The trailer for Nightcrawler starts out pretty normally.
Jake Gyllenhaal narrates, talks about the type of job he’s looking for, tells us he’s a hard-worker, photographs a traffic accident–then shit starts to get weird.
Nightcrawler definitely feels like a creepy movie, and super thin Jake seems more than up to the task. If you’ll recall, this is the movie that he lost all that weight for. And also the movie he broke his hand filming.
The trailer culminates with Jake’s character Lou Bloom repeating the phrase, “If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket.” Honestly I feel like I can’t give anything else away. You just need to watch the trailer. And once you’ve watched that, watch this teaser below posted by “Louis Bloom” on YouTube. You will be confused, intrigued and probably freaked out. Happy Wednesday!
