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.

A fan’s greatest gift is when old and unseen interviews surface, and this has happened with these incredible video clips from the Australian programme “The Movie Show”.

First, there’s a report on the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, where “Muriel’s Wedding” had its world-premiere, featuring interviews with P.J. Hogan and Toni Collette, who was 21 at that time. Then, a 1997 interview with Toni and director David Parker on the release of the ill-fated “Diana and Me”. A 1999 interview with Toni to promote the Australian release of “The Sixth Sense”, as well as a report on the theatrical release of “Japanese Story”. Finally, as a special treat, “The Movie Show” paid a visit to the set of “Muriel’s Wedding” in 1994. This footage was also used for the making of which was later included on the DVD, but this report features an array of additional footage and interviews with the cast and crew, including P.J, Toni, Rachel Griffith and Bill Hunter. Very insightful material and definately a must-see. Enjoy the new clips.

Screencaptures of Toni’s guest appearance as the Premier of New South Wales in ABC’s “Rake” have been added to the gallery. This was a very funny and racy performance, of which I hope we will see more in the coming episodes.

Here’s a quick catch-up with the episode: Cleaver’s (Richard Roxburgh) affair with the Premier (Toni Collette) proves to be costly when her husband, Attorney-General Cal McGregor (Damien Garvey) begins a campaign of harassment against him. And not only is David Potter (Matt Day) suing him for defamation, but, after the clown punch-up at seven-year-old Max’s birthday party, he’s lost Barney (Russell Dykstra) as a friend and colleague as well. Additionally, three video clips from the episode have been added to the video archive.

Toni Collette will be featured in the next instalment of the legal drama series “Rake”, which premieres on September 6, 2012 on ABC. Toni guest stars as the Premier of NSW, a character that has her working opposite Matt Day as the Shadow Attorney General, the first time the pair have shared the screen since “Muriel’s Wedding”. “Rake”, stars Richard Roxburgh, who previously worked with Toni on the 2006 thriller “Like Minds”. Unfortunately there’s no information so far if Toni will appear in only one or more episodes – but I’m sure the following pictures and preview trailer will keep you excited until there’s more information. Also, additional features can be found at the series’ official website.
