The new teaser is now live, see above. “Money + Love” opens in the aftermath of Arcade Fire’s 360-degree deal with global media and e-commerce platform Everything Now, and features a narrative that unfolds over the course of full performances of “Put Your Money on Me” and “We Don’t Deserve Love” from the Grammy-nominated global #1 album Everything Now (Sonovox/Columbia). Win Butler commented on the ambitious scope of the two-song short film, “The concept of a double video really appealed to us, we’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together. David has been a great collaborator for us since Reflektor and we were finally able to work with Toni whom we’d been wanting to work with for some time”. Toni Collette said of her role, “Arcade Fire is on of my all time favorite bands. I was blown away when they asked me to be part of their video. It was a total pleasure acting with them and an even greater pleasure getting to know them. They continue to inspire and I continue to admire. I mean, who gets to do that? I am so lucky!” For further information, go to

In case you’re wondering whatever has happened to “The Yellow Birds” – the highly anticipated Iraq war drama, destined by the online community to become a frontrunner at the Oscars until its Sundance world-premiere to disastrous reviews – well, here’s your news: DirecTV is partnering with Saban Films to release Alexandre Moors’ “The Yellow Birds” in North America. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017 and will be released in spring 2018. It will debut day-and-date in theaters and on demand. The film received mixed reviews when it screened at Sundance, but did draw interest from buyers due a cast of rising stars that includes Tye Sheridan, Alden Ehrenreich, and Jack Husto. Jennifer Aniston and Toni Collette co-star in the film. “The Yellow Birds” follows two young soldiers, Bartle (Ehrenreich) and Murph (Sheridan), as they navigate the frontlines of the Iraq War. As the story progresses, Bartle becomes haunted by a promise he made to Murph’s mother before their deployment. The war drama is written by David Lowery and R.F.I. Porto, and based on the best-selling novel by Kevin Powers. It was produced by Courtney Solomon and Mark Canton for Cinelou Films, and Jeff Sharp for Story Mining & Supply Company.

Curtis Hanson, who directed Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz in 2005’s “In her Shows, has died. Hanson was probably best known for 1997’s “L.A. Confidential”, which was nominated for nine Oscars, including for best picture and best director and won for Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay (Mr. Hanson and his co-writer, Brian Helgeland). As Sasha Stone at AwardsDaily wrote earlier today, he was also a director of great women. Hanson had an ability to bring out fierce performances in his actresses – from Kim Basinger, who won an Oscar in LA Confidential, to the absolutely fantastic Rebecca De Mornay in the Hand that Rocks the Cradle. She should have gotten an Oscar nomination for that movie. And what can you say about The River Wild except that it’s a much better movie than it’s been given credit for, thank in large part to Meryl Streep – but also Hanson was a good director of thrillers, usually those that revolved around female characters, but he also directed 8 Mile with Eminem which came close to getting a Best Picture nomination. Edit: Toni Collette released a statement on Mr. Hanson’s passing on her Instagram account:

Oh Curtis, I am so lucky to have worked with you and known your friendship. The greatest director. The most curious and beautiful mind. You were a great liver of life and will always inspire me. I’ll miss you. I hope wherever you are it’s widescreen…

This one has been finished quite fast. Among of Toni’s upcoming films, “Imperium” has been announced last and will be released first – next month already! Here’s some additional tidbits from Vanity Fair: The film follows Daniel Radcliffe as Nate Foster, an idealistic fed who shaves his head and ditches his Harry Potter specs in order to go undercover, by order of an agent played by Toni Collette. (And who can blame him—anyone among us would play neo-Nazi if Toni Collette asked us politely, right?) Once there, he encounters violence, swastikas, and all manner of angry white men; think Death Eaters targeting mudbloods, but, you know, real. The nail-biter of a film—just the latest example of Radcliffe taking on a role that pushes him out of his comfort zone—premieres in theaters and On Demand August 19.

Toni Collette, has joined the international humanitarian organization, Concern Worldwide, as its first official Global Ambassador.

I am deeply honored to join Concern as their first Global Ambassador,” says Ms. Collette. “I know I am becoming part of a global team of men and women committed to transforming care and empathy into real, direct and effective action that creates lasting change in the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.

As a Global Ambassador, Ms. Collette will work to shine a light on the challenges facing those impacted by poverty, war, conflict, and natural disaster. In this role, Ms. Collette will travel to Concern’s program areas, which include 25 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Caribbean, to bring much-needed attention to the conditions of those living in extreme poverty and in emergency and conflict environments. “We’re so grateful that Toni has agreed to make Concern Worldwide her chosen cause because we know that she can have a transformative impact on our work,” says Dr. Joseph Cahalan, CEO of Concern Worldwide U.S., the organization’s affiliate headquartered in New York City. “Toni has a rare ability to translate concern into action, having helped us reach countless new friends and donors as part of our Concern Gifts program in the last two years. Now, as our ambassador, she can help us reach millions more and strengthen our effort to change the lives of the world’s poorest people.” In 2012, Ms. Collette lent her celebrity to Concern’s global campaign to fight malnutrition and hunger and later to a holiday appeal to make a difference to families across the world through gifts such as livestock, clean water, and health care. Together, the campaigns raised money that helped Concern fight poverty, hunger, and disease, and ultimately save lives.
