A new Nightcrawler trailer has been released online, and it’s a bit more action-oriented than the ones we’ve seen before. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a young man who falls into the depths of L.A. crime journalism, and begins pushing the limits between covering the news and making it. The previous trailer made the movie look more like a psychological thriller while this new one goes more into the action-crime elements with car wrecks, crime scenes, and accusations of obstruction of justice. This is one of my must-see films at the Toronto International Film Festival, and I hope it reaches my high expectations.
Hit the jump to check out the new Nightcrawler trailer. The film opens October 31st, and also stars Bill Paxton, Rene Russo, and Riz Ahmed.

Here’s the official synopsis for Nightcrawler:
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 blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story.
