Other releases include Toronto closing nighter The Young Victoria and Terrence Malick’s The Tree Of Life, starring Sean Penn and Brad Pitt.

This Boondocks installment is a continuation of writer/director Troy Duffy’s 2000 tale of the vigilante MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery). The first movie was a DVD hit. This time the brothers come out of hiding to avenge a beloved priest who was hit by the Mob. Clifton Collins and Julie Benz join the ensemble. Berney cited a favorable response to the filmmakers and cast at Comic-Con. "They've delivered a solid follow up with lots of surprises for the fans," he said. SPWAG will handle domestic ancillary rights and all international rights.

Here's the trailer:
