Netflix’s “Unbelievable” trailer introduces Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merrit Wever as detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall, who come across two familiar-sounding cases. As Entertainment Weekly reports, hundreds of miles away in a different state, Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever), a teenage girl, filed a police report that claimed she was sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home. The police kept trying to poke holes in her story and ultimately determined she wasn’t credible and that there was no victim in this case. Meanwhile, Grace and Karen discover two new rapes on their own turf with the same M.O. as Marie’s alleged attacker. Thus begins the search for a potential serial rapist.

Does this story already sound familiar? That’s because the series is based on the true events in T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong’s Pulitzer Prize-winning article from ProPublica and The Marshall Project titled “An Unbelievable Story of Rape,” as well as the radio episode of This American Life tackling this same subject, “Anatomy of Doubt.” The trailer description comes with contact information for RAINN’s National Sexual Assault Hotline for anyone who has experienced sexual violence in their lives. The number for the hotline is 800.656.HOPE (4673) and the website is online.rainn.org. Unbelievable debuts on Netflix Sep. 13.

Rian Johnson’s Knives Out is coming into focus with the new trailer. The ensemble cast includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Ana de Armas and Jamie Lee Curtis. “Knives Out” centers on a detective (Craig) investigating a murder when he comes across an eccentric, combative family. “I’ve been a die-hard Agatha Christie fan since I was a teenager,” Johnson said at CinemaCon in April. “Knives Out was my attempt to take everything I love about an Agatha Christie who-done-it, jam it into an all-star cast, give it a Hitchcock thriller, genre twist and set it in modern-day America.” Johnson last directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Before that he built a following for his genre films, such as his noir-tinged debut feature Brick (2006), and the time traveling drama Looper (2012). He is also developing a new trilogy of Star Wars films for Lucasfilm.

Toni Collette has arrived in Munich, Germany, for the shooting of Joe Penna’s scifi triller “Stowaway”, and her co-star Anna Kendrick has posted the first picture from the set on Instagram. This is the second feature from Penna and Ryan Morrison, the duo behind last year’s “Arctic”, which released domestically in February. Penna is directing and co-wrote the script with Morrison, who will also serve as executive producer and editor. XYZ Films is producing “Stowaway” alongside Augenschein Filmproduktion, Rise Pictures and RainMaker Films in association with Yale Productions. XYZ and CAA Media Finance are arranging financing for the film and handling worldwide sales which continue during Cannes. On a mission headed to Mars, an unintended stowaway (Shamier Anderson) accidentally causes severe damage to the spaceship’s life support systems. Facing dwindling resources and a potentially grim outcome, a medical researcher (Anna Kendrick) emerges as the only dissenting voice against the clinical logic of both her commander (Toni Collette) and the ship’s biologist (Daniel Dae Kim).

PJ Hogan’s “Muriel’s Wedding” is perhaps one of most impactful Australian films released in the past 40 years. Not only did the film introduce us to the talents of Toni Collete and Rachel Griffiths, the comedy, set in the fictitious beach community of ‘Porpoise Spit’, also coined numerous phrases such as ‘Deirdre Chambers. What a concidence!’ or ‘You’re terrible Muriel’, which are now part of international folklore. The 2019 Australian International Screen Forum celebrated this landmark film’s 25th anniversary with a special screening, yesterday, and appearance by Muriel herself, Toni Collette, in conversation, alongside her Heslop brother Dan Wyllie. Pictures from the screening and Q&A have been added to the photo gallery.
