The 38th annual Toronto International Film Festival kicked off on Thursday (September 5) with "The Fifth Estate," the big screen adaptation of the story behind WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange. The film's star Benedict Cumberbatch greeted fans before hitting the red carpet. In all, some 366 films, including 146 world premieres, will screen over 11 days at the festival.
From Toronto to London, Naomi Watts hit the red carpet for the premiere of her film, "Diana." The long-anticipated movie tells the story of the last two years of the Princess of Wales' life, depicting her as she embarks on a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon.
And in Los Angeles, Simon Cowell attended a launch party of the latest season of his U.S. show, "The X Factor." Cowell told the media that he's excited about his impending fatherhood and that it was "an amazing sensation" to see the baby's first ultrasound. Cowell made tabloid headlines last month when it was revealed that he is having a son with his friend's ex-wife.
Finally, One Direction will release new music this fall - their third studio album. The British boy band will put out "Midnight Memories" on November 25. The album will include the group's hit single, "Best Song Ever."
