TIFF

Entertainment One Australia is proud to have three Australian films screening at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Rolf de Heer’s deeply affecting portrait of contemporary Aboriginal Australia CHARLIE’S COUNTRY, Kriv Stender’s darkly comedic thriller KILL ME THREE TIMES – which will also have its World Premiere at the festival – and Tony Ayres’ crime drama CUT SNAKE.

All three films will screen in TIFF’s Contemporary World Cinema section, which showcases films with compelling stories from global perspectives.

An Official Selection and awarded Best Actor in the Un Certain Regard section at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival this year, CHARLIE’S COUNTRY pairs renowned director Rolf de Heer with screen legend David Gulpilil for their third film collaboration following the multi-award winning Ten Canoes and their first feature The Tracker.

CHARLIE’S COUNTRY tells the story of blackfella Charlie (Gulpilil), who is getting older and is out of sorts. Frustrated with the failures of the government intervention and the ‘whitefella’ laws enforced in his remote community, Charlie takes off to live the old way. But in doing so he sets off a chain of events in his life that has him return to his community chastened, and somewhat the wiser.

In KILL ME THREE TIMES, Simon Pegg plays the mercurial assassin, Charlie Wolfe, who discovers he isn’t the only person trying to kill the siren of a sun drenched surfing town. Charlie quickly finds himself at the centre of three tales of murder, mayhem, blackmail and revenge. KILL ME THREE TIMES was produced by Western Australian producer Tania Chambers, Laurence Malkin and Share Stallings (Death at a Funeral, A Few Best Men).

Shot in stunning locations throughout Western Australia, KILL ME THREE TIMES stars Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End), Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire, Animal Kingdom, Strike Back), Alice Braga (I Am Legend, Elysium, City of God), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies, Wish You Were Here), Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Turning, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Luke Hemsworth (The Reckoning) and Bryan Brown (F/X, Cocktail).

CUT SNAKE is a powerful crime drama set in mid-70s suburban Australia from Matchbox Pictures’ Tony Ayres (The Home Song Stories). The story centres around Sparra Farrell (Alex Russell, Carrie), a young man trying to escape his past and make a life for himself in a new city. He finds honest work and becomes engaged to the beautiful Paula (Jessica De Gouw, These Final Hours). But when the charismatic and dangerous Pommie (Sullivan Stapleton) tracks him down, Sparra finds himself drawn back into a world that he had tried to leave behind.

Of CHARLIE’S COUNTRY, KILL ME THREE TIMES and CUT SNAKE screening at TIFF, Troy Lum, Managing Director of Entertainment One Australia, says, “We are very proud to have three incredible Australian films screening at Toronto. It’s a credit to the calibre of filmmaking talent we have in this country, these films come from some of our best. They all deserve to be seen on the world stage and it’s immensely satisfying and exciting for everyone involved”.

In addition to CHARLIE’S COUNTRY, KILL ME THREE TIMES and CUT SNAKE, Entertainment One Australia has a host of international films that will screen at TIFF this year including: MY OLD LADY; THE GOOD LIE; MAPS TO THE STARS; and BLACK AND WHITE. MY OLD LADY, THE GOOD LIE and BLACK AND WHITE will all have their World Premieres at the festival.

The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 4-14, 2014.

CHARLIE’S COUNTRY is currently screening in cinemas across Australia. KILL ME THREE TIMES and CUT SNAKE will be released in early 2015.

Elysium

Summary: In the year 2154 two classes of people exist: the ultra wealthy citizens of Elysium; a pristine man-made space station, and the rest of humanity; relegated to surviving on an overpopulated and polluted Earth. Refugees attempting to reach the elite health care and supreme comfort of Elysium via illegal transports from Earth’s scorched surface rarely complete the journey.

Max (Matt Damon) is an ex-con in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly plans a dangerous heist to win him the perilous journey off-world. However, Elysium’s merciless Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces led by Kruger (Sharlto Copley) know just how much of a threat Max is to their privileged existence.

Elsyium Trailer

Sony Pictures have just released an extended trailer for Elysium. You can check it out below – and here is all you need to know about the film.

ONLY AT THE MOVIES! August 15

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium — but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission — one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces — but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
