Radioactive and The Two Popes will both be debuting at this year's Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Radioactive is based on Lauren Redniss’s award-winning graphic novel 'Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout'.  Marjane Satrapi’s (Persepolis) biopic stars Rosamund Pike as two-time Nobel Prize–winning scientist Marie Curie, highlighting the groundbreaking discoveries she made with her husband, Pierre (Sam Riley).

The Two Popes is set in 2013 as progressive incoming Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) and conservative outgoing Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) debate the best path forward for the Catholic Church.  A surprisingly funny chamber piece from Oscar-nominated director Fernando Meirelles (City of God).

Union did some amazing work on both of these projects and wish them both the best of luck on the festival circuit.
