Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler isn’t even a comedy, but this clever new red trailer had me laughing more than any other promo I’ve seen in a while. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Lou Bloom, a guy desperate to score a job. While on the hunt, Lou stumbles across a “nightcrawler,” someone who captures footage of fires, murders and all sorts of chaos to sell to new stations and Lou comes to the conclusion that the gig is perfect for him.
Nightcrawler is due in theaters on October 31st and in honor of the release, Open Road Films just unveiled a brand new trailer for the movie. As this is likely one of the last promos we’ll get, naturally, this Nightcrawler red band trailer is loaded with critic quotes. They’re all glowing, but not in the way one might expect. This is a see it to believe it kind of piece so hit the jump to check it out and click here to give Matt’s Nightcrawler review a read.
