The trailer for “Velvet Buzzsaw” is here and it’s pretty f***ing amazing :-) Buzzsaw sees Gilroy reuniting with Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo for another tale of creativity leading to terror and danger. It’s set set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles, where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price… In this case, literally paying with their lives. Gyllenhaal plays snobby art critic Morf Vandewalt, who discovers a new talent, only for the odd things to start happening around him. Does the artist have a connection to dark powers, or is it all in Morf’s head? Gilroy rounded up the likes of John Malkovich, Daveed Diggs and Tom Sturridge for the film, which will premiere later this month at the Sundance Film Festival before arriving on limited theatrical release and on Netflix on 1 February. Be aware that the trailer is a massive spoiler in terms of Toni’s character Gretchen, but it’s worth the watch. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
