Ali   Comments Off on Venice announces premieres of major Oscar contenders Danish Girl

Another film festival for The Danish Girl … this time at the Venice Film Festival.

The festival’s artistic director Alberto Barbera had already announced two big world premieres: the mountaineering drama Everest, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, about the real-life disaster in 1996 when eight climbers died, and Black Mass, the biopic of notorious gangster Whitey Bulger featuring Johnny Depp. Neither will be competing for the Golden Lion; but another headlining world premiere The Danish Girl, directed by Les Miserables’ Tom Hooper and featuring Eddie Redmayne as gender reassignment surgery pioneer Einar Wegener in his first post-Theory of Everything role, will.

The Venice film festival runs from 2-12 September 2015.
