Jake Gyllenhaal’s Startling ‘Southpaw’ Makeover: Exclusive Photo

3 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Jake Gyllenhaal won fans for his dedication and commitment in losing 25 pounds to play the sociopathic nocturnal adrenaline junkie and camera man Lou Bloom in Nightcrawler. He’s remade himself in a whole different physical fashion to play a championship prize fighter next year in Southpaw, and I’m betting it will have Gyllenhaal in the conversation with past actors who’ve trained to turn in memorable ring performances, a list that includes Raging Bull’s Robert De Niro, The Boxer‘s Daniel Day-Lewis, The Fighter‘s Mark Wahlberg and The Hurricane’s Denzel Washington.

Here, Deadline exclusively reveals the first image of Gyllenhaal from the Antoine Fuqua-directed Kurt Sutter-scripted Southpaw; it is clear Gyllenhaal has turned himself into a jacked, ripped beast, gaining 15 pounds of pure muscle. Gyllenhaal plays Junior Middleweight Champion Billy “The Great” Hope, a lefty champ who loses everything in a personal tragedy »

Daniel Espinosa In Talks To Direct Boston Strong As Casey Affleck Departs Marathon Bombing Drama

19 November 2014 7:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How soon is too soon? 20th Century Fox is already developing Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge’s still-unpublished Boston Strong, about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, into a feature film, and now we’re hearing that the project is close to gaining a helmer – Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) is in talks to direct. It’s not all good news for the film, however, seeing as the previously attached Casey Affleck has reportedly dropped out.

Espinosa, who is currently putting the finishing touches on Soviet Union-set period thriller Child 44, has been extremely in demand since directing Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington in the aforementioned 2012 action-thriller. His name has also recently come up in association with the Jo Nesbo adaptation Blood on Snow and John Grisham pic The Racketeer, though he’s not officially attached to either project.

As for Affleck, the star became attached to star and produce in October, but »

16 November 2014 12:35 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Nearly 20 years after moviegoers were first introduced to Harry and Lloyd, the pair of morons once again ruled the box office this weekend.Long-awaited sequel Dumb and Dumber To opened to $36.1 million, which was enough to take first place away from strong holdover Big Hero 6.The Top 12 earned $129.6 million this weekend, which is up nine percent from the same weekend last year. Dumb and Dumber To's $36.1 million is the biggest live-action debut for Jim Carrey since 2003's Bruce Almighty, and is also the best opening ever for the Farrelly Brothers. Among recent comparable titles, it's a bit lower than the five-day openings for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues ($39.5 million) and We're the Millers ($37.9 million), and is a step above recent road trip comedies Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa ($32.1 million) and Identity Thief ($32.1 million).The original Dumb and Dumber was a massive box office hit back in 1994, and developed legions »

Why you wanna fly, Blackbird?: Mbatha-Raw Vibrantly Imbues Prince-Blythewood’s Showbiz Melodrama

A systematically underrated director, Gina Prince-Bythewood returns with her third feature film, Beyond the Lights, a showbiz romantic melodrama that could have maintained an all-too familiar narrative and tone if it weren’t for the freshness of its perspective and a vibrant performance from lead Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Originally titled Blackbird, so named for the Nina Simone track that figures heavily into the protagonist’s story, Prince-Bythewood’s less spectacular title change due to several other films in development with the same title (including the latest from David Mamet and now a Rooney Mara vehicle as well) lends the film a rather truncated, less artistic aura than it deserves. While not completely absent of a bit of schmaltz and customized fantasy, Prince-Bythewood achieves rare moments of actual, believable chemistry between her leads, and, most importantly, maintains an air »

Armie Hammer Joins Nate Parker’s Nat Turner Biopic ‘The Birth Of A Nation’

12 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer has joined the cast of actor/director Nate Parker’s The Birth Of A Nation, a biopic of African-American slave turned revolutionary Nat Turner, who led a bloody rebellion in 1831 and went down in history as one of the most controversial American figures preceding the Civil War.

Turner, born in 1800, led the famously violent Virginia insurrection that moved from plantation to plantation freeing slaves and left 60 white men, women, and children dead. He was later captured, arrested, and hanged but his legacy grew to mythic proportions.

Parker broke out opposite Denzel Washington in 2007’s The Great Debaters and stars in this week’s Relativity release Beyond The Lights from director Gina Prince-Bythewood, makes his directorial debut with the historical drama, which he spent years scripting. He will also star in The Birth Of A Nation with Hammer, who’s playing Samuel Turner, the son »

11 November 2014 1:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quality be damned – you put Denzel Washington in an action-thriller, and audiences will turn out in droves.

