SO WE STILL HAVE NO ZODIAC TRAILER

(And I can't express how much this doesn't count.) But we do get a new production photo roughly every 5 to 7 months to cruelly show us what we're missing and I guess we were due for a new one. Damn that excruciatingly slow pre-release promotional campaign.

Anyway, Jake, you sexy bitch.
And because I think we need to take a closer look at that:
Amazingly, he's even managed to make a bland '70's analog watch look hot. Unbelievable.

Picture from Premiere Magazine orginally, scan from iheartjake.

Jake, yep sexy beast as always. But here is my question....what's going on with the two guys in the background!?!?

Anonymous said...

I have two very important questions about this film:
#1 - Will he be taking a shower or two in the movie?
#2 - Will he have hot, naked sex in the movie?

Anonymous said...

Looks like the same shirt he wore in "Brokeback". The movie should be a thriller.

I love analog watches....digital is for unimaginative people.

If we collect enough stills from the movie....print them on card stock....then flick the edge...
voila...moving pictures...

Agnes said...

Oh I was so focused on Jake I didn't see the guys in the background at first. Had to go back and look again ;) Don't have the answer though...

Yep PG we need to take a close look at that because they don’t cooperate with us. Give us the trailer already or we have to do it like Simon says.

ripley said...

Damn! He's leaning again. That was the first moment he got me in Brokeback. The way he leaned againest his truck as he looked at Ennis...
Now he's doing it again. He's just not playing fair. That tease.

sass said...

Lord help us all. Listen Fincher, I love all your movies...though not so much Fight Club...so Hurry up with this movie starry sexy Jake afore I totally loose it.

veeveevee said...

Dang, does he know how to fill out jeans, or what???

dani said...

Does his character have a wife or a girl friend? He has to have at least one sexy love scene before he gets all distracted by the murders. And like the anon at 1:12 said, one or two showers would be nice. Otherwise I don't see the point of Jake keeping his body so fit if he's not going to share it with us.

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Oh God I love that man. I'm with dani--sharing is the way to go, Jake. I know your mother had to have taught you that lesson! Hmm, Simon, I think a Jake flip book could be a very good idea...

SquallCloud said...

Okay yes, he's a The Sex all praise due but Where the HELL is Anneka on the banner. You're wrecking my world over here Brits. I can't take all this upheaval. Glad that Jakey is on the banner now but at the loss of the third in the holy triumverant of stalking? I don't know that its' worth it.

cina said...

DAMN.

*thud*

Someone pick me up please?

cina said...

Okey, I managed to pick myself up.

Does his character have a wife or a girl friend?

He has a girlfriend/wife AND kids in this movie! Apparently there is one scene where he's rocking and hushing his baby to sleep, holding him in his arms. Now isn't that to die for?! His girlfriend is played by Chloe Sevigny.

cina said...

I love the new banner btw! Even though Anneka is missing.

And I swear I'll stop posting now.

alexa said...

Yummy, what sight to start the morning. Jake, you sexy beast!

I can´t wait for that damn movie.

Btw, cool new banner, but where is Anneka? Did she go undercover?

britpopbaby said...

Well, it wasn't actually Anneka on the banner it was some random agent named 'J' and I had to make room for sexy hooded Jake so she got cut - fair enough I say. We're still tinkering with it.

But back to Jake - he is kinda dressed like Jack Twist but I guess that's the 70's for ya. And who is RDJnr playing in this film? Passing tramp?

mrs_dalloway said...

Oh,I adore those 70's shirts!!And he's the perfect man to wear them.Actually,he's the perfect man.Period.
They're giving things from the movie piece by piece,I see.What's next,I wonder..something more interesting than the "Brokeback" leaning..maybe a "Jarhead" dancing?what? it's not that kind of movie?

cina said...

It just hit me that he looks a lot like his father in that photo.

S4M985 said...

Omg i cant wait to see this movie even more now! he looks awesome!

phoebe said...

Damn, he looks FINE! Is he even aware of what he's doing to a girl like me?! Looking GORGEOUS, wearing those jeans like no one else, leaning all sexy like that, teasing us? God help me...

Release that freaking movie NOW!!

cina said...

Looks like the same shirt he wore in "Brokeback". The movie should be a thriller.

Actually it looks more like Ennis' shirt in Brokeback.

phoebe said...

^^ I agree, cina!

mrs_dalloway said...

The more I think about it,the more I can't wait to see this movie!And yes,the main reason might be Jake,but also Robert Downey Jr!I had a crush on him when I was watching Ally McBeal,his character was fabulous.
I'm very curious to see them in the same movie.
I'm only afraid to have too many expectations from this movie,and then to be somehow dissapointed.You know,when you want too many things..you might not be satisfied with just a few.

