Fresh from its premiere at the Venice Film Festival (where it won the second place trophy) and screenings at the Toronto Film Festival, here is the trailer for Nocturnal Animals, the newest from from fashion designer and director Tom Ford. His follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2009 film A Single Man features an excellent cast, with Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal as the two leads. Adams plays an art gallery owner who receives a manuscript from her ex-husband (Gyllenhaal) in which the character clearly inspired by her (and played by Isla Fisher in films from the book-within-the-film) meets a horrible fate.
There’s no doubting Tom Ford has an impeccable eye. The fashion designer-cum-film director knows how to dress people, and in his second feature Nocturnal Animals, he wastes no opportunity to aestheticize the sadness and cynicism of his well dressed cast.
Tom Ford’s long-awaited follow-up to A Single Man just premiered at TIFF, and the early reactions from critics have been rather glowing — that’s bittersweet news for fans of Ford, who will have to wait just a little longer to see the fashion designer and director’s latest project, Nocturnal Animals. Thankfully, these intriguingly stylish new character posters will help bide the time (kind of) until we can at least see the first trailer.
You’d think that Jake Gyllenhaal would be scared off of video game adaptations for good after the disaster that was Prince of Persia, but the actor is giving it another go with a new film based on Tom Clancy’s The Division. He may have a little help from another acclaimed actor, as Jessica Chastain is reportedly in talks to join the upcoming project, which Gyllenhaal is also producing.
Jake Gyllenhaal is getting back into video game blockbusters.

It’s 2003. Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man has just become the biggest movie of the year, grossing over $400 million (at the time, one of only four films to achieve that feat). Maguire had just wrapped filming on Seabiscuit, a prestige film that would go...
The second trailer for Demolition still doesn’t seem to be doing any favors for the latest film from Jean-Marc Vallee, the director who previously brought us critically acclaimed films Wild and Dallas Buyers Club. Still, with those credits under his belt and with the help of Jake Gyllenhaal, maybe there’s something special to be found in Demolition yet.
Netflix just keeps getting bigger and more ambitious.
