The Mann Chinese Theater in LA was hopping with celebrities last night in attendance for three big Jerry Bruckheimer events. The afternoon kicked off with Jerry's Hollywood Walk of Fame dedication followed by the Prince of Persia premiere while his films Armageddon, Pirates of the Caribbean, and National Treasure simultaneously screened. Orlando Bloom spoke to the audience at the Pirates screening while Justin Bartha and Jon Voight shared their experiences with the National Treasure franchise. Stars from the present and past mingled during the events — Prince of Persia star Jake Gyllenhaal even posed with Top Gun legend Tom Cruise. The fun continued into the night when the party moved to the Hollywood & Highland Ballroom, where Jake hopefully showed off some of those famous dance moves.

Jake Gyllenhaal wore a polka-dot tie to triumphantly bring his Prince of Persia to LA last night. He was full of smiles and happy to sign autographs between posing with his beautiful costar Gemma Arterton. Jake has already been around the world with the movie including when they managed to premiere it in three cities in one evening. Jake also famously showed off his dance moves during his stop in Russia. Now, they're back in the states for one more big push before the May 27 release. Gemma kept things light by revealing her thoughts on Jake's kissing skills. The Grauman's Chinese Theatre red carpet wasn't just about the screening, however since Prince of Persia's producer Jerry Bruckheimer had his hand and footprint ceremony!
Tom Cruise also came out to honor Jerry, his Top Gun producer, who is simultaneously being celebrated with a series of star-studded screenings of his films this week. Nicolas Cage, Jon Voight, Ben Kingsley, and Billy Bob Thornton rounded out the group of guys. Tom is on his own promotional tour for Knight and Day starting with last week's Oprah so we'll be seeing a lot more of that famous grin over the next month.

Jake Gyllenhaal and his Prince of Persia costar Gemma Arterton brought their press tour from London to Moscow, where they were up this morning for a photocall alongside producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Mike Newell. The gang was last in the UK for their big world premiere, after Jake spent the weekend doing interviews during the press junket. Conversation turned from the film to Jake's love life while he chatted with Extra and said, "Would it be strange if I said no, I'm not looking? Yes, I'm looking. I have two eyes." For now, though, Jake is all about getting word out about his Summer blockbuster. There are more stops around the globe in store for Jake and Gemma, including LA for another screening next Monday.
Jake Gyllenhaal was the star of the show at last night's official premiere of Prince of Persia in London where he cozied up to his Valentino wearing leading lady Gemma Arterton. Jake and Gemma kept the celebration going right through to the afterparty, and he couldn't contain his cute grin. Jake has been in the UK for the past week doing press for the film while we've been gearing up for the May 28 release by relishing newly released stills and clips. The finished product is a few weeks away from theaters so meanwhile, all the shirtless Jake and promises of seeing a fun side of the actor are keeping our excitement levels high!

Earlier this week I got to show you my chat with Prince of Persia star Jake Gyllenhaal at this past weekend's Wondercon event, but another Disney movie was on everyone's lips: The Sorcerer's Apprentice. The re-imagining of the Fantasia sequence stars Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel, so naturally, when I grabbed director Jon Turteltaub, I wanted to get the scoop on those two. I also talked with super producer Jerry Bruckheimer about the importance of Wondercon and the early reactions to Apprentice and Prince of Persia. Watch it now!
Jake Gyllenhaal was front and center last night to see the LA Kings take on the San Jose Sharks at the Staples Center. The home team ended up losing to their visitors, but Jake seemed to enjoy himself nonetheless as he chatted with Prince of Persia producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the just-married Vince Vaughn. His evening out with the guys comes after a weekend of attending Golden Globes parties, including one on Friday where he apparently chatted up Jennifer Aniston. Jake's going to be among even more A-list company when he joins other leading men like Robert Pattinson for George Clooney's Haiti telethon.
