|The Toronto International Film Festival unveiled Wednesday most of its lineup Cheap Men's Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Peanut Butter Shoes , including the adaptation of Pulitzer winner "August: Osage County", the Nelson Mandela biopic "Long Walk to Freedom" , and the WikiLeaks drama "The Fifth Estate."
Bill Condon's "The Fifth Estate," starring Benedict Cumberbatch as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will kick off the 38th edition of the festival.
The film chronicles the beginnings of WikiLeaks and asks "the defining question of modern time: what are the costs of keeping secrets in a free society -- and what are the costs of exposing them?"
This marks the third straight year the festival opens with a high-profile title, after years of using the opening slot to highlight smaller Canadian films.
"It's a film about what we believe is one of the most important issues of the day: information and who controls it Cheap Men's Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost V2 Sesame Shoes Khaki ," festival artistic director Cameron Bailey told a press conference.
Bailey also announced screenings for some 40 films by directors from South Africa, France, Canada, South Korea, Australia Cheap Men's Adidas Originals EQT Racer 2.0 Shoes Core Black , Germany, the United States and Britain that he said "capture the mood of the times."
These include Justin Chadwick's "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," based on the former South African president's autobiography chronicling his early life, coming of age, education Cheap Adidas Stan Smith Leather Shoes All White , and 27 years in prison before working to rebuild his country's once-segregated society.
"Blue is the Warmest Color," the lesbian love story that won the Palme d'Or for best film at the Cannes Film Festival, will have its North American debut at the festival.
Launched in 1976, Toronto's film festival ranks among the world's top movie events and often serves as a launchpad for international films seeking North American distribution.
It has a solid track record of unearthing films that go on to succeed at the Academy Awards, such as "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech Cheap Women's Adidas Originals Superstar 80s Shoes Core Black ," which won best film Oscars. Last year's winner of the People's Choice award, the festival's top prize, was "Silver Linings Playbook," an Oscar nominee for best picture.
The film festival will get underway on September 5 and run through September 15.
LONDON, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- Almost 7 million people in Britain are planning a mini-break this weekend to mark the country's last public holiday of the summer Cheap Adidas Originals Superstar 80s Metal Toe Shoes Gold Foil , VisitEngland said Wednesday.
The national tourism agency said a survey had shown millions of families were planning an overnight trip somewhere in Britain during the three-day August Bank Holiday period, bringing almost 2.2 million U.S. dollars for the British economy.
And as it is the last holiday weekend before the approaching fall and winter, thousands will go crazy by heading to two world-beating events that are not for the fainthearted.
Inflatable castles are normally a fun experience for the kids, but on Friday the world's largest inflatable obstacle course opens at London's Alexandra Palace. The organisers describe the 272-meter-long Beast as the ultimate "bouncy castle" experience for grown-ups. The extreme fun continues until Monday.
In northern England what has been listed in the top 10 of the world's weirdest sports takes place in the small town of Rossendale. Participants in the World Gravy Wrestling Championships are guaranteed to get all messy as they go head to head in a giant "gravy bowl" on Monday.
Contestants have to wrestle in the gravy for 2 minutes, raising money for charity Cheap Women's Adidas Superstar Supercolor Pack Shoes Light Pink , and firefighters from the local fire station will be there to hose down contestants after their sticky bouts of combat.
"It's without doubt one of the world's craziest culinary competitions," said a spokesman for the organisers.
VisitEngland said the numbers of fun-seekers this weekend is almost 2 million higher than the same period last year when 5.1 million people took a mini-break. Statistics show British people are taking about four million more short-breaks in England than they did a decade ago.
Tourism Minister John Glen said: "Tourism is a key economic driver and job creator, and we want every part of the UK to benefit. It is fantastic that so many people are planning a holiday at home this weekend, generating a boost to the economy."

NAIROBI, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Kenyan police said they have intensified search for an intruder who stormed the rural home of Deputy President William Ruto in Sugoi and later shot and injured a paramilitary officer guarding the fortified residence early on Saturday.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett said the armed suspect had approached Ruto's outer gate at around midday and hit an officer on duty several times with a machete and managed to enter the farm complex.
"Other police officers were quickly mobilized and the intruder was forced to hide at a building that is still under construction," said Boinett said in a statement issued on Saturday evening.
He said the deputy president was neither at the residence Cheap Adidas Originals Superstar 2 Casual Shoes White , nor any member of his family at the time and the residential house is secure. Ruto had left for a political campaign in neighboring county.
"The injured officer is undergoing treatment and is in stable condition. Specialist officers have been deployed to deal with the intruder," Boinett said.
However, sources said three suspects were killed in a shootout with security officers while the fourth wa.
