Jake Gyllenhaal: Getting ‘Stronger’ and Better as His Career Goes On

Jake Gyllenhaal: Getting ‘Stronger’ and Better as His Career Goes On
When actors become stars, they can choose one of three paths: play a number of roles that will basically repeat the original success; work in projects that are high-paying but undemanding; or take on bigger challenges, dig deeper into themselves and become better actors.

Luckily for audiences, Jake Gyllenhaal took route No. 3. In the past year, he shone as the TV host in Bong Joon-ho’s “Okja,” conquered Broadway in Stephen Sondheim’s “Sunday in the Park With George” and capped it all with a career-best performance in “Stronger.”

The actor plays Jeff Bauman, who lost his legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings; after that, Bauman struggled physically and emotionally, while dealing with a public that made him an instant hero.

It sounds like a seen-it-before movie, but the film (written by John Pollono and directed by David Gordon Green) is much smarter and full of surprises. Gyllenhaal is raw and honest in a performance that Variety

Latest rumours on The Batman claim it will be a Justice League sequel with or without Ben Affleck

I’m struggling to think of a project which has had as much rumour and speculation surrounding it as Warner Bros. and DC Films’ planned Dark Knight solo movie The Batman.

For months now, it seems a day hasn’t gone by without some report claiming to drop “insider information” on the status of the film, and that stepped up a gear this past week when Ben Affleck revealed that he was yet to sign on for the movie, and looking to “segue out” of the role.

To bring you up to speed, a rumour emerged a few days ago claiming that Reeves has identified Jake Gyllenhaal as a replacement for Ben Affleck, and that he is considering two ideas for his trilogy – one which would serve as a prequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the other as a standalone series of films.

Well, we now have

The Batman Said To Be A Crime Film That Dives Deep Into Batman Mythos

After Wonder Woman, there was a brief period when the Dceu looked to be back on track. Then came the big fat mess of Justice League, which likely marks the final time we’ll see Ben Affleck in the Batsuit. Jake Gyllenhaal is apparently poised to take over the role from him in Matt ReevesThe Batman, which is currently in pre-production, but what would a Gyllenhaal/Reeves Dark Knight pic look like?

After the failure of Justice League, will they jettison the increasingly wobbly Dceu and make it a solo film, or perhaps head back way before Man of Steel and show us the prime of the Dceu Batman? Well, inside sources at Warner Bros. have now told former Latino-Review writer Mario-Francisco Robles that it’ll be neither. Word is that DC are ploughing ahead with their cinematic universe, saying in concrete terms: “The Batman will not be a prequel or reboot.

A Guide to the Serial Killers (and Infamous Murderers) Taking Over Film and TV

From Jack the Ripper to John Wayne Gacy to Aileen Wuornos, the horrific legacies of serial killers have managed to both appall and intrigue, as people attempt to explore and understand the darkest depths of the human psyche. Hollywood has mined this territory for years, with dozens of scripted true-crime movies and TV series exploring the “why” of those who snap.

But why are we so obsessed? Alex Wolff, who stars in the new movie My Friend Dahmer, about the high school years of the notorious mass murderer Jeffrey Dahmer, has a theory. “People are interested in seeing how things happen and maybe finding out what things could be different,” he tells Et. “Like, what is it about him that’s so different from me, or my next-door neighbor who seems a little bit off? That’s why people are interested in seeing the birth of things like this -- for their own comfort, for their own life

Riverdale season 2 episode 4 review: The Town That Dreaded Sundown

Chris Cummins Nov 2, 2017

In which Betty is befriended by the Black Hood, Archie loses his damn ginger mind, and Civil War breaks out in Riverdale...

2.4 The Town That Dreaded Sundown

At the end of tonight's exhilarating episode, Jughead grimly states that "Riverdale would no longer be the town with pep, from now on it would be the town that dreaded sundown." It's a completely melodramatic moment, one that beautifully illustrates how, early in its second season, the series is unafraid to double down on its inherent ridiculousness. It would be far easier for Riverdale to play its world of pixie stick-drug addicts, anachronistic gangs, and nonsensical musical performances with a nod and a wink. But the fact that everything is played so earnestly makes it work so much

The 20 Best Director-Cinematographer Collaborations Working Today

The 20 Best Director-Cinematographer Collaborations Working Today
The gravitational pull that exists between great directors and great cinematographers is natural. Many of the best pairings throughout film history have been project based, with the director or producer picking a cinematographer to achieve a specific look for a particular film. There’s a difference between providing a talented cinematographer with the perfect platform to apply their skills and a director-cinematographer collaboration that elevates the work of both artists, regardless of material.

