New Trailer for Nightcrawler: The City Shines Brightest at Night

In the new trailer for the upcoming film Nightcrawler, Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, an aspiring journalist who speeds around the the streets of Los Angeles in the middle of the night looking to get to the scene of the crime before anyone else. Gyllenhaal conveys an intensity in this voice-overed trailer, but it's not the same type of intensity he's used in some of his recent films like Prisoners and End of Watch. I found myself suspicious of Gyllenhaal's character, comparing him to Scott Templeton in Season 5 of The Wire. And my suspicions were furthered by the last shot of the trailer, a long take on Gyllenhaal's face as he puts on a creepy smile. Nightcrawler hits theaters October 17.
