Toni’s latest film, “The Way, Way Back”, celebrated its world-premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, yesterday. Toni attended both the film’s premiere and after-party in Park City. Pictures from the event have been added to the image library.
Entertainment Weekly has a very nice review on its premiere: Anyone who thought the Sundance Film Festival would suffer a post-first-weekend malaise did not anticipate The Way, Way Back, a throwback summer comedy from Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, the Oscar-winning screenwriters of The Descendents. There were 1,001 possible versions of Way Back that could’ve been made — 1,000 of them forgettable — but their tale is salvaged by a gonzo mentor (Sam Rockwell) received a standing ovation from the capacity crowd at Park City’s Eccles Theater Monday afternoon. Sources close to The Way, Way Back confirm that Fox Searchlight has settled a deal to distribute the comedy for just under the record $10.5 million the company paid for Little Miss Sunshine in 2006. Terms are settled and negotiations are over, with Searchlight planning an announcement shortly.
|According to Vulture, the coming-of-age-comedy was well-received. “The Way, Way Back” follows a teenager (Liam James) on summer vacation; he can barely put up with the overbearing asshole (Steve Carell) who’s been dating his mom (Toni Collette). A video from the event, featuring first scenes from the film, has been released and can be watched in the video archive.
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.
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.
