The full trailer for the upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal led thriller, [Nightcrawler](movie:938302), has just dropped. The film seems like a mixture of The King of Comedy and if Jude Law's character from Road to Perdition had a spin-off movie.
He looks C.R.A.Z.Y. in this movie:
Gyllenhaal's a bit skinnier, a bit greasier and a bit more desperate than usual. We all know that he's got the acting chops but I think a change up of his image will just lift his performance that bit more. He reportedly lost more than 20 lbs to play the part.
Check out the trailer below:
NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.
Also starring Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed, the movie opens October 17. Are you looking forward to this?
A skinny creepy Gyllenhaal?
