There's a huge amount to post this evening but before we get going on the Gyllengoodies, it appears from initial US box office reports that Source Code was second on its opening night (inevitably beaten by a film about a rabbit that poops jelly beans) and is well on its way to achieving $15 million from its first weekend. So congratulations to Duncan Jones, Jake Gyllenhaal and all concerned in creating a movie that has got everyone talking and has attracted fantastic reviews. I rather liked this summary as well as this look at Duncan Jones, the tweeter.
In my local Apple store, you get a few iPads and iPhones on display and even an available shop assistant if you're very lucky. In NYC, you get Jake Gyllenhaal. Last night, Jake, Duncan and Michelle Monaghan (wearing the most extraordinary heels that make me dizzy just looking at them) took part in a Meet the Filmmakers session in the store. Not everyone managed to get in. You can get an idea of the atmosphere from this picture. But for those who did...
Also last night, Jake, Michelle and Duncan introduced another screening.
There are also some further pictures from the screening in NYC the night before, 31 March.
Earlier in the evening, Jake had taken part in a silent auction for New Eyes for the Needy and you can read a little about that here. Jake talks a little about the charity in a great feature in today's Telegraph. The magazine not only features Jake on the cover, it also has a fascinating interview in which Jake mentions that he's spent an entire year publicising films (three of them) and as a result has not been able to make any. With End of Watch set to begin filming in July, presumably in LA, it looks as if Jake will be glad to be back at work. You can read the interview here - just click on the scans.
Source Code has been attracting an enormous amount of attention across the media. It is also the number one film to see in this week's Entertainment Weekly. Many thanks to BBMISwear for the scan.
Baack to the interviews and videos. There are a few today.
Do also take a look at this interview here. The MySpace interview below, from the LA premiere, is particularly worth a look. Jake also talks, once more, about how he still wants to play Joe Namath.
