Despite the tragedy in Toronto, the Toronto International Film Festival will continue to roll on. With news breaking a little earlier today that “Ben is Back” had set the festival as it’s world premiere, we now get the list of the other films to make their debut at one of the biggest festivals in the world.

There are some big world premieres to announce in the group. Among them are “Widows,” “Ben is Back,” “Beautiful Boy,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” and “Life Itself.” It also gives some insight into potential Telluride films, including “First Man,” “The Front Runner” and “Cold War.” Time will tell
