New York Film Festival Announces Full Slate

The 52nd New York Film Festival will run from September 26th to October 12th, and as per usual, it’s set to be packed to the gills with promising movies. This year, the Film Society of Lincoln Center has managed to lock down a bevy of highly promising titles, including major Oscar contenders (FoxcatcherInherent Vice) and entries from acclaimed directors like David Cronenberg (Maps to the Stars) and Mike Leigh (Mr. Turner).

NYFF 2014 will see the world premiere of David Fincher’s mystery thriller Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, as its opening night selection. The world premiere of Paul Thomas Anderson’s hotly anticipated detective film Inherent Vice will serve as the festival’s centerpiece film. And ambitiously shot drama Birdman, from director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, will make its U.S. premiere as the closing night selection.

Other huge titles making an appearance at NYFF 2014 include Foxcatcher, Bennett Miller’s drama about the real-life murder of Olympic champion freestyle wrestler Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) at the hands of paranoid schizophrenic John du Pont (Steve Carell); Clouds of Sils Maria, Olivier Assayas’ drama about an aging actress (Juliette Binoche) confronting the up-and-comer (Chloë Grace Moretz) who is tackling her most iconic role; and Whiplash, about a young drummer (Miles Teller) challenged by a ruthless band conductor (J.K. Simmons).
