Fantasia 2017 Final Announcements

Late last month we brought you the first wave of announcement’s for the forthcoming Fantasia International Film Festival. It was already shaping up nicely with a special screening of Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and the likes of Replace, 68 Kill, and A Ghost Story, on the bill. But now things are even more brilliant as the full line-up is here, and there are yet another couple of stunners. Atomic Blonde, the Charlize Theron actioner from David Leitch, one of directors of John Wick, and the 3D restoration of James Cameron’s masterpiece – Terminator 2: Judgement Day, will both have very special screenings during the festival.

Kicking off the final list of films is the movie that will close the festival, A Taxi Driver. Directed by Jang Hoon, one of Korea’s most talented filmmakers, A Taxi Driver stars Song Kang-ho (The Host, Snowpiercer) in a career-defining performance in what is being touted as an unforgettable historic drama. Robert Pattinson’s Good Time continues its festival run; we’ve already seen this one and highly recommend that you watch it if you’re attending Fantasia. Other highlights include Patti Cake$Bushwick, and Fashionista, as well as Blood Heist and Blood Ride, two ‘femme-made revisionist exploitation films’ produced by none other than James Franco.
