Watch out for Nocturnal Animals

From GQ UK: When Jake Gyllenhaal met Tom Ford

Jake Gyllenhaal is not just an Oscar-nominated actor with a legendary work ethic and a drop-dead smile. He is also a Jewish boy from LA, a Swedish nobleman, godson of Paul Newman, has studied Buddhism at Columbia with Robert Thurman, and is known for transforming himself physically and emotionally for his roles. Tom Ford is not just a fashion designer and film director, he is ะฐ 21st-century Renaissance man. After revolutionising fashion, he moved effortlessly into film with unprecedented success: his first film, A Single Man, was nominated for a raft of awards including the Best Actor Oscar nomination for lead Colin Firth. Now the two have teamed up for Mr Ford's sophomore feature, Nocturnal Animals, with Jake Gyllenhaal taking the dual role of Edward Sheffield, a writer, and Tony Hastings, the main character from Edward's book who suffers an unfortunate fate with his family while going on their summer holidays. Here, in an exclusive transatlantic telephone conversation, Mr Ford interviews Mr Gyllenhaal about the art of making movies, writing screenplays and being vulnerable.

Finally, the trailer!

And the teaser for the teaser:

And since Jake didn't get to go to TIFF, let's revisit Venice, in black and white:

Venit, vidimus, vicit

Nocturnal Animals and Jake Gyllenhaal made a triumphant appearance on the Lido in Venice last week. There was high praise for the movie and its stars, both on-screen on on the red carpet. Trying something new for GB, here are some Instagram photos and videos that show off the style - and the fun - of the Venice Film Festival.

Andiamo, Venezia

It's the day for Nocturnal Animals at the Venice Film Festival.

Video interview with Amy and Jake:

Snippet from the press conference:

I don't know if this will load: "Speaking at the Venice Film Festival, Jake Gyllenhaal explains why he couldn’t say no to a role in director Tom Ford’s new film, “Nocturnal Animals,” while Amy Adams talks about her fear of "walking the wrong path" in her life." (Spoiler: It's because the paper was red.)
