Jake Gyllenhaal is definitely an actor with an eye for interesting roles. More recently, he's done wonders with films like ENEMY, PRISONERS, NIGHTCRAWLER, and he even had a bit of a stand out performance in the movie EVEREST. Given his talent and tendency to pick out spectacular roles, it was a given that he'd end up working with Jean-Marc Valée, the man who's directed such great films as DALLAS BUYERS CLUBS and WILD, and he's done just that with the film DEMOLITION, which follows Jake Gyllenhaal's character following the death of his wife.
This picture may seem vaguely familiar, because we got a trailer for it about four months back, which was around the same time the film opened the Toronto International Film Festival. Well now we got a new trailer for the picture's impending release to the public.
Check it out below!
DEMOLITION's official synopsis is as follows:
"Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (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 form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew."
DEMOLITION hits theaters on April 8, 2016, but will premiere in the US at SXSW before that around mid-March.
