On September 26th, Berlin hosted the Germany premiere for Prisoners. Hugh Jackman attended solo, although he did meet up with director Denis Villeneuve on the red carpet. He also posed alongside Svenja Wagner and French actor Guido Broscheit in several pictures. I’ve added numerous HQ shots to the gallery. Enjoy!
Hugh Jackman appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last night to promote his new film, Prisoners (which is now in theaters). You can watch the video below (or visit the site; he comes in just after the second commercial break. Talking about his tough guy persona, Hugh recalled a time when he was involved in a fight — in rollerblades. Be sure to tune in after they go to commercial, as he and Jimmy do a hilarious skit while arm wrestling. Hugh drops some lines you never thought you’d hear him say.
Prisoners held a special screening for members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences yesterday, September 19th. Hugh Jackman attended the event, held at the Academy Theater at Lighthouse International in New York. Joining him were his Prisoners co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Terrence Howard, Maria Bello, Melissa Leo, and Paul Dano for a screening and special Q&A.
Yesterday afternoon (September 19th), Hugh Jackman enjoyed a special luncheon hosted by the Peggy Siegal Company and Warner Brothers in honor of Prisoners. At the event, the cast achieved additional praise for their inspired work in the drama film. Hugh was joined by co-star Jake Gyllenhaal along with Paul Dano, Melissa Leo, and Terrence Howard. There’s a bunch of HQ photos in the gallery, so enjoy!
Although I don’t have an entire video of the appearance, the entire cast of Prisoners was on “Katie” today to talk about the film. (You can check out numerous videos below.) There’s a lot of serious discussion on the subject matter of the film – especially because so many are mothers and fathers – but the interview is especially worth checking out for the cast members’ camaraderie and chemistry. Plus, find out which of the cast is voted Biggest Clown and Most Likely to Eat at the Crafts Service Table. Hugh Jackman appears in all the videos.
What is about to unfold, over steaming cups of tea on a recent Thursday evening, can only be described as an epic bromance between two very chiseled leading men.
“I hope this doesn’t come across as too much of a fluff piece with two actors who really, really loved working with one another,” Jake Gyllenhaal says with a sigh, a bit chagrined after spending an hour extolling the numerous virtues of Hugh Jackman.
The two geek out when they’re together, their conversation ranging from stupid paparazzi encounters in Manhattan to the times they watched ESPN in Gyllenhaal’s Prisoners trailer during filming. The two instantly bonded, and Jackman gives much of the credit to his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.
“She has a lot of qualities of Jake, actually. When the two of them got together, Deb’s like, ‘I like him, he reminds me of me. He’s awesome,’” announces Jackman, grinning wickedly. “What comes into their heads comes out. They are idealistic, big dreamers, quite romantic. Both have a wicked sense of humor, very naughty. Don’t tell them what to do.”
He turns to Gyllenhaal, who looks almost teary-eyed. “You’ll tell me the (expletive) things about yourself, which most people want to hide about themselves, especially movie stars. Deb and I have been fans of Jake since October Sky — we’ve always thought that this kid is unbelievable.”
