Another Thanksgiving is upon us, which means we'll gather around tables with friends and family and be asked to share what we're thankful for. Here at ScreenCrush, we think now is a good time to reflect on the wonderful bounty that has been delivered to us from the benevolent creators of film and television throughout 2014. This year has given us much to be grateful for, and so now we say thanks as we prepare to stuff our faces and fall into meat and pie comas (and ready ourselves for that 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' trailer).

'Nightcrawler' Director Dan Gilroy on High Expectations and Chris Rock as Jimmy Olsen

It’s remarkable that ‘Nightcrawler’ is Dan Gilroy’s first directorial effort. The film is so stylized – but not in a “look at my style!” kind of way – that it feels like it’s from someone who has at least done this before. It’s funny to listen to Gilroy – brother of fellow writer/director Tony Gilroy – explain why he finally wanted to direct, which basically comes down to his nice way of saying, “other people were screwing up my vision.” And now he’s written ‘Nightcrawler,’ and Gilroy wasn’t about to let anyone else screw it up.

For a long time, Marvel had their eye on Joaquin Phoenix to star in 'Doctor Strange.' In fact, he was far enough along in his negotiations that Marvel hoped to bring him out on stage at Comic-Con to introduce him to the crowd. Phoenix, in case you haven't noticed, is mercurial and negotiations stalled. And, then they stalled some more. And, then finally Marvel decided to move on completely. Now, here we are back at square one as Marvel has a completely new shortlist of actors to star in their next superhero film. We previously told you about Ewan McGregor, but who else does Marvel have their eye on?

One of the films that may be flying a little under your radar is 'Nightcrawler,' the new movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal as the off-kilter Lou Bloom, a guy who inserts himself into the lurid world of L.A. cable news. In this new clip, Gyllenhaal makes an introduction to Rene Russo, who plays reporter Nina, and although brief, you get a sense of the film's darkly comedic tone.

“Do you want to do an interview in bed? It’s never happened. Come on. It’ll be fun.” These are the words Rene Russo said to me when I entered her hotel room to interview her at the Toronto International Film Festival for the movie ‘Nightcrawler’ -- which just happens to be written and directed by her husband, Dan Gilroy, who (A) I had just met and (B) who had just left the room.

A few weeks ago, I was in a local drug store by my apartment in New York City. Near the back of the store, there’s a discount rack where everything is 25 percent off its the original price. Mixed in with overstocked seasonal items was a LEGO set for the 2010 movie ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.’ Included in the set was a mini LEGO figure of Jake Gyllenhaal. He’s riding an ostrich. As I stared in disbelief at LEGO Jake Gyllenhaal riding an ostrich, it was like staring into an alternate future where these were the kind of movies that Gyllenhaal was still making … instead of a glorious movie like ‘Nightcrawler.’

'Enemy' Review

Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve have recently set about turning their blossoming cinematic partnership into the kind of professional pairing that cranks out clever, creepy feature films that stick with their audiences long after they end. In short, these two like to make skin-crawling films that freak people out, and it turns out they’re pretty good at it.
Villeneuve and Gyllenhaal premiered both of their collaborations last year at the Toronto International Film Festival, though their bigger-budget (and bigger-named) ‘Prisoners’ hit theaters while the intriguing ‘Enemy’ bided its time before a more low-key release. While ‘Prisoners’ presented a terrifying premise that was still relatable – a pair of suburban couples are heartbroken when their young daughters go missing, and the fallout is very unexpected – ‘Enemy’ goes full throttle on a plot line that’s both bizarre and purposely hard to swallow.
