The film festival, which has been described as the largest and most influential of its kind, attracts some of Hollywood’s top players as they gather to promote their respective films throughout the 10-day fest – and put their names on the map for early Oscar recognition. From Sept. 8-18, a slew of A-list stars will be attending red-carpet premieres, answering fan and critics’ questions at press conferences, attending gala presentations, and of course, partying it up at various exclusive parties and events. This year’s festival lineup features big-name stars promoting buzzed-about films including Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone for the romantic musical La La Land, Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis, who team up in the action-thriller Colossal, Amy Adams, who stars in Arrival, Lupita Nyong’o for her role in Queen of Katwe, and Bryan Cranston and Jennifer Garner who star as husband and wife in Wakefield.
