Time To GIF



Thanks to the tumblr geniuses who seemed to have gifs made before I had even watched the video twice. I liked this description, also found on tumblr: "It’s like Drive and Shame had a baby, and The Shoes provided the fucking awesome music."











Spinner spoke with video director Danel Wolfe about the making of the video:

"Jake Gyllenhaal and I had been talking about working together on something, and I got sent 'Time To Dance' by The Shoes, who are my favorite band, so I wanted to bring Jake in on that," explained 'Time to Dance' director Daniel Wolfe, in an interview with Spinner/RPM. "I pitched the idea to him, and he liked it, which was great."

"My brother and I had been chatting about doing a British take on the slasher genre for a while, but as a music video, and instead of seeing it from the victim's perspectives, we wanted to be with the killer, spend some downtime with him," the director continued. "To then be able to work with Jake Gyllenhaal on it was great. The Shoes' music is very cinematic, I had the privilege of working with them before, they're open to ideas, and they gave us the freedom to make 'Time to Dance.'"


The story mentions something that The Shoes and the video producer also retweeted: American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis gave the video his seal of approval on twitter. Twice.

Funny blog post from someone who met Jake on the SC set.

Also, Stephanie added a few more photos of Jake and Lea to that set on IHJ.

Thanks for the gif(t)s, UV!

And Lenor,too. That's a lovely photo. he was wearing Burberry. I love that set.


Wow the video has literally exploded all over the place. It's everywhere. Lots of American Psycho references along with Donnie Darko.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the gifs. I got plenty of links on google alert about the video. He went into that DARK place I think a lot of us have but can never show. I have to wonder, when he got into character, if he was using his 'love' for the paps as motivation for that scene where he's really pummeling someone. :D

I remember when I was bowling one time I envisioned the pins were some co workers I couldn't stand. It's amazing how well I did that day

Lily

UltraViolet said...

Even Movieline, which is usually very dismissive of Jake, is enjoying this incarnation.

I don't think Jake hates the paps as much as people think he does, Lily. He gets annoyed with them and probably does sometimes want to kill them. But I don't think it rules his life.

Bret Easton Ellis really likes the video. I'm not sure I'd be proud of that, but he is certainly an authority on this kind of thing.

gr said...

Jake Gyllenhaal has played along the edge of creepy (Donnie Darko) before, but he hasn't gone full psycho -- until now. After the jump, watch Jakey-poo put that dead-eyed visage to great use as a troubled, tightly coiled young man who kills his hipster pals and strangers alike until he finds just the right... dance club. Eh, it's a music video for a band called The Shoes. I'll allow it.

The video, directed by Daniel Wolfe for the Shoes single "Time to Dance," reminds me a lot of this year's Sundance thriller Simon Killer; both follow charismatic sociopaths as they stalk their prey, using stylistic flashes and tricks to evoke their character's mental state.

Warning: Some startling violence within.

Soul Cycle said...

Seeing Jake Gyllenhaal in spin made up for being verbally assaulted by Ben's hair the past few months. #bachelor #allisforgiven

gr said...

Oh God, people are completely gone crazy for this video, yesterday I didn't succeed in holding the footstep with the tide of Tweets, I didn't expect this whole success! All of this is absolutely magnificent!
Hey Ulta Violet, Jake has become

Is it wrong for me to think that Jake looks sexy smoking:):)

I can't believe the response this video is getting!

Anonymous said...

I wonder what this all means for his career. It is important to keep your name front and center from time to time. He doesn't have a new project to promote until Sept, and generating this kind of excitement on the web certainly helps him promote himself.

I just wonder if, after doing this dark genre, if that is what he's looking for in his next project

Lily

UltraViolet said...

Liked this description of the video, from a comment on a story about it:

It’s like “the best video ever” but only better than that.

From one of the producers of the video:

Can you share a bit how it was to work with my favourite actor ever Jake G. on TimetoDance video?

super cool : )


And this cracked me up. The Shoes tweeted this:

Best comment ever! LOVE!

Apparently Bear Grylls has been let go by the Discovery Channel. Glad he got Jake on there before being fired!

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I love these gifs UV, this has really gone viral!

I don't know what this means for his career Lily, but this is the best thing he has done in awhile (not counting SC).

The violence in the video is disturbing but in a stylized way.

Ellis is giving it his props, not a fan of his but his approval sure gived it more cred.

"Ellis is giving it his props, not a fan of his but his approval sure gived it more cred"

I agree, OONP. And you're right. It's gone viral!It's hard to find any Jake news with all the video chatter. : )

That's too bad about Bear, UV. I'm glad he and Jake did their episode too. I wonder if Bear has syndication rights. Back episodes could air on another channel. Or Discovery might repeat them. They are popular.

Chica, I felt the same way. Hate to admit it, but Jake looked Damned sexy with the cigarette.In all honesty, he looked damned sexy in the entire video. I mean there he is being a psycho killer and I'm thinking how hot he looks! : )

Chica said...

