"I want something people can't turn away from." In this age of sensationalized news, it's the perfect time for this twisted thriller Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a desperate freelance crime journalist in Los Angeles willing to do anything to get a good story. However, when some of his shady activities to craft the best feature for a hungry network executive (Rene Russo) get him in trouble with the law, he just might end up being the next juicy headline himself. This looks pretty damn intense and even gruesome, showcasing another fantastic performance from Gyllenhaal, which is becoming a regular thing. Watch now! Here's the new trailer for Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler, originally from Yahoo: Nightcrawler is written and directed by Dan Gilroy) writer of Two for the Money, Real Steel and The Bourne Legacy) making his feature directing debut.

We’ve met Jake Gyllenhaal’s focused-to-the-point-of-creepy wannabe crime reporter once already in the first trailer for Nightcrawler. Here comes a new promo, one that just adds to the scuzzy La crime beat feel.With Real Steel and The Bourne Legacy writer Dan Gilroy turning director for this one, Gyllenhaal is Lou Bloom, a young man in desperate need of employment. After several rejections, he stumbles upon the fast-paced world of Los Angeles freelance crime journalism.Setting himself up as an independent contractor, he’s soon cranking up the police scanner and speeding around the seedy streets to beat the cops and other reporters to crime scenes. After a few lucky breaks, he catches the eye of TV newsgathering veteran Nina (Rene Russo), who spots a potential new source of content. But soon Lou is blurring the line between reporting the story and becoming it…With Bill Paxton, Riz Ahmed, »
Those who are naughty are going to get something a lot worse than coal in Michael Dougherty’s Krampus, while a Special Ops team engages supernatural forces in Spectral. This pagan demon and ghostly threat will officially see the big screen, as Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have just announced the release dates for both films.
We reported in May that Legendary Pictures has signed Michael Dougherty to co-write and direct Krampus, a Christmas horror comedy co-written by Todd Casey and Zach Shields: “Based on an ancient legend about a pagan demon who punishes the wicked, Krampus is similar in style to Dougherty’s cult hit Trick R’ Treat.”
This is the second Krampus-based Christmas horror movie to begin development as of late, »

"Their greatest adventure... has just begun!" Really? 20th Century Fox has debuted the first full-length teaser trailer for Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third movie in the adventure-comedy franchise Night at the Museum, which started at the Museum of Natural History some eight years ago. Ben Stiller returns along with the eclectic cast of actors being goofy and playing historical figures, including Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt, Owen Wilson as Jedediah, Rami Malek as Ahkmenrah, Mizuo Peck as Sacajawea, Dan Stevens as Sir Lancelot, plus Ben Kingsley, Rebel Wilson and Ricky Gervais. I'm not really sure this looks any good anymore, but if you're still interested fire it up. First teaser trailer for Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, in HD via Apple: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, »

In what will likely be the final adventure in this family friendly franchise, Ben Stiller is back in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and the first photos from the film have arrived. We get to see Robin Williams back as Teddy Roosevelt, and also Dan Stevens joining the film as Lancelot (but no sign of Rebel Wilson yet). This time the action moves across the pond in London's British Museum. This time the Egyptian Golden Tablet of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah, which makes the museum exhibits come to life at night, is corroding, and something must be done to save it. This will probably be more of the same, but whatever. Here's the first photos from Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from USA Today: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel, »

The gang’s all here for the latest installment in the ever-popular X-Men franchise, the time-tripping action adventure science fiction-flavored film X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Featuring a massive collaboration of actors including Hugh Jackman (Real Steel), Michael Fassbender (Jane Eyre), James McAvoy (Trance) and Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) and the return of director Bryan Singer (who helmed the first two X-Men films), the movie finds the planet on the brink of destruction, and the only way to prevent it is to travel back into the past. So, the super-heroic mutant characters from the original X-Men trilogy must join forces with their younger selves in an epic battle to alter the past and, »
Featured in the upcoming Comic-Con issue of Entertainment Weekly are a few new stills from this year’s highly anticipated new entry in Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth opus, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

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 City Shines Brightest At Night... Whoa, this is definitely must watch! Open Road Films has debuted the first official teaser trailer to follow-up that viral teaser for Nightcrawler, a new indie drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a young man who "stumbles" upon the underground world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. This trailer builds to a riveting crescendo with some gruesome footage and excellent shots throughout. Bill Paxton and Rene Russo appear briefly, but it's all about Gyllenhaal this time, who looks like he's still at the top of his game. Looking forward to catching this in the fall movie season. Give it a look. Here's the first full teaser trailer for Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler, uploaded directly to YouTube: The only brief synopsis currently available says: A young man stumbles upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism.

