Movies: Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal Anchor Tense 'Prisoners'

  Prisoners-freakout
Hugh gets his very own "IS THAT MY DAUGHTER IN THERE" Mystic River-style freakout

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

Thanksgiving in movies is usually overstuffed with dysfunction and hostility. Who can digest from all the bile at home? That's not the case in PRISONERS, the new dramatic thriller from undersung Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies), which is more retrograde in its approach with the family unit as something sacred and continually under attack. Despite the occassional interjection of ominous music (shut up Jóhannsson... there's plenty of time for your score later!) and an initially drab grey color palette, things seem realistically jovial at this get together.

The Dovers (Hugh Jackman + Maria Bello) are celebrating the holiday at the home of the Birches (Terrence Howard + Viola Davis) just down the street -- close enough to walk -- as they clearly do every year (or perhaps they trade off). The parents are realistically both amused and vaguely annoyed by their children, attentive but 'don't bother me' tired. It's only when the film leave the homes of the Dovers or Birches that there's trouble brewing... somethings just off. Why did the movie open with a father/son hunting trip? Why is that strange RV parked on the road? Where did Anna's (Hugh's daughter) red emergency whistle go?

Are Joy and Anna back yet? The two youngest children just went back to the Dovers to grab that red emergency whistle they wanted to p... ohmygod where are Joy and Anna?

Hugh Jackman Claims To Role-Play As Wolverine In The Sack

Hugh Jackman Wolverine

Cue the gay nerd fantasies...

Jackman and wife Deborrah Lee-Furness supposedly "confessed" this fact to The Sun yesterday. Lee-Furness told the tabloid that her husband makes use of the Wolverine costume, claws and all, all around the house. “Oh my God, it’s dreadful! Always with the claws. I’m like, ‘Mix the salad. Put them to use, come on!’” Jackman then quipped, "The sheets we go through...”

Queerty added that "perhaps it’s merely a ploy to generate more attention for The Wolverine‘s release, or maybe it just another attempt to end the gay rumors." Perhaps they have a point. After all, any lesbian can tell you that, when it comes to claws and lady-parts, the shorter the better. But, at the end of the day, who cares if it's true or not as long as the two are happy?

This writer cares, for one. If for no other reason, it makes for a nice visual. Sploosh...


Hugh Jackman Bares It All At Japanese Hot Spring

Wolverine in water

While in Japan and shooting his upcoming movie The Wolverine, Hugh Jackman committed a small social faux pas. He would relax in the hot springs, or "onsen", during some of the breaks and use the small towel he was given to regulate his body temperature by soaking it in cold water and placing it on his head while he bathed. After getting some awkward stares, one of the fellow bathers pointed out what the towel was supposed to be used for:

"I was feeling uncomfortable and finally this guy in the tub grunts and points to my head and then grunts and points to my private parts. Finally I realised the towel was meant to be covering my privates and I'd spent about an hour just waltzing around this place with this thing in one hand and a beer in my other hand!" 

Sadly, no pictures were taken to document the event.

In what has become a biannual event, Hugh Jackman and his wife  Deborra-Lee Furness appeared on Australia's 60 Minutes to roll out complaints about how tired they are of the gay rumors that follow Jackman.

Said Jackman: "If I was [gay], I would be...It's to me not the most interesting thing about a person anyway, but I do get frustrated for Deb, because I see Deb go 'Ah, this is just crazy'."

Said Furness: "It is just wrong, it's like, it's a lie...It's just offensive. If he was gay, fine, he would say he's gay. It has gotten so out of whack … it's stupid, and yeah, it's annoying, because it's not true."