He does look sexy even when he is killing people in the video Bobbyanna, all kinds of mixed feelings going on with me!

I'm surprised ti hear that Discovery kicked Bear to the curb but I'm sure another cable channel will pick him up.

aw poor Bear. I'm glad he and Jake got together. I hope he gets picked up by another station

Love the video Jake is so sexy and glad to hear all the good buzz its getting

sass said...

Decided to scare myself again just now hahahaha. I can't sleep anyway so why not watch the video.*shiver* It is one dam*ed good video.

Hey Babblers, wasn't Fincher a Video director producer before he started making movies?

Yes my friends, though I recoil mentally from the thought of Jake smoking, physically he was oh so sexy lighting up, and he was simultaneously extremely frightening.


This video plus SC puts him back on the map for more work...fingers xed. I am overjoyed for his success and beyond happy for him.

I wanted to talk to you UV one day about Bret Ellis E. but you were very clear in your feelings about him :lol I subscribe to his twitter since I do like some of his movies.

I was so sick of his drooling over Ryan G one day; I was bubbling over with chatter for my babbler mates. Bret is holding one of his movies for Ryan...I think...and well, I want Jake for all the movies he can make. arr
I checked Bret E's twitter after I read your post and yes and he did complement Jake and the video twice, and yes he is definitely the critic you should try to please for this genre.
Earlier today Bret posted, that The Dark Knight Rises trailer, is better than most recent movies: I agree.
see ya soon

I only got to see the video today and I was just blown away, it's amazing!I was so into the video and Specially into Jake's hotness that the 8.35 minutes just flew by.

I hope Jake is dating Lea, I'm feeling very match maker lately and It's time to date!

Sheba baby said...

I didn't expect this type of video from that first image we saw psoeted of Jake and the birds, what a shock!

Very bloody and intense, and he can do so much with his eyes.

If Jake wanted to showcase that he could play bad, in this case a serial killer he succeeded!

bobbyanna said...

I'm a huge Jeff Bridges fan. Jagged Edge. If you've never seen the movie find it on Netflix. Or Cary Grant in Suspicion. I wonder how many of the people on twitter who are referencing Brett Easton Ellis realize that American Psycho was a black comedy? It was satire in extremis.

Sheba, I had no idea what to expect after seeing a pensive Jake and all the seagulls. All I can say is he looked really hot.

(((Paula C)))
"I'm feeling very match maker lately and It's time to date!" You always make me smile. Hope you are well.

Anonymous said...

well I watched the video again and I have to admit it's grown on me some. I also remembered Jake did play a dark character in "Good Girl."

Lily

Extra said...

I was thinking about The Good Girl too when I saw the video Lily! More so then Darko.

And I can definately see American Psycho in it as well.

It's not my cup of tea but Jake is scary good in it plus the buzz has been off the charts so it's all good if you are a Jake fan :)

I forgotto mention Ted Dwane from Mumford & Son. Harvey Weinstein and George Clooney are there, too, also cast members from The Wire & Donwton Abbey. I mean there are also lots of politicians and business leaders, etc. I'm just glad Mumford & Son got to perform @ a White House State Dinner.

I saw that, too, Bobbyanna. Just makes me grit my teeth.

Pretty cool for the Mumfords. I hope they had a great time.

bobbyanna said...

Two from Twitter about 30 mins ago:

"Love it when Jake Gyllenhaal randomly shows up where we are having dinner"

"Jake Gyllenhaal is at the bar I'm at, nbd."

UV, Getty Images had some photos of Mumfords' performance.I guess it took place outdoors.

After I read the article, seems Renner was competing with Javier Bardem for a role in The Counselor and they were really leaning towards Bardem. So maybe he now has a "hole" in his schdule.

Viv said...

Jake's performance is being praised a lot on internet.He is a really talented actor that should work more.
I don't know if he turned down the moter city coz of schedule conflict(filmed in May).Is it a little too late ao announce a new project in late March?
Anyway,I am so happy Jake got so many good reviews on his crazy killer image.He needs a new film this year.Finger crossed.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I was thinking about Jake when I heard about Mumford and Sons performing at the WH. The British PM os a big fan!

I like Renner so I can't really be annoyed that he is in talks, he probably has time on his schedule as already pointed out.

I don't know who is more stalkerish, the twitter pic or me for looking at it. Some place like the gym should be off limits for camera phones, I wouldn't like my pic being taken either but I guess Jake is use to it, but she could have asked.

I agree anons. IMO, I think it was invasive and wrong. He ought to feel safe at the damned gym.

I've just read that the brilliant David Strathairn is going to play Dr. Sloper, Catherine's father, in the Broadway revival of The Heiress. Jessica Chastain will play Katherine. I have no idea who will play Morris. That was the part Montgomery Clift played in the movie. I hope they haven't cast anyone yet. You never know...

UltraViolet said...

I don't dislike Renner. I'm gritting my teeth at hearing about another actor get a job while Jake has nothing that we know of.

