‘Nightcrawler’ Screen Captures

February 15th, 2015

Nightcrawler is already available on DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital and screen captures can now be found in our gallery.

If you didn’t see this film yet, fix it ASAP! Jake is insanely brilliant on it!

USA Today published an interesting article about a controversy regarding Lou Bloom’s man-bun on Nightcrawler.

Let’s face it, man-buns are still pretty edgy to rock, even if Hollywood’s A-list has worked it — Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Jared Leto, Orlando Bloom. But imagine being Jake Gyllenhaal and telling big name money producers that you want to rock the man-bun as the star of Nightcrawler.
Director, screenwriter Dan Gilroy tells USA TODAY it didn’t go down so hot.

A week before shooting Jake said, ‘I’d like to put my hair in this man-bun (each time) before the character does something larcenous.’ There were people who didn’t want that to happen. But I was supportive of it.

After all it was Jake’s idea to lose 30 pounds to play coyote-like cameraman Louis Bloom in the drama. And Jake’s idea to grow the hair long. Gilroy had envisioned a short, military hair cut. But a movie is a collaboration.

Our process was, let’s try stuff. It’s an outlandish idea, but let’s try it. But anytime people put up money, producers and things, and you’re changing the star element in ways that are unpredictable. People get nervous. There was already the weight loss. He lost 27 pounds. There was great consternation. He looked like a ghoul. He looked utterly un-Jakelike.

In the end, Gyllenhaal’s hair was long, and it went up in the bun whenever he was doing something like illegally sneaking into someone’s house to film.

It was a functional thing, (Louis Bloom) didn’t want his hair to get into the way.

Nightcrawler is currently available on DVD/Blu-Ray.

Seven years ago David O Russell began work on a political comedy called Nailed, starring Jessica Biel as a roller waitress who gets a nail lodged in her brain and heads to Washington to spark a healthcare revolution. Based on a novel by Kristin Gore (who co-wrote the script), and featuring an impressive ensemble of acting talent, the project was to be Russell’s triumphant follow-up to I Heart Huckabees. Instead, it suffered insurmountable financial setbacks, with production halting no less than eight or nine separate times. Russell finally walked away in 2010 leaving Nailed to languish in limbo for another half-decade. Until this year, in which the film arrived with a new title (Accidental Love), another name as the director (Stephen Greene, as Alan Smithee was apparently indisposed), and reportedly a few extra scenes inserted throughout.

The film is available onDemand, iTunes or Amazon. The film will get a limited release on theaters next Friday (February 20th) as well.

Due its release on demand, I was able to watch it and added screen captures at the gallery, which you can see by following the links below:

This was announced on the verified Jake Facebook page, with the video below:

Harvey Weinstein’s outfit has prebought U.S. rights to Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming Colombian crime biopic The Man Who Made It Snow, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

The co-financing deal, struck with Stuart Ford’s IM Global, was announced at the Berlin Film Festival, where IM Global is handling the film internationally. Foreign buyers already investing in the biopic, set to start shooting later this year, are sure to be pleased that a domestic distributor is on board (IM Global first launched the project to international distributors in November at the American Film Market).

Man Who Made It Snow is the first title from Fuqua’s overall deal with IM Global. Gyllenhaal is also a producer on the film, in which he’ll star as the late Max Mermelstein, purported to be the only American who was in the inner circle of the Colombian cartels in the go-go 1980s. Brett Tabor and Michael Kingston’s screenplay is based on Mermelstein’s bestselling autobiography.

His performance as Lou, a sociopath who spends his nights filming footage of heinous crime scenes to sell to the morning news, has earned the actor the best reviews of his career and multiple awards nominations (and hopefully wins), cementing the 34-year-old as one of the most exciting actors working in Hollywood today.

“My character does do some morally corrupt things,” Gyllenhaal says of Lou in the video below. Here he explains Lou’s motivations, joined in the video by his co-stars in the film, Rene Russo and Riz Ahmed.
