Updated to add a new clip from Source Code which you can watch at iVillage. Many thanks to MMM for the heads up!
There is a new trailer for Source Code - I like it... a lot. Without giving much of the plot away, it introduces characters, an impossible, high-energy situation, drama and relationships. It comes courtesy of Moviefone.
While Jake Gyllenhaal continues to conduct business meetings across LA which - fingers, toes and eyelashes crossed - will result in a glut of future movies, Michelle Monaghan has been talking to Extra about Source Code. In what is our first proper look at Jake's new leading lady, Michelle tells us that it's 'a very emotional film' because it 'begs the audience to ask oneself what would you do or say in your last eight minutes'. I have quite a list...
As for Jake, Michelle tells us that Jake 'is such an amazing, amazing guy. He's such a pleasure to be around because he's one of the funniest people I've ever met and that's a side that I hadn't seen of him. And he's a real goofball! He really is! We had a really great time working together. It was a real pleasurable experience. And on top of that he's a phenomenal actor. He's probably one of the most supportive actors that I've ever had the opportunity to work with. And I can't say enough good things about him. He's so cute!! He is! He's really cute!'
I rather like Michelle! She definitely has good judgement...
Stars have been telling the Washington Examiner about their first experience of visiting the Oscars. I only managed to gatecrash the Night Before Party and walk on an empty hours-to-go red carpet and that set off the butterflies. And so imagine if you were actually there, at the centre of all that attention.
This is what Jake remembers: 'Jake Gyllenhaal was totally overwhelmed: "It's like this mind-blowingly intense situation. And, yet, at the same time, oddly normal, which makes it even more strange. I remember George Clooney shaking my hand at one point as I was walking to my seat, and not believing it. And I remember so many — a sea of famous people's faces, I remember that."
I am sure there will be others who will remember seeing Jake at the Oscars and similar events and getting every bit as much of a mind-blowing experience. Whatever we say about the Oscars and their 'mistakes', it is a very exciting time to be in LA.
