Toni Collette has been interviewed for Variety’s podcast “Playback”, which is being broadcast on iHeartRadio: Actress Toni Collette already left jaws agape at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year with her acclaimed performance in Ari Aster’s directorial debut “Hereditary.” With the film set for release on June 8, more audiences will be invited into the penetrating breed of terror she and Aster conjure. Collette goes to some dark places with her work in the film and, unsurprisingly, it was an emotional roller-coaster getting there. “Usually when you start a movie, the first few days, at least, there are lighter scenes with less dialogue, if any dialogue at all,” Collette says. “And I turned up and had to go straight into some of the most intensely emotional stuff I’ve ever had to do with loads of dialogue at crazy hours of the day and night. I think it was just a matter of accepting that this was what it was. I just had to show up and do it. It always helps when the script is brilliant, and it really, really was, but it’s an actor’s job to make something truthful, and as you see it is as I read it. You’re only ever as good as the opportunity you’re given.” The full article that accompanies this great interview can be read over at Variety.

This morning, Toni Collette and the “Hereditary” crew have attended the Sundance Film Festival London’s Filmmaker and Press Breakfast. As far as I’m concerned, there will be a Q&A on the film later today. For now, check out pictures from the event in our photo gallery.

The Los Angeles Times has published a terrific article and interview with Toni Collette today. An excerpt can be read below and the full article is available on their website. Toni Collette wasn’t looking for darkness when “Hereditary” came calling. But when the darkness found her – in the form of the unnerving saga of the Grahams, an American family haunted by tragedy, mental illness, and perhaps something supernatural – the opportunity was too delicious to pass up. “I wasn’t interested in doing anything heavy, but I picked up the script and I couldn’t stop reading it,” the Australian native explained one May morning, slipping into the same busy Westside eatery where, just over a year ago, writer-director Ari Aster convinced her to take the plunge and play a woman who begins to unlock cryptic family secrets after the death of her own estranged mother. The result, a claustrophobic chiller that distributor A24 releases June 8, features one of the most dynamic and memorable performances of Collette’s career, in what critics are calling the scariest film in years. Collette’s Annie Graham is many things. A miniatures artist who fills her home studio with dioramas of her own life, she recreates memories as a means of reclaiming control. A mother of two with a strained relationship with her own mom, she is overprotective of one of her children, and coldly resentful of the other. And when the unthinkable strikes, she struggles to cope with a sense of powerlessness that gives way to relentless dread as Aster spins his crumbling, nightmarish narrative.

A24 has started the promotional tour for “Hereditary”, which will be in full swing by the end of the week. After a press junket in Los Angeles last week, from which video interviews are now being released here and there as we speak, Toni will be in London to attend the British Sundance Film Festival to talk about the film and will also be a guest on Friday’s “The Graham Norton Show”. Quite a few reviews are being released already for the film’s June 15 release, but this time I’ve decided to not read anything and see the film without any spoilers. The first batch of press junket interviews have been added to the video archive, pictures from the event can be found in the photo gallery and below is IMDb’s chat with Toni and co-star Alex Wolff. Enjoy and check back for more updates this week.
