Yesterday, Toni was among the many Australian guests at the 2013 G’Day USA Black Tie Gala in Los Angeles. Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban and Naomi Watts also came together to celebrate 10 years of G’Day USA. Jackman presented an award to Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan for introducing Australia to a generation of Americans, while actress Rose Byrne received an award for Excellence in Film & TV. Pictures from the gala have been added to the gallery.
|With “Hitchcock” being released in various European cities these days, a couple of new production stills and posters have been released. And with the awards season taking place right now, the film was able to score nominations for Helen Mirren at the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA Awards. Fingers crossed she makes the cut as well at tomorrow’s Oscar nominations.|
According to the HD Room, The Fox Searchlight film Hitchcock starring Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock, Helen Mirren as his wife Alma Reville, and Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh will make its Blu-ray and DVD debut on March 12. Hitchcock has earned just over $3.6 million in limited released following its theatrical debut on November 23, 2012. The story about the legendary filmmaker’s relationship with his wife during the filming of Psycho should prove a big draw on home video where many interested viewers will finally have access to the film. Fox has yet to formally announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Hitchcock so no disc details are available at this time. The official announcement is expected to be made in early 2013.
DVD screencaptures and video clips from “Foster” have been added to the site. Before you start scratching your head because you’ve never heard of this film – don’t worry. “Foster”, which is based on a short film by director Jonathan Newman (who has also helmed this feature version), has been made over two years ago in London, but never found its way into theaters. In early 2012, it received a limited release in Australia and the United Kingdom and has been released on DVD in both countries since then. Apart from captures of the film, there are also pictures from the making of, stills and an interview with Toni Collette.
As for the clips, you can watch the trailer, a featurette, an interview with Toni as well as three excerpts from the film in the video archive. Enjoy the new additions. More information, production notes and a review will follow in time.
The Sundance Film Festival, which kicks off on January 17th, has announced its 2013 line-up. Among them is Toni’s most recent film, “The Way, Way Back”, directed and written by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash.

Cast: Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolph, Liam James.
|Alfred Hitchcock’s carefully honed persona was as distinctive as his silhouette, and yet just as unrevealing. In the new drama Hitchcock, which plumbs the personal and professional machinations behind the scenes of Psycho, director Sacha Gervasi illuminates the man in the shadows by focusing on Hitchcock’s close relationship with his wife. “What drew me to the project was the notion of telling an emotional story about a man we know nothing about on an emotional level.” The complete article can be read at W Magazine.|
