I fully expect Xavier Dolan's Mommy to be announced on August 6th so you can go ahead and add that one to my "Must Sees" list below, but as of right now my list of films I consider absolute "musts" sits at 17 movies with another nine I'll make top priority after I schedule those and then another nine that will be dependent on my screening schedule because conflicts due arise meaning any of these may be on or off the table... schedule depending. I'm going to be in Toronto from September 3-10, which means six full screening days, which means seeing 18 films will be pushing it, which also means I'm going to miss a lot of movies I would really like to see... Hell, it might even end up being worth it to skip films with already established release dates -- Foxcatcher, The Judge, Wild, The Drop, Mr. Turner, »

Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week. Nightcrawler That quick teaser for Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler caught our eye and now the film’s first official trailer locked it in. We need to know more about Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal). The two pieces work exceptionally well together. The first introduces you to the idea that Lou’s a guy in desperate need of a job and the second builds upon that by showing you how he winds up making that happen. Getting the opportunity to watch a guy navigate the world of L.A. crime journalism is inherently fascinating, but rather than lean on that appeal, these pieces put the focus on what could make Nightcrawler a true...

With today’s announcement that David Dobkin’s film The Judge will open the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, I figured that it was a good time to talk about the Tiff lineup. That Robert Downey Jr. vehicle will seek to become an awards player, and it’s not alone. Each year, scores of titles descend on Toronto in order to distinguish themselves to Academy members and various precursor voters everywhere. The festival has a solid history of producing Oscar nominees, though the big time competition this year from the New York Film Festival will certainly shine a light on just how essential a stop this fest still is. For now though, it’s a big one, and well worth a bit of discussion. As mentioned above, the opening film is The Judge, which could be a Best Actor player for Downey Jr. or perhaps even a Best Picture contender if it’s better than expected. »

Nightcrawler Trailer. Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler (2014) teaser trailer stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Bill Paxton, Rene Russo, Ann Cusack, and Anne McDaniels. Nightcrawler‘s plot synopsis: “The story is set in the “nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles,” and Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, “a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the [...]

After watching the viral video for Nightcrawler that subtly appeared earlier this week, I’m already sold on this film for which Jake Gyllenhaal lost 20lb and appears to be going a little mad sometimes.
Written by The Fall and The Bourne Legacy’s Dan Gilroy, this one is a dive into the mind of susceptible young man Louis Bloom. On the plot side of things, all we currently know is that he ‘stumbles’ upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism and from this trailer really gets into it.
What I particularly like about this first full look is it doesn’t give away an excessive amount about what’s to come but more than enough to see Gyllenhaal turn from super calm towards intensely crazy. He’s truly a man at the top of his game. This one is Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut and co-stars »

If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket. Buy a ticket. You have to make the money. If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket. Ticket. If you want to win the lottery. Ticket. If you're anything like me, you're devilishly handsome and you can't get that Nightcrawler tease out of your head. And now the Jake Gyllenhaal drama has its first trailer, and it looks plenty tense. Blockbuster screenwriter Dan Gilroy is making his directorial debut on this film, which concerns a blue-skinned mutant named Kurt Wagner, who is able to telepo- Wait, that's not it at all. Sorry, Nightcrawler, maybe you'll get a solo movie soon, or at least as soon as movie studios end racism against mutants. In this Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal plays an unemployed man who dips his toes »
Jake Gyllenhaal is front and centre in the anticipated thriller, and after recently seeing a preview video of Gyllenhaal in character, the first official trailer and poster have landed online.
Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, »

Fresh from the viral teaser that was released online over the last weekend, the first poster and teaser trailer for Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal (Enemy, Prisoners) have been released online, and we’ve got them right here…
Nightcrawler is the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, the brother Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy), who has been in amongst Hollywood for many years, most famously contributing to the abandoned Superman movie, Superman Lives, which was famously to star Nicholas Cage (Joe).
The movie is a thriller set in the underground world of crime reporting in Los Angeles. Below is also the official synopsis.

