UN security council must act to uphold the ceasefire in Syria

Riz Ahmed, Sacha Baron Cohen, Isla Fisher, Sofie Gråbøl, Annie Lennox, Michael Palin, Andy Serkis, Imelda Staunton, Emma Thompson, Joe Wright call on the UN to take action

We, like many people around the world, have been horrified by the tragedy of Ghouta unfolding before our eyes (Report, 1 March): children suffocating from chlorine gas, doctors collapsing in tears on the bloody floor of makeshift hospitals, and dazed civilians emerging from the dust clouds of endless air strikes. We have become all too familiar with such scenes in Syria, but now is the moment we must come together and say, “Enough”.

Last Saturday the security council passed a resolution for a 30-day ceasefire that would stop the bombs and allow humanitarian access. The ceasefire has barely led to a lull in the fighting. Meanwhile, diplomats in faraway capitals quibble over the timing and language of the ceasefire.

So today we say in plain terms for all humanity: the members of the security council can and must uphold the ceasefire. We cannot consign yet another promise to Syrian civilians to the rubbish bin of history nor can we accept any watered-down version of the agreement. We must act now to save lives.

Among the horrors of Ghouta, we are seeing tremendous acts of bravery: rescue workers driving towards bombs, women cooking for their entire community and doctors working around the clock with barely enough supplies. We are asking the leaders of our countries to stand with these brave Syrians and do everything in their power to uphold the ceasefire and stop the killing. When our children ask us what we did for Ghouta, let us be able to say, “Everything”.

Riz Ahmed, Sacha Baron Cohen, Isla Fisher, Sofie Gråbøl, Annie Lennox, Michael Palin, Andy Serkis, Imelda Staunton, Emma Thompson, Joe Wright.

During the recent US sporting event Superbowl, a trailer was shown for a new Crocodile Dundee movie starring a host of Aussie stars, including Isla. It was soon revealed, though, that this was not a movie trailer, but a clever new advertisement for Australia itself! The tourism campaign shows US actor Danny McBride travelling to the country and meeting Chris Hemsworth, and has cameos from Isla, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Margot Robbie, and other Australian stars.

The greatest name in the outback is back in the outback! Only this time, Dundee isn’t a Hollywood movie. It’s a giant tourism ad for Australia.

Thirty years after Crocodile Dundee first introduced the world to the land down under, Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride bring the iconic Aussie franchise back as they embark on the trip of a lifetime. And while the film’s plot may not be real, Danny’s adventure through Australia’s outback, white sand beaches, gorgeous wineries and bustling cities are what truly await every visitor.

Come soon, mates. There’s nothing like Australia!

Find out more at the official campaign website dundeemovie.com; there are more videos there as well as on the Tourism Australian You Tube channel. AdForum.com has some information on the campaign too. Find out about how the project came about in the video interview with Chris Hemsworth further down this post.



Crocodile Dundee inspires new $36m American tourism push.

Today’s Super Bowl (the Big Game), the most watched television broadcast in the United States, kicked off a new A$36 million marketing push by Tourism Australia, aimed at supercharging the value of American tourism Down Under.

Supported by Qantas, American Airlines and Wine Australia and featuring appearances from some of Australia’s biggest celebrities, the campaign is the largest Tourism Australia has run in the United States since Paul Hogan’s famous Come Say G’Day ads more than 30 years ago. Celebrities featured include Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Paul Hogan, Margot Robbie, Ruby Rose and Russell Crowe as well as American actor Danny McBride.

Isla Fisher to Co-Star With Matthew McConaughey in ‘Beach Bum’

Isla Fisher is set to star opposite Matthew McConaughey in Harmony Korine’s next movie, “Beach Bum,” sources tell Variety.

The film will be a co-production between Neon and Vice with Neon, which bought the rights for the film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, handling distribution. CAA will be negotiating the domestic sales while Rocket Science handled international sales.

“Beach Bum” is a comedy that follows the misadventures of Moondog (McConaughey), a rebellious and lovable rogue who lives life large. Fisher will play Moondog’s wife.

