The Guardian: Film festival smackdown: we predict how Venice, Toronto and Telluride will split the 2014 world premieres
The Venice and Toronto film festivals start announcing their lineups soon. So which festival will host which big premieres? Or will sandwich-filler Telluride snaffle the key screenings?

Kicking off what is now known as the "fall movie season", the next major rush
of festival premieres comes as autumn arrives, with the double whammy of the
Venice and Toronto film festivals (the former opening on 27 August, and the latter
on 4 September).
Each has their own distinctive character – Venice its old-Europe sheen, Toronto
its crack-the-US-market buzz – and a number of films play both, though they only
give the all-important world premiere to the one they like the best. The picture is
also muddied a little by the boutique Telluride film festival in Colorado, which tends
to nick one or two high-profile films from Toronto for unofficial world premieres (12 Years a Slave and Labor Day got
the sneak preview treatment last year).

However, Toronto has decided that, as of this year, it won't put up with being mucked about by Telluride's premiere-snaffling, and has told film-makers that if they want one of its prestigious opening-weekend slots, it's them or us. The film world is now being asked to look into its collective heart and plunk down its loyalty oaths. As the festivals firm up
their line-ups, we predict how the cards are going to fall.

TO TORONTOTheory of Everything...
Another British-scientist biopic (the other is 'The Imitation Game'), but this time we're in the company of the young physicist Stephen Hawking, as played by Eddie Redmayne, and his wife Jane (Felicity Jones). Unlike Imitation, this has some British beef behind the camera: Man on Wire's James Marsh is directing, and UK powerhouse Working Title are the producers.
The Guardian predicts, that the premiere of the 'Theory of Everything' will be in Toronto along with other big hits listed in the article (link to the full article)

The Hollywood Reporter: CineEurope: Universal Showcases
There was a special preview showcase for Stephen Daldry’s Rio de Janeiro thriller Trash, and a “very special preview” of Stephen Hawking biopic Theory of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, as well as an extended trailer for Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, the chronicle of the life of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during World War II, played in the film by Jack O’Connell.
Hewlett asked if there was anyone crying in the audience after the footage of Theory of Everything. “Yes,” came a shout from a female in the cavernous auditorium. “Good!” Hewlett said. (link to the full article)

The Guardian: Painting the stage red: top five plays about art 

As Tim Crouch's Adler & Gibb hits the Royal Court, here are the finest portraits of artists on stage, from John Logan's study of Rothko to Yasmina Reza's Art....
2. Red (2009)
Many plays talk about art: John Logan's study of Mark Rothko actually shows it being created. True, there's quite a bit of chat about a set of murals Rothko was commissioned to do for New York's Four Seasons restaurant. But we also see paint mixed, nails hammered into frames and a blank canvas being primed with a plum-coloured base. I still remember the joy of seeing Alfred Molina as Rothko and Eddie Redmayne as his assistant painting the place red in the original Donmar Warehouse production: one that established Rothko as an artistic visionary who worked strict nine-to-five hours....(link to the full article)

I already posted many photos, gifs and videos in my post about the play 'Red' and the Tony Awards.
