Jake’s performance in ‘Southpaw’ is among W Magazine’s best performances of 2015.

Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw

‘I had no idea how to box before Southpaw. In an early sparring session, I got hit in the face and then in the body, and that first body shot dropped me. In my work, I try to get into the real space of my characters, but at that moment, I thought, What the hell am I doing this for?’

From ‘Southpaw’ to ‘Demolition,’ Jake Plays Against Convention
2 December, 2015 Author: Catagories: Demolition, Interviews, Southpaw

Those who recall Jake Gyllenhaal’s breakthrough performance as “Donnie Darko” in 2001 might have a tough time reconciling that little-boy-lost character with his pumped-up prizefighter in this year’s “Southpaw.” The latter work conjured the kind of body-and-soul transformations associated with Robert De Niro in his prime, or another child actor-turned-leading man, Christian Bale.

In his review for Variety, Justin Chang wrote: “You can practically smell the blood, the sweat and the fierce actorly commitment rising from Jake Gyllenhaal’s bruised and tattooed body.”

Gyllenhaal’s role in “Nightcrawler,” barely a year prior, went in the opposite direction physically, with his nocturnal prowling cameraman with a nose for carnage looking gaunt to the point of sickly.

‘Southpaw’ Gets Awards Season Re-Release
1 October, 2015 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Southpaw

At the Cannes Film Festival in May, Harvey Weinstein vowed to get Jake Gyllenhaal an Oscar nomination for Antoine Fuqua’s boxing drama “Southpaw” after the actor was shockingly passed over for a nod in last year’s “Nightcrawler.” It appears that wasn’t just lip service: The Weinstein Company announced Thursday that the film will be re-released on more than 300 screens tomorrow, Oct. 2.

The move gives the film a chance “to be seen by a more drama- and awards-focused fall audience,” according to the distributor. Added TWC President of Theatrical Distribution & Home Entertainment Erik Lomis, the re-release “gives more serious-minded audiences who may have missed it the first time around a chance to see a film that we feel is a very serious contender.”
