There is a whole lot of unpleasant violence on Game of Thrones, which makes you wonder how the actors might cope with those intense scenes on set. Emilia Clarke (along with Arnold Schwarzenegger) recently appeared on BBC's Graham Norton Show to discuss Terminator Genisys, but she also took some time out from promoting that film to talk about her role on Game of Thrones — and the special way Jason Momoa lightened the mood on set.
The first trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw seemingly laid out the entire plot of the film, but the second official trailer for the director’s latest drama is more compact, focusing more on the intensity of the piece. Although Fuqua’s films in recent years haven’t been exactly amazing, the promise of Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw is too good to ignore.
Hollywood has seen its fair share of movies where man attempts to conquer nature, only to find himself thoroughly humbled. Everest looks to continue that trend, putting one of the best ensembles in recent memory smack-dab in the middle of Mother Nature’s wrath. As the title implies, the film deals with an expedition up the world’s tallest mountain going oh-so-horribly wrong. As the trailer shows us, an Everest expedition going wrong looks like an incredible movie.
The first trailer for mountain-climbing thriller Everest will arrive tomorrow, but until then, Universal has released new photos from the film, featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin and a whole lot of snowy bearded fun. Okay, maybe not fun, as this is a survival drama and things are going to get pretty unpleasant. Those beards may be all that stands between them and frostbitten chins.
More like Jacked Gyllenhaal, am I right? One of the summer releases that isn’t getting a lot of attention just yet is Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw, starring a totally ripped Jake Gyllenhaal as a distraught boxer punishing himself in the ring following a horrible tragedy — oh, the trailer doesn’t hide it, so why should we: his wife dies in an accident, leaving him to raise his daughter alone.
Remember that photo from a few months ago of a completely ripped Jake Gyllenhaal in a boxing movie? If you’ve wanted to see more from that movie, today brings us the official trailer for Southpaw, with Jake Gyllenhaal in a role like you've never seen him before.
Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are two of the most talented actors working right now, so the idea of them eventually combining their talents for one film just makes sense. Early last year, the actors were set to star together in Ezekiel Moss, which was intended as the directorial debut of Philip Seymour Hoffman before his tragic passing. But now they've found another opportunity to team up on the big screen with director Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals.
It looks like ‘Suicide Squad’ is still searching for its Rick Flagg. Following Tom Hardy’s departure from Warner Bros. upcoming DC super villain project, Jake Gyllenhaal was being eyed to take over. But the actor has basically said “Nah, bro, I’m good” and passed on the film as well. With David Ayer’s film hitting the big screen in 2016, WB still has a little time to cast the central role.
Tom Hardy was one of many high-profile actors who, last month, signed on to star in Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the DC Comics title ‘Suicide Squad’. His co-stars included Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Jai Courtney. But, the Squad will have to move on without its leader as Hardy has abruptly dropped out of the project.
In the last couple of years, David O. Russell has reinvigorated his career with a trio of high-end awards movies: ‘The Fighter,’ ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ and ‘American Hustle.’ Before his rebound, though, Russell faced a rough couple years and hit his lowest pointed with ‘Nailed,’ a dark comedy starring Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal that he shot but never finished. After some problems with the film’s financing, unions shut down production over crew members not getting paid, and Russell himself finally walked away from the movie in 2010. For years, the conventional wisdom said ‘Nailed’ would never see the light of day.
