10:46 am
see the game change so i'm so excited to be in the building. and as is tradition at the m.t.v. awards there were plenty of fiction graphic and fashion statements about her and a host of stones. but the big story of the evening was the triumphant return of taylor swift who also took home the video for good award and performed love from her new album. the venice film festival kicks off this week and that means locker room dollar cram of the film world heading to italy to watch the biggest film premiere with the biggest stars and we're. about to take
10:47 am
a peek at some of the movies they'll be looking at the festival is also considered a romance of the academy awards next february and to tell us all this means and to garrido's through this she is movies david it's now the oscars a still half a year away david so what is all the fuss about the other half a year away but they're also half a year away robin but i mean for it it's time for the studios to really go into overdrive crank it up and show the academy and all the other awards what they've got and that's what they're doing this is the kickoff to oscar season so i was a big movies primary festival that we should look out for what in terms of hollywood movies and big production values the number one movie i would say is ad astra this is a deep space if i draw my story brad pitt as an astronaut who goes to the edges of our solar system in order to save our planet of course but also to find his father

10:49 am
director james gray said that he wanted to depict space travel the most realistic that anyone had ever seen and any film to date of course c.g.i. is just getting better and better and better so it looks like it may deliver on that yeah it does look good while his hollywood summing up what another big premiere of venice this year is joker this is a new take on the d.c. comics villain that we all know and love or hate this time with joaquin fever you know that you'll need to put me on something i no longer want to. i'm not going to pictures and i think we were trying to see joker with joaquin phoenix well i'll tell you a little bit about it so this version of joker really has a psychological take on the villain with joaquin phoenix playing him as a stand up comedian and there we go stand up comedian who is exposed to the hard knocks of life in his psyche just sort of cracks and then he turns to chaos and the
10:50 am
dark side as well now this is a role that's been played in recent years by a lot of big actors including jared leto heath ledger won an oscar for his portrayal of joker so it's going to be exciting to see what joaquin phoenix. also a great actor brings to this chaos he's a great actor too but it's not all about hollywood walk should be looking at the festival and one movie i am excited to see that we actually just got a little look at there is called the truth this is by japanese director. but it takes place in france and he does something that no french director has managed to do he's brought together 2 of the big icons of french cinema the nov and juliette binoche for the very 1st time in a film can you believe it took a japanese director to do that and a little bit about the movie. plays a big actress must come easy to her and she's just written her memoirs and should it be noticed her place her daughter is not happy with what's in them let's have a quick look at that we sort of tag about. you know that you don't need to be as

10:52 am
a netflix movie that came to venice and it got 10 oscar nominations this year it could be the same thing some very strong movies from netflix have gone out to cannes but again so. venice and one of them is the movie laundromat starring meryl streep i think we've got some pics of that now that flicks hasn't released any trailers of this it's still under wraps here we go so this is this is all we've got this is directed by steven soderbergh about the panama papers scandal this is actually opening the festival another movie from netflix is marriage story which is a comedy drama about marital issues and stars scarlett johansson and adam driver by the wonderful director noah baumbach this promises to be another corky family portrait which is what he does best then is once again clearly benefiting from cancer no netflix policy yeah ok now the good news is also. venice has doubled the number of female driver. to this year as opposed to one last year yeah they came
