In Netflix’s Wanderlust, Toni Collette and Steven Mackintosh star as a married couple (Joy and Ala) who live in a small English town and are coming to some new realizations about what they want from life after a cycling accident puts their sex life on hold. The 6-episode series explores how the two try to make a mutual arrangement to sleep with other people while also staying together, which of course starts off ok and seems to turn pretty messy almost immediately. Though the trailer for the series starts off with comedic undertones, it ends in a very different place. It seems clear that while Joy and Alan’s plans do (at least at some point) end up reinvigorating their own marriage and attraction to one another, it also becomes an emotional flashpoint — no surprise there! – as they become more deeply entangled with the people they are having these other relations, and relationships, with. Wanderlust premieres October 19th on Netflix. The trailer can be watched in the video archive while screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

After an on-demand release two weeks ago, “Hereditary” has been released on Blu-Ray and DVD in the United States today. Needless to say, as it was mentioned by critics ever since its Sundance debut, “Hereditary” is not only one of the best horror films of all times, but also a signature performance by Toni Collette, right on top with “Muriel’s Wedding”, “The Sixth Sense” and “Little Miss Sunshine”. Her performance is brilliant, as is everyone else in the cast. If you’ve missed it in the theater or you’ve been waiting to watch it in the safety of your own home (doesn’t make it better), make sure to grab your copy. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery – with massive spoilers towards the end, you have been warned. Also, screencaptures from the making of featurette and from the deleted scenes have been added as well. Enjoy!

“Wanderlust” premieres on BBC1 tonight, and so far it has received some of the silliest promotion from the British press one can imagine. I won’t bother linking to any of the “most X-rated drama ever”, “groundbreaking sex scenes” and “first orgasm on the BBC”. I assume those who tune in because of these headlines will be in for a disappointment. We’ll find out later today. In the meantime, the Telegraph’s Stella Magazine has run a cover story on Toni this Sunday. Here’s a preview: In the 20-plus years that she’s been on our screens, Toni Collette has tended to avoid playing characters she has much in common with. That, she reasons, would just be boring. It means she wasn’t ever like the awkward Muriel Heslop in her breakout film, Muriel’s Wedding. Nor has she been a suicidal hippie like Fiona in About a Boy. And (as far as she knows) neither of her children sees dead people, as her son in The Sixth Sense did.But Toni’s next role is as a therapist. And within a few minutes of her relaxing into a chair in the West End restaurant where we meet, I suspect she’s fairly good at giving profound advice. You can read the complete article on The Telegraph, in case you have a premium membership for their articles.

“The Yellow Birds” has been released on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 14, following an on-demand release back in June. If your reaction is “The Yellow… what?”, here’s a little catch-up. The contemporary war drama was announced back in 2015 and went on sale at Cannes the next year. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017 and was held back over 1 1/2 years, probably to await the release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story” with its very own Alden Ehrenreich, in hopes to make a bigger splash. As the story goes, “Solo” didn’t make an impression as all, and despite the wait, “The Yellow Birds” was quietly released on-demand and now on home-video. It doesn’t surprise too much, since war movies continue to not have a market for a long time now, and not even Jennifer Aniston’s involvement would secure a solid box office response. She and Toni Collette play the mothers of two boys sent to Iraq, with only one coming back. Make sure to rent or buy it, it’s a solid movie. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery.

Radio Times has answered our question on when “Wanderlust” will finally premiere: It will premiere in the United Kingdom on Tuesday 4th September at 9pm on BBC1, airing on Tuesdays thereafter. The six-part drama is actually a co-production with Netflix and will be available globally outside of the UK on Netflix. Written by award-winning playwright Nick Payne and loosely based on his 2010 theatre production of the same name, it tackles the question of whether lifelong monogamy is possible – or even desirable. The tone is “searingly insightful” but also “funny”. The BBC describes Joy as “a therapist trying to find a way to keep her spark with her husband alive after a cycling accident causes them to reassess their relationship,” adding: “As we meet her family, friends, neighbours and clients, remarkable yet relatable stories of love, lust and forbidden desire emerge.” Pictures from the teaser trailer have been added to the photo gallery.
