Open Road Films, like most studios or producers, are wasting no time. After yesterday’s Toronto International Film Festival announcement, the trailers and press materials for each film have come pouring in fast and furious. And so that means, the first trailer for “Nightcrawler” has arrived starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

The movie is the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, the brother Tony Gilroy and co-writer “The Bourne Legacy,” but a screenwriter and producer who’s had a long and rich career in Hollywood for more than two decades (he co-wrote the Dennis Hopper-directed comedy “Chasers,” the 1992 thriller “Freejack” and Gilroy was also one of the many writers to contribute to unmade Superman film “Superman Lives.” The movie is a thriller set in the underground world of crime reporting in Los Angeles. A viral teaser with a gaunt and unemployed Gyllenhaal surfaced over the weekend. Here’s the official synopsis.

    Synopsis: NIGHTCRAWLER is 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.

"Nightcrawler" co-stars Rene Russo, Bill Paxton, Riz Ahmed and lands in theaters October 17  October 31st. The movie will make its world premiere at TIFF this September. Watch the trailer below. Poster via HuffPo.
