The early reviews are quite positive for a trio of movies filmed in Cincinnati – Robert Redford's The Old Man & The Gun, the backwoods Donnybrook fight and Emilio Estevez's The Public.

All three were screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, which ends Sunday Sept. 16.

Three weeks after Gillian Anderson's "UFO" debuts Sept. 4 on digital and DVD, Robert Redford's "The Old Man And The Gun" premieres in theaters.

Here's an update on release information for films shot in Greater Cincinnati:

A mob of reporters shouted questions at Christian Slater outside the downtown Main Public Library's Ninth Street entrance about 11 p.m. Wednesday night, while surrounded by Cincinnati Police cars and an ambulance.

TV vans from WLWT-TV and WKRC-TV, plus two WCPO-TV news vehicles (a van and the huge satellite transmission truck), were parked by the library. But you didn't see this on late newscasts.
