How to best get a meeting with distributors during TIFF?
Bain: "There are filters. We get into who's selling it, is it a sales agent we trust? And send screening links. I know filmmakers recoil in horror at that, but make it easy to see. " 🙏 #BreakfastAtTIFF

My TOY STORY 4 review is coming next week, but since the embargo is up: The film, easily the weakest of the series, feels like it could've been a Disney+ movie and we'd all be fine with it. But dammit, the last five minutes made me cry. It also confirms 2019 as the Year of Keanu.

No trailer for CATS, but a behind-the-scenes clip -- including Idris Elba talking about looking at the world through "the cat perspective " and Taylor Swift mouthing "meow " -- proves that this is a very real thing we should all be prepared to reckon with. #CinemaCon

Cooper's A STAR IS BORN looks, against perhaps all odds, pretty damn good (well, it will depend on your tolerance for Bradley Cooper in hats). Lady Gaga, in two minutes, seems like a movie star. This is a lock for #TIFF18 ... or it *should* be. #CinemaCon
