The Toronto International Film Festival announced the addition of over 6 dozen titles to various sections of their slate of films yesterday. As you might expect, there was a good deal of coverage across the interweb and I have kinked a number of those stories/posts below.

After looking at the films announced yesterday, I would venture to say that some films getting a hint of Telluride as a possible pre-Toronto destination included:
"The Armstrong Lie"
"How I Live Now"
"An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker"
"The Selfish Giant"
I am intrigued by John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo", Lee Sang-il's "Unforgiven" and Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises" (which I do think now may have a shot at Telluride).
Jeffrey Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere had his own take on the Toronto announcement yesterday in a very Telluride specific way. Wells continued with a theme he began with back a few weeks ago.
Check his blog post here: http://www.hollywood-elsewhere.com/2013/08/confirmed-no-lost-davis-or-nebraska-at-toronto/
The upshot of this is that "Inside Llewyn Davis", "All is Lost" and "Nebraska" continue to look strong for Telluride inclusion.
NEW PICS FROM PRISONERS
The Playlist posted a story yesterday afternoon with new still from three films...one of which, "Prisoners" from director Denis Villenueve has some chance of playing Telluride. One of those new views is above. You can find the other plus pics from "Anchorman 2" and "Grudge Match" here:
