiveness (like those guys wouldn't dream to sit next to her, let alone date her). Meh, not so much. In fact, it's kind of been her day. She showed up in the trailer for "The Spectacular Now," this morning, one of Sundance 2013's biggest hits and now new images of "Divergent" have been released. What's "Divergent"? Well, a sci-fi-ish young adult movie adaptation that looks like it's going to be as popular as "The Hunger Games" if audience fan buzz is any indication.

From rumbling with Tom Cruise in "Jack Reacher" to trading quips with Dad Willis in "A Good Day To Die Hard," Jai Courtney has been enjoying blockbuster gigs, but still hasn't penetrated the pop culture consciousness. Perhaps a part in potential tween franchise will do the trick.

Review: 'Movie 43' Strains For Laughs With Uninspired Collection Of Comedy Shorts

What is there to say, analytically, about “Movie 43”? Not released in theaters as much as inexplicably materializing in front of our very eyes, “Movie 43” has no moral, no overarching story, and no point other than the opportunity for Hollywood stars to play silly for a short while. Some of them relish this – a few of the performers are a natural at studied wackiness. Some aren’t as comfortable. Others just seem like they’re passing the time. The filmmakers who collaborated on this anthology film, however, mostly fit that last description. Despite the title, this… thing…is barely a movie.
