Other films added to the Toronto line-up include Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage's thriller Trespass, Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard's Winnie Mandela drama Winnie, and Gerard Butler's African missionary tale Machine Gun Preacher.

Jason Statham and Robert De Niro's action saga Killer Elite and Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy's comedy Hysteria are also being screened.

Among previously announced Toronto titles is From the Sky Down, a portrait of Irish band U2 - the first documentary ever to open the festival.