The film will be written and directed by Korine, whose unique filmmaking style gained recognition with “Spring Breakers,” which starred James Franco and brought in $31 million at the worldwide box office.

Le Grisbi Productions’ John Lesher, Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Iconoclast’s Charles-Marie Anthonioz, Mourad Belkeddar, and Nicolas Lhermitte will produce. The film is executive produced by Tom Quinn and Tim League for Neon and Shane Smith, Eddy Moretti, and Danny Gabai for Vice.

Fisher had a busy 2016, which included “The Brother Grimsby,” “Keeping up With the Joneses,” and Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals.” Fisher just recently wrapped production on “Tag” opposite Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm.

She is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer Weber & Dern.

Isla announced on her Instagram page a few days ago that she is “back on Arrested Development” – she will re-join the show for their 5th season, after her guest stint on season 4 back in 2013. Season 5 started development last month, and is set to air on Netflix in 2018.

Star Jason Bateman teased the premise of the 5th season to Entertainment Weekly a few months ago, saying:

Season 5 of the quirky comedy will involve a murder mystery, Bateman teased earlier this month on EW Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), picking up with the events of season 4, which debuted on the streaming service in May 2013.

“The central spine of that story of is the death of Liza Minnelli’s character [Lucille], and a bit of whodunit, who may have done it, who had something to do with it,” Bateman explained. “That’s sort of a central thread around which [creator Mitch Hurwitz] is going to braid in all the colorful plot complications that he knows how to do.”

Unlike season 4, when episodes focused on individual characters rather than group scenes — a workaround due to cast scheduling conflicts and commitments — Bateman, who popped up in various scenes to help anchor the show, says the cast will be together for the new 15-episode season, which will debut in 2018.

Yee-haw I'm back on Arrested Development

Marge In Charge will be released in the US at the end of 2017:

Isla Fisher Announces Her New Children’s Book Series: Reading Is an ‘Integral Part of Childhood’

Actress Isla Fisher charmed audiences in Wedding Crashers, and now, she’s channeled her quirky humor into children’s books.

PEOPLE has the exclusive cover reveal for her book Marge In Charge, which is the first of a three-installment series and will be published in the U.S. this fall.

” ‘Don’t worry about being perfect or you’ll miss out on the fun!’ That’s the message in the Marge books,” Fisher tells PEOPLE when describing the middle-school book series, which follows the adventures of two siblings and their unorthodox babysitter Marge.

“Jemima, who is the narrator and the eldest child, feels she has to be a ‘good girl,’ so thanks to Marge she learns to let her ‘freak flag’ fly and enjoy being a kid,” continues Fisher, 41, a mother of three.

In conjunction with the U.S. book deal, Fisher will be the final speaker at the BookExpo’s Children’s Book & Author Breakfast on June 2 (which will also feature authors Jason Reynolds, Marieke Nijkamp and Jennifer Weiner). There, she’ll discuss her upcoming book, as well as personal stories tied to her love for literacy.

“It saddens me when I think about how much vocabularies are shrinking — I know mine is, and there’s only so much I can blame on lactation,” writes Fisher about what inspired her to create the series.

As expected, Isla attended the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTAs) in Sydney earlier today, where she was presented with the Trailblazer Award. She was accompanied on the red carpet by her husband, and her mum Elspeth was inside for the ceremony with them. Isla was presented with her award – which she calls the “pinnacle” of her career – by Aussie actor Geoffrey Rush, and thanked fellow Aussie actresses and fellow orange person Donald Trump in her speech! Isla wore a classy black crystal polka dot dress by Aussie designer, with Bulgari jewellery. Read more from the night in the posts below (many of the links have good red carpet video interviews and ceremony footage in them that can’t be embedded here) and find the first HQ photos in our Gallery. Check back in the coming days for more coverage!

Congratulations to Isla on this fantastic honour – and on her 15th anniversary with Sacha! 🙂
