Hot Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal In ‘Nightcrawler’

Hot Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal In ‘Nightcrawler’“I believe that good things come to those who work their asses off,” Jake Gyllenhaal‘s Lou Bloom says in Nightcrawler. He’s the wide-eyed new kid on the scene of LA’s underground world of freelance crime tele-journalism, and he’ll do anything to get the shot and the story. To wit: Police are harassed and their cars chased and T-boned, amid other general mayhem. Rene Russo and Bill Paxton co-star in the directorial debut of The Bourne Legacy scribe Dan Gilroy, who also wrote the pic. Open Road acquired the thriller for about $4.5 million after a bidding war at Cannes, and it will hit theaters October 17 following its world premiere at Toronto. Check out the first trailer:
