'Demolition,' Michael Moore Kick off Toronto Film Festival

Thursday, 10 September 2015 06:00 PM

TORONTO (AP) — The 40th Toronto International Film Festival kicks off Thursday night with a double bill of drama and politics.

The official opening night premiere is "Demolition," the latest from the Quebecois filmmaker and "Dallas Buyers Club" director Jean-Marc Vallee. Though it won't hit theaters until April, "Demolition" will start the festival off with one of Canada's top directors, in a film starring Jake Gyllenhaal as an unraveling investment banker.

The more explosive fireworks of opening night may come in the evening's second major premiere: Michael Moore's "Where to Invade Next." The programming of Moore's first documentary in six years — an investigation of the American military industrial complex — doubled as a revelation of its existence. As he typically does, Moore made the film clandestinely.
