In September 1994, a small Australian film called “Muriel’s Wedding” became a critical and audience favorite that quickly made its transition to European and American cinemas and pathed the way for its unknown star to launch a successful international career. To celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary, let’s have a look at its road to success and its lasting impact for everyone involved. A special page has been created for the film with background information, video clips from the film’s promotion and a “Where are they now?” section for its key cast members. Enjoy a trip down memory lane!
Variety has been given the trade exclusive on the first image from “Miss You Already,” which stars Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette. Catherine Hardwicke’s relationship drama started lensing in the U.K. earlier this month. Collette and Barrymore play Milly and Jess, who have been best friends since childhood. Their friendship is put to the test as Jess struggles to have a much longed-for baby and Milly finds out she has breast cancer. Principal photography started on Sept. 7, with shooting largely focused on London, and later moving to the Yorkshire Moors, England.
Have a look at these wonderful new pictures of Toni in the current Edit magazine issue – it might be the last time in a while to see Toni with hair! According to their exclusive interview, Toni shaves her head for the upcoming “Miss You Already”, which she is currently shooting with Drew Barrymore in London. And is determined to shed pounds from her already petite frame in order to manifest into the role of Barrymore’s terminally ill best friend. Scans from the magazine can be found in the photo gallery.
“Lucky Them” is one of those recent films that receive critical acclaim, but no theatrical release, which is a real shame. After a delightful premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and a small promotional tour for the film, “Lucky Them” was only limited released in a few New York theaters and on demand at the same time. Those who’d like to have it on DVD get their change later this September. Over 1.000 HD screencaptures from the film have been added to the photo gallery. Many many thanks to Claudia for contributing them, very appreciated! Enjoy the captures.
“A Long Way Down” has been recently released on DVD and Blu-Ray and I have added lots of Blu-Ray captures to the photo gallery. Besides the film, there are also captures from the outtakes, deleted scenes and Toni’s promotional interview. For a complete list, have a look at the previews below.
