2015 Toronto Film Festival First Round Line-Up Announced

The 40th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has made public its first batch of films – and it's quite the line-up!

In recent years, TIFF has become known as the venue of choice for many Oscar contenders and other highly-anticipated international films to make their North American or worldwide debut. Jean-Marc Vallée's Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, has been chosen as the festival's opening-night film, which bodes well for the film's critical reception.

The Toronto International Film Festival will take place this fall, September 10-15, 2015.

Check out the full first round line-up after the jump!