Also, the Shoes tweeted a screen cap showing the video over a million views but youtube here is still below 1,000,000. It's close, though. Very cool.

Bobbyanna, I wouldn't even mind if they reversed roles and made Jake the evil schemer in a Body Heat remake. I'd love to see JAke in that kind of twisty-y turn0y movie.

When we got there, there were a couple of people ahead of us, so we had to wait. I did a double-take and realized one of the people waiting was none other than, Jake Gyllenhaal. I’ve never been a huge fan of his, but thought it was cool that he was at this hole-in-the-wall place waiting for a $35 massage just like the rest of us.

Jake Gyllenhaal in talks for 'Enemy': Film News: Denis Villeneuve on board to direct indie based on novel

Jake Gyllenhaal in talks for 'Enemy':
http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118051649.html?cmpid=RSS|News|FilmNews

Variety said...

Jake Gyllenhaal in talks for 'Enemy'
Denis Villeneuve on board to direct indie based on novel
By Justin Kroll
Before directing Hugh Jackman in "Prisoners," Denis Villeneuve will helm the indie "An Enemy" with Jake Gyllenhaal in negotiations to star.
Javier Gullón is penning the adaptation based on the novel "The Double" by Jose Saramago.

The story revolves around a dysfunctional history teacher who accidentally discovers his exact double on a rented DVD, seeks him out and ends up turning both of their lives upside down.

Niv Fichman of Rhombus Media will produce along with Miguel Angel Faura of Roxbury Pictures, in association with Mecanismo Films in Madrid.

Alliance Films will distribute in Canada and Pathé in the U.K. and France. Pathé will also handle international sales.

Villeneuve will likely shoot "Enemy" before "Prisoners" as Jackman is now busy filming Universal's "Les Miserables."

Gyllenhaal would play two roles in the film, described by sources as "dark and edgy."

Gyllenhaal just finished production on the gritty cop drama "End of Watch." He'd also been considering the revenge thriller "Motor City" but a deal could not be worked out and he had to pass.

The WME-repped Gyllenhaal was most recently seen in Summit's "Source Code." Open Road bows "End of Watch" on Sept. 28.

Villeneuve is repped by CAA and Claude Girard.

Ultra Violet wher are you? Ineed a heelp! Is this a good project?

Anonymous said...

synopsis:

Tertuliano Máximo Afonso is a divorced, depressed history teacher. To lift his spirits, a colleague suggests he rent a certain video. Tertuliano watches the film, unimpressed. But during the night, when he is awakened by noises in his apartment, he goes into the living room to find that the VCR is replaying the video. He watches in astonishment as a man who looks exactly like him-or, more specifically, exactly like he did five years before, mustachioed and fuller in the face-appears on the screen. He sleeps badly.

Against his better judgment, Tertuliano decides to pursue his double. As he roots out the man’s identity, what begins as a whimsical story becomes a “wonderfully twisted meditation on identity and individuality” (The Boston Globe). Saramago displays his remarkable talent in this haunting tale of appearance versus reality.

I have no idea if it's good or bad, GR. I'm hoping good, though it does seem like it could veer to the melodramatic side. It's an indie, which I like. Jake needs to make more of those, mix it up.

And hopefully it's a not a lengthy shoot so he can go directly to another project :)

Ultra violet, thank you for having answered me:) To me it seems a project really cool, I mean, the double role the drama, the mystery, seems all so interesting. I am really positive on the new path that is taking the Jake's career f Jake, after SC. and I also like the new agency, I hope that everything go welI, and I am also happy for Lea Seydox she is really beautiful and talented.:)

I really would not want to see Jake in the American Psycho remake. It's on overrated book and movie, but also iconic. No good can come of that.

There are some good signs for this movie, if Jake actually does it. We've all been burned by Variety before, so I think we all want to hear something definite.

Hii!!!

Will now go?? frankly my concern is not whether the film is remake, but it starts to work and do well, I've read stories of films that did not have "that script" but the actors were saving

Hey ppl at least we are sure that Jake won't fight with his co-star:)!

Sag Actor said...

I don't want to get too excited until I see Jake n set filming Enemy, we have been through this before.

The script sounds interesting and it's an indie so hopefully it will get made.

I have my fingers crossed on this latest film proj. rumor. The dual role could be interesting.

Maybe this is why he had to back away from Motor City, I'll keep my fingers crossed!

bobbyanna said...

SAG Actor, yeah, on the set! : )

Chica, this dual role seems like it would really showcase Jake. Denis Villeneuve won a lot of acclaim for his Oscar nominated Incendies, as Duncan Jones did for Moon.

Remaking American Psycho's a really bad idea no matter who they pick for it.

I don't know about that, I mean what about the question, whose better looking? I hate to see Jake fight with himself, will he get two trailes? At least he's costume changes will be greater than SC. I wonder who will get top billing? Jake or Jake.

New post. Maybe some of the anions will be bold and pick a name in this one!
