Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Fantastic Fest is excited to announce the second wave of events, special guests and film programming. Fantastic Fest 2014 takes place September 18-25th in Austin, Texas at the newly reopened Alamo South Lamar and Highball. Get ready to be blown away by Lionsgate's latest action-packed thriller, John Wick starring Keanu Reeves, with a red carpet gala screening with Reeves and directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski in attendance. John Wick is the story of a former ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is a fresh and stylized take on the "assassin genre." Also starring in John Wick are Willem Dafoe and Adrianne Palicki.

We are three weeks away until Fantastic Fest. Kind of amazing to think about. This year, I am blessed to bring Mike Hassler with me. We will be seeing as many films as our eyeballs will see and writing as many reviews as our fingers will allow us. Take a look at the second wave announcement below and don’t forget to look at the first wave and my predictions of what might play at the fest (I didn’t fare well with the Second Wave). As before, I have included the trailers for all the films, if available, announced in this wave.

As I will be attending my very first Fantastic Fest in but a few weeks, I now feel, more than ever, that it is my duty to present news on the fest (not that I wasn't willing to before). So, today we have for you their second wave of films, which includes Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler as the closing night offering. But since that one is getting a general release very, very soon, more importantly there's the North American premiere of Taxidermia director György Pálfi's much acclaimed absurdest parable Free Fall (reviewed here), new work from Toad Road director Jason Banker in Felt, the world premiere of Chilean actioner Redeemer, as well as the Us premieres of Sono Sion's Tokyo Tribe, Justin Benson & Aaron Moorehead's...

Alamo Drafthouse's Fantastic Fest has added Open Road's "Nightcrawler," starring Jake Gyllenhaal, as the closing night film to its already strong genre lineup in Austin. Veteran Hollywood scribe Dan Gilroy's directorial debut about a freelance writer thrust into La crime journalism will first bow at Toronto before Us-premiering at Fantastic Fest. Open Road opens "Nightcrawler," which has Best Actor potential for Gyllenhaal, in theaters on Halloween. Fantastic Fest has also announced a gala premiere of Summit's Keanu Reeves assassin starrer "John Wick, as well as a second wave of international programming that includes a film called "Necrophilia 3D." Yup. The full list of newly added films is after the jump. Below, watch a skinny, unhinged Gyllenhaal in the trailer for "Nightcrawler."

Yes, there are three major film festivals in September — Venice, Toronto and Telluride — but there’s also a pretty cool one out of Austin that’s a bit more off the beaten path, focused on horror and genre fare, and a little less heavy on Oscar-centric titles. Fantastic Fest 2014 takes place September 18-25, and the organizers have announced their second wave of programming. Thus far, the festival’s big highlight is Kevin Smith’s horror-comedy “Tusk,” but Fantastic Fest has also just added Dan Gilroy’s “Nightcrawler,” the Sundance hit “Blind” directed by Eskil Vogt and the Keanu Reeves’ revenge thriller “John Wick.” Surprisingly, “John Wick” isn’t labeled as a world premiere despite the fact that it isn’t screening at the three aforementioned festivals (at least not to our knowledge, unless it’s going to be a surprise add somewhere, which feels strange and out of place).

Open Road’s Jake Gyllenhaal starrer Nightcrawler will close the 10th annual Fantastic Fest in its U.S. premiere and Keanu Reeves will drop by for a gala screening of Lionsgate’s John Wick, organizers announced today. The rising genre film fest held September 18-25 in Austin, TX will open with the previously announced Tusk from Kevin Smith.
Also unveiled today along with a second wave of programming is a centerpiece bout in the Fantastic Debates, in which filmmakers, critics, and celebs engage in discourse at a podium before taking it to the boxing ring to determine the ultimate winner. This year, BitTorrent’s Chief Content Officer Matt Mason will take on a challenger to duke it out over whether the file sharing platform is a valuable tool or an enabler of piracy.

With so many hard "R" ratings in today's MPAA ratings bulletin it's mildly comical to me that one of them is not Dracula Untold, the Luke Evans starrer that will take a new look at the blood sucking king of all vampires and deliver it in PG-13 fashion. Ugh. As for those hard "R" movies, let's begin with Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer of which he spoke with Collider regarding making a hard "R" rated film saying: The violence you witness is Denzel doing it and we're taking some visual effects and doing some things and you see something happen it's happening in front of you as opposed to cutting away and doing a bunch of tricks. It's in front of you. So it's hard not to make it a hard 'R' if you see a guy get punched and teeth wind up in someone's knuckles, you know what I »

The first full trailer for Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler dropped a month ago, it looked like a dark glimpse into the world of amateur news reporting. There looked to be a satirical bend to Jake Gyllenhaal's over the top performance, something like Network for the 21st century. But, now a second trailer has arrived and makes Nightcrawler look a lot darker than I first thought. The movie still follows Gyllenhaal's character as he strives to break into the world of underground news reporting, but »

Ahead of its Toronto International Film Festival screening next month, Open Road Films has dropped a new trailer for Nightcrawler, the upcoming thriller from writer-director Dan Gilroy, which sees Jake Gyllenhaal leading a cast that also includes Rene Russo (Thor 2: The Dark World), Bill Paxton (Twister) and Riz Ahmed (Four Lions); take a look after the official synopsis…
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, »

Today we have a new trailer for the upcoming "Nightcrawler" thriller, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo. 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 (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 31st. Trailer: »
Despite the somewhat misleading title, Dan Gilroy’s upcoming crime thriller Nightcrawler tells the story of a man whose only special abilities are steadfast ambition, a cool-sounding motto and a certain degree of moral bankruptcy. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, the eager, greasy-haired opportunist who finds himself drawn to the world of freelance crime journalism: namely, the part of that world that involves filming gruesome footage to be peddled to TV news networks.
Gyllenhaal produced Nightcrawler as well as starring in it, and the film seems to be something of a passion project for him. The actor even dropped out of Disney’s musical adaptation Into the Woods in order to star in Gilroy’s film instead. Luckily it’s a decision that seems to have paid off, as the second trailer for Nightcrawler has now arrived and offers ...

One of the most fascinating and bizarre thrillers of the fall, Nightcrawler, continues to pique our interests with its very strange, off-kilter trailers. The teaser, which featured a lot of Jake Gyllenhaal addressing the camera, emphasized the film’s dark comedy. A more recent trailer highlighted its disorienting psychological themes. Now, we have the newest preview for the film, which reveals more about the crime elements of the story. Nevertheless, the different types of marketing are probably suitable for a movie about a man with a very offbeat personality.
Jake Gyllenhaal has been on a roll in the last two years, with acclaimed turns in End of Watch and Prisoners. His role in Denis Villeneuve’s duality drama Enemy was the finest of his career and signalled the arrival of more daring performances from the Oscar-nominated actor. Nightcrawler, which premieres at Tiff (like Prisoners and Enemy did last year), is »

2006 was the year that Jake Gyllenhaal was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar, after his peformance in Brokeback Mountain made the Academy sit up and take notice. But he didn't win that award, and he was never nominated again, despite doing a hell of a job with his role of Detective Loki in Prisoners. 2015 might be the year the Academy gives Gyllenhaal a second nomination. And it also may just be the year he makes the win if Nightcrawler lives up to the promise shown in the second trailer. Yahoo has given us our second look at the Dan Gilroy-directed neo-noir-looking flick, which shows Jake Gyllenhaal as Lou Bloom. Bloom is an unemployed young man, with a hunger to make it, and a go-getter mentality that could have taken him somewhere in decades past. Unfortunately for Lou, the modern economy is full of go-getters. It eats them up, »
