 Robert Pattinson #HighLife World Premiere at TIFF

 image host

It’s official, Robert Pattinson #HighLife will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of it’s Galas & Special Presentations program.  The festival runs from 6 to 16 September 2018 and the full schedule will be released on 21 August 2018.  Stay tuned for the premiere date.  In the meantime, let’s have a look at some media reaction:

IndieWire (Eric Kohn)

Claire Denis Could Be Commercial

One of the more anticipated movies at Cannes this year was the latest effort from French auteur Claire Denis, with possibly her first English-language project — a CGI-laced space adventure starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche in the story of criminals traveling to a black hole. It didn’t make the cut at the May festival, and when Bailey saw it in Paris at Denis’ invitation, it still wasn’t quite ready. “I saw it before most of the effects were in,” he said. “She’s doing something brand new, but it’s a science-fiction movie in Claire Denis’ own way. She can do anything.” He singled out Andre Benjamin’s supporting role in the film as worthy of discussion alongside Pattinson and Binoche, and predicted that buyers would be interested. “The major distributors including streaming companies are picking up more titles earlier, but you’re still going to see things like the Claire Denis film that come in with strong sales interest based on the reputation of the filmmaker and the actors involved,” he said.

Claire Denis makes her English language debut with this sci-fi film starring Robert Pattinson. Much of the film has been kept under-wraps, but Denis is one of the best of the best (seek out Trouble Every Day immediately), and Pattinson has grown into a very strong actor. The story focuses on a group of criminals in space, looking for an alternate form of energy. Denis has been trying to make this movie for years – at one point she wanted Philip Seymour Hoffman to star – but now High Life is almost here.

LA Times

“I think one of the most important things we can do is just really highlight and foreground the films by women that we’ll have in the lineup,” Bailey said, noting there are five films directed by women in the galas section alone.  “So there’s great work by women to see,” he said, “and if we can really all work, and that includes journalists and others, if we can all work to foreground those films and get people talking, I think that’s what we’re really hoping to accomplish.”  Aside from the Denis film …

Screen Daily

[Bailey] said he was “especially happy” to present McQueen’s heist thriller and Denis’ sci-fi starring Robert Pattinson.  … The world premiere policy remains the same. All films playing in the first four days of the festival must be world premieres or North American premieres in order to screen at Roy Thomson Hall, Visa Screening Room at the Princess Of Wales Theatre, and the Elgin Theatre. The opening night film must be a world premiere and closing night must be world or international premiere.


Their films likely couldn’t be more different, but Ryan Gosling and Robert Pattinson will both be floating in space this September when Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong biopic First Man and Claire Denis’s sci-fi film High Life arrive at the Toronto International Film Festival. … and the world premiere of High Life, in which revered art-house director Denis casts Pattinson as an unwilling astronaut …

Little White Lies

Claire Denis’ hotly-anticipated High Life, starring Robert Pattinson, and Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight follow-up, If Beale Street Could Talk, are among the main gala highlights, along with the latest works from Olivier Assayas, Michael Winterbottom, Mia Hansen-Løve, Jason Reitman, László Nemes, Yimou Zhang, Jacques Audiard and David Lowery.

The Hollywood Reporter

Elsewhere, Claire Denis’ first English-language feature, High Life, wasn’t ready for Cannes and is headed to Toronto for a gala world premiere, with Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche toplining the spacey drama about a group of criminals sent on a mission into a black hole.


Motivation of enthusiasm: the presence of many Frenchies absent from the Croisette last spring: Claire Denis, Mia Hansen-Loeve, Olivier Assayas or Jacques Audiard. The first for the highly anticipated High Life , SF movie with Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche, …

You know this means we should be seeing a trailer soon.
