Street signs

The New York Times interviewed End of Watch director David Ayer about making a movie in his home town.

For Mr. Ayer the streets of Los Angeles are something of an addiction. He lived on them for a time, having been thrown out of the house by his parents, he said. Later he began to write his experiences into stories during service on an attack submarine in the Navy.

He put aside his fear of being type-cast as the go-to guy for the Los Angeles police genre to pursue what he now calls “the ultimate cop movie.” It aims to transcend clichés that have piled up over the years, he explained, by portraying a pair of local patrol officers, played by Mr. Gyllenhaal and Mr. Peña, who are not crazed or corrupt. Instead they bring fierce mutual loyalty and an unexpected sweetness to their pursuit of goodness in a bad world.

The shock value in “End of Watch” lies as much in its intimacy as in its insider’s look at Mr. Ayer’s own streets.

Those streets, he said, have become more stable through the years, as a cellphone culture took drug dealers off the corners, and the police force began to mirror the city’s changing ethnic makeup, with more Hispanic and Asian officers. Even the term “South Central,” stigmatized by crime, is now out of vogue; Mr. Ayer shot in a zone known as Newton.

There are easier places to film. But, Mr. Ayer said, “the street signs would be wrong.”

On the first of his many police ride-alongs, Mr. Gyllenhaal said in a telephone interview, the squad car arrived on the scene of a drug dealer’s murder. Later Mr. Gyllenhaal and Mr. Peña endured a controlled burn by fire officials in Orange County, in order to acquire what Mr. Ayer calls “muscle memory” that would help them to play a scene in a flaming house.

In an unusual exercise with live ammunition, the actors learned to shoot past each other in what proved to be a lesson less in police tactics than in bonding.

“This guy has my life in his hands for real,” Mr. Gyllenaal recalled thinking. “I realized, I finally knew what we were dealing with.” (Mr. Ayer said the actors were “safe all the time” during the exercise at a training ground in Burbank.)

Let's hope they keep up this level of PR for EoW.

This movie is going to be epic, I showed the tralier to my brother, and he said just WOW! and he is not the type of person that easily go thrills.
I am so excited for An Enemy, I just can't wait for it, meanwhile I have read twice the story:)

No prob, anon. Apparently, the Edward Sharpe show was at the Roseland Ballroom. A few more tweets:

I wonder if Marcus Mumford went. He was in town for the Met Ball last night.

The trailer is out way too soon so I fear that marketing has already been screwed up. There is no way to keep the buzz going for a cop movie for 4 months especially with all the new cop TV shows that are on or about to premeire in the fall. Jake has the worse luck, bless his sweet little bald head bad dancing self.

UltraViolet said...

Well, I'm a pessimist but I think it's too soon to say it's already screwed up. They just need to keep up the marketing and PR, in a smart way.

From FB:

Nolan and I had a smoke and chilled with Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of his new movie today. (yeah, he's all right!). :)

Also, I forgot to say to KY, I haven't read An Enemy. I don't want to be spoiled for the movie. But I hear it's intriguing.

Glad your brother liked the trailer. It's definitely pulling in fans from different demographics. Fingers crossed they all show up for the movie and enjoy it.

I think that to release the trailer with The Avengers, has been indeed an intelligent move.

Monica said...

I hope they put the trailer before Prometheus.
Many, many films that will debut in September are beginning to release their trailers now, as Argo.
And this week, Warner will release the trailer for Gangster Squad, which will debut only in December.

Very good point Monica!:)


Monica said...

End of Watch will debut in the same day of animated Hotel Transylvania and Looper, Joseph Gordon Levitt's movie, that had its trailer released last month.

Anonymous said...

I just hope there are no blockbusters coming out there, usually those are set in the summer (like the Dark Knight Rises)

I'm just hoping that since it's at the end of the year it will be noticed more by the academy, GG etc than Source Code was.


UltraViolet said...

I wouldn't get my hopes up for awards consideration for EoW. I just don't think it will have that pull.

I'm a little worried that Looper is coming out the same day. We'll see if one of them moves.

Is Jake Gyllenhaal Hooking Up With a Twilight Star?!

Anna Kendrick is a very lucky lady.

Not only did the Oscar-nominated Twilight star, 26, get to lock lips with Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, 26, in the soon-to-be released What to Expect When You're Expecting, but…

READ: Exclusive! Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford Leaving New York! Where's He Going?

She also got it on with Jake Gyllenhaal, 31, in the upcoming police drama End of Watch.

"Not bad," Kendrick says of her hot costars. "Anna Kendrick's doing OK. I'm nailing it."

Careful with your wording, Ms. Kendrick!

Anyhoo, she says things got unusually comfortable with Gyllenhaal—so much so, you may have thought they'd become a real-life couple. "We were shooting [End of Watch] on tiny cameras with very little lighting and a very small crew. There was a lot of improv," Kendrick said. "It felt incredibly intimate. You're in character all the time because you're shooting all the time. So Jake and I would be holding hands and suddenly we'd be like, 'Oh, we're not filming.'"

