TEN BETS #4
Not much movement in the "Ten" this week. Anxiously waiting for the Toronto and Venice fests to announce lineups next week and see how that news impacts the thinking about Telluride.
Here's last week's Ten Bets:
2) The Invisible Woman
3) The Story of Children and Film
4) The Past
5) The Unknown Known
6) Daughter of the Dawn
7) Aguirre: The Wrath of God
8) The Immigrant
9) Labor Day
10) The Lunchbox
This week's Ten Bets:
2) The Invisible Woman
3) The Unknown Known
4) The Story of Children and Film
5) The Past
6) The Immigrant
7) Daughter of the Dawn
8) Labor Day
9) Blue is the Warmest Color
10) Aguirre: The Wrath of God
Just below the "Ten": "The Lunchbox", "Like Father Like Son", "Life Itself", "Only Lovers Left Alive", "12 Years a Slave", "Quai d'Orsay", "Heli", "Philomena" and "The Selfish Giant".
Also be looking out for SPC additions (reportedly) "Foxcatcher" and "Jodorowsky's Dune" as possibles.

Jeff Wells/ Hollywood Elsewhere tweeted enigmatically the link to this bit of Telluride #40 speculation:
"All is Lost"
"Inside Llewyn Davis"
"Blue is the Warmest Color" and
Hope he's right.
Here's the link to his post from yesterday:
DOMESTIC COUNSELOR TRAILER
A new domestic trailer for Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" is making the rounds. I have stories linked here through The Playlist, FirstShowing and Rope of Silicon:
It will be interesting to see where this film lands next week when Venice and Toronto begin announcing their lineups.
NEW RUSH TRAILER
There has been a bit of media speculation that the new Ron Howard film "Rush" could make an appearance as a part of this year's Telluride program. Frankly, I'm less convinced, but a) you never know and b) I have to tell you that over the last six weeks I've heard some pretty interesting/strange T-ride possibilities...so maybe it could pop up.

SPC AND DUNE
Word this week that Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the documentary "Jodorowsky's Dune". That makes it a film to consider for Labor Day weekend. The doc explores the failed attempt by film maker Alejandro Jodorowsky to produce an adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic SciFi novel.
I've attached SPC's news release via Facebook:
