From Kansas City, MO. On to Chicago today.
CHANDOR AND MILLER TALK THE PAST AND FUTURE

The Hollywood Reporter talked recently to director/writers J.C. Chandor and Bennett Miller. THR spoke with Chandor about last year's critical favorite (and one of my favorite films from TFF #41) "All is Lost". THR also spoke to him about his upcoming "A Most Violent Year" starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain. I'm in hopes that "Year" follows "Lost" to Telluride. The post also features a few notes from Bennett Miller vis-a-vis "Foxcatcher". Take a look at the post here:
SOUND AND FURY ABOUT "FURY"

Brad Pitt's World War II tank drama has both a new poster and a new trailer. The film is set for a November release and it's not completely outside the realm of possibility for it to play T-ride. I can actually see the possibility of it playing along with Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" at TFF #41. You can look at a couple of stories about the latest "Fury" P.R. barrage here:
SARAH POLLEY HAS A NEW STORY TO TELL

Sarah Polley made a big splash at Telluride a couple of years back with her documentary "Stories to Tell". Now the actress turned director has her next project lined up. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Polley has secured the rights to John Green's ("The Fault in Our Stars" guy) "Looking for Alaska". Might we see that in Telluride at a future fest? I wouldn't rule it out. Check the THR post here:
This last note...2014's first "Ten Bets" for Telluride is coming tomorrow...
