First Look: ‘Nightcrawler’ Trailer Starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal is hunting for a job in this first teaser trailer for the thriller Nightcrawler, written and directed by Dan Gilroy. In addition to Gyllenhaal, the cast includes Rene Russo, Bill Paxton, and Riz Ahmed.

Open Road Films is releasing Nightcrawler in theaters on October 17, 2014.

The Plot:

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.
