'Third Person' Liam Neeson Olivia Wilde

Yes, more today coming from the bounty that is TIFF, with organizers unveiling an unbelievable fest of films coming in September. So let's keep diving in and see what's on offer...

Paul Haggis, the filmmaker behind "Crash" and "In The Valley Of Elah" returns with "Third Person," another ensemble drama with Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde just two of the red carpet ready cast. Here's the synopsis:

Love, passion, mystery, betrayal and hope infuse Paul Haggis' new feature, which follows the interrelated stories of three couples in three cities, Rome, New York and Paris — each with its own secrets. Starring Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Maria Bello, Kim Basinger and Moran Atias.

Next, Colin Firth finds WWII haunting him opposite Nicole Kidman in "The Railway Man":

Based on the bestselling novel, The Railway Man tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax, a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labour camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax discovers that the Japanese interpreter he holds responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him, and his haunting past. Starring Academy Award–winner Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine, and Academy Award–winner Nicole Kidman, the film is a powerful tale of survival, love and redemption.

Lastly, Joel Edgerton returns to Australia to lead a what sounds like a knotty crime drama/thriller:

Three detectives become embroiled in a tense struggle after a tragic accident that leaves a child in critical condition. One is guilty of a crime, one will try to cover it up, and the other attempts to expose it. How far will these men go to disguise and unravel the truth?

As always, much more to come from Toronto, so stay tuned...