Clearly deciding that the acting lark’s old hat, Jake Gyllenhaal has decided to get a new job in the exciting, fast-paced world of crime journalism... All right, so it’s actually just his scarily focused main character in writer Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut, Nightcrawler. The first trailer for the film has arrived courtesy of the Huffington Post. Gyllenhaal, here, is Lou Bloom, a young man desperate for a job. And the gig he sets his sights on is the dark world of night-time freelance journalism, cranking up the police scanner for tips to the latest crime scene and finding the victims that can be usefully turned into lucrative footage.When he finds a friend in Nina (Rene Russo), a veteran of the murky world of TV newsgathering, he spots an opportunity to makes his name – and ends up being more a part of the story than he ever imagined. »
In the wake of Monday's evocative teaser, Open Road Films has released the first full trailer for Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as an ambitious freelance crime journalist (or, yeah, a "nightcrawler") who gets caught up in the criminal underworld he covers. Like the last trailer, there's a lot of gaunt, intense Jake Gyllenhaal extolling his work ethic, plus some bonus car chases, explosions and dead bodies (as well as a look at the famous mirror-punching scene that supposedly sent Gyllenhaal to hospital during shooting). We just hope the actual movie is as intense as these trailers. »

We recently got to see a viral video for the upcoming "Nightcrawler" thriller, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. And now we have the official trailer. Check it out below. Plot: Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of La crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Nina (Rene Russo), a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story. "Nightcrawler" is the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy and is set to hit theaters on October 17th. Trailer: »
“I believe that good things come to those who work their asses off,” Jake Gyllenhaal‘s Lou Bloom says in Nightcrawler. He’s the wide-eyed new kid on the scene of La’s underground world of freelance crime tele-journalism, and he’ll do anything to get the shot and the story. To wit: Police are harassed and their cars chased and T-boned, amid other general mayhem. Rene Russo and Bill Paxton co-star in the directorial debut of The Bourne Legacy scribe Dan Gilroy, who also wrote the pic. Open Road acquired the thriller for about $4.5 million after a bidding war at Cannes, and […] »
Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991). “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”
The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons. Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

Jake Gyllenhaal really seems to be spending a lot of time in the dark lately. The actor starred in two films in 2013, and neither of which could remotely be construed as “happy” stories. Prisoners explored the considerable moral perils involved with seeking revenge, while Enemy was a psycho-sexual examination of the age-old fear of losing one’s identity. Gyllenhaal must be enjoying the challenges these type of roles bring, as his next effort, Nightcrawler, takes him straight into the underbelly of what is simultaneously regarded as one of the most glamorous and one of the most dangerous cities in the world: Los Angeles.
After a long, ...

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s first Tiff line-up announcement, Nightcrawler unleashes its first teaser trailer upon us. The film which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo was just listed on the slate of films heading to the Toronto International Film Festival in September where it will make its world premiere.
The hotly anticipated film has been steadily increasing early buzz that was generated around Gyllenhaal’s weight loss for his role as Lou Bloom, a desperate man who stumbles into the underground world of crime journalism in Los Angeles. While his drop in weight may not be as drastic as Christian Bale or Matthew McConaughey who have each lost severe amounts of weight for previous roles, Gyllenhaal’s loss hollows out the youthful-looking actor giving us something we haven’t seen before.
In the film, Bloom joins a group of a freelance camera crew who film the highly-marketable »

After a mysterious bit of viral marketing introduced us to Jake Gyllenhaal‘s character in Dan Gilroy‘s “Nightcrawler,” the full trailer for the film has dropped, giving us much more insight to what exactly is going on. Gyllenhaal's Louis Bloom is a freelance crime journalist who's hoping to land something more serious and prestigious, perhaps an on-air position at a news station, though his intensity apparently scares potential employers off, leading him to take his career into his own hands. See video: Jake Gyllenhaal First Look as ‘Nightcrawler’ Surfaces in Craigslist Video: ‘Hard Worker Seeking Employment’ We soon see Louis with video camera. »

Dan Gilroy, brother of Tony, took over some of the writing duties on the Bourne franchise from his older sibling, who also directed the Jeremy Renner outing. Gilroy also penned Real Steel and Tarsem's The Fall. Here he makes his directorial debut with Nightcrawler, a film that foolishly escaped my gaze in yesterdays big Tiff announcement. As of this moment, the trailer certainly has my attention. Jake Gyllenhaal, on fire after his one-two punch with Denis Villeneuve last year (Enemy, Prisoners) plays Lou Bloom, an ambitious, morally dubious crime reporter in Los Angeles who, judging from the images on display, will do anything to climb the ladder at the TV newsroom. In a brilliant pitch, the trailer is narrated as a perky job interview (to a fetching, as...

The film follows Gyllenhaal, who prowls the streets of Los Angeles as a driven man who discovers the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles.
“I believe good things come to those who work their asses off,” his character says in the trailer. “If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket.”
Dan Gilroy wrote and directed the pic. Gyllenhaal also produced along with Jennifer Fox, Tony Gilroy, Bold Films’ chairman Michel Litvak and David Lancaster. Bold Films financed and its CEO Gary Michael Walters exec produced with Betsy Danbury.
“Nightcrawler” was shot in Los Angeles and was allocated a $2.3 million tax credit from the state of California.
The film will screen at the Toronto Film »
