Yesterday, the Los Angeles premiere for “The Way, Way Back” was held and Toni Collette was in attendance. View over 100 pictures from the premiere in the image library with additional information on the event and quotes below.


The film reunites Carell and Collette, who last worked together on Little Miss Sunshine. Looking stunning in a crisp black J Brand jumpsuit, Collette called The Way, Way Back “the perfect combination of humor and reality,” noting that audiences may be surprised by Carell’s portrayal of Trent. “He’s so wonderful in this. Audiences are used to him doing these really big comedies, and he’s not entirely likable in this. It’s a good surprise.” On the red carpet at Regal Cinemas at LA Live they were joined by co-stars Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb and Liam James. What were their most memorable summer vacations growing up? “My family and I used to take a lot of camping trips,” recalled Carell. “We’d load up a trailer, like a pop-up tent trailer and we’d explore the White Mountains and go down to Cape Cod. And sort of go all over the place on the East Coast.” Collette grinned describing her best summer, when she was 18. “A bunch of girlfriends pulled up outside my house. I grabbed my guitar and a small backpack and jumped in, and I didn’t know where I was going. We drove up the coast of Australia. We slept on beaches. We went to a folk festival. It was freedom I will never forget.”

On June 06, Toni Collette and Steve Carell have attended the Sydney Film Festival’s premiere of “The Way, Way Back”. Carell made an unexpected appearance after a last-minute text message from mate and Little Miss Sunshine co-star. When Carell got Collette’s message, he surprised her on the theatre’s red carpet after a day of interviews at the Park Hyatt Hotel. “We got to know each other even better on this film, because it was shot in (Carell’s) home town in Massachusetts. “Toni had a little beach house in that area and her baby and her husband were there. It was really fun, a really nice family time”. Pictures from the premiere can be found in the gallery.

Toni Collette will be attending the Sydney Film Festival this June to promote “The Way, Way Back”. The comedy will have its festival premiere on June 06. More information, as well as tickets, can be found on the SFF’s official website, a longer synopsis on the film is here: Funny, smart and uplifting, The Way, Way Back is a well-crafted coming-of-age comedy with winning performances by a stellar cast. Fourteen-year-old Duncan (Liam James) is forced to spend the summer vacation with his mother Pam (Toni Collette), her condescending boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell) and his mean-girl daughter. Constantly humiliated, Duncan struggles until he meets Owen (Sam Rockwell, in arguably his best performance), the manager of a somewhat disheveled Water Wizz water park. Rebellious, relaxed, and very funny, Owen pokes fun at Duncan, but at the same time gives him the confidence to stand up for himself and find his place in the world. Directors Jim Rash and Nat Faxon are the Oscar®-winning writers of The Descendents and both accomplished actors themselves – Rash in Community and Faxon in Ben and Kate. Here they have made a heartwarming, inspiring and hilarious film.
