Jake Gyllenhaal in talks to take on Sons of Anarchy creator's boxing drama Southpaw

Kurt Sutter's boxing drama script for SOUTHPAW (based on a pitch to Dreamworks) was made into a vehicle for Eminem a few years ago, but was later dropped and hot potatoed around town. Now, it appears the Sons of Anarchy creator's script has found a new home with The Weinstein Company, who have hired director Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY, OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN) to helm it and are...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Hugh Jackman from Prisoners

I’ve always been a fan of Hugh Jackman ’s. Who wouldn’t be? The guy can seemingly do it all. Not only does he make an iconically badass Wolverine, but on the side the guy can sing and dance like nobody’s business (LES MISERABLES). But, I think it’s safe to say that PRISONERS tests his mettle more than anything else he’s ever done. To me, his parts as Keller Dover in PRISONERS has all...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Jake Gyllenhaal from Prisoners

It's hard to believe that Jake Gyllenhaal hit TIFF this year with not one, but two brilliant collaborations with director Denis Villeneuve . Before they shot PRISONERS, they teamed on a micro-budget thriller called ENEMY ( read my review here ), and the two obviously hit it off, as the segued right into this massively ambitious project. As far as I'm...

Review: Prisoners

( read Chris Bumbray's review HERE ) PLOT: The father of a missing girl kidnaps and tortures the man he believes is responsible for her abduction while a detective doggedly investigates the case. REVIEW: PRISONERS has a stranglehold on you in the moment; at any given time, it's as taut and gripping as can be hoped for. It is spectacularly made on a technical level...

Exclusive 1:1 interviews with Melissa Leo and Paul Dano from Prisoners

Interviewing Paul Dano and Melissa Leo turned out to be one of the tougher assignments I had at this year's TIFF. It's not that they weren't perfectly charming (both Leo and Dano were exceptionally nice), but the issue is that in the movie PRISONERS, they play the two characters without delving too deeply into the movie's plot, which is a no-no for a film like this. As such, I...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Maria Bello from Prisoners

I've been a fan of Maria Bello 's for a long time- back from her time on a short-lived Scott Bakula spy-show, MR & MRS. SMITH, to her amazing work in movies like THE COOLER, WORLD TRADE CENTER, and A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. She's truly emerged as one of the most talented actresses of her generation, and just seems to get better and better. Denis Villeneuve 's PRISONERS is a...

Check out five intense clips from Prisoners with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal

I was looking forward to Denis Villeneuve 's PRISONERS after seeing the trailers for it, but it wasn't until Bumbray's TIFF review that it became a "can't miss." I love a film with balls that isn't afraid to take risks and expose the ugliness in pursuit of righteousness and PRISONERS sounds like it lives and breathes in that arena. Today, we have a peek...

The JoBlo.com 2013 Fall Preview

With Labor Day weekend having come and gone, the summer of 2013 is officially in the books. We now begin the fall movie season. For my money, this is the best movie-going season of them all, as it's during the fourth quarter (which technically kicks off in October) that all the studios release their “prestige” movies, and Oscar contenders. This week, I'll be heading off to the Toronto...
