Article and pictures courtesy the Manchester Evening News: Toni Collette was pictured with blood streaming down her face after a bike crash in Macclesfield – but she was thankfully unhurt as the dramatic scenes were being filmed for a new BBC drama. And at the weekend she was involved in dramatic scenes as she took a tumble while cycling through Tytherington, near Macclesfield. But it was all part of the storyline – and The Sixth Sense and Muriel’s Wedding star Toni was soon seen laughing and joking with the production team, while fake blood poured down her face. The new drama is described as “a searingly insightful and funny exploration of the relationships of a multi-generational family” and also stars Steve Mackintosh, Zawe Ashton and Royce Pierreson in the six-part sereis. Toni plays Joy Richards in the drama, 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. Toni said on the news being released abut the drama: “I am honoured and thrilled to work with Nick Payne’s wonderful words on Wanderlust. 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 film crew have already been spotted filming several scenes of the new show in Chorlton last month. Commissioned by BBC One and a co-production with Netflix, the series will premiere in the UK on BBC One and globally outside of the UK on Netflix.

It’s very quiet right now in Collette-land, which is more than fine after all the film we’ve seen released this year – and some upcoming buzz once “Please Stand By” premieres at the festival circuit later this month. In the meantime, here are scans from the October issue of the Australian Muse Magazine. Enjoy.

“Unlocked” has been released on Blu-Ray in the United Kingdom on Monday and I was thrilled to finally watch it. I was expecting something bad after the film has been in the shelf for over 3 years (as you can clearly see on Toni’s hair, growing back after shooting “Miss You Already” in 2015). Luckily, the film’s quality was not the reason for its delay – at least not in my book. It’s a good entertaining thriller, nothing new to say the least, but still very well done and a good ride. I was looking forward to an ensemble piece, given the talents of John Malkovich, Toni Collette, Michael Douglas and Orlando Bloom involved, but it really is a one-woman show with Noomi Rapace commanding the screen – and every single scene. It’s another powerful leading role. The only real disappointment about the British Blu-Ray is that it includes absolutely no special features, zero. It would have been nice to go behind the scenes and learn more about the making of the film. Make sure to grab your copy or catch it in an American theater for its US release starting tomorrow. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery – be advised that they contain spoilers.

Screencaptures from both parts of “Blue Murder: Killer Cop” have been added to the photo gallery. Richard Roxburgh has delivered a fantastic follow-up to the performance that made him a household name in the 1990s. And it’s been great to see Toni Collette featured in both a very successful Australian film (“Jasper Jones”) and an Australian series this year – alongside frequent co-star Dan Wyllie, whose performance was exceptional as well.

“Fun Mom Dinner” has been released last Friday on demand. The title doesn’t disappoint – it’s fun, it’s not much more, but a decent watch. I can’t say how it ranks with all the other moms/girls-night-out films of the last months, since I wouldn’t have watched this one if it wasn’t for Toni, but I’m sure its target audience will enjoy it. Screencaptures from the on demand version have been added to the photo gallery.
