Nightcrawler is out today! Jake Gyllenhaal on the box

It's Halloween! And that can mean only one thing - Nightcrawler is released in the US and UK today. At last! I was lucky enough to see it last weekend and Jake Gyllenhaal gives one of those performances we'll be talking of for years and it's completely unlike any other role of his. This is also one of those rare Jake movies where Jake is on screen for almost every frame of the movie. You can also pick up some camera tips.

The release of Nightcrawler is big news among the chat shows and Jake (and the love Rene Russo) has been doing the rounds, including a long awaited reappearance on Ellen. Here are some videos and links to other videos. Enjoy your Halloween! And thank you so much to IHJ! There is more to come but I thought this was a good place to start to get you in the mood!

Wow! I hope you enjoy the videos over a cuppa this morning and enjoy the film! For those where it's not opening today, I hope you don't have long to wait. Have a wonderful spooky Friday!

Really love all of this. Reviews for Jake are awesome!

Ooh, good, Sonja! Not too long to wait at all :)

Hello...long time no visit (for me)! So happy to catch up on some of your updates - I've stopped by here off and on but never long enough to comment but I made sure I came back!

That's great you got to see Nightcrawler early, Kate - I saw it today and was completely blown away! You're so right that it isn't like any other role Jake has ever taken on and what a gift to have him in almost every single frame of the film. His performance is absolutely incredible and if he doesn't pick up some awards for this one there is seriously something wrong with Hollywood (well, actually, we all know there is something seriously wrong with Hollywood so never mind).

I haven't watched any of the talk shows yet but have each and every one recorded on my DVR and I plan to have a Jake Talk Show marathon this weekend (I just have to get past Halloween festivities first). Speaking of...gotta run...but good to stop by and catch up on some things. Great job Kate as usual!!

P.S. Your trip to Spain looked amazing...ever the traveler still...glad to hear it! I'll try to get back here again soon...lots and lots of Nightcrawler things to still catch up on. :-)

It's a wonderful post, Kate. I'm still catching up (the internet at home doesn't work properly today). Thank you for keeping us updated. Nightcrawler is receiving wonderful reviews. Can't wait to see it myself. @Sonja: in which part of the Netherlands do you live ? I live near the border to the Netherlands (Limburg) and I go to the theater there quite often.
Have a nice evening everyone. Christina

Sonja said...

Christina, are you German or Belgian?

I live in the middle of The Netherlands, a car drive of about 35 minutes north of Eindhoven :-)

Sonja, I'm German and I live right across the border near Venlo/Roermond. I guess Eindhoven is approx. 1 - 1,5 hours away from here. Christina

Sonja said...

That's cool! :-)
