From the looks of the title, you might be forgiven for thinking Nightcrawler is a standalone superhero movie, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your preference), Nightcrawler is an upcoming crime thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by screenwriter Dan Gilroy.
The story follows a young ambitious journalist who discovers the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. A new teaser trailer has just dropped for the film, and it certainly does things a bit differently. Check it out below:
[Nightcrawler](movie:938302) will be the directorial debut of Gilroy, who previously made his name writing screenplays for movies such as Real Steel and The Bourne Legacy.

Currently, Nightcrawler is expected to release on October 17, 2014.
