‘Nightcrawler’ is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling – where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story. Written and directed by Dan Gilroy, the likes of Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed co-star in the film. ‘Nightcrawler’ opens on October 31st in the US and November 14th in the UK
I understand Lou’s appearance wasn’t actually stipulated in the script. Lou being wide-eyed and emaciated was something you came up with after reading the script and having discussions with Dan Gilroy….?
Jake Gyllenhaal: It wasn’t in the script, but when I met with Dan… there were a lot of references in the script to coyotes, and growing up in Los Angeles, something about Lou reminded me of a coyote. I can’t really explain to you what the first instinct was about that, but I can say that while I was reading it, I had this feeling that Lou was the type of person who was hungry. And when I met with Dan we talked about how Los Angeles is in the middle of a desert, and that’s sort of ignored (laughs), but it is. And at night these wild animals come out and they start searching for food. Anyone who’s spent time in Los Angeles will tell you that at night, especially if you’re in the hills, you’ll inevitably hear coyotes attaching some other animal or you’ll hear them howling. And when Dan and I were talking about it, it hit me and him that Lou was a coyote in a way. In fact, there were times when we thought we weren’t going to be able to get the title ‘Nightcrawler,’ and we thought we might title the movie ‘Coyote’ (laughs).
So the essence of him was that he’s a coyote, he’s hungry. You see them pouncing along the street and they look like they’ll eat anything, any scrap they could find. They smell blood and they’ll move to it… and that’s Lou. So I did make myself like a coyote and made myself hungry and I lost weight. I would run at night for a long time, for 8-15 miles. I’d run to set sometimes and I ended up isolating myself over a period of time, because that’s what they are like. They work in packs but they’re mostly alone, and even the way he looks at people and the way that he behaves, it’s very much like that. He’s preying on desperate people and that was that.

First Look At Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Matt Smith & Jason Clarke For ‘Terminator Genisys'; Plot Details Revealed
Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the two covers for their upcoming issue, providing us with our first official look at ‘Terminator Genisys.’ In addition to these images, the outlet has revealed plot details for the hugely anticipated reboot: “The beginning of Terminator: Genisys is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.”
Furthermore, Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor won’t be as innocent as she was when Linda Hamilton played the role. The mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9, and since then, she’s been raised by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator – an older T-800 she calls “Pops” – who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion. “Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” says producer David Ellison. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”
