Jake Gyllenhaal Plays a Boston Marathon Victim in the Heartbreaking Trailer For Stronger

There's a good chance that, at some point over the course of his career, Jake Gyllenhaal has made you cry. Maybe it was in Brokeback Mountain? Or Love & Other Drugs? Perhaps you just shed a tear after you realized you'd paid $11 for a movie ticket to see Bubble Boy. Either way, Gyllenhaal is no stranger to making us all weep. His latest film, Stronger, seems like another inspirational tearjerker, telling the true story of Boston Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman. In an effort to win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany), Jeff (Gyllenhaal) cheers her on as she runs the 2013 Boston Marathon, only to have his legs blown off in one of the explosions. His road to recovery is a painful one, but with the help of Erin and his family, he faces his struggles head on. Prepare to cry when it comes out this Fall.

First Trailer for 'Everything, Everything' Movie with Amandla Stenberg

"I'm messing with your life." "My life is better with you in it." Warner Bros has debuted a trailer for the adaptation Everything, Everything, a drama about a young woman with a disease that keeps her locked up inside her home. She longs for a boy who lives across the street, and of course they try to get together. Amandla Stenberg, who played Rue in the original The Hunger Games (but is all grown up now), stars as Maddy in the film. The cast includes Nick Robinson as the boy she's in love with, Ana de la Reguera, Anika Noni Rose, and Taylor Hickson. It's based on the book by Nicola Yoon. This looks particularly cheesy and sappy, but that makes sense. It's obvious why Warner Bros released this on Valentine's Day - it looks like a mix between Me Before You and The Space Between Us and Bubble Boy,

'Demolition' Trailer: Watch Jake Gyllenhaal Demolish His Entire Life

Jake Gyllenhaal's recent movie wives don't even have a lifespan long enough to survive the trailer. At least that was the case with Southpaw and now Demolition, the latest movie from Wild and Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée. In it Gyllenhaal stars as a man facing some tough times when his life is shattered by the death of his wife. That may be a somewhat familiar setup for a movie, but what looks to really take Demolition to the next level is yet another remarkable performance by Gyllenhaal. It seems like year after year he's getting better and better material to work with (he's certainly grown a lot since Bubble Boy), and it's probably a safe bet that this is a movie to keep an eye on for his performance alone. When our Erik...

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it an 88 score, saying: "While Southpaw will surprise almost no one who has seen a fair amount of boxing movies, Fuqua’s direction and the excellent performances keep the action humming."

Tbt: Jake Gyllenhaal Opens Up About Life Onset of Bubble Boy in 2001—Watch Now!
Jake Gyllenhaal has come a long way since Bubble Boy, so it's always fun to take a look back to see when stars were just beginning to make a name for themselves! The Oscar nominee sat down with E! News to talk about the movie that put him in a bubble for a long time, and joked that while the bubble was a hassle, it was incredibly "protective" during death-defying stunts. Even though he was definitely nervous, he told the director, "Let's go!" when it came time to almost get sucked into an engine. Even though it looks like a pretty basic prop—a giant plastic bubble—Gyllenhaal revealed to us at the time that it was anything but basic. It often malfunctioned or caused other problems,...

Here’s the Trailer for ‘Accidental Love,’ the Film That Could’ve Made Jessica Biel’s Career

The long-delayed trailer for David O’Russell‘s quirky comedy, Accidental Love, has finally dropped, and the fact that it was filmed seven years ago couldn’t be more evident.

Previously titled Nailed, the film tells the story of a waitress (Jessica Biel) who’s ditched by her fiance (James Marsden) when she’s shot with a nail in the head that she doesn’t have the insurance to remove. This leads her to seek the help of a pretty politician, played by a baby calf-looking Jake Gyllenhaal, to reform health care.

Accidental Love is a departure from Russell’s most recent project American Hustle, with the tone feeling like a mix of Bubble Boy and Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. Despite the film’s campiness, you can’t help but imagine what it would’ve done for Biel’s career back when it was made in the 2000s.

Jake Gyllenhaal is jacked in first image from boxing drama Southpaw

  • JoBlo
Jake Gyllenhaal lost a bunch of weight for his Nightcrawler role, but it appears he gained it all back (and then some) for his upcoming boxing flick Southpaw. The first image from the film has been released, featuring the actor's new look for the Antoine Fuqua movie, and by "new look" I mean a ton of muscle. "You got something to say about Bubble Boy? Step into the ring, bro!" A few months ago Gyllenhaal told Variety he worked out six...

Spotlight on the Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of Hollywood’s most interesting stars. It’s certified A-lister Jake Gyllenhaal, the rare actor who’s only becoming more famous as he pursues more and more interesting fare. In fact, for a true blue A-list actor, he’s only rarely gone the blockbuster route. More often, he chooses unique work that requires him to really go above and beyond. Already an Academy Award nominee, he’s someone who’s due for not just another nomination, but a win as well. I have no doubt that Oscar will come calling soon, perhaps even next year, but when that time comes, he’ll be incredibly deserving of that honor. As such, it’s a pleasure to fete him this week in my Spotlight on the Stars series. Gyllenhaal got his start on screens with a small role in City Slickers,
