Nightcrawler – The Review

6 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

His name may be Lou Bloom but a more accurate name for Jake Gyllenhaal’s character would be the title of Dan Gilroy’s debut feature film. Lou is a creature of the night – like a wolf scrounging for scraps in order to survive another day. When Lou discovers the seedy world of late-night accident and crime-reporting he finally feels his skills are being better utilized. By imitating fellow reporter Joe (Bill Paxton) and following the guidance of his new boss Nina (Rene Russo), Lou’s “business” begins to take-off. Soon he is hiring an assistant (Riz Ahmed) for his late night reporting and rising to the top above his competition. It isn’t until a deadly murder that he catches on tape that places his life and everyone around him in jeopardy.

With a shit-eating grin, greasy hair, and bulging eyes that showcase the character’s eagerness for fame and fortune, »

Nightcrawler Review

13 hours ago | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

A flighty but spectacular walk on the mean streets of the new media.Having written the screenplay for “The Bourne Legacy” and other hits, Dan Gilroy apparently decided to take the plunge and try his hand at directing. His debut with “Nightcrawler” may be one of the most spectacularly successful first efforts seen for some time. This is helped, in large measure, by the riveting performance of Jake Gyllenhaal as nebbish video news reporter Louis Bloom. Casting is critical to the success of any picture. Whether it is just coincidence that Bloom’s character fits Gyllenhaal like a glove, or whether it […] »

‘Nightcrawler’, ‘Ouija’ To Pick Over Slim Halloween Pickings: Box Office Preview

13 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Halloween is typically a frightful time for the box office, but with it landing on a Friday, the big studios are avoiding the weekend like a black cat. That will leave Open Road’s newcomer Nightcrawler and Universal’s Ouija in its second frame to pick over the remains left by trick-or-treating parents and costume-clad weekend partiers.

Likely to lead the flimsy Halloween parade is Nightcrawler, Jake Gyllenhaal’s indie thriller about a crime videographer with a questionable moral compass investigating a Los Angeles underworld without one. Produced and financed by Bold Films for about $8.5M, the R-rated thriller will open on 2,766 screens and should stash $12M to $14M. The movie, which enticed Gyllenhaal and co-star Bill Paxton to train with real freelance video journalists, also stars Rene Russo and Riz Ahmed. The movie, which opens at 7 Pm Thursday in some markets, has accounted for 71% of Fandango’s pre-sales this weekend. »

Fantastic Fest 2014: Interview with Nightcrawler Director Dan Gilroy

29 October 2014 10:50 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

While I was covering Fantastic Fest in Austin, I was able to sit down with the writer and director of Nightcrawler, Dan Gilroy. Even though he worked on films like Real Steel, The Fall, and The Bourne Legacy, this is his directorial debut. You can read my full review of the film Here. Below you can find my interview with Dan Gilroy where he goes into how he views La, what some of the important themes in the movie are, and what he thinks of sex in movies.

 

The idea of entrepreneurship and “bad business” is a central theme in Nightcrawler. Do you see the film as a movie with a message and if so did the message change or evolve as you developed the script?

I wrote the film to be engaging and entertaining but it does have a theme and it does have messages. I think, in a meta sense, »

‘Nightcrawler’ Review: Pete Hammond On Jake Gyllenhaal’s Local News Creep

29 October 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo star in ‘Nightcrawler,’ about an unscrupulous videographer trolling the streets of Los Angeles for bloody crime-scene footage he can sell to a local TV news operation. It also stars Bill Paxton, James Huang and a raft of current and former Los Angeles TV news anchors and reporters, including Kent Shocknek, Pat Harvey and Sharon Tay.

Watch my video review above for more about the film, but know that I think it features Gyllenhaal’s best performance maybe ever, and a fine one by Russo as well.

The film is written and directed by Dan Gilroy, and produced by Gyllenhaal, Tony Gilroy, Jennifer Fox, David Lancaster and Michael Litvak. Open Road Films is handling distribution in the U.S. Yes, the project is a family affair, featuring work by brothers Dan, Tony (The Bourne Legacy, Michael Clayton) and editor John (Pacific Rim, Warrior) Gilroy.

Interview: ‘Nightcrawler’ Director Dan Gilroy Talks Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Elswit & Sociopaths

29 October 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Writer and director Dan Gilroy speaks in a manner in which ideas, facts and concepts come tumbling out, his train of thought speeding fast but never in danger of going off the track. The credited screenwriter on films like “The Bourne Legacy,” the long-forgotten “Freejack,” the family-friendly heroics of “Real Steel” and the grim fairy tale “The Fall,” Gilroy makes his directorial debut with “Nightcrawler.” Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, the film depicts the rise and fall of Lou Bloom, a self-motivated striver who bootstraps into a freelance job filming the car crashes and crime scenes of L.A. at night for the local news channels that thrive on blood and bad news (our review).  Gilroy spoke with The Playlist about what cinematographer Robert Elswit (“There Will Be Blood,” “Boogie Nights”) brought to the film, the economic realities behind the Lou Bloom character, Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance and the film's depiction of the dark dream of L. »

Film Review: 'Nightcrawler'

29 October 2014 10:56 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆The inaugural directorial effort of The Bourne Legacy (2012) screenwriter Dan Gilroy, Nightcrawler (2014) is a nocturnal exploration of media sensationalism and the individualistic entrepreneurialism that is so often perceived as an attainable escape route from social inequality. Boasting a noteworthy performance from Jake Gyllenhaal, Gilroy's debut finds itself lost in an inescapable maze of sound and rhythm, colours and lights, as it attempts to navigate the fine line between taste and morals. The American actor stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate to carve out a professional niche for himself in today's incredibly competitive world.

