Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club was announced as part of the Toronto Film Festival lineup this morning.

Starring Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Sam Reid the film centers on two first-year students at Oxford University who join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.

The movie is described as “a scathing dissection of the British class system” and the TIFF screening will serve as its world premiere.

The trailer was released a little while ago, but it missed our news beat, so here it is, along with the official synopsis:

A privileged young man is inducted into the exclusive, debaucherous company of Oxford’s elite “Riot Club,” in this scathing dissection of the British class system.

No U.S. distribution yet, but it opens in the U.K. on September 19th 2014.

As Paul McGuigan puts the finishing touches on his version of the Frankenstein tale, starring James McAvoy, Daniel Radcliffe and Jessica Brown Findlay, it’s picked up both a new title and a new synopsis.

20th Century Fox revealed this morning that McGuigan’s Frankenstein is now going by the title Victor Frankenstein. That name ought to please the sticklers who are always smugly pointing out that Frankenstein is the name of the doctor, not the monster.

Despite the title, Victor Frankenstein is really Igor’s tale. Here’s the official synopsis:

James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.

Frankenstein and his monster were originally creations of novelist Mary Shelley, but Igor wasn’t conceived until Universal adapted Shelley’s book into a film series in the ’30s. He’s cropped up in many other forms and in many other places since then, but the Max Landis-scripted Victor Frankenstein is the rare retelling to put Igor front and center.

Victor Frankenstein has been in the works for a few years already. Shawn Levy was set to direct at one point, but at some point that job shifted over to McGuigan. The film was originally supposed to open in fall 2014, then early 2015, and now it’s scheduled for October 2, 2015.

Jess Brown Findlay can be seen alongside Max Irons, a member of the infamous Riot Club – inspired by Oxford’s real-life Bullingdon Club which counts Prime Minister David Cameron and Mayor of London Boris Johnson among its past members.

Irons stars in The Riot Club – a new film based on Laura Wade’s award-winning stage play Posh – which has released its first full trailer also featuring Douglas Booth (Noah), Freddie Fox (Parade’s End) and The Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin, as well as Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown-Findlay, Holliday Grainger (Great Expectations) and Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer.

Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Eductation) and set at Oxford University (“where rich kids first taste power”), the film charts the course of one riotous evening gone bad for this crop of young, spoilt-rotten students.

The Riot Club will hit Cinemas on September 19th 2014.

ARC Entertainment has debuted this first trailer for Andrew Levitas’ ensemble drama Lullaby, which opens on June 13th. Starring the likes of Garrett Hedlund, Richard Jenkins, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Anne Archer, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Barden, the synopsis for the film is as follows.

Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours’ time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. Robert (Jenkins) fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients’ rights and what it truly means to be free. Jonathan reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother (Archer), sister (Brown-Findlay), and his love (Adams) and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts—a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient (Barden) and a no-nonsense nurse (Hudson). Through this intensely life-affirming prism, an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness unfolds.

Its rumored that Jessica Brown Findlay will join Miranda Richardson and Naveen Andrews in the Comedy Full Bodied, we have a little plot summer available too…

If you’ve got the bottle, with a little planning you can dine free-of-charge every night in London’s smartest restaurants, and leave with very pricey vintage wine under your wing. Artful bill-dodgers, Terry Morris and Dick York, have acquired a taste for expensive wine. Too expensive; their palettes are becoming ever more refined, much to the bemusement of their friends. Terry has what is known as, “the mouth”. Not a natural scholar; nethertheless he’s the brains behind the wine scams. His rough charm and quick wit ensure he has more success with women than is morally acceptable. Dick is living proof that a university education guarantees you the pick of the best low-paid shop work; an amateur connoisseur in the field of wine – a confirmed amateur in the field of women. Rosalind Downing is a young actress from a famous acting family. She’s icily unimpressed by all of Terry’s usually failsafe lines, until her Aunt needs to retrieve her priceless bottle of Margaux. Professor Hermione Radcliffe is a famous academic with a secret identity as a High Priestess of Isis – leader of the ancient cult of Nefertiti. Harry Cutler & Sons; four generations of this East End family have lived and worked at the same Smithfield butchers. Terry and Dick’s mate Chopsy, aka Russell Cutler and his bullying father Gordon, are the current proprietors. Chopsy’s great grandfather Harry disappeared in strange circumstances. You can’t claim to be a wine connoisseur until you’ve sampled a bottle of Margaux. Undaunted by the price, age or circumstances, Terry still has a 1932 vintage away at The Ivy but the true cost to the boys has yet to dawn on them.
