Hollywood.com Highlights from the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival

The Toronto International Film Festival turned out to be the who’s who of Hollywood this year with everyone from Brad Pitt to Dakota Fanning on the scene for the parties and promotion surrounding their latest projects.

Hollywood.com made the trek to Canada to meet with the casts of some of the hottest films due out this fall. Despite our best efforts we couldn’t get to everything, but here’s a sneak peek at some of our favorite films from the fest.


Burn After Reading: Sept. 12, 2008

Who’s in it: Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Frances McDormandTilda Swinton and John Malkovich

Who directed it: Joel and Ethan Coen

What’s it about: When employees at Hardbodies Fitness Center (McDormand and Pitt) stumble across a CD of what they believe to be top secret CIA files, chaos ensues.

What you’ll love: Eye candy in the form of Pitt and Clooney along with laugh out loud funny situational comedy provided by the Coen brothers. 

Ethan Coen says: “It’s not a comment about other people; it’s just a part of ourselves that we would disavow. It’s certainly not about George Bush or anything specific politically, or other people we’re laughing at, or find amusing. We’ve all got the inner knucklehead. It’s again good fodder for stories.”

Next: Ghost Town
