Prisoners and Enemy territory
Prisoners promotion moved across the pond to the UK. But Stateside, Warner Bros. is letting American audiences know who's number one:
Some photos from the Apple store event in London Monday. Hands on your knees, boys:
Jake seems skeptical:
I'll take it from here, Hugh:
I'm not crazy, I swear!
A short instagram video. And a youtube clip.
And a new poster, for Brazil.
This is from TIFF, I think. You've heard some of this before from Jake, on how he went about creating his character. But the interviewer really gets into it, and so does Jake. Some funny, insightful stuff:
This interview is funny, because Jake gets lost in his own babble:
In typical Jake Gyllehnaal fashion, during this onslaught of Prisoners promotion and goodness, we are goven the first official peeks at Enemy, poster, short scene and teaser trailer:
Enemy director Denis Villeneuve and star Sarah Gadon attended the San Sebastian Film Festival:
Oh, how nice it would have been to see Jake in that beautiful setting. A shame he did not go.
Some reaction to the film from Spain:
Late tweet: The Enemy is fantastic... The film every film student wants to make. Gyllenhaal is great... And a killer ending. Sleep tight.
Translated, from RTVE:
Little more can be said without spoiling Enemy for those who have not seen it. The plot development comes through shocks and and symbols, and makes you revisit the movie backwards, looking for some reassuring interpretation. Sexual desire and family are issues that weigh heavily on an atmosphere of unreal, yellow Toronto.
Virtually all the media, except those who were at TIFF last week saw Enemy for the first time at the screening last night. And it played well. In recollection, the film earns its structure and introspective, overwhelming aura. Nobody can deny the visual talent of Villeneuve, whether or not you like the movie.
According to this story, the movie was interrupted by applause several times, even though many caution that the film has to be seen and then absorbed. They also called Jake's performance "impressive."
Here's the Enemy poster in San Sebastian:
