According to Variety, Lana Condor, Toni Collette and Jane Fonda are playing a family of sea monster queens in DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming film “Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken.” Condor voices Ruby, “a shy teenager who discovers that she’s part of a legendary royal lineage of mythical sea krakens and that her destiny, in the depths of the oceans, is bigger than she ever dreamed.” Collette plays her mother, who forbade Ruby from ever stepping foot in the water, and Fonda is her grandmother, from whom Ruby is destined to inherit the throne of the kraken queens. The cast includes Colman Domingo as Ruby’s dad, Sam Richardson as her uncle and Blue Chapman as her little brother, plus Will Forte, Nicole Byer. Liza Koshy, Ramona Young, Eduardo Franco and Echo Kellum. “Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken” releases in theaters on June 30. It’s directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Kirk DeMicco (“Vivo,” “The Croods”) with Faryn Pearl as co-director. Kelly Cooney Cilella produced, and Stephanie Economou wrote the score.
Sweet, awkward 16-year-old Ruby Gillman is desperate to fit in at Oceanside High, but she mostly just feels invisible. She’s math-tutoring her skater-boy crush (Jaboukie Young-White), who only seems to admire her for her fractals, and she’s prevented from hanging out with the cool kids at the beach because her over-protective supermom has forbade Ruby from ever getting in the water. But when she breaks her mom’s #1 rule, Ruby will discover that she is a direct descendant of the warrior Kraken queens and is destined to inherit the throne from her commanding grandmother, the Warrior Queen of the Seven Seas. The Kraken are sworn to protect the oceans of the world against the vain, power-hungry mermaids who have been battling with the Kraken for eons. There’s one major, and immediate, problem with that: The school’s beautiful, popular new girl, Chelsea (Annie Murphy) just happens to be a mermaid. Ruby will ultimately need to embrace who she is and go big to protect those she loves most.
Paramount’s “Mafia Mamma”, opening April 13 in cinemas, stars Toni Collete as an American woman who inherits her grandfather’s mafia empire in Italy. Guided by the firm’s trusted consigliere (Monica Bellucci), she hilariously defies everyone’s expectations, including her own, as the new head of the family business. Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) directs. Screencaptures from the trailer have been added to the photo gallery.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Toni Collette is set to star alongside Odessa Young in The Prima Donna from writer/director Nathan Silver, a feature that is billed as a “delightfully twisted and darkly funny revenge thriller about dysfunctional family dynamics, the dangers of ambition, and the lengths we will go to make our mark on the world.” The Prima Donna sees Collette playing legendary opera diva Livia Angelli as she prepares to step into the role of a lifetime, just as her estranged daughter Mimi (Young) shows up at her doorstep, right out of rehab. An aspiring opera singer herself, Mimi summons the courage to ask Livia if she can be more than her daughter — she wants to be her understudy. When she’s met by her mother’s derisive laughter and callous dismissal, Mimi snaps, looking to exact the ultimate revenge on the woman who barely raised her. But Livia Angelli doesn’t go down without a fight, igniting a cut-throat battle of wills that sends their lives, relationship, and opera production into a fever pitch. “We’re delighted to be collaborating once again with Toni Collette on this highly entertaining adult thriller,” said Cornerstone’s Alison Thompson and Mark Gooder.
Naomi Alderman’s 2016 dystopian thriller The Power was an instant classic of speculative fiction – the kind of thought experiment that destabilizes our sense of what’s possible. What would happen if teenage girls had the ability to electrocute at their fingertips? What would the world be like if women didn’t fear men anymore? How would women wield their new strength, and how would men push back? The novel imagines a cascade of aftershocks as the balance of gender power shifts. Toni Collette hadn’t read The Power when she agreed to star in the Amazon Prime Video series adaptation, premiering this March, playing fictional Seattle mayor Margot Cleary-Lopez. “I often don’t read the source material – I like to focus on the scripts that I’m given, because that’s what’s chosen to be focused on,” Collette tells Vanity Fair by phone from Sydney. But she also points out that the role came to her very abruptly. The series began shooting in early 2020, with Leslie Mann in the role of Margot, but the pandemic shut down production. Last year, Collette was brought in to replace Mann, and all her previously filmed scenes had to be re-done. Vanity Fair has posted a lenghty accompanying article for the teaser trailer, including an interview with Toni. Screencaptures from the trailer have been added to the photo gallery.
