New York Magazine’s Vulture has a great lenghty interview with Toni Collette ahead of today’s “Hereditary” release. While they warn you that the interview features “some spoilers”, be aware that it features massive big-ass spoilers which you wouldn’t want to know if you’re going to see the film. This being said, here’s a preview alongside some amazing editorial pictures. The complete interview can be read over at Vulture: In the upcoming horror film Hereditary, written and directed by first-timer Ari Aster, Toni Collette conveys the entire spectrum of human emotion over the course of two terrifying hours. As Annie Graham — a woman who’s just lost her mother and begins to suspect she doesn’t know the entire truth about her complicated family — she’s at once a grieving daughter, a loving wife, a furious and protective mother, an impressionable follower, a confident artist, and a paranoid insomniac (and that’s just the first hour). “When this was sent to me, I had already said to my agent, ‘I don’t want to do anything heavy,’” Collette says. “’Don’t even think about sending me anything heavy.’ He called me, sheepishly: ‘I think you should be in this.’ He was right. I fucking love it, and I hate him for sending it.”

Today, both “Hereditary” and “Hearts Beat Loud” will release in theaters across the United States. It’s been exciting to cover the press tour for “Hereditary” and especially seeing Toni Collette receiving so much praise for a lead role once again. I hope the film will find its audience and keep up with the frenetic praise it has received. I myself can’t wait to see it. The Hollywood Reporter has a prognosis on its box office chances, as it releases among the all-female “Oceans 8” and another arthouse-thriller, “Hotel Artemis”. This weekend’s two other new entries are A24’s critically acclaimed supernatural horror pic “Hereditary” and Global Road’s “Hotel Artemis”, both of which are tracking to bow in the $6 million-$8 million range. “Hereditary”, which premiered in the midnight section of the Sundance Film Festival in January, marks the feature directorial debut of Ari Aster and stars Tony Collette opposite Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd and Gabriel Byrne. The story follows a family who is haunted following the death of the clan’s matriarch. So, grab your friends – or your mother if you dare – and enjoy “Hereditary” on the full screen.

The A24-hosted New York premiere for “Hereditary” took place yesterday evening, and the whole Graham family – Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff and Milly Shapiro – joined director Ari Aster on the red carpet. Pictures from the screening, as well as a couple of pictures from the tapings of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Good Morning America”, have been added to the photo gallery.

The “Hereditary” promotion tour has landed back in the United States. Yesterday, Toni was a guest on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” – her first visit to the show – talking about the film, being a “surprise Australian” and the old story of the faked appendix. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery and the video can be re-watched in the video archive. Enjoy.

Here’s a great interview with Ari Aster and Toni Collette by Time Out New York: Outside: a thick snowfall. An icy midnight silence. But if you were in the theater during that shivery January weekend when Hereditary first traumatized its Sundance audiences, you were surrounded by a riot of noises. They mostly came from those of us in the crowd: low moans of dread exploding into full-throated shrieks, then laughter at how completely owned we were. A hypnotic stretch of stillness, followed by a quiet, John Carpenter–worthy reveal (and a wave of impressed applause). Finally, afterward, loading into the festival bus in a stunned, post-film daze, one perverse viewer clucked his tongue—a recurring motif in the movie—and everybody jumped. “Thanks a lot,” someone groused. “The hyperbole has been fun to soak in,” admits 31-year-old writer-director Ari Aster, responding to the praise that’s mushroomed around his feature debut, a supernatural nightmare about a suburban family’s descent into hell. “I think that’s probably not healthy,” he adds quickly. “I wasn’t aiming to make a horror landmark—I was aiming to make a horror film that I would like. Because I haven’t liked any in a long time.” Over a few beers at April’s genre-centric Overlook Film Festival in New Orleans, where Hereditary also killed, Aster is a sweet guy, prone to shy smiles, thoughtful pauses and self-deprecation. He’s somebody who listens to Martin Scorsese interviews on his iPhone, a geek who’d rather chat about Criterion Blu-rays than opening grosses. The complete interview can be read here.
