    TIFF Skip List: 7 Notable Films Not Heading To Toronto
    by Peter Knegt

    The Toronto International Film Festival finalized its schedule yesterday, adding another 102 films to bring its total to 247 features. Though it’s quite possible a few stragglers will end up making the cut before the festival kicks off on September 9th, at this point it’s unlikely that most (or any) of the seven films discussed below will end up debuting at TIFF. Reasons could vary from reducing the expenses that come with premiering at a festival to not wanting to conjure up bad buzz. And it’s actually quite common for a couple of real deal awards titles to hold off from festivals and make their splashes closer to their official release date (recent best pic noms “There Will Be Blood,” “Milk” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” all come to mind).

    The seven films included here are in addition to three other major films that are skipping Toronto despite screening at other fall fests: Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere” (rumor is that Coppola is avoiding travel after the recent birth of her baby) and Julie Taymor’s “The Tempest”, which are both heading to Venice, as well as David Fincher’s “The Social Network”, which is opening the New York Film Festival. Also not on the list is Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life,” which has essentially been confirmed as a no-show for some time now, and thus has already been widely discussed.

    So, here are seven fairly high-profile (and all American) titles that may surprise a few folks with their absence from Toronto’s final lineup:

    ”The Beaver,” directed by Jodie Foster
    One wonders if this was a sure thing before Mel Gibson became a universal celebrity villain two months ago. This film, about a clinically depressed toy company CEO (Gibson) who uses a beaver hand puppet to communicate with his wife (Jodie Foster, who also directs) and children (Anton Yelchin and “Winter’s Bone” star Jennifer Lawrence) was already a hard sell before Gibson’s PR nightmare, and TIFF could have been a nice place to get good buzz building. Sadly, the prospects for said buzz actually looked quite good: Foster’s long-awaited directorial follow-up to 1995’s “Home For The Holidays,” the film’s script—by Kyle Killen—topped the 2008 “Blacklist,” which ranks the best unproduced screenplays. But now Gibson might have doomed Foster’s “Beaver” from ever getting the buzz it deserves.

    They might put it in next year, when everything has died down.
    If Jodie has another film she is going to direct this year, then it will help usher in The Beaver.

    I still cannot believe that they are delaying the release, all due to Mel's bad luck and behavior.

    There have to be other reasons.

    In my thread called "Mel Gibson likes Beaver more than Jews", or something like that, there's a discussion about how they could actually use Mel's "bad" publicity to help stoke more excitement about the film. Maybe it's too much of a gamble.

    That's why I can't believe that some [amateur] "film" sites reported about the rumor of a "Maverick" sequel. It's just a rumor but how can they report about something like that when it's so very obvious that even "The Beaver" has trouble getting released.

    They would rather wait and see how it goes before writing stuff that probably won't happen anyway. I'd say, right now Mel Gibson the actor is a "no-go".

    Yeah, the press...

    I thought that these two episodes (Mel - Oksana, Jodie - paparazzi) are somehow associated with the film "The Beaver" to draw attention to the film on the eve of its release. As they say there's no such thing as bad publicity . Any publicity is good publitsity. But it seems I was mistaken Bad is bad. Sad

    Awesome smilies, Eugene!!!

    And not all bad is bad. But if it's a good movie, which I get the feeling that it is, then it will be okay. We have to at least trust in that.
