The Toronto International Film Festival 2022 Movie Scorecard

See every movie playing at TIFF that’s getting enough reviews for a Tomatometer! The fest is opening with Sally El Hosaini’s The Swimmers and will close with Mary Harron’s Daliland, with TIFF Tribue Awards going to Brendan Fraser for The Whale, director Sam Mendes and his Empire of Light, and acting ensemble award recognition for the entire cast of My Policeman. Major name directors debuting new films include Martin McDonagh (back after his Best Picture-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with The Banshees of Inisherin), Peter Farrelly (after winning Best Picture with Green Book, he’s going on The Greatest Beer Run Ever), Steven Spielberg (re-creating his youth in The Fabelmans), Rian Johnson (extending Knives Out with sequel Glass Onion), and Gina Prince-Bythewood, delivering a historical action epic with The Woman King. We’ll be updating the list with the newest Tomatometer-christened films until TIFF’s close on September 18th. Alex Vo
