Jake Gyllenhaal in Trailer for DEMOLITION (Video)
Jake Gyllenhaal is no stranger to unique, refreshing dramas – most notably, as a live-by-night creep in 2014’s Nightcrawler. Gyllenhaal frequently picks interesting films, and we have the trailer for his latest – Demolition – for you below:
In Demolition, a successful investment banker, Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father-in-law (Chris Cooper) to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (Naomi Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two strangers form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.
Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, acclaimed director of Oscar-darlings Dallas Buyers Club and Wild, Demolition is presented by Fox Searchlight and smashes into theaters April 8, 2016.
