‘Nocturnal Animals’ teaser offers first look at Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal thriller

Focus Features has released the first teaser-teaser-trailer for ‘Nocturnal Animals,’ a new romance-thriller starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. Joining them on-screen will be Michael Shannon and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Another teaser will be released this week, but it’s a great moment to add the film to your radar ahead of the project’s upcoming fall release.

The teaser offers a quick look at the film, which just screened at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Nocturnal Animals comes from writer/director Tom Ford (A Single Man), the winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival.

The story explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and themselves.

Also starring in the film are Isla Fisher, Karl Glusman, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough and Michael Sheen. The film is based on the novel Tony and Susan by Austin Wright, which is available on Amazon.com if you want to read the book before the adaptation hits theaters.

The film is set to hit select theaters on November 18, 2016.