Katie said...

phewie!! Jack Twist is back. I want to see this film EVEN more now - didn't think that was possible.

BTW - I'm rather partial to an old-fashioned watch myself.

I'm glad they've done nothing weird with Jake's hair this time...

Memo to my boss

Unable to work today, Jake's jeans have me transfixed.

Luv Me.

cina said...

I'm sure Jake is too... LOL!

nice anonymous said...

I do like the "regular guy" vibe that I get from this picture. Jake is indeed extremely attractive here. He looks kindly & earnest, and his stomach is beautifully flat, in a way that it probably would not have been on an actual male in the 70s, which was a time when not very many men worked out diligently -- even actors. The standard of male beauty was very different then.

But I've now become a little fearful that Robert Downey Jr. might steal all of the scenes in which he & Jake appear together. Look at that cigarette, that jaded, newsroom slouch, that battered IBM selectric typewriter -- Downey reeks of authenticity & appears to have disappeared into the character. (I've admired Downey for years, so maybe I'm biased & rooting for him.) I'm afraid: Are the reviews for "Zodiac" going to be like those for "Brokeback Mountain," where the critics were all raving about Heath Ledger, so that Jake's performance was often overlooked? (Even though we all know it was integral to the movie.) I'll be happy if "Zodiac" is a fine ensemble piece, since I just want Jake to appear in another excellent movie. But I'd like to see him, most specifically, get some more recognition.

I'm sure that Jake's character is placed in a lot of tense, nerve-wracking situations during the course of "Zodiac." With others who have posted here, I also feel that he should relax by taking long, steamy showers. He should just be standing there while gallons of hot water cascade soothingly down the length of his beautiful naked body. But somehow I feel that Fincher isn't going to indulge me on this one. I really doubt he's attuned to the beauty of Gyllenhaal as a camera object.

only1annabel said...

I've just got the internet in my new uni house and at long last, I was having JW withdrawal symptoms...don't go cold turkey agents!!
I've missed so much, our Jake is an uncle! Can't wait to see what she looks like and what Jake looks like holding her...be still my beating heart! Poppa G had a birthday!
As for this new Zodiac picture...yippee! He looks damn good even if he is meant to be a geeky cartoonist or whatever. Jake, geeky...NEVER!

Anonymous said...

I know it has been corrected, but the shirt issue is crucial. BBM Jack, that siren of sex, wore dark, richly colored shirts--two jean shirts on the mountain and the red reunion number--and that's just the first half of the move. This washed out check is definitely the Ennis look. Just saying in case you're dressing up as a good spirit for Hallowed Eve.

Anonymous said...

Period wise... (early 70's?)
Downey's hair is right...but goatee no, jacket no
Jake? hair too short, ears exposed...clothes look
early 80's...jeans to the office was considered way too casual in most places.
Too many natural fibers here...polyester was the rage...No iron easy care...

The typewritter is correct.

Prophecy Girl said...

I had this whole bit written out about how Robert Graysmith went through Ennis Del Mar's closet, but then I thought everyone would think I was making a veiled gay reference when I was really just talking about the shirt. Apparently we've bonded to the point that we all think exactly alike now. Or maybe it's just the JW brainwashing. ;)

green said...

But here is my question....what's going on with the two guys in the background!?!?

Photo caption - from DB forum:

Man in background: It’s all right. It’s all right.

Jake (thinks): Get a tent, will ya?

Anonymous said...

Beards,mustaches and sideburns were common on hip guys, clean shaven on most.... but not goatees.

Anneka's Alias said...

Damn. I didn't even notice I was missing! Thanks for pointing that out. Sob sob.

Kendra said...

I like Jake's addition to the banner, a nice male touch. Anneka, we miss you on it. About "Zodiac" Robert Downey Jr. plays self-destructive ace reporter Paul Avery. I had a big crush on Robert in the 90's

Nothing Really Matters said...

You poor thing Anneka!

Dottieb said...

Zodiac is rated R for "some strong killings, language, drug material and brief sexual images."

Dottieb said...

Am I the only one whose computer doesn't show the banner? I get the three cartoons on the right side, but across the top it just says Jake, Forum, etc. I figure it must be one of my settings, but can't figure which!

Anonymous said...

If that cross-hair is the target of PG's gun, then she is aiming right at Jake's heart. How could she?

~DKBB~ said...

You know, that young man is gorgeous no matter WHAT he's wearing, but since I have a long-standing weakness for western shirts, I'm LOVIN' this picture! ;)

Anonymous said...