Now, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that it will be bringing The Equalizer to Blu-Ray just in time for the new year.

The Digital HD release will take place on December 16th, with the Blu-Ray and DVD both touching down two weeks later on December 30th.

Need For Speed Director Scott Waugh Tackling Inversion

10 November 2014 7:50 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

No one’s is ever going to launch an Oscar campaign for Need for Speed, but there’s a case to be made for unpretentious, action-packed popcorn pleasures like the racing thriller. Aaron Paul gave a mesmerizing performance, the stunts were spectacular and, perhaps best of all, it proved that helmer Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) knows his way around a slick action vehicle. Now, Waugh is set to dive into the deep end for a much pricier venture – a $120 million sci-epic titled Inversion.

The script, from Bragi Schut (Season of the Witch) and David Arata (Spy Game), follows a young Chinese scientist and a street-smart American ex-patriate who team up and race against time to prevent a cataclysmic reversal of gravity, which would send entire cities and civilians falling into the sky to certain death.

It’s an exciting premise, and Waugh’s background as a stunt coordinator should »

Shelf Life: Fallen

10 November 2014 6:58 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. Mixing genres isn't always an easy thing. Mixing a heavy supernatural element into the lot more grounded world of the police procedural should be nigh on impossible, but this is something 1998's Fallen does with ease. Telling a tale where body swapping demons rub shoulders with serial killers and dogged detectives, Fallen is a solid, wonderfully demented thriller. Starting with the obiligtory 90's scene of the end of the movie being used as a framing device, the movie properly kicks off with Denzel Washington's John Hobbes attending the execution of serial killer Edgar Reese, a wonderfully evil mad man portrayed by Elias Koteas (a character actor we'll all know as Casey Jones from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie).

Weekend Report: Disney's 'Big Hero 6' Eclipses Nolan's 'Interstellar'

9 November 2014 12:40 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

In what could be considered a minor upset, Disney Animation's Big Hero 6 took the top spot at the box office this weekend ahead of Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic Interstellar.Playing at 3,761 theaters, Big Hero 6 opened to $56.2 million this weekend. That's up 15 percent from fellow Disney Animation movie Wreck-It Ralph, which opened to $49 million around the same time in 2012. Big Hero 6 also had the second-highest animated opening of the year ahead of How to Train Your Dragon 2 ($49.5 million). This is undeniably a strong start for Big Hero 6: it's rare that an original animated movie opens to $50-million-plus. By promoting the unique, humorous robot Baymax, Disney managed to get huge turnout from family moviegoers (they represented 72 percent of attendance this weekend). Still, there was an assumption that Frozen's phenomenal success had elevated the Disney Animation brand to a new level, and that didn't exactly prove true this weekend. »

Few Films to Open AFI Fest Have Garnered Oscar Nominations

6 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The American Film Institute’s AFI Fest opens tonight in Hollywood with the world premiere of J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year. The film stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain as a couple trying to run a business and live in New York City during 1981, which was statistically one of the city’s most violent years. This is Chandor’s first film to premiere in Los Angeles. Though the film is hoping to garner some Oscar nominations, only six of the past 14 films to open AFI Fest have gone on to receive Oscar nominations and none have been for best picture.

Of the six films to garner Oscar nominations, the only film to win an award was 2005’s Walk the Line, which resulted in Reese Witherspoon taking home the Oscar for best actress. The Johnny Cash biopic scored four other nominations, including film editing and best actor. »

Production begins on Olympus Has Fallen 2

4 November 2014 11:02 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Olympus Has Fallen 2 is definitely happening, as production commences on London Has Fallen...

Production has finally begun on the sequel to last year's surprise action hit, Olympus Has Fallen. Entitled London Has Fallen, the new movie moves the bulk of the action to the UK, with the catalyst being the death of the British Prime Minister 'under mysterious circumstances'.

The funeral of said Pm attracts leaders and posh people from across the world, and that's when the plot to, er, kill them all kicks in. Oh, and the terrorists this time apparently want to take down 'every known landmark in the British capital'.

If they destory that nice coffee shop we got to whenever we head down to London, then we'll have the bastards ourselves.

Mind you, Gerard Butler's Secret Service agent, Mike Branning, is back on hand to save the day. Also returning from Olympus Has Fallen »
