Margot has come back to her homeland, this time for the Premiere of her other movie released this year, “Peter Rabbit”.

This report from Dailymail.uk:
Margot Robbie has revealed she signed up for Peter Rabbit in the hopes that she would get a ‘free ticket home’.
But despite several live-action scenes being filmed in Sydney, the Oscar-nominated actress was told she’d be doing her parts in Los Angeles.
She told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday: ‘I’ve wanted to shoot something in Australia for so long, so I’m like, sign me up!’
‘Free ticket home, time with my family and then they were like, “Um, you’re actually going to do your parts in LA!” And I was like, No!’
Despite filming her scenes in the US, Margot was still pleased with how Peter Rabbit – which is based on the Beatrix Potter books – had a very Australian feel.
‘There is a lot of Australian pride connected with this film. Parts of it were shot in Australia (and) there are a lot of Australian cast members,’ she explained.
Deadline broke last July 11 that Quentin Tarantino had met with Margot Robbie and asked her to play Sharon Tate in his next film. She now has the offer and negotiations are underway to make it a reality. Robbie, who’s coming off her Oscar-nominated turn in the title role of I, Tonya, will join Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
As Tarantino continues to set a killer ensemble, Sony Pictures has dated the film for an August 9, 2019 release worldwide. The film is a Pulp Fiction-esque tapestry set in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood, around the time of the murder of Tate and several others in a killing spree ordered by Charles Manson.
The two other lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a Western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. In the film Tate is Rick’s very famous next door neighbor.
Robbie is repped by CAA, Management 360, Aran Michael Management and Jackoway Tyerman.
Warner Bros. has been mum about the development of “Suicide Squad 2” in recent months. If a recent report is anything to go by, however, it looks like the studio is already starting to shoot the much-awaited sequel this fall in the U.K.
While the first “Suicide Squad” movie was a critical failure, it was one of Warner Bros.’ most successful films in 2016. The film finished its run with more than $750 million international revenue, so it wasn’t surprising when the studio announced that it was going to give it a sequel. Since the announcement, however, fans have barely heard anything about the project.
Previous reports claimed that Warner Bros. was having a hard time moving forward with the sequel due to Will Smith and Margot Robbie’s challenging schedules. Apparently, filming for the sequel could not begin without the two, who played Deadshot and Harley Quinn, respectively, in the original film.
Now, a new report reveals that the “Suicide Squad” production is finally moving forward as Warner Bros. plans to start shooting the film in the U.K. this fall. The U.K. filming location makes sense since Warner Bros. has a major studio there that has already been home to previous major DC productions. Since “Wonder Woman 2” is also reportedly shooting in the same studio, it’s possible that “Suicide Squad 2” will start shooting after the production of the “Wonder Woman” sequel wraps.
Warner’s decision to move “Suicide Squad 2’s” shooting location to the U.K. is reportedly part of its plan to ramp up DC productions. The first “Suicide Squad” was filmed in Toronto, Canada, so moving its location to the U.K. must be a major switch.
Meanwhile, details about “Suicide Squad 2” are still kept under wraps, but it is expected to see the return of the main cast. There have also been rumors that Dwayne Johnson might make his debut in the film as Black Adam, but Warner Bros. has yet to confirm that.
“Suicide Squad 2” is expected for release next year.
Australian actress Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad, I, Tonya) is set to return to Sydney to attend the Australian premiere of the upcoming film Peter Rabbit. She’ll be joined by director, producer and writer Will Gluck (Easy A, Annie) and Elizabeth Debicki (The Night Manager) who voices Mopsy in the film.
The screening will take place on 17th March 2018 at Hoyts EQ in Moore Park, Sydney.
Joining Margot, Debicki and Will include stars from both the big and small screens, who will walk the grass green carpet, transformed to take attendees in Mr. McGregor’s forbidden vegetable garden, and the world of Peter Rabbit.
Stars planning to attend include producer and CEO of Animal Logic Zareh Nalbandian, Executive Producer Jodi Hildebrand and actors Rachel Ward (The Thorn Birds), Sacha Horler (Offspring), Felix Williamson (The Great Gatsby), Jodi Anasta (Home and Away), Tasma Walton (Mystery Road), and TV presenters and personalities Ita Buttrose, Deborah Knight, Sarah Harris, Tanya Hennessy, Roxy Jacenko and David Koch.
Peter Rabbit will then hop over from the beloved series of story books to the big screen in Australian theatres on 22nd March 2018.

Bold Films has partnered with Entertainment 360, the production arm of Management 360, and LuckyChap Entertainment to finance and produce Dangerous Odds starring Margot Robbie.
Independent production and finance company Bold acquired the project in turnaround from Warner Bros, where LuckyChap has its first look deal.
The project is written by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton) and sees Robbie play a cleaning lady who rises to the top of an illegal sport betting company in the 80s, helping transform it into a billion dollar a year off-shore gambling criminal empire.
Previous Bold Films projects include Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal; Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash, starring Miles Teller; and Nicholas Winding Refn’s Drive with Ryan Gosling.
Bold Films Chairman Michel Litvak said: “We are incredibly excited to work with Oscar-nominated actress Margot Robbie at this momentous time in her career. She will do an amazing job bring this thrilling true story and fascinating character to life.”
LuckyChap Entertainment adds: “We are building LuckyChap off of a passion to tell female driven stories that feel original, unique and rebellious in nature – we found all of this in Marisa’s story and couldn’t be more excited to partner with Bold Films and 360 to bring Dangerous Odds to the screen.”
Margot Robbie has had a lot of memorable moments in the past twelve months, due in large part to her involvement in I, Tonya, the dark comedy she produced and starred in about disgraced former figure skating champ, Tonya Harding.
Through her work on the film, for which she received her first-ever Oscar nomination, Robbie has become friendly with Harding and throughout the film’s run has shared in several very happy moments with the former figure skater. According to Robbie, the most memorable of them all was a chance meeting she saw between Harding and cult movie icon Tommy Wiseau.
“The craziest thing I’ve witnessed was watching Tonya Harding meeting Tommy Wiseau from The Room,” Robbie tells PEOPLE. “Seeing that collision of worlds was like mind boggling, I was like ‘Oh wow, only in Hollywood.’”
Although the actress has now attended multiple awards shows, the one thing she is still trying to master is having the perfect expression ready for when TV cameras pan to her during live broadcasts.
“It’s so awkward when the camera pans to you during an awards show,” she says. “You’re trying to have the appropriate level of excitement on your face without looking manic on screen. What’s going through my head at the time? I’m probably just wondering when the next meal is going to be served, if they’re going to serve food, most of the time they don’t.”

The 2018 Oscars ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4 and will be televised live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
