THE DROP, starring Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace will screen in the Special Presentations. #TIFF14
Yay! That will be The Drop’s world premiere.
Films in the Special Presentations program are generally contenders in awards season, and directors and stars usually attend the first screening. (I think there are a minimum of two screenings for every invited film, with one of them being for industry people and press.)
The festival runs September 4-14. » tiff programs

We are also waiting in Oz too…very very earnestly. :D
"We did “Animal Rescue” and I love working with him. We know each other … sometimes you meet someone and you feel like you can go anywhere—step into different characters and time zones or a period film or contemporary or whatever—we have a very intimate [relationship] and trust each other a lot….
“Noomi is an enigma. I’m quite taken by Noomi. I’ve got a list of girls I want to work with, that I can count on one hand. Actually under one hand. So, Noomi is on that hand. The thing about Noomi is, she really puts herself out there and she really goes to places where she’s really playful, she’s attentive, really sensitive, hyper vigilant, very thorough. Very fragile. And with that, she manages to portray a tremendous amount of power and electricity.” -Tom Hardy
