The film set to hit theaters on October 31, Open Road Films has today debuted both a new trailer and a new poster for writer/director Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmad. Check out the trailer in the player below and the poster in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page.
Nightcrawler offers 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.
