4 February 2016 12:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox Searchlight Pictures is now getting ready for the April 8 release, and today we have the second trailer with new footage from this drama, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts and Chris Cooper.

Watch Jake Gyllenhaal Take Apart His Life in This Demolition Trailer

4 February 2016 11:06 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jake Gyllenhaal is definitely an actor with an eye for interesting roles. More recently, he's done wonders with films like EnemyPrisoners, Nightcrawler, and he even had a bit of a stand out performance in the movie Everest. Given his talent and tendency to pick out spectacular roles, it was a given that he'd end up working with Jean-Marc Valée, the man who's directed such great films as Dallas Buyers Clubs and Wild, and he's done just that with the film Demolition, which follows Jake Gyllenhaal's character following the death of his wife.

This picture may seem vaguely familiar, because we got a trailer for it about four months back, which was around the same time the film opened the Toronto International Film Festival. Well now we got a new trailer for the picture's impending release to the public.

Check it out below!

Demolition's official synopsis is as »

New Demolition Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal Is Destroying His Life in Order to Put It All Back Together

4 February 2016 10:49 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Demolition, directed by Dallas Buyers Club and Wild's Jean-Marc Vallée, was supposed to be the movie that got Jake Gyllenhaal over the Oscar hump — until Fox Searchlight decided to release it in April instead of this fall. But the film was still the opening-night selection at last year's Toronto International Film Festival. The indie drama stars Gyllenhaal as an investment banker picking up the pieces (literally) after the death of his wife. As it turns out, the film looks much sunnier than Southpaw, the other movie where Jake Gyllenhaal loses his wife in a tragic accident. As Oscar Wilde once said, to lose one of Jake Gyllenhaal's onscreen wives is a tragedy; to lose two of Jake Gyllenhaal's onscreen wives looks likes carelessness. We see a little more of Naomi Watts, the customer service agent who helps pull Gyllenhaal out of a slump in the newest trailer »

New Trailer for Jean-Marc Vallée's 'Demolition' with Jake Gyllenhaal

4 February 2016 10:20 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What are we doing, again?" "We're taking apart my marriage." Fox Searchlight has debuted a new trailer for Jean-Marc Vallée's Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a depressed man struggling to put his life together after his wife dies in a car accident. This film premiered at Tiff last year (read Marco's review) and has been awaiting release until April this year. Aside from Gyllenhaal, the cast includes Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper, Heather Lind and Judah Lewis. With all the footage from this trailer, and the footage from the first trailer last year, I feel like I've seen pretty much most of the movie and I'm not sure what else there is to this. In all honesty, it looks good but not great, with only so much to offer. Give it a watch below.

Jake Gyllenhaal disassembles his life in Exclusive first poster for Demolition

4 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jake Gyllenhaal struggles through the loss of his wife by destructing all other aspects of his life in Jean-Marc Vallee’s Demolition.

In this exclusive new poster, the themes of the film are played upon as Davis Mitchell (Gyllenhaal) battles his own sense of self through this tragic event. His way of coping involves writing letters to vending machine companies and literally breaking down and re-building his own life.

The film, which opened to rave reviews when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, offers a very blunt metaphor about love and loss. Vallee, who is the praised director of films including Dallas Buyers Club andWild, truly finesses his vision with Demolition. It’s a film that brings together themes from many of his previous projects, with another magnificent leading performance from Gyllenhaal.

Also starring Naomi Watts and Chris CooperDemolition is an uplifting portrait of grief, and how »

4 February 2016 9:49 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We don’t blame you if you also forgot about DemolitionJean-Marc Vallée‘s latest drama. It opened Toronto International Film Festival to a fairly tepid response last fall and instead of sneaking it in during awards season, Fox Searchlight waited until this spring to release the Jake Gyllenhaal-led feature.

Following an investment banker who is dealing with the sudden, tragic death of his wife, a new trailer has been let loose to remind audiences it indeed exists and will be hitting theaters in a few months. Considering the acting talent involved, we’re still curious about this one, but we’re not expecting too much. Also starring Naomi Watts and Chris Cooper, one can see the new trailer below.

French Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée has been around. He directed Emily Blunt in “The Young Victoria" and got good notices with “Cafe De Flore,” but all it took was “Dallas Buyers Club” to score several Oscar nominations and then win two acting Academy Awards, and then Vallée soon found himself to be one of the most in demand directors working today. “Wild” with Reese Witherspoon followed, and right up on its heels is “Demolition,” the filmmaker’s collaboration with Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts and more.

The 'Twin Peaks' cast is insane: 9 actors you may not have known are starring in the Showtime revival

2 February 2016 6:19 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Naomi Watts, one-half of David Lynch's Betty-and-Veronica duo in Mulholland Drive, will play a recurring role on the director's upcoming Twin Peaks revival -- not a surprise considering the 2001 film served as the actress's big Hollywood breakthrough. What is a surprise is the other name mentioned in the same Deadline casting story: famously "difficult" '90s star Tom Sizemore, who is bound and determined to make this comeback thing happen. Could this be Tom's Dennis Hopper-in-Blue-Velvet moment? We trust that Lynch will find something appropriately weird to do with him.  As it turns out, lots of interesting Twin Peaks casting stories have escaped my attention over the last several months, and I'm betting the same goes for many of you. With that in mind, here are seven more new faces to Lynch and Frost's twisted, beautiful world that you may not have known about. (Note: the only actor »

Watts occurring in ‘Twin Peaks’

2 February 2016 2:48 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As an avid movie journalist you tend to get excited by certain pieces of news. But every so often a titbit comes along that blows your head off, and for me one of those moments has just landed, as Deadline reveals Naomi Watts has signed up for Twin Peaks.

David Lynch, the director who puts the key into wacky, has teamed up with former collaborator Mark Frost to get the sinister soap back on the road. Details of Watts’ character are under wraps and producers Showtime have as ever remained tight-lipped.

Cast news has been the source of heavy speculation. Of the returning thesps, Kyle MacLachlan is definitely in, with all other names up for debate. Michael Horse, who appears in the teaser trailer, mentioned that Kimmy Robertson and Harry Goaz were back as lovestruck idiots Lucy and Andy, also unconfirmed. Even Lynch is rumoured to be reviving his hearing-impaired FBI Chief Gordon Cole. »
