The trailer for the satirical thriller Velvet Buzzsaw will blow you away! Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Zawe Ashton, Natalia Dyer, John Malkovich, Daveed Diggs, Toni Collette, and Tom Sturridge already has piqued my interest!
Velvet Buzzsaw is set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.
The film directed by Dan Gilroy made his feature directorial debut with the critically acclaimed Nightcrawler, for which he received an Academy Award nomination for best original screenplay. His second film, Roman J. Israel, Esq., earned Denzel Washington an Academy Award nomination for best actor. Velvet Buzzsaw marks Gilroy’s third time directing his own original screenplay while also reuniting him with Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo.
Velvet Buzzsaw will make its premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, Jan 27th and will launch Netflix and in select theaters February 1st.