Talking to SlashFilm recently, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Lost star Evangeline Lilly was asked whether she could comment on the constant reports that she'll be playing The Wasp in Edgar Wright's Peyton Reed's Ant-Man. Her response wasn't what many of us wanted to hear though! "No, I can’t," she bluntly replied. "I don’t know anything about those rumors." The trades recently confirmed that Lilly Is in the movie, so perhaps this denial has something to do with the fact that the Ant-Man cast will all be brought on stage at Comic-Con this weekend. That's a theory the site put to her, and when the Real Steel actress was asked whether she has more planned than just panels for The Hobbit and The Squickerwonkers, she said: "I’m an actress, but I’m not stupid. I can’t answer that question." However, for someone in the movie, »
This year, Evangeline Lilly is the defacto queen of San Diego Comic-Con. Not only will the actress be on hand to promote the final Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, she may be there for Marvel Studio’s Ant-Man, plus she’s finally fulfilling a lifelong dream. Lilly has always wanted to be a writer […]

Ladies and gents, if you ever wanted Jake Gyllenhaal talking directly to you – this is your chance to listen and possibly give him a job!
I might be teasing a little but in this first look at Nightcrawler, Mr Gyllenhaal to out to convince that he’s the right man for the role. We don’t know that much about him currently, bar the fact it’s been uploaded on his character’s YouTube channel, which is in the name of Dan Bloom. The film itself is the directorial debut for Dan Gilroy, a man who’s also worked on the screenplays for The Bourne Legacy, Real Steel, Two For The Money and The Fall.
All we really know so far, is this:

Dan Gilroy, writer of The Bourne Legacy and Real Steel as well as brother to Tony Gilroy, is making his directorial debut with Nightcrawler, a crime drama, which he also wrote, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a driven young man who finds a home in the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. Gyllenhaal reportedly lost 20 pounds for the role. In an interesting marketing move, Open Road Films has gone and opened a YouTube account under Gyllenhaal's character's name, Louis Bloom, as well as submit a "job wanted" listing on Craigslist, all pointing to the first viral trailer for the film that would appear to at least feature some footage from the film, but it's unclear just how much may be from the film and how much was shot specifically for this trailer. It's widely expected Nightcrawler will make an appearance at at least one, if not several of »

In an unusual marketing move, the first footage from Dan Gilroy's "Nightcrawler" has arrived online in the form of a montage of Jake Gyllenhaal seemingly applying for several jobs and getting upset about it.
There's no credits, no titles, just a clip which was uploaded to an unspecific YouTube account a few days ago and is only now scoring some traction. Gyllenhaal lost a considerable amount of weight to play Lou Bloom, a hungry young freelance journalist who dives head-first into the world of L.A. crime.
Gilroy, who penned films such as "Two for the Money," "The Bourne Legacy," "The Fall" and "Real Steel," makes his directorial debut on the movie which also stars Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed. The film is likely to premiere on the Fall film circuit.

A little different from his recent efforts like The Night at the Museum series, Real Steel, and Date Night, director Shawn Levy is mixing a bit of drama with his comedy with This Is Where I Leave You. Starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, and Jane Fonda, it tells the story of a dysfunctional family forced together when their father dies. Bringing together some very talented actors, there is a lot to like about this trailer, especially watching the cast play off each other. Check it out below. Released: 12th September (Irl/U.K.) / 19th September (U.S.) »

Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
The dramatic comedy is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development »

Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) has come aboard to direct Sylvester Stallone in Scarpa. Written by Nicholas Pileggi (GoodFellas, Casino), the film will center on the story of real-life hitman Gregory Scarpa (Stallone), a man who murdered for the mob, suspected in the murders of his own biological family, then turned FBI informant. Avi Lerner's Millennium Films is producing with the hope of beginning production early 2015. Deadline Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) have apparently come provide on set production rewrites to the Ant-Man script on an "as needed" basis following Adam McKay's most recent draft. Filming begins next month in Atlanta, Georgia. Latino Review Even though I thought this had already been confirmed as I've had the spin-off from James Wan's The Conjuring, Annabelle in my database as an October 3 release for some time, apparently yesterday it was made official. So, do with that what you will. »

Though her last big screen role was in 2011′s Hugo, Emily Mortimer has been keeping plenty busy on the small screen, starring on two HBO series, The Newsroom and Doll & Em, the latter of which she created and wrote. Now, we’re hearing that the talented actress will be making her way back to the big screen with a starring role in Legendary’s upcoming supernatural military thriller, Spectral.
Mortimer is set to star as a CIA mission leader in the movie, which is described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down and focuses on “a special-ops team that fights supernatural beings that have taken over a European city.” Dale, known for supporting roles in The Grey, Iron Man 3 and World War Z, boarded the project a few months back as a researcher.
It was previously reported that Spectral would find the special-ops team combatting a threat to New York City, »
