Nightcrawler is nuts.
It's the story of an ambitious guy (Jake Gyllenhaal) who wants to get noticed. So he starts cruising the streets of L.A. looking for footage to sell to the news networks. When it turns out that violence and carnage sells, he begins to build a business around capturing people at their worst.
The film itself comes from Dan Gilroy the writer of The Bourne Legacy and The Fall and its a constantly surprising mix of thriller elements with off kilter humour and an incredible central performance by Gyllenhaal. And that mix of tones is captured perfectly in this over the top, red band trailer.
Those pull quotes are amazing.
Nightcrawleralso stars Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed andis in cinemas everywhere from the 31st of October 2014.
