Nightmarish Trailer for Netflix's Upcoming Art-Themed Horror Thriller VELVET BUZZSAW with Jake Gyllenhaal
“Something truly goddamn strange is going on!”
I didn’t really know what to expect from this trailer for Netflix’s Velvet Buzzsaw when I first started watching it. I was like, “Oh! Jake Gyllenhaal plays an awkward and hardcore art critic. That’s interesting.” Then it went ahead and took a horrific turn that I wasn’t expecting as a collection of art he comes across begins to viciously attacking him and other people!
This trailer caught me off guard and took me completely by surprise. I loved what I saw in it ,and I’m pretty excited to watch how this nightmare unfolds.
The movie comes from director director Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler) and also has a great supporting cast that includes Toni Collette, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer, Daveed Diggs, Billy Magnussen, and John Malkovich. Here’s the synopsis:
In the cutthroat world of fine-art trading and representation, up-and-coming agent Josephina (Zawe Ashton) stumbles across a secret weapon: hundreds of dazzling paintings left behind after an elderly tenant in her building dies. Ignoring the instructions the clandestine artist left to destroy his work, she promptly starts circulating the paintings, which soon attract the attention of the heavy hitters around her—including her boss Rhodora (Rene Russo), art critic (and Josephina’s sometime lover) Morf (Jake Gyllenhaal), and competing collectors, managers, and curators like Bryson (Billy Magnussen) and Gretchen (Toni Collette). Yet as the deceased artist’s portraits gain posthumous acclaim, they also awaken something imperceptible and sinister that threatens to punish those who have profited from his work.
Velvet Buzzsaw is set to make its world premiere at Sundance before it hits Netflix on February 1, 2019.