Ask her just how steamy things got with Jakey and Kendrick begins to giggle. "Oh, my goodness—I'm actually blushing," she said. "Yeah, it gets all sexy time with us."

RELATED: We're Livestreaming the What to Expect When You're Expecting Premiere—Only on E! Online!

Lionsgate As for Mr. Crawford, sounds like he had Kendrick at hello. "He's scary handsome," she gushed. "When I first met him, I felt like I shouldn't look him in the eye. It's like he was a wild animal

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the article. I wondered if Anna would be asked about Jake during the promotion for her movie. Seems like she had a good time with Jake.

It continues to amaze me how many tweets TDAT inspires. It's on TV all the time, but people always watch and always tweet about Jake.

Hard to see if he's been out and about amid all the TDAT and Anna K article tweets. But a NYer on FB said she saw him today. No details.

bobbyanna said...

I'm looking forward to the marketing campaign for EoW,too, and monica, you're right,placing the trailer with Prometheus would be an awesome move. Prometheus and Batman are the two films I'm most looking forward to this summer.

Good to see Anna riffing about how much fun she had working with Jake.

I'm also looking forward to the rest of the casting for Enemy.

What a great interview , thanks so much for posting it UV! The movie is really intense and the interview gives insight on David's upbring and how it shaped the script.

I hope they don't screw up the marketing too, it's really a great action cop/drama but there is an intimacy to it like David has said that draws you in, it's not just car chases and explosions.

UltraViolet said...

Funny, from FB:

passed jake gyllenhaal on the subway today nbd.
38 minutes ago ·

i will tell you the exact chain of events that went on. first you saw him and in your mind you went OMG! then you made sure to walk by him without any expression pretending like you couldnt care less because thats what real new yorkers do. guaranteed.

yea tommy pretty much. except that i did a double take, then kinda stared with my mouth open, then awkwardly leaned to my right so that he had to brush shoulders with me to pass.

And from PopSugar:

Jay-Z was the center of attention last night at the launch party for the new cognac, D'ussé, at the Top of the Standard. He went to the NYC hotel despite the big playoff game going down between the NY Knicks and the Miami Heat. That wasn't a problem for Jay-Z though — the Standard wheeled out a big screen so Jay could watch the action in his VIP area. Beyoncé Knowles didn't join her husband, but her little sister Solange was on hand along with Pharrell Williams and a bearded Jake Gyllenhaal, who politely declined being photographed when he arrived just before 10 p.m.

Sheba said...

Was umming and ahhing (a common Brit term) about watching the trailer but could stay away no longer. Almost sorry I did cos it made me ache for September 28th. That is going to be an awesome ride. I was a bit worried about the shaky camera shots as it can make one dizzy but the trailer was a very good balance.

Jay Z (not so much) and Pharrell (gorgeous cool dude) are credible choices to soundtrack this movie. The gritty with the quirky seems a good mix and good fit.

... And. Yes very proud of your president too on his stance on gay marriage. When you guys are done with his second term can we have him?!!

Very proud of President Obama.

Ayer is a pretty interesting guy. The NYT article was a good read.

Pathé International hedges its bets on An Enemy
What a line-up for French international sales agency Pathé International who, at the 65th Cannes Film Festival (May 16 to 27) Film Market, will launch pre-sales for Denis Villeneuve’s next film, a psychological thriller currently in pre-production called An Enemy! After the success of Incendies (nominated in 2011 for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film), the filmmaker will now adapt a novel, The Double by Portuguese Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, to the big screen, on a screenplay by Javier Gullón. This Canadian-Spanish (Rhombus Mediam in Canada, Roxbury Pictures and Mecanismo Films in Spain) co-production is to star famous American actor Jake Gillenhaal.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, Monica. I don't think the headline writer knows what it means to hedge a bet (play both sides to cover a possible loss).

But it's great news to hear about them selling it. Maybe they'd have better luck if Jake showed up to help the cause :)

Sheba, from your mouth to the electorate's ears! We'll send him your way once his work is done here.

You really are a spoiler-phobe. I don't like to know what's going to happen, but I've never tried not to watch a trailer.

KY. said...

"Is that Jake Gyllenhaall?" asked a partygoer on the 18th floor of the Standard Hotel Wednesday night.

Indeed it was, although a number of people weren't sure. A security guard told Mr. Gyllenhaal he'd need to check in, directing the movie-star toward a cadre of young women in pink dresses.

Holding clip-boards, the women were guarding the entrance to a fete for the launch of D'ussé, a cognac from the liquor company Bacardi, produced at the Chateau de Cognac in France. Recognizing the actor at a glance, the young women did not need to check Mr. Gyllenhaal in under "G," after all; they ushered him through the swinging doors leading to the storied Standard Hotel bar.

