The first official trailer for Samara’s upcoming Hulu mini-series “Nine Perfect Strangers” has been released! Check it out below, and learn more about the project in the article attached at the bottom of the post. The show arrives on Hulu on August 18th, 2021.
Vanity Fair | TV fans who became addicted to the twists and turns of Big Little Lies or The Undoing will be pleased to know there’s a new mystery on the horizon, just waiting to suck them in. Nine Perfect Strangers reunites David E. Kelley, Nicole Kidman, and author Liane Moriarty for an all-new surprising adventure, this time set in Kidman and Moriarty’s home country of Australia. But even if you think you know what to expect from this trio of creators, Kelley cautioned Vanity Fair to think again: “This one’s a bit wild.”
Moriarty’s book Nine Perfect Strangers takes place at a remote, upscale health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation for nine stressed city dwellers. Overseeing their journey is enigmatic and possibly dangerous resort director Masha, played with unsettling serenity by Kidman. The cast is packed with familiar TV and film faces, including Michael Shannon, Luke Evans, Regina Hall, Bobby Cannavale, Samara Weaving, Melvin Gregg, Manny Jacinto, Asher Keddie, Grace Van Patten, and Tiffany Boone. At the center of both the novel and the show is Frances, a successful writer looking for guidance in her personal life, played by Melissa McCarthy.
As Masha and Frances embark on this emotional and chaotic journey, Kidman and McCarthy are given plenty of opportunity to spark off each other. “They are both wildly funny, moving, and unpredictable,” Kelley said. “Characters who surprise, charm, and sometimes shock—played by two incredibly gifted performers.”
Masha, her staff, and these nine “perfect” strangers clash during a retreat filled with experimental therapies that stretch the imagination. “One could be inclined to dismiss the construct as too absurd, but it would be a mistake,” Kelley said. “The series is ultimately rooted in human pathologies, and what leaps out as ridiculous gets very real. The goal was to deliver a fun ride which emotionally resonates. A hoot with a sniffle chaser.”
The premise of Moriarty’s book is not all that dissimilar from that of the series Lost or a variety of shows that have drawn inspiration from it. The various attendees at this retreat come burdened with a wide range of baggage, from personal loss to addiction to crises of self-image. Whatever assumptions audiences make will be challenged over the course of eight episodes as the characters’ backstories unfold. What Nine Perfect Strangers has that those other stories don’t is the wild and wonderful setting of the Tranquillum House spa.
This new teaser is premiering on the eve of Global Wellness Day as a nod to the show’s (occasionally absurd) setting. “The self-improvement thing has become difficult to parody, but I think we manage,” Kelley said. “We do have our share and fun and nonsense. But underlying the craziness, people are broken. They hurt. They want to heal. There’s struggle everywhere. In success, we both laugh and cry with these characters.”
For a better sense of what that tone might look like, it’s helpful to consider that every episode of the series is directed by Jonathan Levine, whose catalog of work includes comedies with plenty of pathos: 50/50, The Wackness, and Long Shot. After quarantining for 14 days per Australian law, Levine and his cast shot on location in Byron Bay, New South Wales, last year during the pandemic. “Extraordinary work by Jonathan Levine and our entire crew,” Kelley said of the pandemic-safe production. “No easy task. Honestly, I still cannot believe they pulled it off.”
The first three episodes of Nine Perfect Strangers will debut on Hulu on August 18.

Hello Samara fans! I came online to some very exciting news today… Samara has been cast in a new project! She is set to start alongside Daniel Radcliffe in the NZ filmmaker Jason Lei Howden‘s film “Guns Akimbo“. As the huge Harry Potter fan she is, I can imagine Samara being extremely excited to star alongside the main actor himself – we definitely can’t wait to see her in this! You can read more about the project below, and we’ll keep you updated on anything new about the film.
Kiwi filmmaker Jason Lei Howden began production on Guns Akimbo in Auckland on Saturday, with Samara Weaving joining Daniel Radcliffe in the cast.
The movie is described as an “adrenaline-fuelled, balls-to-the-wall original action comedy” and is the second feature for the writer/director following his hit 2015 horror comedy Deathgasm.
“I am massively excited to be here in Auckland starting filming on Guns Akimbo,” Radcliffe told Newshub. “Jason Lei Howden has written a brilliant and delightfully insane script, and working with him as director and alongside the fantastic Samara Weaving to bring it to life is going to be a lot of fun. If you see me around Auckland looking very worse for wear and covered in blood and bruises, don’t worry – this is probably for filming.”
Weaving, 26, is a former Home and Away star who was last seen on the big screen in award season darling Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Guns Akimbo will follow an ordinary man whose mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled in a dark social media movement that forces strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience. Howden told Flicks.co.nz he hopes Guns Akimbo beats the ‘high watermark’ set by acclaimed modern action movie John Wick. On social media, the filmmaker has teased fans with glimpses of a rocket launcher and an American muscle car in tweets about the movie. (Source)
As written in our previous post, Samara is the covergirl of Qantas Magazine‘s QStyle issue this month. Following the beautiful photoshoot outtakes added yesterday, I have now added high quality digital scans of the spread to our gallery! I have also typed up the article, which you can read below. Samara discusses rising to fame, the hardest parts of being an actress, her hometown Sydney and her current hometown Los Angeles.
Samara Weaving is the type of person who’d bristle at the word “journey”. But if anyone’s been on one, it’s her. The 26-year-old niece of acclaimed Australian actor Hugo Weaving was born in Adelaide and raised all over Asia and Europe by her academic parents before spending four years on the fictional streets of Home and Away’s Summer Bay (like Isla Fisher and Chris Hemsworth before her). Since then she’s ping-ponged between Australia and the United States, officially relocating to Los Angeles after landing the lead role (of a murderous babysitter) in Netflix’s 2017 horror-comedy smash The Babysitter.A buzz has trailed Weaving ever since,growing louder after her small but memorable part in the awards-season steamroller Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,Missouri opposite Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell. Then there was her on-point portrayal of an irritatingly perfect girlfriend in the breakout hit SMILF (the second season is currently in production), a raw and honest dramedy about a twenty something single mum. Later this year, Weaving will star as ill-fated schoolgirl Irma Leopold in the television adaptation of Australian classic Picnic at Hanging Rock alongside Game of Thrones alum Natalie Dormer – a series so hotly anticipated that it sparked a network bidding war in the US. On an increasingly rare visit home, Weaving took time out to dress up and talk shop.
You’ve become very visible very quickly…
Once I’d booked The Babysitter– which was on The Black List [a list of the most hyped but as-yet-unproduced scripts in Hollywood] for years – it felt like I finally had my foot in the door. I’ve been in the industry for 10 years and not having to jump through as many hoops when it comes to auditions is really refreshing. Read More
