If it's Tuesday, this must be Moscow

After a week or so in London, it looks like the time-traveling Prince of Persia crew has gone to Moscow. Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, et al., are in town for the Russian premiere of PoP and some promotion, of course. Looks like they are still having fun!

A video selection from Jake's PoP weekend promotion. Extra has tea with Jake and gets the all-important confirmation that he's single:

A very funny E! segment. The interviewer described Jake as "hands down one of the nicest and most entertaining people I've ever met. Fucking AWESOME guy" and "30 minutes of awesome:"

"What happens in London stays in London!"

A wrap-up of the PoP premiere:

A few more London premiere pics I couldn't resist posting:

I guess the Moscow premiere is tonight - I think the Premiere article said Jake posed last night. We need Lemon to translate. Whatever happened to her?

And Agent K - I was hoping to see her pop up in all of the London news.

A wrap-up of the London premiere from GQ UK. Not much about Jake, but a fun read - moreso if you know all the references, I imagine.

More on Jake's shower regimen from People. This was from an ET Canada interview, but the video won't work. Hope they fix that!

thanks UV i dont think jake has ever been to moscow before si im sure hell enjoy himself he likes visiting new places he definitely looks like hes having a good time hopefully well get pictures from the premiere

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for posting the ET clips, etc., UV. I hope JB et al start promoting PoP as much I've seen for Sex and the City. PoP clips and little stories etc. should be featured at least four times a week right up until the opening.

It was frustrating to see Access and E! heavily promoting SATC. Even ET managed to sneak in some anecdotal crap. The SATC stuff is relentless. Just keeps coming at you. Unavoidable. I wish PoP would do likewise. (Was Jake doing a product endorsement with that Snickers mention, or was he spoofing Snickers?)

suvee said...

I think it is so cool that they are in Moscow for the Russian premiere! Cannot wait to see the photos.... anticipating what they will wear. Though it will be hard to beat that fine Ferragamo suit (thanks for the info, bobbyanna!).

I've only watched the Extra interivew so far. I love the little nuggets of insight he throws in these interviews occasionally...... I was impressed by his belief that "regret is a good thing". And not only is he single..... he's single and looking. :)

Sheba, I'm so happy your son is okay..... how scary for you and your son. What a day you had!

UV, thanks for all the new PoP goodies!

Samantha Harris (ET talking head in London) is wearing the exact outfit (red coat, big gold buttons, wide gold wrist cuff) that I used to dress my Barbie doll in.

Bobbyanna, I've only see the SATC commercials a few times on television (but then I don't really watch a lot of network television). Is there some more media blitzing I'm unaware of?

I've seen PoP commercials several times over the weekend during sports games on network television.

mary said...

i think these entertainment shows must have deals with certain movie studios Et remember did the first behind the scenes look at pop so i think their going to promote pop more and access hollywood will focus on SATC IMO, anyway i have seen a few ada on tv for pop 2 just yesterday

FluorescentLamp said...

Did anyone notice what a lovely room Jake and Terry Seymour were in during their Extra interview? Wonder if that was Dorchester Hotel or Claridge's.

I'm so overwhelmed with all the interviews at this point I think I'll just comment on other things I notice.

Does anyone know what building in Moscow that is over Jake's shoulder?

UltraViolet said...

I haven't seen any SatC ads - I guess the NBA playoffs aren't the prime spot for them! I had seen a few for PoP but none in the last week.

However, i did see an ad for a PoP preview before Survivor on Sunday on CBS. I guess Bruckheimer gets that for all of the CSI money he's made for them.

Updated the post with new pics from here. You can actually Babelfish Russian. I wish it were better, though because:

Of [dzhillenkhol] it answered, that greatly much worked at itself to, however, demonstrate the press to journalists it refused. “You understand, I, when without the clothing, I become absolutely wild! Here therefore in the life I prefer to be dressed, to leave clothing on itself. What form is not, nothing it remained, all- all lost…”

I'd love to know what he's actually saying! I guess that he can't take his shirt off or he'll become a wild man :)

UltraViolet said...

FL, I did notice the room Jake and Terri were in and wondered which hotel it was.

I am trying to figure out what the buildings are. I was hoping for a Jake shot with those iconic domes. You can sort of get that from one of the new pics but not quite.

bobbyanna said...

It's not the commercials, FL, it's the "behind the scenes" B.S. that's running ad nauseam on E! and Access for SATC.

They open the show with a teaser and show some footage. They go to commercial with teasers and footage,then they do an actual SATC segment,then they sign off with MORE teasers about what they'll have tomorrow, etc.

Mary, you're right. ABC is owned by Disney, so they'll promote PoP. Which is why I was surprised they'd use a segment of SATC! Argh!
It's paid advertising, but at a different level.

I'm sure Access Hollywood and E! have "deals" with the movie.
After all, SATC commercial tie-ins include Hilton hotels, fashion houses, cosmetics, etc. Bleh. Those overdressed *&!#*! looked ridiculous. I hope it tanks!

