Jake Gyllenhaal Is As Creepy As His Title Suggests In The ‘Nightcrawler’ Trailer

The heartthrob Jake Gyllenhaal you know and love is no more. The new JG, the one starring Nightcrawler, is an ambitious weirdo fumbling to create a sense of purpose for himself. He does that by photographing crime scenes that he’s manipulated.

We posted a more quirky version of the sell a few days back, and now we’ve got the full trailer.

Not the most noble pursuit, but it sounds like a pretty strong premise, and he’s selling his character pretty damn well in this trailer.

Set up like a job interview pitch, Gyllenhaal narrates the trailer and talks about why he’s the right guy for the job, spouting off motivational jargon. It’s enough to make you want to take a shower, which seems to be the point.

Nightcrawler hits theaters October 17th.
