After bringing Life During Wartime to the festival in 2009, Happiness director Todd Solondz is returning to Toronto International Film Festival with his upcoming film Dark Horse next month. We posted the first photos last week, but TIFF has revealed a “teaser,” which is really a short clip. Starring Jordan Gelber, Justin Bartha, Selma Blair, Christopher Walken, Aasif Mandviand and more, one can see Solondz is continuing with his off-beat comedy. Check out the quick teaser below via YouTube.

The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 8th to 18th.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
