‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’ to Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival


It’s official: Weird: The Al Yankovic Story will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The upcoming biopic starring Daniel Radcliffe as “Weird Al” Yankovic is set for general release November 4 on the Roku Channel. However, today Yankovic announced on Twitter that it will premiere on the opening night of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

The film will follow Yankovic throughout his career and fans can look forward to seeing the whole story from the performer’s perspective. Plus, the trailer proves that Radcliffe really embraced the role as “Weird Al”, and live audiences at TIFF will be among the first to see the former Harry Potter star in all his accordion playing glory.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
