Reel News: The Social Network to open Tokyo Film Festival + other happenings

Big news for David Fincher, Ben Affleck and their respective casts as it was announced earlier today that The Social Network will open the Tokyo International Film Festival, while The Town is scheduled to finish off fest which will run from October 23-31. [Variety]

  • Other Oscar-buzzed films such as Black Swan, 127 Hours, Blue Valentine and Conviction will be headed to the 17th annual Austin Film Festival from October  21-28. Hopefully, yours truly will be able to drive down to see a few films.  Keep those fingers crossed! [The Hollywood Reporter]
  • Co-stars Julianne Moore and Annette Bening will attempt to go toe to toe this awards season, as Focus Features have announced that both actresses will be campaigned for Best Actress nominations.  Both are probably a lock for nominations, but if I’m an Oscar voter I’m going with Moore in this match-up. [The Hollywood Reporter]
  • With a little help from his friends, Tim Burton is putting together a stellar vocal cast for his latest film ‘Frankenweenie’. The stop animated Disney film, based on a 1984 short about a man who revives his dog after it’s hit by a car, will feature the vocal stylings of Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara,  Martin Landau and Martin Short; all of whom have worked with Burton on previous projects.
