Here comes the very funny theatrical trailer for Amanda Sthers’ comedy “Madame”, starring Toni Collette, Harvey Keitel and Rossy de Palma. Adding a little spice to a waning marriage, Anne and Bob (Toni Collette and Keitel), a wealthy and well-connected American couple move into a manor house in romantic Paris. While preparing a particularly luxurious dinner for sophisticated international friends, our hostess discovers there are 13 guests. Panic-stricken, Anne insists her loyal maid, Maria (de Palma), disguise herself as a mysterious Spanish noblewoman to even out the numbers. But a little too much wine and some playful chat lead Maria to accidentally endear herself to a dandy British art broker (Smiley). Their budding romance will have Anne chasing her maid around Paris and finally plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair.” No official US release date, but the film will be released in Australian theaters on August 17, 2017. Screencaptures from the trailer have been added to the photo gallery.

Last week, “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage Blu-Ray” has been released in the United States on demand, DVD, Blu-Ray. It’s not your typical Toni movie, but since there are no typical Toni movies anyway it has been fun to see her doing some popcorn action gun-wielding (that was a spoiler) flick opposite Vin Diesel and a bunch of performances straight out of a video game. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray as well as from the making of featurette have been added to the photo gallery.

Yet another new project for Toni on the horizon which, once again, sounds very intriguing. According to Deadline, Toni Collette has just optioned the novel and screenplay The Best of Adam Sharp from red hot author Graeme Simsion who also penned The Rosie Project set up over at Tri-Star. Adam Sharp, which is kind of a High Fidelity for 40-somethings, is one of the first that Collette has brought to her newly formed production company Vocab Films. Her producing partner is Jen Turner. The Best of Adam Sharp (published via St. Martin’s Press) is about a man (Adam) on the cusp of fifty who is restless as his marriage has gone stale. He can’t quite forget a romance he had twenty years ago with an intelligent and strong-willed woman named Angelina Brown who taught him what it meant to find—and then lose—love. He wonders how different would his life be if he hadn’t let her go. Out of the blue, he gets a one word email from Angelina. He responds and his life takes a significant turn. Collette will play the lead female role, Angelina.

According to Variety, Whoopi Goldberg and Giancarlo Esposito are set to join Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church in “Shriver,” a comedy of mistaken identity being introduced to buyers at Cannes by Content Media. The film, directed by Michael Maren, turns on a loner (Church) who is mistaken for a famous author at a literary conference and who falls for the conference organizer (Collette). The man nearly pulls off the deception before the real author shows up and causes havoc. The screenplay, by Maren, is adapted from the novel “Shriver” by Chris Belden. “From the very beginning we just loved the clever premise,” Jamie Carmichael, Content’s president of film said. Josh Kesselman and Alfred Sapse of Thruline are producing.

“Unlocked” has premiered in UK theaters on Friday. Reviews have been favorable to mixed, all describing it as a female Bourne-story with praise for Rapace and criticism on the plot – but not as bad as one would have feared for a film that has been shelfed for over two years. Here’s a selection of reviews from the British press, highlighting Toni’s performance (and her much-mentioned Annie Lennox hairdo), production stills can be found below.

The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw, May 05, 2017
Veteran director Michael Apted has put together an entertaining espionage action-thriller, on the time-honoured theme of the agent going rogue because the bosses are complicit in the dirty dealing; Apted is working with a script from feature newcomer Peter O’Brien. It doesn’t break much in the way of new ground, but that isn’t exactly the point – it rattles along and Apted tackles it with gusto. It’s also satisfying to see Toni Collette let rip with a machine gun.

Variety, Guy Lodge, May 07, 2017
As the Hollywood casting search for a new, rebooted Lisbeth Salander starts up again, spare a thought for poor Noomi Rapace. Having stepped aside for Rooney Mara in David Fincher’s 2011 film, the original girl with the dragon tattoo is still proving her mettle for the part in far lesser vehicles like “Unlocked” — an anonymously enjoyable espionage thriller that, for purposes of memory, all but self-destructs the second the closing credits begin to roll. Collette, given the least to do of the headliners, but rocking a machine gun and platinum pixie crop with equally lethal aplomb.

The Guardian, Simran Hans, May 07, 2017
islamic State, MI5, a deadly virus and a neck-tattooed Orlando Bloom: screenwriter Peter O’Brien throws everything at the wall in this derivative thriller. Nothing sticks. With a cast of A-listers including John Malkovich, Michael Douglas and Toni Collette, not to mention Rapace herself, you’d expect at least one performance capable of cutting through the script’s sludge. Still, worth a hate-watch if only to hear Bloom’s former marine declare in full EastEnders mode: “I love a tagine.”

The Telegraph, Robbie Colin, May 04, 2017
Think of Unlocked as the dress-down Friday of contemporary espionage thrillers. Everyone who was supposed to turn up seems to be there, in some shape or form, but in their eyes you virtually can see the stopwatch counting down to 6pm. Set in a scrupulously true-to-life version of London’s East End, Michael Apted’s film centres on former CIA interrogator Alice Racine (Noomi Rapace), who investigates an Islamist terror plot only to find herself embroiled in a web of inter-agency triple and quadruple crosses. She’s Bourne within the sound of Bow bells, essentially, but the film’s attempt to combine mainstream action and timely social realism results in the kind of sticky mess that should have been easily avoided.
