Saturday at TIFF was a big day: the films were bigger, the stars were brighter, and even the carpets seemed redder. Saturday saw the premiere of Tony Goldwyn’s Conviction, starring Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell, as well as the star-tramped red carpet for Ben Affleck’s directorial follow-up to Gone Baby Gone, The Town, a heist movie starring Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall, and Chris Cooper. Elsewhere, veteran alt-comic turned guy-who’s-in-every-movie-ever Zach Galifianakis winced his way down the red carpet for his new film, It’s Kind of a Funny Story (which looks like kind of a really schmaltzy story). And as usual, Midnight Madness was a scene, with the premiere of Guy Moshe’s genre-bending Bunraku. The premiere saw Josh Hartnett looking handsome, Woody Harrelson looking kooky, and Ron Perlman looking like the tough sunvabitch he is.
