The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off today with the world premiere of the Netflix historical drama “Outlaw King.”
Chris Pine stars in the epic tale as 14th-century Scottish outlaw hero Robert the Bruce.
It’s the first-ever movie from a streaming giant to open an international film festival.
Other big films set to screen at the festival include First Man, starring London, Ont., native Ryan Gosling as astronaut Neil Armstrong.
Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper makes his directorial debut with A Star Is Born which features him and Lady Gaga.
And Julia Roberts has two projects at the festival — the film Ben is Back and the Amazon series Homecoming.
The festival ends Sept. 16.
It’s TIFF time again which means King Street now closed to traffic from Peter to University Ave. It’s now being transformed into Festival Street. For commuters it means detours and streetcar rerouting for the next four days. Roads reopen 5am on Monday. pic.twitter.com/V6FwHeaZEY