.One couldn't fault a few guests for failing to identify the "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" star, whose famous face was hidden behind a scruffy beard, a black baseball hat and a zip-up hoodie, "Donnie Darko" style. But the rapper and businessman Jay-Z, who greeted the actor from behind a VIP rope by the bar, did not mistake Mr. Gyllenhaal, an apparent friend of his, for anyone else.

On one side of that rope, the actor and rapper watched the Knicks versus Heat game, rapt. Joining them were the singer Solange Knowles and musician Pharrell Williams.

On the other side were the party reporters, plus-ones, photographers and publicists, who were denied an actual interview with the higher-profile guests but toasted cognac glasses nonetheless.

Musician Solange Knowles
.A spokeswoman for the event said Jay-Z and his guests had requested a television set, tuned to the Knicks game. (They lost.)

Alain Allegretti, the chef behind New York's La Promenade des Anglais, had cooked for foodies and editors the night before, at a preview party for the brand. What does one serve for the editors who eat everything? "Foie-gras, roasted rhubarb glazed with the cognac, soft-shell crab, rack of lamb with cognac sauce and chocolate mousse!" he said.

Mr. Allegretti had also recently dined with Jay-Z and Beyoncé, when they swung by his new Atlantic City restaurant, Azure.

Actress Adrienne Bailon
."We had a lot of fun!" Mr. Allegretti recalled. "They are very humble."

A few glasses of D'ussé in, a reporter asked how this drink differentiates itself from all the other expensive liquors on the market.

"A lot of cognacs have been around for hundreds of years," said Christine Molle, who works at Bacardi and helped create the product. "This is a new take on it." Ms. Molle added, "Jay-Z is known to be a cognac drinker."

A glance at the VIP section, from all the way over by the other bar, confirmed her assertion. "Cheers!" she said.

Mary you are welcome:)

President Obama, is a President worthy of this name, he is a bless and he represents a hope for us in the rest of the world too:)

UltraViolet said...

Was just about to post that, KY :) Thanks!

Generally, it's better to post the Jake-relevant parts of an article, rather than the whole thing. Just makes it easier to read, rather than posting a big block of text.

Also, when you cut and paste like that, a lot of extra junk gets in there, like the photo captions.

But thank you for keeping us informed!

I like how the reporter was basically mocking the whole us and them aspect of the party, as well as the product.

Looks like Jake is back in L.A., the Medical building stop off is probably a check up for insurance before he starts on The Enemy.

I'm really jazzed with all the positive responses from the EOW screenings and the trailer.

I'm curious, does Jake go to his own doctor for his pre-filming physical or does the studio send him to a doctor?

I wonder how long he was in LA for?

Interesting casting. I wonder what part Isabella Rosellini will play. I've always loved her.

I haven't seen Sarah Gadon in anything. Melanie Laurent was good in Inglorious Bs. I guess she was okay in Beginners, but the movie was so bad, it's hard to tell.

"Existential erotic thriller" is an intriguing description...

The Shoes “Time to Dance” among the best music videos in the upcoming Worldwide Short Film Festival in TORONTO

I KNEW this video was EPIC! Just like I KNEW Jake would be recognized for his outstanding performance!

Scheduled in the Toronto Worldwide Short Film Festival Scene Not Herd: Music Videos section, The Shoes “Time To Dance”, this is how it is presented:

Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Source Code) taps into his dark side to play a savage serial killer with a flair for the mundane in this epic, video-cum-short film showcasing this bangin’ electro-dance jam.

Since Jake will be in Toronto during the Festival (June 5-10, 2012) maybe he’ll attend one of the ceremonies. I’d love to see him accept an award for The Shoes video (I’m sure the band would be happy to win, too).

Jake Gyllenhaal is in Toronto, and here’s where he’s been so far

Did you know that Jake Gyllenhaal is in Toronto? He’ll be here to work on Denis Villeneuve’s film An Enemy from May 22 to July 13, but he arrived earlier than his expected call time and has already been spotted across the city. Gyllenhaal was out eating at Hiro Sushi in the St. Lawrence Market area last night, and just the sight of him is sending girls into a frenzy (okay, so far we can count one girl, but still). There’s also a rumour that Gyllenhaal will be staying at Toronto’s Thompson Hotel. We’ll be sure to keep a lookout for him taking his morning run.

It looks like a gorgeous hotel that Jake is staying at. I've been to Toronto many times but not to that hotel.

Like you said Bobbyanna, it's a short hop from NY to Toronto, so we will be getting tweets from NY and Toronto, back and forth.

He will be super busy this summer/fall that's for sure!

No details bout I thought the comment was funny:

Met Brandon Phillips, Drew Stubbs and Jay Bruce of the Reds, watched baseball, got a break. Then saw Tyson Beckford and Jake Gyllenhaal while out, went back to Fan Cave to watch more baseball and did a radio interview. The A's are currently losing. Horrible day. ;)

Yah, most women zeroed in on that part too.
