Nightcrawler looks like it could be an interesting movie, even if we’re still not sure why Jake Gyllenhaal decided the skinny look was the way to go to star in it. Now a new trailer has arrived, which gives us our best look yet at the intriguing film.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Lou Bloom, an ambitious young man desperate for work, discovers the world of L.A. crime journalism. When Lou learns of a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles his way into the dangerous realm of night crawling, where a police siren wail means a possible windfall, and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Nina, a local TV news veteran, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant.’
Dan Gilroy write and directs, with a Toronto Film Festival premiere planned before an October 17th US release.
