As Channing Tatum has navigated Hollywood and impressively built his career along the way (three #1 movies in 2012, just sayin'), he's also amassed a helluva Rolodex. And it seems he's called in favors from everyone for "10 Years." The project, produced by Tatum, comes from “Dear John” and "We Are Marshall" writer Jamie Linden (who is also makes his directorial debut) and stars Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Brian Geraghty, Anthony Mackie, Kate Mara, Rosario Dawson, Justin Long, Scott Porter, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza and Oscar Isaac in a dramedy about a group of friends who, you guessed it, gather for the ten-year reunion.

While certainly a considerable threat to this day, it's easy to forget how massively destructive the country's AIDS epidemic was in the 1980s -- and how little politicians and health administrations did to curb it. Refusing to let go without a fight, a collective of Greenwich Village activists formed "ACT UP" (AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power) and took to the streets, forcing the conversation to be had. The group's effort yielded a fantastic number of developments in the battle against the disease, including quickly pushing essential medication into pharamacies.

While there is a plethora of fantastic movies headed to Toronto this year, only one will have the distinction of kicking everything off at TIFF and the honor in 2012 goes to Rian Johnson's "Looper."

From the director of "Treeless Mountain" and "In Between Days," comes "For Ellen," a bleak and moody-looking picture about a fuck-up rocker also trying to negotiate being a father. However, is it far too late? Directed by So Yong Kim and starring Paul Dano, Shaylena Mandigo with appearances by Jon Heder, Jena Malone, Dakota Johnson, and Margarita Levieva, "For Ellen" doesn't exactly look like a great time at the movies, but it does seem to feature a commanding performance by Dano. And perhaps one we've never seen from this young actor.

Now we’re getting a fresh look at the anticipated sequel, with a few images and a trailer (via Twitch) hitting the web.

Getting a film out in the world is a tough business, but for writer/director Mark Nistico, the effort behind his feature debut "Blue Collar Boys" has paid off with some recognition. Traveling the festival circuit, the movie earned Best Picture (Micro Budget) at the Toronto Independent Film Festival, as well as Best Screenplay at the Hoboken Film Festival. And while it won't be getting a nationwide release, it may be one to pay attention to if it screens near you.

Not many directors have an Oscar before their first feature is released, but playwright-turned-filmmaker Martin McDonagh managed the trick by picking up the Best Short prize for his film "Six Shooter." And fortunately, his feature follow-up, "In Bruges," was no disappointment; a soulful, foul-mouthed comedy that helped to revitalize Colin Farrell's career, it proved something of a sleeper hit a few years back, picking up some great reviews.

Mental disability, divorce, first boyfriends, teen pregnancy, bullying....yes, there is a lot going on in "Broken." And while the first trailer for the film does at least highlight the strong performances from the cast, it's too bad it's in service of a picture that doesn't quite do their work justice.
