“Hector and the Search for Happiness” will be shown as a special presentation at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Hector is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. Deciding to break out of his deluded routine, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive formula for true happiness? and so begins his larger-than-life adventure with riotously funny results. Accompanying these news is a new US trailer for the film.
Foxtel has released a first teaser trailer for the upcoming miniseries “Devil’s Playground”. It looks really exciting and not to be missed. I was surprised that Toni’s character was featured a lot. Back when it was shot, word had it that her scenes were shot on just one day. So hopefully there’s still enough to bee seen throughout the series. “Devil’s Playground”, which is directed by Rachel Ward, premieres this September in Australia. Edit: Two pictures from the miniseries have been added as well.
A first teaser trailer for the upcoming drama “Glassland” has been released, alongside two production stills featuring Toni Collette. The Dublin-set drama is a portrayal of the grim reality of life for those forced to the edges of society in contemporary Ireland. ‘Glassland’ will make its world premiere later this month at the Galway Film Fleadh. In a desperate bid to save his mother from a crippling alcohol addiction and reunite his broken family, John, a young taxi driver on the fringes of the criminal underworld is forced to take a job which will see him pushed further into Dublin’s dark underbelly. But will he be prepared to act when the time comes, knowing that whatever he decides to do, his and his family’s lives will be changed forever?
Also yesterday, Toni and Pierce Brosnan have attended the New York premiere of “A Long Way Down”. The film, based on Nick Hornby’s book, has its US release on July 11. The film has released European cinemas between March-May already to less than charming reviews. Having seen it back then, it’s worth a watch if you’ve enjoyed the book. 200 pictures from the premiere have been added to the photo gallery. Big thanks to Mari for sending in some wonderful HQs. Enjoy the new additions.
