Today marks Toni Collette’s 40th birthday. It feels a bit unreal to write that, because wasn’t it just a couple of years ago that Toni came to our attention in “Muriel’s Wedding”? Unbelievable but true, this has been 18 years ago. Since then, Toni has managed to become one of the most versatile actresses of her generation with an international career on screen, stage and television. And 22 years after her start, she is in demand as always. Her birthday coincides with today’s world-premiere of “Hitchcock” at the AFI Film Festival. So what better day to give the site a brand new look. All content is still up with most pages being updated, especially the film pages. The image library will be updated next with many new additions. I hope you enjoy the new look, have fun browsing around.
|Two new production stills from the upcoming “A Long Way Down” have been released. Both stills feature the film’s key players – Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots. The film, based on Nick Hornby’s best-selling novel about four strangers who meet on New Year’s eve on a building roof from which they have planned to jump, will be released in 2013.|
|The Hollywood Reporter has exlusively posted a new poster for the upcoming “Hitchcock”. This one features master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) holding a knife with one hand and his wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren), with the other, under the tagline, “Behind Every Psycho Is a Great Woman.” Lower down is a series of headshots of other cast members in character, arranged like a film strip, including Scarlett Johansson, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Jessica Biel, James D’Arcy and Michael Wincott.|
“A Long Way Down” is currently filming on the Spanish island Mallorca and the principal cast – Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots – were spotted shooting scenes at the beach. It seems that Toni has taken a long way down – into the water. Over 50 pictures from the filming have been added to the gallery.
Fox Searchlight Pictures has unleashed, via iTunes Movie Trailers, this first trailer for Sacha Gervasi’s upcoming biopic ‘Hitchcock.’ ‘Hitchcock’ chronicles the making of the seminal 1960 Alfred Hitchcock suspense horror ‘Psycho,’ with Anthony Hopkins portraying the legendary director. Don’t except too much of Toni though, there a couple of short bits of her at Hitchcock’s tea party scene, standing behind him during the “shower scene” filming and the premiere. The trailer is otherwise great and makes curious for more.
“Hitchcock” is based on the book ‘Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho’ by Stephen Rebello. Alongside Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, the film also stars Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, Michael Stuhlbarg as Lew Wasserman, Toni Collette as Hitchcock’s secretary Peggy, Michael Wincott as Ed Gein, Kurtwood Smith as Geoffrey Shurlock, Richard Portnow as Barney Balaban, and Danny Huston as Whitfield Cook. Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced a November 23rd US release date for Sacha Gervasi‘s film.
