March 04, 2017 Brenton - News

Great news! It was announced today that Brenton will be receiving the Breakthrough Performer of the Year in this year’s CinemaCon. Congratulations to Brenton, and we are so happy for you!

WASHINGTON D.C. (March 2, 2017) – Brenton Thwaites will receive the “CinemaCon Breakthrough Performer of the Year Award,” it was announced today by Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director of CinemaCon. CinemaCon, the official convention of The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) will be held March 27-30, 2017 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Thwaites will be presented with this special honor at the “CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards” ceremony taking place on the evening of Thursday, March 30, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, hosted by the Coca-Cola Company, the official presenting sponsor of CinemaCon.

“Since making his big screen debut in 2013’s ‘Oculus,’ Brenton Thwaites has entertained audiences with versatile roles in such films as ‘The Giver,’ and ‘Maleficient,’” noted Neuhauser. “With his upcoming role in the sure to be blockbuster ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,’ Thwaites is poised to breakout and become a household name with his starring turn opposite Johnny Depp.”

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” to be released on May 26, 2017 by Walt Disney Pictures. The film finds down-on-his luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea – notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.

A graduate of Queensland University of Technology, Thwaites began his acting career on the Australian television series “SLiDE” and “Home and Away” before his breakout role in the telefilm “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening.” He has appeared in such films as “Son of a Gun,” with Ewan McGregor and Alicia Vikander, “The Giver” opposite Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep, “Maleficent” starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, Mike Flanagan’s “Oculus,” “The Signal” directed by Will Eubanks and “Ride” opposite writer and director Helen Hunt. He has recently wrapped production on “Interview with God,” and shot the genre film “Office Uprising,” which he also executive produced.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is gearing up for a February shoot in Queensland, Australia, which means the official cast is starting to heat up. Disney is reportedly targeting a number of young actors for the role of Henry.
No character details have been revealed in regards to Henry. Being tested for the role are Taron Egerton, who is already receiving advanced praise for his role as a young hit man in the upcoming comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service. George MacKay, a relatively unknown actor last seen in the gay activist drama Pride. Brenton Thwaites, who gained quite a bit of attention for his lead role in this summer’s The Giver and his co-starring role in Disney’s Maleficent. Mitchell Hope, who had a small role in The Descendants. Ansel Elgort, who has garnered a lot of attention and praise for his roles opposite Shailene Woodley in both The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent. And Sam Keeley, who has already earned his sea legs as part of Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea cast.
At this time, there is no odds on favorite mentioned, though Ansel Elgort and Brenton Thwaites are the best known of the bunch. The question is, are either of them right for Henry?
Johnny Depp is set to reprise his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow in this latest franchise adventure. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is being directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, the pair behind the Oscar-winning adventure movie Kon-Tiki. Jerry Bruckheimer will produce.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales comes to theaters July 7th, 2017 and stars Johnny Depp. The film is directed by Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg.

The Australians in Film will honor Margot Robbie, Brenton Thwaites, Anthony LaPaglia and the late Dune Entertainment Chairman Greg Coote at its annual gala in Los Angeles on Oct. 26. recognizing contributions to the Australian screen industry.

The AiF breakthrough awards will be presented to Robbie (“Wolf of Wall Street”) and Thwaites (“The Giver”). Robbie will be seen in the upcoming “Focus,” alongside Will Smith, and in Warner Bros.’ “Tarzan.” Thwaites has been cast in a leading role in “Gods of Egypt,” which also stars Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

“We are eagerly waiting to see what lies ahead for our AiF Breakthrough Award winners Margot Robbie and Brenton Thwaites,” said AiF President Simonne Overend. ”Both these actors embody the very best talent and potential that we see emerging from Australia today. Their international success so early in their career suggests great promise for the years ahead.”

Coote, who died earlier this year, will receive the Australians in Film Virgin Australia Orry-Kelly Award, presented to Australians who have contributed to the success of other Australians in the industry.

“Greg Coote was an important advisor to Australians in Film from the beginning, helping to shape our early strategy, with a particular focus on supporting emerging Australian talent in Hollywood” said  Overend. “He played such a major part in our success and really did so much for Aussies in this industry both at home and overseas.”

As CEO of film financier Dune Entertainment, Coote co-invested with 20th Century Fox in more than 60 major movies including “Avatar” and “Marley & Me.”  Coote started his career in Australia  in the mailroom and and worked his way up to the position of head of Australian distributor Village Roadshow Pictures.

Anthony LaPaglia will also be named as one of two Orry-Kelly International Honorees for his support of Australians working in the film and television industries in Los Angeles.

“Anthony LaPaglia is well known for offering Australians employment opportunities both on his shows and throughout his projects and it is wonderful to see him celebrated for his generous contributions,” said Overend.