This list is less about identifying the best looking films of the era – although many are here – and more about celebrating collaborations that have allowed many of the best filmmakers working today to fully express themselves on the big screen.

Alien 3 to Mindhunter: David Fincher’s outsider protagonists

Ryan Lambie Nov 3, 2017

Netflix's Mindhunter is the latest example of the unique, outsider characters in the work of David Fincher...

When FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) sits down with convicted serial killer Edmund Kemper (Cameron Britton) in the Netflix series Mindhunter, he’s both terrified and fascinated. Kemper, serving multiple life sentences for a spate of brutal kidnappings and murders - including his own mother - could offer a valuable insight into a criminal mindset that was barely understood in the late 1970s. Ford hopes to use a series of interviews with Kemper, and convicts like him, to build up a psychological profile which could be used to help track down other serial murderers; it soon becomes apparent, however, that Ford’s fascination with Kemper runs beyond the strictly professional.

David Fincher Has Some Criticism for the McU

  • Cinelinx
Oscar winning director David Fincher has some criticisms for Marvel Studios and the McU regarding their style of filmmaking. He feels that the McU should adopt a new style that is “thoughtful, adult, interesting, complex, and challenging”

The McU superhero films are no doubt popular, but they have their detractors. One of those is BAFTA and Academy Award nominee David Fincher (Se7en, Panic Room, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Netowrk, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl). While speaking about his new Netflix series Mindhunter in a conversation posted by Yellow King Film Boy, Fincher talks about what he feels are limitations in the McU approach.

“Look, there’s a very large talent pool of people who are--don’t feel there’s much for them in terms of sustenance working for Marvel.” He suggests Marvel should use a more Netflix-style approach, (using his new show

2.3 The Watcher In The Woods

Bottom line: This was an excellent episode that had character development aplenty and some genuinely unsettling moments.

Let's get my only issue with the instalment out of the way up-front: I was not a fan of how quickly the attack on Moose and Midge was rolled back. Last week's ending was shocking, and a call to arms that told viewers that anything could, and probably would, happen on this show. So for Moose and Midge to be as unscathed as they are given how dire things looked last week feels like a cop-out.

Why Mindhunter Is One of Netflix’s Greatest Ever Shows

Samuel Brace on Netflix’s Mindhunter

“How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”

This is the central question behind Netflix’s latest original drama Mindhunter, a series based on real life events and characters, a series that delves into the formation of the FBI’s behavioural sciences unit. Mindhunter has an awful lot going for it, and what has been achieved here is nothing short of masterful. Forget best Netflix show of 2017, Mindhunter is up there with the streaming services greatest ever efforts period.

Melding the best elements of two television formats, procedural and serial, Mindhunter (based on true events) follows two FBI agents who hope to understand what motivates humanity’s worst to do exactly what they do. This show is a study in the fragile nature of the human mind, and the results are outstanding.

So, what’s so good about it?

Movie Review: The Snowman

From Silence of the Lambs (1991), to Zodiac (2007), to Se7en (1995), detective thrillers can prove to be a great escape for the moviegoing audience. It puts us in the shoes of a profession we’ll probably never be in and most of the time it asks us to participate in actively solving the mystery at hand. You usually receive the clues at the same time the characters do and it can be endlessly engaging to help solve the puzzle. When the genre works, it works well. When it doesn’t, you get movies like The Snowman. The intentions might have been to produce a film in the same vein as the previously mentioned thrillers, but The Snowman completely misses the mark. With a plot that is scattered, a terribly miscast group of actors, and shaky direction, The Snowman is a slow-burn that eventually melts from its own stupidity.

David Fincher Recalls Passing Up The Chance To Direct A Star Wars Sequel

David Fincher is not known for operating within Hollywood’s franchises – remember, Alien 3 almost forced the director into an early retirement. But it turns out Fincher was almost drawn to the biggest franchise of the lot.

While appearing on a recent instalment of the Empire Podcast (via Collider), the esteemed filmmaker recalled the moment when he passed up the chance to direct a Star Wars sequel for Lucasfilm. Fincher stopped short of mentioning any specifics – was it The Last Jedi, for instance? Or one of the studio’s forthcoming anthology pics? – only that he “talked” with producer Kathleen Kennedy about what he considers to be a “plum assignment.”

But while the thought of signing on for Lucasfilm’s faraway galaxy is tempting, David Fincher pointed to the heightened expectations that come hand-in-hand with a modern blockbuster. And, well, let’s just say Star Wars is on another level in that respect.
