Both “Trumbo” and “Eye in the Sky”, Helen’s upcoming films for the end of the year, will have their world premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival. In “Trumbo”, Bryan Cranston stars as blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, whosecontroversy entangled most everyone in showbiz, from red-baiting gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger. In “Eye in the Sky”, Mirren stars alongside Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman and Iain Glen in a timely thriller about a terrorist-targeting drone mission that becomes a flashpoint when a civilian girl enters the kill zone. Premiere dates for both films will be announced closer to the festival’s opening.
