Tom Ford’s latest revenge thriller “Nocturnal Animals” took home the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Venice Film Festival and has been screening all week at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film stars Amy Adams as Susan, a successful art gallery who’s rattled by the arrival of a manuscript written by her estranged ex-husband Tony (Jake Gyllenhaal). As she dives deeper into the nightmarish tale, she’s forced to confront her past and the nature of her own reality. The film co-stars Michael Shannon (“Midnight Special”), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Nowhere Boy”), Isla Fisher (“The Great Gatsby”), Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”), and more. Ahead of Focus Features’ official teaser trailer debut tomorrow, check out the sneak peak of that teaser below.
This is Ford’s second feature film. His first film “A Single Man” followed a day in the life of George Falconer (Colin Firth), a depressed, gay British college professor who plans to commit suicide. It garnered Firth an Oscar nominated for Best Actor. Ford previously gained recognition as the former creative director of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. In 2006, he launched his own “Tom Ford” label and has dressed numerous celebrities as well as Daniel Craig’s suits for the last three James Bond films.
“Nocturnal Animals” will be released in select cities on November 18th followed by a nationwide release on December 9th.
