This weekend Sunday night has a story on Margot Robbie, Matt Damon’s quest and an update on a much loved story.
It could be the plot of a Hollywood blockbuster. The world’s biggest, most bankable movie star famous for playing a ruthlessly efficient secret agent makes it his mission to stop a belligerent and divisive billionaire from becoming the next President of the United States. Only it’s no big screen fiction, it’s Matt Damon’s current and very real mission. Matt has returned to his most successful role as Jason Bourne and is sure to set the box office ablaze with the latest instalment of the action franchise. But for Matt no scenario, real or imagined, is more terrifying and dangerous than a Trump presidency and he pulls no punches when it comes to The Donald’s political aspirations. If he fails in his efforts to thwart the ambitions of the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, he’s asked Sunday Night’s Rahni Sadler if it might be possible for him and his family to take up residency in Australia. In this revealing exclusive, Matt takes us inside his happy home life, talks emotionally and candidly about his career’s great and defining moments and speaks passionately about his concerns for the political future of his country.
One moment she was a bright young star of Australian television, the next she was arguably the brightest new star in a much bigger firmament. Margot Robbie – from Neighbours to Hollywood’s Next Big Thing. Turns out slapping Leonardo DiCaprio in a screen test for The Wolf of Wall Street was not the disastrous career move Margot feared it might be. She won the part, all but stole the show and strolled into a string of big time roles. The latest is Jane in The Legend of Tarzan. Soon she’s bringing her best baddie to a headline role in Suicide Squad. There’s no stopping her. In this Sunday Night exclusive, Margot sits down with Denham Hitchcock to talk Neighbours, State of Origin, that fateful slap and her newfound passion for backyard tattooing. Seems none of Margot’s co-stars are safe from her dodgy ink work. It’s her birthday so we bought her a prezzie. But what’s in the box and why is Margot so excited about it?
YAHYA GOES HOME
Born dramatically disfigured, Yahya had no chance of a normal life in his home country of Morocco and chances are it would be tragically short, as his birth defects made him vulnerable to debilitating, even deadly disease. Yahya was born without a face. Thankfully his plight was noticed by a determined Melbourne woman named Fatima and his destiny would be changed by a wonderful team of gifted Aussie medicos. Sunday Night has followed Yahya’s journey from the very beginning and now it’s time to say goodbye. Yahya has emerged from his final rounds of surgery a confident and happy kid ready to take on the challenges of life back home. It will be a wrench for Fatima, the surgical staff who’ve given him his new face and Sunday Night viewers who have closely followed his progress over the past couple of years. Dr Andrew Rochford has our emotion-charged finale as Yahya waves farewell and stuns everyone with his very first words.
