‘Nebraska,’ ‘Walter Mitty,’ ‘Out Of The Furnace’ Join AFI Lineup

'Saving Mr. Banks' launches fest on Nov. 7

The AFI Fest has added a trio of titles to its lineup — Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and the world premiere of Scott Cooper’s “Out of the Furnace.”

The “centerpiece gala” films will screen at the Chinese Theater.

“Furnace,” starring Christian Bale, Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson, will screen on Nov. 9. “Nebraska,” which launched at Cannes in May, will screen on Nov. 11 and include a tribute to star Bruce Dern.

Walter Mitty,” directed by and starring Stiller and produced by AFI Conservatory alumnus Stuart Cornfeld, will screen on Nov. 13.

The AFI Fest is still searching a replacement for Sony Classics’ “Foxcatcher,” which had been set for a Nov. 8 world premiere at the Chinese Theater before being pushed back to next year.

The AFI announced four weeks ago that the North American premiere of Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” starring Tom Hanks, would launch the festival on Nov. 7. “Inside Llewyn Davis” is the closing night film on Nov. 14.
