this morning announced some of their key selections for the Sept. 6-16 event. Here's a look at five trailers to get you in the mood for the fest.

"Argo":

Ben Affleck

is back behind the camera, directing himself in this film based on a true story of how the

CIA

rescued six Americans from

Iran

after militant students stormed

the U.S. Embassy

in Tehran in 1979. The operation involved a cover story using a fake movie called "Argo." The movie stars Affleck as well as Bryan Cranston,

and John Goodman.

, who was in Toronto last year with the

cancer

comedy

"50/50"

is back in 2012 with "Looper," which was chosen as the opening-night film. The movie, directed by Rian Johnson, stars our recent bat-friend as a hired gun living in an era where time travel is possible. The film also stars

Bruce Willis

, along with

Emily Blunt

,

Paul Dano

and Jeff Daniels.

Bill Murray is back center stage in "Hyde Park on Hudson," playing

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

. The year is 1939 and he and wife Eleanor are hosting the queen and king of England for a weekend in upstate New York. FDR's complex domestic affairs make the royals' visit unforgettable. In addition to Murray, the Focus Features film directed by

Roger Michell

stars

Olivia Williams

and

Laura Linney

Keira Knightley

is back with director

Joe Wright

in "Anna Karenina," following their collaborations on "Pride & Prejudice" and "
