Jake Gyllenhaal is absolutely brilliantly bonkers in his latest film, Nightcrawler.
We, in many ways, see it as a bookend to his last film that involved the seedier side of Los Angeles, End of Watch.
As you can see from the newly released red band trailer for Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal plays a man who will go to any lengths, break any rule and do absolutely anything to capture the most extreme horror happenings in the city of Los Angeles each night on camera for the 6 a.m. morning local news.
He hooks up with a local affiliate’s morning news producer, played with pristine power by Rene Russo, and the two drive their ratings up as Gyllenhaal’s videos get more and more daring, grim… and supremely popular.
Nightcrawler lands on October 31 and is easily one of the best of the year. Stay with Movie Fanatic all week for our exclusive video interviews with Gyllenhaal and Russo.
Watch End of Watch online and then prepare to witness a whole new level of great Gyllenhaal in action as another Los Angeles-based character later this week when Nightcrawler hits theaters.
