Netflix film opens Toronto International Film Festival

One of the world's biggest film festivals is kicking off in Toronto.

The Toronto International Film Festival officially begins today with the world premiere of Netflix's Outlaw King starring Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce.

The choice has raised a few eyebrows - this marks the first time a movie from a streaming service opens an international film festival.

Bradley Cooper's directorial debut is also generating some buzz; the remake of A Star Is Born features Cooper as an established musician as he helps a struggling artist's career take off.

Ryan Gosling is teaming back up with La La Land director Damien Chazelle for First Man, a biopic examining the life of Neil Armstrong.

And Steve McQueen's thriller Widows boasts a star studded cast including Viola Davis, Daniel Kaluuya, Liam Neeson, Jacki Weaver, Colin Farrell, and Michelle Rodriguez.

TIFF runs until September 16th.
