    New TIFF Photos: Keanu Reeves' 'Man of Tai Chi,' Stephen Frears' 'Philomena' & 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom'

    It's been over 10 years since Keanu Reeves was kung-fu fighting and fast as lightning in the "The Matrix Revolutions" (makes you wish they woulda quit after the first film), but while Reeves has been taking it kind of easy ever since (probably the two biggest films he's starred in since then have be...

It may seem too early to be thinking about the Dolby Theater, black tuxedos, and brilliant ball gowns — but someone has to. Right now, that someone is Harvey Weinstein. The peren...