Chica said...

He's in Russia!!! He looks great and he and Gemma look like they are having a blast. Would love to see a pic of Jake at the Kremlin.

I liked the Extra interview too, I was wondering if it was doen at Claridges myself.

There does seem to be more SATC2 promo going on than Pop, including more billboards and posters on bus stops, etc. Especially here in NY, where the characters from SATC2 are from so of course we are getting more SATC2 here.

FluorescentLamp said...

Ahhh now I see. I never ever watch those shows so luckily I've been spared.

suvee said...

I have seen PoP ads during Lost last week, as well as on the Disney Channel. And one aired last night during Big Bang Theory. Lost and Big Bang are highly rated network shows..... seems like Disney is pretty smart about placement.

I think I've only seen one SATC ad so far. But I watch a lot of Food Network and HGTV, and it's rare to see any movie ads on those 2 channels. Not sure why.....

FluorescentLamp said...

Right. From this pic I can see the spire that's closest to Jake and the pastel yellow colored building next to it.

So yes, looks Kremlinly.

FluorescentLamp said...

This pic even. o_O

UltraViolet said...

Hee. Yeah, I'd love a classic Kremlin or those crazy colorful spires in the background. But this is close.

The things you learn from following Jake! Apparently, Moscow has its first Dunkin Donuts.

Is that progress or what?

Yeah, I don't know either.

Also, this woman met Jake at the premiere. Good to know his charm traveled with him to Russia:

he is so sweet and sincere, I was even surprised))

@JoiningTheWar Yes, baby))) he is beautiful)) received an autograph and a little touched him))

I saw Jake Gyllenhaal today!)) Very happy!

FluorescentLamp said...

So wait, really?

DD in Moscow with more opening around the country

And they haven't been able to reopen any in the UK since they closed them all years ago? Really? Pffft.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

How exciting!I didn't expect Jake and Co. to got to Russia!

I always wanted to visit Russia, some day I hope.

I was thinking about AK too UV with Jake in the UK all week and of course the politcal news as well.Gordon Brown resigned today leaving a coalition of Cameron/Clegg. I don't know how that is all going to work out.

I really liked that interview Jake did for Extra, I don't watch shows like that so I'm glad you posted it!

I have seen a lot of Pop commercials on the Disney channel (of course) and I have to say that I have yet to see one ad on T.V. for SATC2 thank God!

hasan.gary said...

I've seen the POP ads while I was watching Everybody Hates Chris last night. I have seen some commercials of SITC2, but I think that was a long time ago.

Prince of Persia got a really strong review from Pete Hammond.

bobbyanna said...

I honestly do not watch those entertainment/gossip shows regularly, except when I know something Jake-related is on.

I can't stand ET in particular. (They bought the video tape and tried to create a mess about Heath, so they suck big time, IMO.) I've also been trying to keep track of the marketing campaign for PoP.

Great to know there were "crowds screaming too loud" in Moscow!

Get Real said...

Trying to catch up on everything!

Wow, love that Jake is in Moscow! I have never been but my mom's side of the family is all Russian. Would love to take a trip one day. Hope Jake and the PoP folks enjoy.

LOL at some of the adorable videos, tweets, interviews, etc. Jake sure knows when to charm, when to make someone giggle, blush, etc. :D

Don't even get me started about the over-saturation of SATC promotion. I do want to see the movie but that all the entertainment shows over cover the movie and in NYC all you see is SATC commercials, billboards, etc.

Anway, Jake is looking fantastic!

Box Office Magazine gives POP 3.5 out of 5 stars. Pretty good.

mary said...

stephanie has the pictures up from the premiere at ihj jakes wearing a nice gray suit

Tweety said...

I hate all those crappy entertainment shows, I only watch them if Jake is featured.

He looks gorgeous and so happy in these pics, and Gemma is even prettier here w/o that much make-up.

I have to watch all the videos posted, there are so many to catch up on!

Win a trip to L.A. to see a screening with Jake!:


mary said...

i guess the london premiere was a little more formal

Monica said...

He is incredible on the red carpet. How can this man look better every minute?

I can't stand ET in particular. (They bought the video tape and tried to create a mess about Heath, so they suck big time, IMO.)

Me too. But I always put a smile on my face when I see these losers could not demote Heath. It must have been hard to see Heath make a huge success and get all respect he has today and forever.
These people are nothing.

Thanks for the information on Peter Hammond, anon. The review is very good.

suvee said...

Could someone please provide a link to the Pete Hammond PoP review? Thanks!

Monica said...

Here, Suvee:
Something the legends of Hollywood would have loved

suvee said...

Thanks, Monica!

UltraViolet said...

It's nice to see the Rotten Tomato score at at least 50%, but I'm Peter Hammond gives everything good reviews, doesn't he?

Monica - Jake does look better and better. Pics in the new post to prove it :)

(Though I think I liked the London premiere suit more.)
