How did you get your start?

I did a global rock eisteddfod in Japan when I was in Year 9. I was an incredibly shy kid. Performance was probably the last thing I wanted to do but I always had a real interest in people and in what made them tick. I loved the empathy side of people and trying to understand what.s behind it all. I wanted to play soccer professionally for a lot of my formative years, and then I chose acting, and I moved from Bendigo to Melbourne and my first audition was a show called Tangle, which I got.

Edwards laments lack of new dramas and talent

  • IF.com.au
John Edwards today likened the state of the Australian TV drama production industry to a .stagnant billabong,. marked by fewer series, the same writers, inflated costs for no apparent quality gain, shrinking audiences and increasingly reliance on subsidy.

.All the openness and excitement and bringing through of new talent, of new work, has certainly dissipated, and the area that has historically been the largest and most productive sector of the broadcast industry has all but disappeared,. the veteran producer said in his Hector Crawford memorial lecture at Screen Forever.

.People keep saying it.s the golden age of television drama. If the emperor doesn.t have no clothes, he certainly seems to be wearing very weird underwear..

Edwards lamented the demise of the 40-part and 22-part series and said 13-parters are almost an anachronism.. He noted 6-8 part dramas typically cost $1 million- $1.2 million per hour and once those production structures

Gurry kicks back at Wachowski critics

Mila Kunis and Kick Gurry in Jupiter Ascending.

.

Since Jupiter Ascending.s world premiere at Sundance the sci-fi action-adventure and writers-directors Andy and Lana Wachowski have been pilloried by most critics and the production is shaping as a costly write-off for Warner Bros and Village Roadshow Pictures.

Much of that criticism is unfair and disrespectful to the filmmakers, according to Kick Gurry, who plays Jupiter.s cousin Vladie in his second collaboration with the Wachowskis.

.The Matrix was the best action film of the last 25 years,. the Los Angeles-based Gurry tells If. .I don.t know why people revel in lampooning Jupiter Ascending so much. The Wachowskis should be held in higher regard than they are by some reviewers.

.I love the movie, its message and what it stands for. It.s great that movies inspire debate and conversation but it upsets me when some of the criticism gets more personal.

Devil's Playground audience swells

  • IF.com.au
Just 48,000 people watched the two-hour premiere of Devil.s Playground on Tuesday September 9 on Foxtel.s showcase, but with repeat screenings over the next six days the audience totaled 150,000.

.We consider that.s a very solid number,. Foxtel director of programming Ross Crowley told If today.

Comparisons with other Australian series and miniseries screened on Foxtel in recent years are difficult because Devil.s Playground airs on the movie tier, which reaches about 56% of the platform.s subscribers. Crowley said the most recent like-for-like comparison is with the drama Tangle, which it has tripled.

A sequel to Fred Schepisi.s seminal 1976 semi-autobiographical movie The Devil.s Playground, the six-hour series stars Simon Burke as a newly-widowed Sydney psychiatrist as he.s hired by the Catholic Church to counsel troubled clergy.

The cast includes Jack Thompson, Don Hany, Toni Collette, Andrew McFarlane, Nida graduate Uli Latukefu, Leon Ford and Max Cullen.

Confusing Edge of Tomorrow Blu-ray box art suggests another name change

If Warner Bros. were looking to make back some of the money lost of the disappointing box office take for Edge of Tomorrow, this released Us box art may not be the best foot forward.

According to the Blu-Ray box art for the movie, they’ve changed the title again to Live. Die. Repeat., with the Edge of Tomorrow title tucked away in the corner. This is either a brave design choice, or Warner Bros. attempting to distance the DVD and Blu-Ray release from the name Edge of Tomorrow which has, unfairly, been branded a failure.

Check out the box art below:

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him.

The Fault in Our Stars beats Edge of Tomorrow in the Us weekend box office

The Tom Cruise sci-fi epic Edge of Tomorrow had a disappointing opening weekend last week in its initial 28 markets against stiff competition like Maleficent and X-Men: Days of Future Past. The school holidays probably didn’t help it much either. As such, Warner Bros. were perhaps hoping for a better go around when it opened in the Us last Friday.

Well, the numbers are in and it came in third place with $29.1 million against Disney’s Maleficent which had a strong second week with $33.5 million and, perhaps the surprise winner, The Fault in Our Stars starring Shailene Woodley, which took an impressive $48.2 million. However, the majority of that box office taking was from the advance screenings on Thursday ($8.2 million) and the Friday release ($26 million). The Saturday numbers did slip, but with the movie only costing $12 million to make, it was considered a success by the end of its second day.

Edge of Tomorrow opens to a disappointing $20 million

It has been praised by the majority of cinema goers and critics, but it looks like the competition was too tough for Edge of Tomorrow to overcome.

The film is yet to open in North America (due to a slow pre-sale), but the overseas takings for Tom Cruise’s latest sci-fi blockbuster has been a very disappointing with just $20 million in 28 markets. The film made its strongest showing in Asia, but is yet to open in China, Japan and South Korea where it is expected to do well.

Released by Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, Edge of Tomorrow cost $178 million.

The film was always going to struggle, and the proof is in the pudding as Disney’s Maleficent took $170.6 million worldwide and 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has just crossed the $500 million mark.

Here in the UK, Edge of Tomorrow opened to $3.1 million, which is vastly
