Screening Time



The Prisoners screening tour moved to the East Coast this week, with a screening of the movie and a Q&A at the Museum of the Moving Image on Sunday night. I think it's the film that is supposed to move, not the garish backdrop/kaleidoscope.







If it's Tuesday morning, that must have been MoMA last night:






No real reports from the screenings, but Variety has posted a snippet of their Prisoners event:



And from another LA screening last week:



Jake has also done more interviews. Here he is for Gold Derby:



And for Movies.com, plus brief chats with Indiewire and Vulture.

Have we seen this image before? It was posted on Instagram by an Anne Hathaway fan site:

A brief instagram video from MoMA. A funny moment.

And Prisoners wins an award: The Most Pirated Movie of the Week!

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Wow, the Prisoners campaign is really on a roll! I hope Jake gets some awards love, he gives an incredible performance. I know that Hugh had a cancer scare and is being treated but i also think that he isn't getting as much buzz as Jake.
That is such a cute pic id Jake and Anne UV, thanks!

He looks so much better, glad that he is putting the weight back on.

Mary said...

Thanks UV Jake sure is busy.He does look good glad to see a little more weight on him.

bobbyanna said...

Lots of good stuff in these posts, UV, thanks.

Whoa,that colorful background almost looks animated! LOL!

The best part of all of this is that Jake is enjoying himself.

Found a new Kormakur interview, 11/26/2013:

http://www.denofgeek.us/movies/2-guns/231194/exclusive-baltasar-kormakur-talks-directing-2-guns

......he was gracious enough to Skype with me from Iceland, as he prepares work on his next film, "Everest", this one about the famed disaster in the 1990s, which is set to star Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Hawkes.

- .....And you know how Hollywood functions. They just pigeonhole you right away [Laughs]. I’m pretty much breaking away from that right now with Everest, which is closer to The Deep, the Icelandic film I made two years ago. It was listed for the Oscars last year, so that’s kind of where I’m at. I have no problem doing action. It’s fun. It’s just not something I see myself only doing in the future.

- Jumping ahead, could you talk a little about Everest and what else you’re walking on right now?
- Basically I’m in prep, and we start shooting in January. It’s a true story. It’s the same story as Into Thin Air. It’s not based on the book; it’s based on numerous books. One is Left For Dead, Beck Weathers’ book, and The Climb. There are so many books about this and just the life rights of the people who are involved. It’s the story of Rob Hall, and Beck Weathers, and Jon Krakauer, and Scott Fischer, I mean it’s a fabulous opportunity. I was basically in Nepal a couple of weeks ago scouting Everest. Getting paid for that is almost a luxury [Laughs].

- That’s going to be rough location shooting, I imagine.
- Yeah, it’s a tough one. We’re shooting in Italy, and Nepal, and UK, and maybe something in Iceland. You know, just very minimal. It’s the kind of movie that comes along very rarely. It’s been very hard to get off the ground. It’s been financially complicated.

- How long have you been trying to make this movie?
- Well, they’ve been trying to make this movie for 10 years. It started as Stephen Daldry like 10 years ago. Then it was brought to my attention probably in the post-production of Contraband, which is two years ago. We were supposed to start a little earlier, but it’s not a bad thing, because I didn’t have too much time either. Since then, we had a partner and that fell apart; it’s been a complicated process. But I’m not a director who’s been waiting without a job for two years, so I’m not complaining in any way. It’s just one of these projects that hopefully the hardship of getting them done — will benefit from the alignment and have something that was worth fighting for. Sometimes the projects that are really hard to get actually are the ones you’re proudest of.



"We’re shooting in Italy, and Nepal, and UK, and maybe something in Iceland. It’s the kind of movie that comes along very rarely." I bet Jake will have the time of his life doing this one. Imagine the Q&As afterwards.
Not bad at all the delay. Gave more time to Kormakur for preparation AND gave Jake 2x1 opportunities: couple of months to properly get back in shape and free time to headline the Oscar push for Prisoners. As originally planned Jake would've been in Italy now. None of these great Q&As. He would've done only THR roundtable, Hollywood Award, Nightcrawler, then off to the mountains. 3x1 actually: enough time to get in shape, to do Q&As and to enjoy the buzz created around him.

Jake's fan

That is one wild background, it will keep you awake.

It won't be long before Everest will be filming. I wonder how much time they'll be in Iceland. I have a friend who honeymooned there

Just watched the movie "Prisoners" and now have to apologize to my TV for screaming so loud. Intense and amazing film. GREAT performances.


he seems to be gaining weight faster than I expected.

Anonymous said...

Few weeks ago people freaked out calling him skeletal, he put it back on, now you're calling him fat???? Mad world

Monica said...

I didn't say that he's fat, and never complained when he was skinny. Gain weight fast is worrying.

It reminded me of Mermon, she wanted to see Jake again on Ellen:

Jake Gyllenhaal, Kings of Leon http://www.ellentv.com/episodes/jake-gyllenhaal-kings-of-leon/ via @TheEllenShow

Liking Gyllenhaal more and more. Growing as an actor and a man. Generous spirit. A searcher. http://thelmadams.com/wordpress/2013/11/26/qa-jake-gyllenhaal-takes-no-prisoners-when-playing-a-man-with-a-badge/ …

I didn't think you were calling Jake fat Monica, just commenting on how fast he is getting back to his normal weight. But its easier to gain weight than lose it. He is still has a little ways to go. I was more worried about Jake losing muscle definition which is tougher to put back on.\

Anonymous said...

That Jake is just appearing on Ellen for a free Kings of Leon concert. What a cheap guy, lol.

Anonymous said...

He has 20 pounds to put back on. It's a sign of good health that he's gaining the weight easily. Worrying he's putting back his normal weight too fast is exaggerated, you're blowing things out of proportions. He looks good, healthy.

Ich bin erstaunt wie schnell Jake sein Gewicht wieder hat Er sieht so
auch wieder viel besser aus.Nur was stört,sind die Haare.Aber die kommen vielleicht auch noch ab.Ich hoffe es.Wenn dann noch der Verband noch weg kommt,dann ist er wieder wie neu.
Alles Gute für Jake.

Chica said...

That background is distracting! Museum of the Moving Image does have a funky vibe to it. Yes Jake looks like he is having a blast !

Paula C. said...

Great post UV,I just felt like I was talking to Jake on skype in that Gold derby interview, felt intimate,lol. He looks amazing,I'm starting to like the hair style.

Sami said...

Wenn ich mir heute die Bilder von Jake ansehe,muß ich feststellen das er sich ganz schöne Backen angefuttert hat.Wie das so schnell geht.In kurzer Zeit zehn Kilo runterhungern und plötzlich hat er Pausbacken.

Roger Deakins' nomination is definitely highly deserved.
