Elton John Doc, ‘Nightbitch,’ ‘The Life of Chuck’ to Premiere at Toronto

The Toronto Film Festival has unveiled its first titles for its upcoming 2024 edition, leading off with world premieres for Elton John: Never Too Late, Mike Flanagan’s The Life of Chuck and Marielle Heller’s Nightbitch, the latter which stars Amy Adams as a stay-at-home-mom whose domestic life takes a surreal turn.

The Life of Chuck is based on the 2020 Stephen King short story of the same name. Toronto, set to run this year from Sept. 5 to 15, also plans career honors for David Cronenberg and Adams as part of its Tribute Awards.

The Elton John doc, from director David Furnish and R.J. Cutler, is set for the gala program at Roy Thomson Hall, as is a world premiere for South Korean director Woo Min-ho’s Harbin — which stars Hyun Bin, Lee Dong-wook, Park Jeong-min and Jeon Yeo-been — and Chris Sanders’ The Wild Robot from DreamWorks Animation.

The Wild Robot is an animated film that stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as Roz, a robot shipwrecked on an island that must adapt to its new surroundings.

Nightbitch, which stars Tom Hiddleston, is booked into the Special Presentations sidebar, as is Sydney Freeland’s Rez Ball, another world premiere in Toronto.