Asking Stupid Questions Made Jake Gyllenhaal a Better Actor

29 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last summer Jake Gyllenhaal dropped out of Into the Woods to film Dan Gilroy‘s Nightcrawler. When the two production schedules clashed, the actor had to ask himself: should I make some bank off the huge Disney musical or take a pay cut to star in the directorial debut of the guy who wrote The Fall and The Bourne Legacy? Thankfully, Gyllenhaal didn’t base his decision on how many zeroes his check would have had. That’s not to imply Into the Woods is a project without artistic merit, but how frequently does a character as complex as Lou Bloom come along? It’s a question with an obvious answer, but a potentially moronic question is apropos for a discussion with Gyllenhaal, an actor who’s more than willing to ask questions others might deem stupid. Bloom features the DNA of Travis Bickle and Rupert Pupkin, but he’s his own scrappy animal. The »

'Nightcrawler' Red Band Trailer Starring Jake Gyllenhaal

28 October 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ahead of its nationwide release in theaters this weekend, Open Road Films has debuted a new red band trailer for Nightcrawler, which the critics are describing as "f---ing amazeballs." Be warned, there is plenty of R-rated language and bloody footage in this trailer, so watch at your own risk.

Set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles, the pulse-pounding thriller Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhaal 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, ceaseless search for footage, »

New Red Band Trailer For Nightcrawler

27 October 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Movie trailers are a double-edged sword. On the one hand, they are a necessary evil, required to market a project, but rarely able to capture the reality of the material they are previewing. On the other hand, with the right editor, a movie trailer can condense the very essence of a film, while withholding just enough to compel an audience to purchase a ticket for the whole thing. Which camp does the new red band trailer for Nightcrawler fall into? I hope it’s the second – but we won’t find out until October 31st.

Nightcrawler is the directorial debut of writer Dan Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy), and here, he is directing his own material. Characterized as a crime thriller, it stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Louis Bloom – an ambitious and driven man who falls into the underground world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. As he descends into a cycle of accidents, »

‘Nightcrawler’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal Cranks Up UK Viral Campaign

26 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Out among the usual thrillers being release, there’s always one that turns up unexpectedly to the party and blows the opposition away. Out on 31st October, Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler is looking very special indeed and if what we hear is everything to go by, Jake Gyllenhaal is back with another inspirational turn in the lead role.

Gilroy hasn’t a huge case of work yet, but The Fall (2006) remains a seminal piece of cinema that is still miles ahead of other works at that time, and even probably now. He was also behind the story for Reel Steel and wrote the screenplay for The Bourne Legacy, so he’s got a good idea of top notch action.

In Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal stars as Louis Bloom, a young man who stumbles upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism and let’s say, he really gets into the part. »

Watch: A Twisted Jake Gyllenhaal Crosses The Line In Wicked Red Band Trailer For ‘Nightcrawler’

24 October 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Not to bring things back to Oscar, perhaps a lowest common denominator form of conversation for movies, but it would be some kind of shame if Jake Gyllenhaal doesn’t get a well-deserved nomination for “Nightcrawler” because he’s all kinds of wicked and twisted worthy. Some pundits are questioning whether that’ll happen or not, but I suppose that’s someone else’s concern at the end of the day. Because ultimately, “Nightcrawler” is a deliriously manic ride that everyone involved should be proud of. Written and directed by veteran screenwriter Dan Gilroy, filmmaker Tony Gilroy’s brother and co-writer on “The Bourne Legacy” among many other projects, “Nightcrawler” is a scathing and savage tour de force drama that comments on media ethics, the bloodsporting of ruthless media, and a growing economic disparity that is cleaving culture. It’s also a dark and funny character study of an obsessive »

Chad Stahelski and David Leitch Talk John Wick, the Changing Color Palette of the Film, the Action Set Pieces, the Keanu Reeves-Led John Rain TV Series, and More

24 October 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now playing in theaters is John Wick.  As I've said again and again...I loved this movie.  In the film, Keanu Reeves stars as an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.  Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have crafted a fantastic action movie that’s absolutely worth your time and money.  While you might not know their names, you’ve definitely seen their awesome work in films like Speed RacerThe Bourne LegacyThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and tons of others.  On some of what I just mentioned they did the stunts, and on some they directed second unit (which means they directed a lot of the action).  In addition to the films I just mentioned, they run 87eleven, which is the premiere action design team in Hollywood.  When an actor needs to be trained for an action role, »

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »
