South African director Neill Blomkamp makes his debut with the potent sci-fi thriller District 9, where aliens have been sequestered and separated from humans for over 20 years – until now.

The film stars Sharlto Copley and is produced by The Lord of the Rings' Peter Jackson.
A cacophonous crowd filled the Imperial Room at the Royal York Hotel in downtown Toronto Tuesday afternoon, eagerly awaiting word on which Canadian films would be added to the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival - a sure sign that homegrown films are on par with their typically more high-profile international cohorts.
Returning favourites and new faces are among Canada's contribution to the 34th film fest, including Atom Egoyan's latest and the follow-up to French-Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallée’s 2005 favourite C.R.A.Z.Y. Egoyan’s Chloe, the Toronto-filmed drama starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried, gets the Gala treatment and Vallée's The Young Victoria has been honoured as the closing night film. Starring Emily Blunt in the title role, Victoria presents a starkly different image of the notorious would-be queen and judging by the trailer that was screened for the eager crowd, this is a version few have seen. Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Miranda Richardson and Paul Bettany co-star in Vallée's reflection on the early years of Victoria's reign and the notion of instant celebrity.

In March 2010, Disney will bring together the timeless imagination and vision of director Tim Burton and author Lewis Carroll. The anticipation for this one is huge and what better way to ramp up excitement than to get a sneak peek at the costumes, props, sets and art from Alice in Wonderland! We got the chance to do just that on Wednesday when the showcase from the film swept through town for its second and last North American engagement. We were already eagerly awaiting the release of this movie, but after catching this exhibit you can bet we're now counting the seconds until it hits theatres! With an impressive cast (including Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Christopher Lee, Alan Rickman, and talented newcomer Mia Wasikowska as Alice) and mind-blowing sets, we plan to be first in line to see it! Feel like catching Wonder fever too? Check out some of the highlights of the exhibition below!
This week's certified romantic drama The Time Traveler's Wife proves once again that Hollywood just loves going back to the future (or back to the past)! While the concept is about as fantastical as you can get, you just know we'd all love to do it just once, right? But until time travel becomes more fact than fiction, we'll just have to live vicariously through these hit films!
One-part sci-fi spectacle and one-part apartheid meditation, Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 was never intended to be more than a low-budget short film made for kicks in his native South Africa.
