Los Angeles Times - - Calendar - — Amy Kauf­man

“Love and Other Drugs,” Ed­ward Zwick’s new film about the in­tox­i­cat­ing power of love star­ring Anne Hath­away and Jake Gyl­len­haal, will pre­miere as the open­ing night film of the 2010 AFI Fest. “Black Swan,” Dar­ren Aronof­sky’s su­per­nat­u­ral bal­let drama with Natalie Port­man, will close the event, it was an­nounced Thurs­day.

The re­spected lo­cal fes­ti­val — part of the Amer­i­can Film In­sti­tute’s pro­gram — is cel­e­brat­ing its 24th year, and will be held Nov. 4-11 in Hollywood.

Both Zwick and Aronof­sky are alumni of the AFI Con­ser­va­tory, as is the guest artis­tic di­rec­tor of the fes­ti­val this year, David Lynch.
