Ned Rifle, Hal Hartley, Aubrey Plaza
In 1997, Hal Hartley released "Henry Fool," one of the best films of his career, but no one seemed to notice, even though it won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes. But Hartley knew he had something with the characters and world he created and in 2007 he dropped a sequel, "Fay Grim." It was far less satisfying than its predecessor, but now in 2014 he's capping the trilogy with "Ned Rifle," and hopefully it will close the series on an up note.

Pasolini, Dafoe
Willem Dafoe as Pier Paolo Pasolini? In a film directed by Abel Ferrara? Do we need to say more? Nope. Here's the synopsis for this one making its North American premiere in Toronto: Rome: on the night of November 2, 1975, the great Italian poet and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini is murdered. Pasolini is the symbol of an art that's fighting against the power. His writings are scandalous, and his films are persecuted by the censors; many people love him and many hate him. The day of his death, Pasolini spends his last hours with his beloved mother and later with his dearest friends, until he finally goes out into the night in his Alfa Romeo in search of adventure in the eternal city. At dawn Pasolini is found dead on a beach in Ostia on the outskirts of the city. In a film dreamlike and visionary, blending reality and imagination, it reconstructs the last day in the life of this great poet.

Pawn Sacrifice
Furrowed brows, bad suits, worse haircuts—it can only mean one thing: chess. And that game of mental strategy is at the center of "Pawn Sacrifice," which heads to Toronto to make its World Premiere.

A Second Chance
A Susanne Bier movie is coming to Toronto, and sorry, Jennifer Lawrence fans, it's not "Serena." That Depression-era drama is still M.I.A., and Bier has since gone to make two more films, including this one, "A Second Chance."

Something to remember: Noam Baumbach actually has two movies in the can. An untitled project with "Frances Ha" collaborator Greta Gerwig (which we bet hits Telluride) and "While We're Young," which goes to Toronto to make its World Premiere.

TIFF 2014 Imitation Game The Drop Wild Foxcatcher
So, the question was whether or not the Toronto International Film Festival's new rules about premieres—telling distributors that any movie playing the festival in the first four days couldn't screen anywhere else (sorry Telluride)—would hurt their ability to curate an attractive lineup. Well, put those fears aside as the fest has unveiled a pretty solid first wave of titles. So what's coming? Where do we start?
