Toronto Adds 75+ Titles To 2013 Edition; James Franco, Alex Gibney, Hayao Miyazaki, Sean Durkin and Kevin Macdonald Among Them

"Southcliffe"

The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival added over 75 titles to its lineup this morning, including new films from Guillaume Canet, Hayao Miyazaki, Sean Durkin, Clio Barnard, James Franco, Johnnie To, Alex Gibney, John Turturro, Kevin Macdonald and Fred Schepisi.

Across four different programs -- Galas, Special Presentations, Contemporary World Cinema and TIFF Kids -- the festival brought its overall film count to just over 200 (see the full list here).

Among them are many world premieres, including Fred Schepisi's "Words and Pictures" (which stars Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche), Arie Posin's "The Face of Love" (which stars Annette Bening, Robin Williams and Ed Harris), John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo" (which stars John Turturro, Woody Allen, Vanessa Paradis, Liev Schreiber, Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara) Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's "The Last of Robin Hood" (starring Dakota Fanning, Susan Sarandon and Kevin Kline), Kevin Macdonald's "How I Lie Now" (with Saoirse Ronan and Tom Holland), Charlie Stratton's "Therese" (starring Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Felton, Jessica Lange and Oscar Isaac) and Megan Griffiths's "Lucky Them" (with Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church).

They'll debut alongside North American premieres of James Franco's "Child of God," Alex Gibney's "The Armstrong Lie," Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises," Clio Barnard's "The Selfish Giant," Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" and Alain Guiraudie's "Stranger By The Lake" (which will have all premiered at either Cannes or Venice), as well as the international premiere of "Martha Marcy May Marlene" director Sean Durkin's "Southcliffe," a British miniseries about a fictional market town inhabited by fictional characters, but with similarities to many actual people and places in Britain today.

Overall, today's lineup didn't come with any significant surprises or hugely anticipated new titles, though there's still one announcement left next week. Until then, you can find this week's batch of announced titles on the next page.

    Always like Sean Durkin. This time, a flavor of British culture with an American accent, maybe. 8)
