This year’s Toronto International Film Festival has already unveiled a number of its Gala and Special Presentations screenings — including “Freeheld,” “The Martian,” “Stonewall,” “Black Mass,” “The Lobster,” “Room” and many more — but the festival has now added to that slate, rounding out its list of star-studded features with still more impressive picks. The festival’s newest additions include films like Catherine Hardwicke’s friendship drama “Miss You Already,” Drake Doremus’ sci-fi-skewing “Equals,” Marc Abraham’s Tom Hiddleston-starring Hank Williams biopic “I Saw the Light” and David Gordon Green’s “Our Brand Is Crisis.”

The new batch of titles also includes the festival’s Closing Night Film: Paco Cabeza’s “Mr. Right,” a hitman thriller mixed with romantic comedy sensibilities that stars Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick.

Other standouts from this fresh addition to the festival’s slate include Andrew Haigh’s “45 Years,” Natalie Portman’s directorial debut “A Tale of Love and Darkness,” the world premiere of Gaby Dellal’s “About Ray” and Robert Eggers’ Sundance hit “The Witch.”
