In this golden age of comic-book cinema, there are a plethora of superhero options for the young (and young at heart), as well as more serious-minded fare for the grown-up crowd adapted from graphic novels and series like Road to Perdition and American Splendor. The feature debut of Danish director, Andres Walter, who previously won an Oscar for the 2013 live-action short Helium, I Kill Giants — which is currently without a definite release date — occupies that perfect middle ground for young viewers who are hungry for more challenging fare outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, but aren’t quite ready for the graphic violence on display in, say, David Cronenberg’s version of the graphic novel A History of Violence.

The last time we saw red-hot lovers/demon warriors Hellboy and Liz Sherman at the end of 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, the duo were poised to embark on a whole new adventure: parenthood. Earlier this year, Mignola announced plans to reboot the film series originated onscreen by Guillermo del Toro, and starring Ron Perlman as the title creature. No Del Toro and no Perlman also means no Selma Blair, who played the B.R.P.D.’s resident firestarter Liz in the previous films.
Before it died an ignoble death, Tim Burton‘s never-made ’90s blockbuster Superman Lives was poised to take the Man of Steel where no comic book movie had gone before. Burton freely adapted the film from the famous “Death of Superman” storyline, which saw the Kryptonian (played by longtime Superman fan, Nicolas Cage, who proved his devotion to the DC Comics icon by naming his son Kal-El) killed at the hands of the monstrous Doomsday followed by his eventual resurrection. “It would have been beautiful,” Cage tells Yahoo Movies at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the prolific actor’s latest film, the ultra-dark comedy Mom and Dad, premiered to rapturous applause amongst the midnight movie crowd.

It’s rare that a single minute of film dialogue can tell you everything you need to know about a character’s emotional state, but that’s the case with the above exclusive scene from the new comedy Brad’s Status, premiering Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival. Brad (Ben Stiller), looking dubious and disheveled, is getting the low-down on a mutual friend’s wedding that he wasn’t invited to from the much tanner, much healthier, and much wealthier Billy Wearslter (Jemaine Clement). Brad, as he puts it, has just been “doing his thing” — but as the clip reveals, is experiencing a crisis in confidence.
With the fest kicking off on Thursday, here are the world premieres, and potential Oscar contenders, that we are most psyched for.
