TORONTO — This year’s edition of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) may as well be subtitled “A celebration of Benedict Cumberbatch.”

The 37-year-old British actor, who recently appeared in the blockbuster Star Trek Into Darkness, has several films making their world debut at the festival, including 12 Years a Slave with Brad Pitt and August: Osage County co-starring Meryl Streep.

Cumberbatch also stars in TIFF’s opening night presentation, The Fifth Estate. He portrays WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in Bill Condon’s film about Assange and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Bruhl).

Cumberbatch is certain to walk some red carpets at TIFF and will return to the city in the winter to film Crimson Peak.