I thought I read somewhere that the pursuit of the Zodiac killer went on for years. Is it possible that this movie doesn't just deal with a brief moment, but spans several years? That could account for the "style" issues. Who cares! Jake looks so heartbreakingly beautiful all the effing time I can't stand it! Love him leaning on the desk. Love him in shower scenes, love him biking, swimming, walking, eating, with or without scruff, long hair, short hair, whatever! There is no one living who is like Jake.He affects me.

cina said...

I'm pretty positive it spans over several years, I think I read that somewhere (cannot remember where, sorry!). A more reliable evidence for that is the fact that there are different actors playing Robert Graysmith's kids at different ages, check IMDb. :-)

Prophecy Girl said...

'Tis only an illusion seeing as how I have strong anti-gun views and therefore the one I'm holding shoots only tranquilizers for combatting blatant stalkers and unathorized females. And the target is really on Jake Watch since we are hounded so mercilessly by our many, many enemies. Or it's possible I'm full of shit and that, in pursuit of aesthetic perfection, we never really thought about what that target was, er, targeting. :)

Anonymous said...

Graysmith is thinking to himself right now:
"DAM! I must be hot if they got Thee Sex playing me!"

Or is this guy even alive?

Is Jake sporting mini side chops - those sideburns are looking eerily suspicious and at the same time might hot.

Anneka's Alias said...

"Amazingly, he's even managed to make a bland '70's analog watch look hot. Unbelievable."

Does this mean Jake Watch needs a 'Watch Watch' to go with 'Sock Watch'?

pgcatz said...

I Love that Jake's picture is back on the top of the page. But also you cool looking girls are still there. Love the look, but Jake looks tacky in his movie stills. But he makes tacky and seedy look so sexy.

smurfette said...

anneka, you're back! yay! no pressure (masterpieces take time, i know), but any word on your review?

man, who was it that mentioned the leaning? jake has mastered the sexy lean. exhibit 1, bbm; 2, recent pic with the girl in the previous post; 3, this zodiac still. and many more, i'm sure. sigh.

nice anonymous said...

Yeah, he slouches, he lounges, he leans, he's drawn irresistably toward the horizontal, as if his body were saying: "I'm waaay too sexy to remain fully upright for very long."

And this posture also says: "Wouldn't I make a good centerfold? Imagine climbing on top of me.

(When I say "upright," of course, I am referring to Jake's posture. Don't go getting any other ideas.)

Anneka's Alias said...

"But any word on your review?"

Uh, yeah, the review...[edging closer to the window]

Before the end of the month. Otherwise what I've already written won't make sense and will have to be sent to wrap chips. Mmmmmmmm, chips.

Yeah,very funny!The only mildly interesting bit was seeing Dunst with her new boyfriend.

Anonymous said...

1:53: What new BF? You mean those pics posted dated 9/22 with her PA? Kristen has stated that she is single and dating no one at the moment and that would include members of her entourage like her PA, geez.

It will be interesting to see her this Friday at the NYFF screening for Marie Antoinette. Since she is single, will she turn up solo or with Jake who is on the VIP list??

Anonymous said...

Based on the fact that she is now widely quoted as saying he's a great guy but they are finished and there's no chance they'll get back together, and given that these comments recieved pretty wide coverage and they weren't part of the NOTW pastiche of an interview, but in reaction to the NOTW, I don't think she'll show up with Jake. GAWD! I love him leaning. I can't help but believe he knows EXACTLY what affect he has when he strikes a pose. So damned hot he ought to come with a caution sign around his neck.

Hope he shows up with a date LOL!!!

No,they were dated October 11th 2006.And IT IS HER new fella!
Anyway,why do you care if shes dating or single?

1:19PM: Um, today is October 11, you posted that link yesterday, Oct. 10. I clicked on the site and scrolled down to the post dated 10/10, the Kristen post. The post is making fun of an interview she made about going to Art school. The person who posted that for some reason also posted some pics of Kristen DATED 9/22/06!! It's Kristen, some chick and a guy who if i'm not mistaken has been ID'd previously as a Mr. Katz, a production asistant that worked on several of Jake's films and has acted as a sometime PA for both Jake and Kristen.

PS: You need to have your eyeys checked, how do you conclude that he is her "fella" from those pics unless you are reffering to pics that were just posted today and then maybe you can provide a link.

PSS: Kristen isn't seeing anyone at the moment, she is quoted as saying it.

1:21PM I hate to dissappoint you and break the news to you but that is Jakes buddy and sometime PA Mr. Katz and I can assure you he is not dating Ms. Dunst. Now go take your meds and your Kristen hate to another blog.
