March Madness viewers have been tweeting about Disney's ads for Prince of Persia, but the commercials hadn't shown up online until now. Courtesy of Latino Review, take a look at the two new TV spots for Jake Gyllenhaal's PoP:
You can view the whole Wondercon PoP panel in GF, care of The Netwerk. Here's part One:
All six parts are here.
The folks at Moviefone talked to Jake about his Wondercon experience:
"It's so great to hear everybody cheering after the clips," Gyllenhaal told Moviefone. The 'Persia' star and first-time Con attendee was unintimidated by the raucous crowds. "That's the scary thing, people are seeing a little piece of this movie that's just been our own for so long. Granted, 2,000 people worked on it [laughs]. It's great to hear people get psyched, and see the sea of cameras and people."
I like the light effect on the last one. Those eyes...
Check out Jordan Mechner's blog for a taste of the insider whirl of Wondercon.
I bet we'll be getting more Wondercon coverage today, so be sure to check back. And check out our previous two posts if you missed the Wondercon-Gyllenhaal mania.
A very amusing and informative interview with Jake from UGO. A little taste:
Jordan Hoffman: Before I want to go, I want to ask you –
Jake Gyllenhaal: You know you sound like Jimmy Kimmel?
Jordan Hoffman: What are you trying to say? All New Yorker Jews are the same? [Actually, Kimmel is actually, Italian – ed.]
Jake Gyllenhaal: Oh, are you a New York Jew? [Yelling to his handlers.] Why am I talking to a New York Jew? Who put me on the phone with the New York Jew?
Jordan Hoffman: We have a mutual friend in [redacted] by the way.
Jake Gyllenhaal: Oh, great, another New York Jew. This is making me – I don’t know what to say. Who put me on the phone with this guy? I won’t mention that if you don’t mention me, cuz I’m a New York Jew.
And finally, someone asks Jake about Nailed:
Jordan Hoffman: And what’s the story with David O. Russell and Nailed?
Jake Gyllenhaal: The financing for the movie, uh, we had one last scene to shoot of the movie. We were pretty much, I would say 98% done and uh, the financing fell through. So that movie is yet to be finished.
Jordan Hoffman: So this is something that’s 98% done and we’re waiting for somebody’s uncle to put up some dough to finish this thing? Is that basically the story?
Jake Gyllenhaal: Yeah, talk to the financer.
Jordan Hoffman: Wow. Well, I hope it comes out.
Jake Gyllenhaal: You never know. You never know.
Jordan Hoffman: Would you ever endorse sort of an unfinished version or something? If your schedule and his schedule can’t get back together once the financing does come back through?
Jake Gyllenhaal: Well my role is done. I shot all my roll in the movie but, uhm, yeah I would without a doubt. I think David is like, an extraordinary filmmaker and I always think there’s a way around it. It’s just, you know all those contracts you gotta get through.
Come on, someone - make it happen!
A video interview with Jake in which he describes his Lego figure as "just a buffed-up Indiana Jones lego with a mullet." Hee.
And from MTV, Jake talking about Damn Yankees, which does not sound like a sure thing:
