Prophecy Girl Live-Blogs Whatever This Love and Other Drugs Coverage Is on Entertainment Tonight!

Original Post:

Jake Gyllenhaal has had such a busy week this week, what with dying and then coming back to life and all.  He's like Jesus, except less's exactly like Jesus.

Also like The Lord Himself, when we ask Jake, we shall receive, and for a long time now, we've been asking Jake why the hell we haven't received something about his next movie.  You know the one.  Love and Other Drugs.  The movie Jake hated so much that he kept trying to run away from the set.

There he goes again.

But today, our prayers are being answered (yay!) in the form of a clip on the questionably reputable American celebrity-based television rag Entertainment Tonight.

So here we go!

6:30 - Tonight!  On Entertainment Tonight!  Teri Hatcher, no makeup?  No Botox?  Nooooooo!!!

6:30 - ALSO "two big movies, one big exclusive" (whatever that means).  There's some stuff about Reese and Paul Rudd but NO ONE CARES.

(still) 6:30 - Now we care:  "Jake charms Anne Hathaway right out of her clothes!"  This is accompanied by Anne losing her shirt and Jake looking like he can't believe his luck at that.

6:37 - Already!  Jesus.  I am not going to be able to do this justice.

I am dying already for this to be on YouTube so that everyone on Earth can see it.  All of you are going to be happy beyond words.  SO MUCH JAKE.

Alright we've got...

- Jake calling some woman "Lisa" and some dude telling him that's not her name.  This leads to Jake rambling through the sleaziest of all explanations as to why calling a woman by a wrong name will lead to her sleeping with him.  (Don't act like you wouldn't fall for it, either.)

- Jake is drinking.  Jake is in the office.  Jake is being hit on the head by Anne Hathaway (and her purse).

- Jake is hitting on every single woman who has shown up on film with him so far.

- Jake tells Anne she has beautiful eyes and she...totally goes for the comedic repartee instead of jumping him across the table like a normal person would do.


- Jake crying means that ANNE IS CRYING.

- And we've come full circle to the first scene where Anne takes her shirt off and Jake looks all happy, but OH I forgot to mention earlier that Jake's brother (roommate?) is also in the room and there is much screaming and yelling (this is the "comedy" part of this romantic comedy).

And that was it!  I missed, like, 80% of it, I think, in this recap. :(

Vanessa gets KUDOS FOR LIFE for hooking us up with the video on this. :D

OMG -- it's my favorite Jake -- gorgeous hair, clean-shaven, half-naked! How will I survive until Nov.24?????

Anonymous,  August 12, 2010 at 6:56 PM  

AHH! That's amazing! So what kind of vibe do you get from this trailer? who's it aimed at? More comedy or drama? Will it selllllll .. i hope so. This has to be on youtube ASAP. :D


Becky Heineke August 12, 2010 at 6:56 PM  

That was so intense. When I did this for Rendition, I taped it and then spent the next hour going back through it writing the recap. This time I thought, 'Oh! I don't need to tape it!'

I was wrong.

Becky Heineke August 12, 2010 at 6:58 PM  

Silver, we posted at the same time!! Definitely romance and definitely comedy. I wasn't expecting the tears, though! :( It was very light-hearted overall, though. Jake looked really, really good and like he was having *fun*.

Becky Heineke August 12, 2010 at 7:01 PM  

Oh and I definitely think this will sell! It's not your typical Jake trailer by any stretch of the imagination, but even for all the comedic undertones, it didn't seem vapid. Even from these few clips, you could tell it was going to be smart rather than your standard dumbed-down rom-com. :)

Vanessa August 12, 2010 at 7:06 PM  

WOW, JUST WOW!!! Thanks PG for your recap, I didn't watch it until just now off the DVR. I about fell out of my chair, he looks SOOOO good!

I do not know how we are going to make it until November. Damn!

& I completely agree with you guys about how smart this will be, definitely not the typical cheesy rom-com at all.

IHJ IHJ IHJ. It has screencaps on i cant seem to get on the community though! :D


Becky Heineke August 12, 2010 at 7:27 PM  

THANK YOU, SILVER! Post now illustrated. :)

I have no idea what's up with the IHJ community. :( It hasn't been working for me for the past 2 days...

Leslie August 12, 2010 at 8:26 PM  

The full trailer is supposedly before "Eat, Pray, Love" which I'm going to see this Saturday. I'll let you know how it is.

Anonymous,  August 12, 2010 at 9:25 PM  

Jake funny, Jake flirting, Jake naked, Jake in a doctor`s uniform, this movie has everything! Is it November yet?

Great job with the live-blogging, PG. :)


Vanessa August 12, 2010 at 9:58 PM  

OMG, I am so going to see Eat, Pray, Love this Sunday!!! Yippee! I just hope they put up the real trailer online so we can see it anytime we want to while we have to wait such a LONG time for it to get here. Lovely lovely nakedey Jakey... Yummmmmmm

Becky Heineke August 12, 2010 at 10:03 PM  

Thank you, Olympia! :) And now, thanks to Vanessa, we have the full trailer. YAY!! :D

Becky Heineke August 12, 2010 at 10:04 PM  

And by "full," I mean "30 second ET snippet." But still!!

gyllenhaalisgr8 August 13, 2010 at 12:04 AM  

I feel compelled to make one more comment tonight. The L&OD trailer was just what the doctor ordered, considering the events of a couple of days ago. In my humble opinion, Jake has NEVER looked so handsome (just the look I love)! If this movie doesn't reduce Matthew McConauhey to chopped liver and elevate Jake to major leading man status, I don't know what will! It was SO good to see him in something new and fresh and comedic. He is, and shall always be, the most beautiful, precious man on the planet! Can I get a squee?!

KD,  August 13, 2010 at 12:27 AM  




This movie looks genius. Is it wrong that I am more excited for this movie for Anne Hathaway (naked) than for Jake? YOU ALL ARE GOING TO KILL ME NOW AREN'T YOU? Two of my all time favorite actors are in this movie, and together! no less!

Oh, and to KeepCalm - Sorry for the late reply. Here in HK the timing is totally different. Anyway, those places sound amazing I'm only might be stopping over in Spain and even then only for a week at most. I'll definitely hit up Barcelona. I'll check out your other recommendations though for sure. THERE IS SOME FREAK WEATHER GOING ON GLOBALLY. Heat waves in Russia and the US, flooding in Pakistan and China, snow in Brazil and Argentina? I guess TDAT wasn't too far off after all!

(There has been a million freak wind storms and thunder storms over here too)

YOU'RE GOING TO MOROCCO AS WELL? IT'S FATE. Jake - I mean Our Lord - is tying us together through divine will. I'll be hitting up Morocco around June 20th, 2011 and be there for about a week. As PG said, I have been ordered to scout PoP and Rendition locations. I have to check exactly where in Morocco I'm headed, but later because my sister is rushing me out of the apartment right now to go out for lunch.

Thanks for the update "Love And Other Drugs" trailer. I'm looking forward to watching this movie! But I don't know when the movie put on the screen in Japan. I can't wait.


Sasha,  August 13, 2010 at 1:45 AM  

loool - to the movie ... I can't wait to see it.

and lol-lol to your live blogging PG - great work there YAYYY!

KeepCalm August 13, 2010 at 3:11 AM  

OMG HE IS SO FINE. I am beyond excited right now! I reckon this will do well in the cinema- hopefull :)

KD- AHH I think I am going to Morroco in June '11!!!! Crazy. Jake clearly wants us to meet. Let me know whereabouts your heading :D

KeepCalm August 13, 2010 at 3:14 AM  

Im my excitement I actually commented on this without watching the actual trailer... It's amazing. I just KNOW I will adore this film. And usually, I despise Anna Hathaway but I think she may actually be bearable this time! ;)

BTW PG- so right on the no care cares for reese.

Ty PG and Vanessa 4 the tube vid and the play-by-play. I didn't see it myself, and didn't DVR it, so glad you gals put it up for us online.

I am so beyond excited, much more than any other film of his. I have watched it obsessively now way more times than one should.

Jake looks so hot in this, a clean-shaven Jakey is my fave too. I so need a screen cap of Jake tongue half out when he's storming into apt making out w/Annie. I had to paused the vid and it landed on that part. Around (1:09 I think) can someone get me that screen cap plz?

I'm so obsessed w/his mouth (one of many things) and it's like youtube knew to pause @ that exact moment. *melts*

I don't know if I'll make it till Nov. 24th that seems so far from now. I hope they release a longer trailer than this soon. Some delicious-jakey-nakedness would hold me over til the premiere... lol

Mayumintolor, I will be on the lookout for a Japanese release date! Right now, hardly any countries have dates and the ones outside the U.S. are all a month or so after it comes out here. Hopefully we'll be getting a more complete schedule soon!

Leslie (and Vanessa!), we'll all anxiously be awaiting your full trailer report! :D (I might see this movie myself this weekend, but I don't know for sure yet...)

And BeautifulMess, does this work?

Or this?

Or this?

(Bonus shot: with spit string.)


Becky Heineke August 13, 2010 at 9:31 AM  

P.S. I have no idea why those wound up being so tiny. :( Sorry about that!

KeepCalm August 13, 2010 at 9:32 AM  

I know this a totally random random comment but on the music channel I'm watching, Jamie Foxx's Blame It just came on and how I WISH Jake would just shave his beard off and be like he is in the vid ;D

Monica August 13, 2010 at 9:41 AM  

That's amazing!

