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.

“Birthmarked” has been one of Toni’s more recent films that have been quietly released on demand without any big exposure or recognition (see “Please Stand By” and “The Yellow Birds”, and we’re only talking 2018). Its biggest retailer is Netflix, which is not bad at all – and it’s certainly not a bad film. From its outlook, I was expecting something like “Jesus Henry Christ”, a comedy that Toni did some ten years ago, and which wasn’t particularly entertaining, but “Birthmarked” has the heart at its right place. It has some fine performances by Matthew Goode, Michael Smiley and Fionnula Flanagan – it has the right (not very surprising, but fitting) twist. I found it enjoyable. Over 1.000 screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery. Make sure to see the film if you can.

Earlier today, Toni Collette has attended a photocall for BBC1’s upcoming miniseries “Wanderlust”. She was accompanied by co-star Stephen Mackintosh, director Luke Snellin and writer Nick Payne. Fingers crossed for a full trailer soon! Wanderlust follows Joy Richards (Toni) 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. As we meet her family, friends, neighbours and clients, remarkable yet relatable stories of love, lust and forbidden desire emerge. “I am honoured and thrilled to work with Nick Payne’s wonderful words on Wanderlust,” Toni said in a statement. “It is an authentic and revolutionary story about relationships, sex, love and all the things we really care about. I could not be more excited.”The series is set to premiere in the UK on BBC One and globally outside of the UK on Netflix!

On June 22, the National Board of Review hosted a screening of “Hereditary” with a Q&A afterwards. Unfortunately there’s no video available, but a picture has been posted along with some quotes by Ari Aster and Toni Collette. Below is a great quote by Toni about the working experience with Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Gabriel Byrne and Ann Dowd. See the full article here:

How was it like working with such a great supporting cast? TC: In terms of Ari’s specificity, he really did hand pick every actor as well as key crew member. Ann Dowd is an angel. She’s such a pleasure to work with. She’s so open, so present, and she allows moments to kind of erupt on their own. I hadn’t seen The Handmaid’s Tale before working with her and I’m very glad because it would’ve made me feel slightly different. Gabriel Byrne, total dreamboat. He’s grounded, so funny, so generous. And he was my pal. We would sit on the stage and know exactly what we were thinking and it was really great to share this with him. Millie Shapiro was fourteen. This was her very first film. She’s done a couple of shows on Broadway. We had a shared rehearsal together, and she was just so astute. She loves horror films. She was just very conscious of her options in how to portray certain things. She really, really created something quite amazing. Alex, who plays Peter, just loves turning itself inside out. He’s incredible in the movie and I think when I was that age, I think I liked to kind of go there as well, but I’m too old for that. It was something to behold. I think we all felt really touched that we were chosen to work with this material because it felt original. We all got to really steep ourselves, saturate ourselves in something that deeply special we were making. It was bloody hard. It was exhausting. It was a beautiful challenge and really satisfying.

While all the attention lies on tomorrow’s theatrical release of “Hereditary”, one of Toni’s other films – which will be released on the same day – is quietly flying under the radar. Yesterday, Toni joined co-star Nick Offerman at the New York premiere of “Hearts Beat Loud”. In the hip Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, single dad and record store owner Frank (Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to college, while being forced to close his vintage shop. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into a father-daughter live act. After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery. Toni plays a supporting role as the landlord / love interest to Offerman’s character. Make sure to watch it if “Hereditary” will scare you too much – or watch it right afterwards :-) Pictures from the premiere have been added to the photo gallery.
