Toni Collette and Andy Garcia look to be having the time of their lives while enjoying a sunshine-filled picnic in the first look at Under the Stars, a new romantic comedy from filmmaker Michelle Danner and writer Victoria Vinuesa. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story centers on a struggling romance novelist who is stuck in a passionless relationship. When he goes to Italy looking for inspiration, he unexpectedly finds the girl of his dreams. The pair star opposite Alex Pettyfer, Eva De Dominici, Rob Estes and Jessica Michel Serfaty in the film which is currently in production in Puglia, Italy. After wrapping in Puglia, the team moves on to London. Arclight Films launched international sales during the Cannes Film Festival with domestic sales being handled by Capstone Global.

At long last, I’m very happy to finally provide an in-depth coverage on Toni’s most recent series “The Power”, which aired last March on Prime Video. Adapted by Naomi Alderman’s feminist sci-fi book, Toni joined the series late into the party, as its production was heavily impacted by the pandemic and original star Leslie Mann dropped out. Collete re-shot her scenes over a period of five weeks. “The Power” premiered to positive reviews, although some critics mentioned the difficulty in bringing Alderman’s complex novel to life. Since Prime Video didn’t release rating numbers for their productions, it is unclear how well it was received by audiences, but it’s fair to say it probably flew under the radar. Screencaptures of all seven episodes that Toni appeared in, have been added to the photo gallery. A comprehensive (spoiler-rich) episode guide can be found on the career page. Enjoy.

According to Deadline, Toni Collette, Andy Garcia, Alex Pettyfer and Eva De Dominici are leading cast in rom-com “Under The Stars”, which is now filming in Italy. Rob Estes, Jessica Michel Serfaty and Chiara Iezzi also star in the feature, which Arclight is launching for international sales ahead of the Cannes market. Capstone is handling domestic. Pic follows a struggling romance novelist stuck in a passionless relationship. When he goes to Italy looking for inspiration, he unexpectedly finds the girl of his dreams. Production is currently underway in Puglia, Italy and will continue in London.

“Under the Stars is a fun and heartfelt romantic comedy about love, passion, and beauty with a brilliant ensemble cast featuring Toni Collette, Andy Garcia, Alex Pettyfer and Eva De Dominici. Set against the bustle of London and the serenity of Puglia, Michelle Danner is the ideal director to bring Victoria Vinuesa’s wonderful story to life,” said producer Pia Patatian.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, direcotr Bong Joon Ho made his first trip to CinemaCon to show off a first trailer for “Mickey 17”, with Bong saying it’s the story of “a simple man who ultimately ends up saving the world.” “Mickey 17” is based on the novel Mickey 7 by Edward Ashton and follows Mickey 7, a space colonist known as an expendable — those who do the colony’s most dangerous work and often die in the process, only to be brought back to life through human printing technology. The protagonist in the novel is the seventh version of a man named Mickey Barnes, but in the movie, that’s been upped. “The number is the number of times he dies. I killed him ten times more,” Bong said to laughs from the crowd. “It’s a sci-fi movie, but it’s a human story.” The trailer, which was not released outside the room, was set to Frank Sinatra, which added levity to some rather violent scenes, such as Mickey losing a hand and being dumped alive into liquid metal (with his consent). Mickey 17 has been the subject of much curiosity, given that it is Bong’s followup to the best picture-winning Parasite, yet has taken quite awhile for a first look to emerge. Post-production delays pushed the film off a March 2024 release date to Jan. 31, 2025, a date that turned heads given that this does not position Oscar-winner Bong’s latest as an awards contender. The film also stars Mark Ruffalo, Steven Yeun, Naomie Ackie and Toni Collette. Pattinson essentially plays two characters – Mickey 17 and Mickey 18, and while they are genetically identical, Pattinson gave them different characteristics. Mickey 17, he says, is beaten down by life but is happy to be part of a team, while 18 is more like “playing an evil brother” who is “out of control.”

On Friday, Toni Collette was a special guest in Doha, Quatar, to speak about her career during a masterclass at the Doha Film Institute’s Qumra. She discussed her journey from a working-class neighborhood in northwest Sydney to Hollywood star in a masterclass at the Doha Film Institute’s Qumra talent and project development event on Friday. Collette was among six top cinema professionals attending Qumra, alongside directors Leos Carax, Claire Denis, Atom Egoyan and Jim Sheridan as well as sound editor and designer Martin Hernández. She said she had been drawn to performance from an early age, firstly through musical theatre and tap dance. “My father said I came out of the womb with jazz hands towards the light,” she joked. A lenghty article on her masterclass can be read over at Deadline. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.
