The Toronto International Film Festival has announced its first official slate, with titles in its Gala and Special Presentations program, including some of the most anticipated movies of the year. The 2019 edition will premiere much-anticipated titles like Todd Phillips’ Joaquin Phoenix-starring “Joker,” Taika Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit,” the Safdie brothers’ Adam Sandler-starring “Uncut Gems,” Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars” followup “Knives Out,” James Mangold’s “Ford v Ferrari,” Destin Daniel Cretton’s Michael B. Jordan vehicle “Just Mercy,” Steven Soderbergh’s “The Laundromat,” John Crowley’s “The Goldfinch,” Armando Iannucci’s “The Personal History of David Copperfield,” and Lorene Scafaria’s true-life “Hustlers.”

The lineup is rife with still more major names jockeying for early awards season attention, including Noah Baumbach (who will show his Netflix drama “Marriage Story”), Kasi Lemmons (showing her Harriet Tubman biopic “Harriet”), Rupert Goold (with his Judy Garland biopic “Judy”), and Edward Norton (who directs himself in “Motherless Brooklyn”).
