Because I refuse to allow myself to pay too much attention to the Toronto Film Festival's slate out of spite and bitterness I usually end up missing a lot of news with regards to just what is premiering there and might in turn be Coming Soon To A Theater Near Me - alas, my rage knows no bounds. Point being I missed the news that Kursk, Thomas Vinterberg's submarine drama starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Colin Firth and Léa Seydoux (not to mention frequent nudist Matthias Schweighöfer), is premiering there, and we've got two pictures from the film to boot! No word on a proper release date yet but I'll try to keep my eyes on that, although if my bitterness gets in the way again there's no telling. I'll do it for you, Matthias Schoenaerts in uniform!
The last time that Matthias teamed up with Thomas Vinterberg we got the terrific remake of Far From the Madding Crowd, which was a loving ode to "staring at Matthias Schoenaerts in clothes" so I'm pretty pumped.
Of course the last time that Matthias teamed up with Seydoux we got The Racer and the Jailbird, a movie that basically vanished, so we'll see. In related news Matty's Rust and Bone director Jacques Audiard's retrospective at MoMA starts this weekend and I'm pretty pumped about that too...
