While we’re all mighty hyped for Margot Robbie’s upcoming studio releases like The Suicide Squad and her Pirates of the Caribbean movie with Christina Hodson, don’t miss out on her new PVOD release produced under the LuckyChap banner, Dreamland. The movie is a second feature for director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte and stars Finn Cole as Eugene Evans, a young man growing up in Texas during the Dust Bowl. When Eugene happens upon a bank robber (Robbie) on the run with a bounty on her head, Eugene must decide whether to turn her in or believe that there’s more to her story than what the authorities claim.

With Dreamland arriving on premium video-on-demand and digital on November 17th, I got the chance to chat with Robbie, Cole and Joris-Peyrafitte about their experience making this ambitious period movie. While I’m sure there were immense challenges along the way, having a “perfect scene partner” must have made a huge difference. Here’s how Robbie described working with Cole:

I would say Finn is literally the perfect scene partner. It’s a really tall order in this film. He has to kind of guide us through it. He really is the center of the film. His journey is the emotional stakes of the entire film so he has to hold the screen when he’s on screen on his own. He’s got so many different dynamics and relationships that are at play here, and then there’s also this Allison and Eugene dynamic.

Not only does Cole knock his own work out of the park, but he also had a significant positive impact on Robbie’s performance as well. Here’s how she put it:

For me, it’s a dream come true when you work with someone who both pushes you but is always there for you and that’s what I found acting with Finn. I was always challenged, I was always caught of guard in the best way, in the way that was always gonna make me better. I feel like we work really well together. We kind of gelled really well. Maybe it’s because we have similar work methods or styles, or because Miles creates that kind of environment on set, but whatever that combination of things were, to have someone there that has your back but is also gonna push you to be better, that’s the dream.

If you’d like to hear more about what it took to bring Dreamland to screen, including how Joris-Peyrafitte crafted one especially stunning shot in the movie, you can check out the full conversation in the video interview at the top of this article. There might be a little Pirates of the Caribbean tease in there for you, too.

DREAMLAND | Official Trailer

Margot Robbie has teased that The Suicide Squad features “one of the most difficult things” she’s ever filmed.

The actor will reprise her role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming movie, which will be directed by James Gunn.

Appearing during a DC FanDome Q&A, the star was asked what the toughest scene to film in The Suicide Squad was. “I don’t want to give it away,” she replied. “When you watch the movie, it’s probably about halfway through.

There’s an insane sequence that Harley does which was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever shot onscreen. And we shot it in like four days and I remember looking at the schedule and being like ‘Oh my god, we’re not going to be able to do this. This is gonna be impossible.’”

Robbie added that although she was “really beat up” at the end of it, Gunn had later texted her to say it “looks amazing”. “That whole sequence apparently looks really cool, so when you see the movie, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about,” she said.

The Suicide Squad will also star Idris Elba, Viola Davis, Pete Davidson, John Cena, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng and more. It is currently scheduled for release on August 6, 2021.

Meanwhile, Suicide Squad director David Ayer recently acknowledged issues with his portrayal of Harley Quinn in the 2016 movie. The filmmaker had responded after a viewer called out the sexualisation of the character, saying her story arc had been “eviscerated” and that “everything is political”.

Another Twitter user then replied, telling him: “The way your camera looked at her was political. The way you used her was political. You treated her as an object and she still rose above it. That was political too.

Hugh Jackman and Margot Robbie are among several celebrities announced as ambassadors for a new anti-racism campaign, DoMore, launching in Australia today (August 26).

According to a press release, the DoMore campaign is “a call to action for all Australians to be allies”.

The DoMore Australia launch video features personal messages from other ambassadors, including NBA star Ben Simmons, actors Miranda Tapsell and Samara Weaving, tennis icon Nick Kyrgios and more, who address the Australian community at large.

We can all make changes in our everyday lives – it’s about listening, understanding, doing your research and learning about others’ experiences,” Simmons said. “Putting that into action and doing more to stop racism is something all Australians can play a part in.

Watch the DoMore launch video below:

The goal of DoMore is to amplify current discussions around racism and the impact it can have, and encourage positive change from those conversations. In engaging with more BIPOC and listening to other people’s stories, DoMore hopes to “create tangible change and shape a better future for all”.

New videos will be uploaded weekly to the DoMore website, featuring interviews that document real-life experiences from Australians from different backgrounds. These stories are made to “encourage active participation in the name of anti-racism”.
