‘Stronger’: Jake Gyllenhaal’s Moving Performance as a Bombing Victim Could Finally Mean an Oscar

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just as Oscar voters rewarded Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, and many others for roles that demanded body-shifting training or weight change, they also lean into performers who limit their mobility or twist themselves under duress. Perhaps the most infamous example is Daniel Day Lewis’s shoot-long stint in a wheelchair as cerebral palsy victim Christy Brown in “My Left Foot,” which earned Lewis his first Oscar and cost him two broken ribs.

Eddie Redmayne could barely articulate his dialogue as Als survivor Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything,” and took home the 2015 Oscar. Mental hardship counts, too: Tom Hanks won as a mentally disabled hero in “Forrest Gump” and Julianne Moore won as an early-onset Alzheimer’s victim in “Still Alice.”

Now, joining a rather weak Best Actor field so far, here’s Jake Gyllenhaal as Jeff Bauman, the 2013 Boston marathon survivor »

Daniel Craig Wants Blade Runner 2049 Director for James Bond 25

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Perhaps we won't know who is going to direct James Bond 25 until it finds a proper home with a distributor, as Sony and Warner Bros. continue to fight for the rights, alongside Amazon and Apple, with plenty of other studios vying for the option to own a piece of 007. But now we know who Daniel Craig wants. And it's none other than Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve.

Denis Villeneuve is at the top of Daniel Craig's personal wish list, according to Daily Mail. The sequel is in the very early days of pre-production, and as far as everyone knows, the screenplay isn't even locked in at this stage. The movie will be the fifth and final time that Craig returns as 007. So whoever takes the helm, you can expected it to be someone special.

There have been a number of unsubstantiated rumors floating around about James Bond 25. »

Daniel Craig Reportedly Wants Denis Villeneuve To Direct Next James Bond

22 September 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Denis Villeneuve‘s career thus far has been marked by a desire to pursue original storytelling. From his breakthrough, Oscar-nominated “Incendies,” the filmmaker has climbed his way up the ladder, taking on great scripts, and turning out unique, intelligent, and stylish films like “Prisoners,” “Enemy,” “Sicario,” and “Arrival.” But for the first time in his nearly three-decade career, Villeneuve is being lured by blockbusters.

21 September 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Blade Runner 2049” is gearing up for release on October 6, and with it comes 35 years of expectations and anticipation from die-hard fans of Ridley Scott’s iconic original. The film’s marketing has done a solid job at preserving spoilers and selling the movie’s jaw-dropping visuals, so all that’s left is for audiences to show up and be amazed at whatever Denis Villeneuve has in store.

The director has assembled an enviable cast and crew, which combines franchise stalwarts and newcomers alike. If Villeneuve can stay true to the original atmosphere while crafting a unique adventure, he should have no problem making “Blade Runner 2049” just as much of a sci-fi classic for this generation as “Blade Runner” was for the last.

Gorgeous New Character Posters For Blade Runner 2049 Surface

15 September 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How on earth do you follow a film as iconic and generally amazing as Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner? We’re about to find out, as Denis Villeneuve’s hotly anticipated sequel, Blade Runner 2049 is now just under a month away from release.

After a series of moody and beautiful trailers that give every impression that Villeneuve has done what some said was impossible, expectations are through the roof. Now adding a little more fuel to the fire are these new character posters that give us a detailed look at our cast of characters.

Seen in the gallery below, you’ll probably agree that they’re hardly the most inspiring one-sheets in history, especially considering the visual delights we see in the trailers. However, given that the design brief was presumably to produce a series of posters explaining to audiences who’s who in the movie, I guess you »

Will Blade Runner 2049 Be a Bigger Bomb Than Alien: Covenant?

15 September 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Do modern audiences care about Blade Runner 2049? Or do millennials, who make up a majority of the box office, consider it a boring relic from a bygone era? That's tough to discern in today's constantly changing market place. With pop culture shifting faster than it ever has before, it's hard to discern where the movie will eventually land with audiences. Right now, it's targeting a $40 million opening weekend. Some are calling that strong, but it's not much more than Alien: Covenant made on its dismal opening weekend, pulling in $36 million.

