It turns out, that not only will Damien Chazelle be having an “In Conversation With …” at TIFF, but he will also be presenting exclusive footage of his upcoming “Babylon.”
Not much else is currently known about what will be shown. Maybe it’s the same trailer shown at Comic-Con earlier this summer or maybe, as I’m being told, it’s actual non-interrupted footage of “Babylon.”
TIFF boss Cameron Bailey will be moderating the conversation with Chazelle on Monday, September 12th. The “La La Land” filmmaker will talk about his impressive directorial career and what lies ahead in the future for him.
“Babylon” is currently slated to roll out in theaters on Christmas Day. The film stars Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Diego Calva and Jean Smart. It is said that Chazelle’s upcoming epic runs at a whopping 3 hours.
Damien Chazelle’s latest film “Babylon” dazzled with its Old Hollywood glamour and other more eccentric charms and mayhem at CinemaCon on Thursday, one of the showpieces of Paramount’s presentation.
Chazelle’s film, which is a “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” reunion of Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, has a lot of style, some jazz but also some madcap humor, including a closing scene to the trailer in which Pitt’s producing tent is precariously located next to where an elaborate battlefield is staging a period war scene, only for a spear to come flying in inches next to his head. Don’t worry, he was unfazed and merely used the moment to berate his prop’s guy.
Brad Pitt has been busy this summer making his press rounds for his new film Bullet Train—you may have seen him rock a fabulous linen skirt on the red carpet. But behind the scenes, the actor has been quietly working on a new passion project all together: designing a fashion line. Pitt is the cofounder of a new luxury cashmere line titled God’s True Cashmere, along with close friend Sat Hari, a jewelry designer and holistic healer. Their new collection officially launches in Selfridges today. It’s the first major department store, and first retailer in the UK, to carry the line marking a new chapter for the brand. (The brand was first carried by Paola Russo’s curated boutique Just One Eye in LA. The boutique proved to be a key supporter for the brand and integral to its growth.) “It felt like a natural evolution,” Pitt tells Vogue over Zoom of the line’s expansion. “[Selfridges] curates really well.”

Don’t let Brad Pitt’s Ladybug fool you in “Bullet Train.” In the trailer alone for the action comedy, Pitt’s curiously code-named assassin gets table-slammed, stabbed, thrown through a glass door and pulled out of the high-speed Japanese train.
Not a problem for Pitt. Even at the road-tested age of 58, the Oscar-winning star had his stunt double-turned-director, David Leitch, watching his back.
“Yeah, it was always, ‘If it’s going to hurt, get Leitch,’ ” says Pitt of their early days as a team, laughing during a Zoom call with Leitch, 46. “I’ve never had a stunt double like Dave, that kind of collaboration. It’s just different now. And then he becomes a director, full circle. It’s just an amazing story. This kind of thing doesn’t happen.”