Leslie August 13, 2010 at 10:11 AM  

PG - thanks for those stills . . while I got all twitterpated and stuff over here, I can't help but giggle too . . especially if JG ever did stop by here to see what gets put up and commented on about him! *LOL*

Call Me Mo August 13, 2010 at 10:36 AM  

2 things:

- Woo! Judy Greer!!

- I think they maybe could've come up with a more original title. Just sayin'.

Becky Heineke August 13, 2010 at 11:01 AM  

I would love to know Jake's reaction to what goes on over here. I'd love even more to know his reaction to the set of pictures I have ready to go for the next post. ;D

WHICH, by the way, I'm waiting to put up until I can see if I can get some scans of the new Entertainment Weekly, which has a little sneak peak in it. (THANK YOU, MONICA! :D)


coffeecat August 13, 2010 at 11:18 AM  

Well PG, you tried, you really tried so kudos for that.

coffeecat August 13, 2010 at 11:21 AM  

WHOA - is that a Tall Sock imprint on Jake's forward running leg? You mean he was wearing Tall Socks and we weren't privy to that!?

Vanessa August 13, 2010 at 11:43 AM  

LMAO coffeecat, well aren't you the sock watcher of the year??? I didn't even notice that until you said something. Hah! It sure looks like it to me... >;-)

KD,  August 13, 2010 at 12:28 PM  

Total Win Mo.

KeepCalm - I'll definitely let you know when I find out! MAYBE WE CAN SCOUT LOCATIONS TOGETHER. Or just have drinks. That's cool too.

Monica - Thanks for the link. It was an awesome read.

And to everyone - Clean shaven Jake is my favorite too, though I am partial to his scruffy look in PoP as well. Mmm-mmm!

Sasha,  August 13, 2010 at 12:31 PM  

Sock mark? *lost*

I need to stop coming back to watch this trailer/snippet - it only makes me wanting that movie coming out now more and more and more .... *packsherbagstomovetotheUSA* <<< I could finally watch it already on Nov 24th ;) not like in years to come

Sasha,  August 13, 2010 at 1:18 PM  

oh btw: anyone can access IHJ community???

Vanessa August 13, 2010 at 1:29 PM  

I was able to get into IHJ forum, gallery, & all just now, but then I hadn't tried earlier. Probably having net issues today, hard to say.

I just wish there was some way I could record the trailer at the theater & bring it back for everyone, but that's not possible, so all we can do is hope like hell they get it online asap. Wish they would hurry with the official website too, damn they are taking too long with the promotional stuff. Arrrggghhh, impatience truly sucks. >;-)

Voulez Vouz August 13, 2010 at 2:11 PM  

I think I'm.....*falls out and dies* JAKE LOOKS AMAZING! I was 86% sure that I wanted to do this move but now I'm 345, 343% sure. Jake's hawtness is...ridiculous. I will weep many tears when he meets that special woman he'll marry...LMAO!

Becky Heineke August 13, 2010 at 3:01 PM  

^^^ That's pretty damned sure! HA! ;D

I can't believe I missed the sock mark!! Sasha, if you look at the picture of Jake running, there's an indentation on his shin where it looks like he was wearing higher socks earlier. And since I have a high sock fetish, I'm so mad right now we don't have pictures of them!!

And IHJ must have just come back up. It's been down since Wednesday. :(

Becky Heineke August 13, 2010 at 3:05 PM  

OK, now I'm DEFINITELY waiting to put up the next post because I'm pretty sure Vanessa is at Eat, Pray, Love right now so we might be getting a blow-by-blow on the full trailer. *fingers crossed!*

BeautifulMess74 August 13, 2010 at 11:17 PM  

I can't even begin to imagine what Jake would think if he read what we (I) have written on here. I would hope my obsessive fetishes wouldn't freak him out. Esp since I'm new to the board and I'm just warming up. lol

Cuz I mean really, who wouldn't understand that his eyes, lips, tongue, hairy-chest, moles, teeth (wtf?) are healthy obsessions. They might sound freaky (especially seen listed here. [PS left out the dirtier one(s) ;)]) but really broken down one by one, not all that freaky. (to me at least) BTW, PG--I totally think your sock fetish is cute.

I'd noticed the sock mark too, I figured you had as well, PG. I thought it looks so deep cuz maybe he was wearing trouser socks and had that sock-holster-garter-thingies to hold 'em up.

TY for all for the clips, vids and the laughs, this blog/boards are a riot! I'm so happy to have found you gals. I am the only one of my friends who's a fan of Jake's, so it's awesome to meet other like-minded ppl. So please if you'd love to follow me, and keep in touch--my info is below. I'll be sure to look out for socks/and their marks for you, PG.