It may be hard to remember now, but before Alien: Covenant opened, there was a real excitement for the movie. Fans and critics alike wanted to see what Ridley Scott would do when he Really returned to the world of Alien after the somewhat disappointing Prometheus. It was supposed to be the true Alien prequel. Then the first critics saw it, »

Blade Runner 2049 Targets Strong $40M Box Office Debut

14 September 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been 35 years in the making, but things are looking good for Blade Runner 2049. This represents one of the longest gaps in history between sequels, which also makes it a risky one. Early indication is that the risk is going to pay off, as the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic Blade Runner is set to have a solid opening weekend at the box office.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blade Runner 2049 is currently tracking for a debut of $40 million or more when it arrives in theaters on October 6. The original Blade Runner has gone on to become one of the most respected sci-fi movies in the history of cinema, but it was a complete bomb at the time of its release. Blade Runner only made $32 million in total during its run at the box office in 1982, so Blade Runner 2049 will have already outgrossed its predecessor within its first weekend. »

‘Arrival’ Composer Jóhann Jóhannsson Wrote An Unused Score For Darren Aronofsky ‘mother!’

13 September 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s possible that Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson has had better years than 2017. Already well-known in the classical music world, Johannsson’s rise in film has been pretty meteoric: beginning with his tremendous score for “Prisoners” in 2013, he’s become one of the most in-demand composers around, winning Oscar nominations for his work on “The Theory Of Everything” and “Sicario,” and picking up a ton of praise for his work on last year’s “Arrival” too.

Composer Jóhann Jóhannsson Confirmed To Be Off ‘Blade Runner 2049’

12 September 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When it was announced that Denis Villeneuve would direct “Blade Runner 2049,” the sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi landmark, it was pretty exciting. In part, of course, because Villeneuve’s long since proven himself to be a hugely talented filmmaker with films like “Prisoners,” “Enemy,” “Sicario” and “Arrival.” But part of the appeal was the idea that Villeneuve would be bringing along some of his key collaborators to help realize his take on the cyberpunk world of the original.

New ‘Blade Runner 2049′ Clip Finds Ryan Gosling Searching for Clues

10 September 2017 10:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In the run-up to the Fall/Winter season at the movies, no other big-studio production has more promise than Blade Runner 2049. That the movie is headlined by Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford eases the fact that Jared Leto plays a major role but the real draw as of this moment is Denis Villeneuve's direction and visionary style. [caption id="attachment_657285" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Warner Bros.[/caption] After Arrival, one of 2016's biggest sleeper hits, Villeneuve gained a certain level of prowess that evaded him with 2015's Sicario and 2013's Prisoners, … »

Oscars: Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain Arrive in Very Different Biopics

9 September 2017 8:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut “Molly’s Game” and David Gordon Green’s emotional drama “Stronger” landed at the Toronto Film Festival Friday, providing showcase true-life roles for Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal, respectively. The two stars, who are incidentally set to partner on screen together in Stephen Gaghan’s Tom Clancy adaptation “The Division,” could dive headlong into very different lead actor and actress Oscar races this year.

It’s been more than a decade since Gyllenhaal roped in a supporting actor nomination for his performance opposite Heath Ledger in Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain.” In the years since, he stumbled just enough (2010’s “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”) to recalibrate and maintain a true heading on roles that excite and challenge him. Indeed, that recalibration has become the actor’s ongoing narrative, as performances in films like “End of Watch,” “Prisoners,” “Enemy,” “Nightcrawler,” “Southpaw” and “Demolition,” among others, »

Charlie Hunnam & Rami Malek Remake Steve McQueen & Dustin Hoffman In ‘Papillon’ [Tiff Review]

No, it’s not. That’s the answer to the obvious question that will be asked about whether or not Michael Noer’s remake of Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman’s classic “Papillon” is as good as the original. It’s not even close. In fact, it’s hard not to be offended at nearly every decision made in this version, in which screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski (“Prisoners”), working from the credited screenplay by Dalton Trumbo and Lorenzo Semple Jr.

Inside Jake Gyllenhaal’s Nine Stories, a Production Company for Edgy Indies

6 September 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jake Gyllenhaal has become a fixture at the Toronto International Film Festival. Over the last four years, the actor has appeared there with a series of chameleonlike performances in “Nocturnal Animals,” “Demolition,” “Nightcrawler” and “Prisoners.” This week, he heads back to Canada with “Stronger,” the story of real-life Boston Marathon survivor Jeff Bauman.

Stronger” is a harrowing showcase for Gyllenhaal, playing a 27-year-old man who loses both his legs in the 2013 bombing on Boylston Street. The movie, which opens in theaters on Sept. 22 through Roadside Attractions, signals a behind-the-scenes transformation for Gyllenhaal. It’s the first project that he has produced through his Manhattan-based company Nine Stories (named after the 1953 collection of prose by J.D. Salinger), which he launched two years ago with veteran producer Riva Marker.

“We have two goals,” says Gyllenhaal, seated next to Marker in their new offices in SoHo in downtown New York. “One is to find material I can do as an »
