This morning, Toni Collette and the “Hereditary” crew have attended the Sundance Film Festival London’s Filmmaker and Press Breakfast. As far as I’m concerned, there will be a Q&A on the film later today. For now, check out pictures from the event in our photo gallery.

The Los Angeles Times has published a terrific article and interview with Toni Collette today. An excerpt can be read below and the full article is available on their website. Toni Collette wasn’t looking for darkness when “Hereditary” came calling. But when the darkness found her – in the form of the unnerving saga of the Grahams, an American family haunted by tragedy, mental illness, and perhaps something supernatural – the opportunity was too delicious to pass up. “I wasn’t interested in doing anything heavy, but I picked up the script and I couldn’t stop reading it,” the Australian native explained one May morning, slipping into the same busy Westside eatery where, just over a year ago, writer-director Ari Aster convinced her to take the plunge and play a woman who begins to unlock cryptic family secrets after the death of her own estranged mother. The result, a claustrophobic chiller that distributor A24 releases June 8, features one of the most dynamic and memorable performances of Collette’s career, in what critics are calling the scariest film in years. Collette’s Annie Graham is many things. A miniatures artist who fills her home studio with dioramas of her own life, she recreates memories as a means of reclaiming control. A mother of two with a strained relationship with her own mom, she is overprotective of one of her children, and coldly resentful of the other. And when the unthinkable strikes, she struggles to cope with a sense of powerlessness that gives way to relentless dread as Aster spins his crumbling, nightmarish narrative.

A24 has started the promotional tour for “Hereditary”, which will be in full swing by the end of the week. After a press junket in Los Angeles last week, from which video interviews are now being released here and there as we speak, Toni will be in London to attend the British Sundance Film Festival to talk about the film and will also be a guest on Friday’s “The Graham Norton Show”. Quite a few reviews are being released already for the film’s June 15 release, but this time I’ve decided to not read anything and see the film without any spoilers. The first batch of press junket interviews have been added to the video archive, pictures from the event can be found in the photo gallery and below is IMDb’s chat with Toni and co-star Alex Wolff. Enjoy and check back for more updates this week.

Toni Collette graces the cover of Sunday’s Stellar Magazine in Australia. Subscribers to their site can read it online. Here’s a snippet from the Daily Mail: Toni Collette has revealed how she has balanced motherhood with her Hollywood acting career. The 45-year-old described juggling both acting and family life as ‘maddening’ at times, during her interview with Stellar. ‘But it’s worth it in the end because, as I say, both areas of my life are really, really important to me,’ she said. More bits can be read here. Also, Britain’s Empire Magazine has a great Summer Movie guide with a great review on “Hereditary” and a special on past and recent horror classics. Edit: I’ve added scans from both Stellar Magazine and the Australian Sunday Times to the photo gallery, both run the same article but with different pictures.

This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day, that annual celebration when we all let our moms know just how much they mean to us. Some of us do it with flowers, some with chocolate, and some with the perfect card that says everything that’s in our hearts. But this year why not get the woman that raised you something different? Like two ticket movie tickets for a fun night out. Though based on the new “Happy Mother’s Day” trailer for the horror film Hereditary, you might need to find a less traumatizing way to say “I love you.” The latest teaser for Hereditary–a movie so scary it had audiences at the Sundance Film Festival losing their minds, and (hilariously) terrorized parents and children when a trailer for it accidentally aired before Peter Rabbit–wishes all the moms out their a Happy Mother’s Day this year. But hopefully none of our moms will be haunted by demons and burning men on their special holiday–or any other day–the way Toni Collette is here.
