As expected due to the coronavirus pandemic, Bleecker Street’s “Dream Horse”, which was supposed to release theaters on April 17, has been moved to a September 04, 2020 release date in the United Kingdom. Guillermo del Toro’s “Nightmare Alley” has also suspended production indefinitely. The decision was made on behalf of Disney, which is putting a hold on nearly all of its live-action productions at the moment, including 20th Century and Searchlight projects. Del Toro’s “Nightmare Alley” is adapted by the filmmaker and film critic Kim Morgan from the 1946 William Lindsay Gresham novel of the same name. The project is Del Toro’s first since “The Shape of Water,” which took home top Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director. The ensemble cast includes Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, Ron Perlman, Rooney Mara, and David Strathairn. Del Toro kicked off production at the end of January and had been shooting the film in Toronto. “Nightmare Alley” casts Cooper as an ambitious carnival worker with a talent for manipulating people with his words. Cooper’s character uses his gift to carry out con jobs, but his life is thrown into disarray after he falls for a mysterious psychiatrist (Blanchett) who proves far more dangerous than he could ever image. The carnival cast includes carnival worker Molly (Mara), head barker Clem (Willem Dafoe), and del Toro’s “Hellboy” actor Perlman as Bruno the Strongman. Jenkins, an Oscar nominee for “Shape of Water,” stars in the part of the high society crowd as wealthy industrialist Ezra Grindle.” Disney and Searchlight never assigned a release date for “Nightmare Alley,” but many were hoping the movie would turn up on the fall festival circuit and be ready for the upcoming awards season. Those release wishes are now in jeopardy now that production is on hold indefinitely.

Warner Bros has debuted a new trailer and poster for the upcoming feel-good story ‘Dream Horse’ featuring Toni Collette with a welsh accent. The story follows Jan Vokes, a cleaner and bartender, who recruits her initially reluctant husband Brian and local accountant Howard Davies to help her bring together a syndicate of local people to breed a foal – which they name Dream Alliance. On the racetrack, he proves himself to be more than a match for the multi-million-pound racehorses he comes up against – a true working-class champion, taking on the establishment at their own game. But much more than this, Dream begins to alter the lives of everyone in the syndicate, not least Jan’s. He is everything to her: friend, confidant and an escape from a life of always putting other people’s needs first. Directed by Euros Lyn the film also stars Damian Lewis, Owen Teale, Joanna Page, Karl Johnson, with Nicholas Farrell and Siân Phillips alongside Collette. The film has a UK release of April 17th. Screencaptures from the trailer as well as the US and UK poster have been added as well.

Better late than never, I have managed to add all promotional videos and photoshoots from last week’s Sundance Film Festival to the archives. It’s a lot! Euros Lyn, the director of “Dream Horse”, and Toni Collette have visited all the relevant studio sites for interviews on the film, the Oscars and working in Wales. The film has received very positive and well-meaning reviews so far (The Hollywood Reporter gave the film “every chance of sprinting to victory at the box office finish line […] crowned by the reliably excellent Toni Collette”, which is a great barometer ahead of its April release in the United Kingdom. For a complete list of all added material, have a look at the list below.

Toni Collette is returning to Park City this year with Dream Horse, an inspiring underdog film based on a true story, as Entertainment Weekly reports. The Oscar-nominated actress, who won a Critics’ Choice Award earlier this year for her turn in Netflix’s Unbelievable, stars as Jan Vokes, a bartender struggling to find meaning in her life, in the anticipated Sundance premiere. One night, a chance encounter with an arrogant customer, Howard Davies (Damian Lewis), a former racehorse syndicate leader, inspires her to take on a new challenge. Despite her parents’ skepticism, Jan recruits neighbors and barflies alike into a crazy scheme to contribute to a community fund and breed a racehorse. EW can debut an exclusive clip from the film in which Collette’s Jan and a team around her watch the Dream Horse in action. “It’s got spirit,” Jan is told. “Character.” “Making Dream Horse was a truly wonderful experience,” Collette tells EW. “It has the biggest heart of any film I have ever been a part of. I can’t wait to see it with an audience at Sundance.” Directed by Euros Lyn (Kiri), Dream Horse takes the subject of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival feature Dark Horse. The film marks the Park City return of Sundance regular Collette; some of her biggest past hits at the festival include Oscar winner Little Miss Sunshine and A24 sensation Hereditary.
