Pic ’n’ Mix is back with Niamh Geaney bringing you the top 5 in the box office this week along with the worst performer to make sure you avoid it! Films like Fury and Nightcrawler make an appearance this week and we let you if their ranking is just and what you at home and critics alike make of them.
For our pic of the week this week we've gone continental and we’ve also chosen a battle hardened movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch as our upcoming cinema release to watch out for.
Join us back here tomorrow for Spotlight where we speak to the stars.
The official trailer for Nightcrawler has been released, and can we just say, that Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is TOTALLY overshadowing what could be one of the best films of the year.
Look how skinny Jake Gyllenhaal is! And look how intense he is! And look how creepy he is when he stares at the camera! We can’t WAIT for this film, but unfortunately we have to. It’s not released until October 17th, which is AGES away.
Sigh – we’ll just watch the trailer over and over and over again until then.
Jake Gyllenhaal has done a Matthew McConaughey on it and lost a whole lot of weight for his new film Nightcrawler. He reportedly lost 20 pounds for the role of Lou Bloom, a struggling freelance crime reporter. He explained his reason for doing so: “I knew that [Lou] was literally and figuratively hungry,” so he got into a “mode where I was always a bit hungry.” From what we’ve heard about the gruelling 24-hour filming schedule, the stress on Jake’s face in this promo isn’t all acting. He also hurt his hand during filming when he punched a mirror while deep in character. With all that hardship, and having made the film with practically no money, surely an Oscar is on the cards? Watch the promo video and see what you think!
