We’ve been highly anticipating Dan Gilroy’s next feature film Velvet Buzzsaw as the thriller takes place in the high-end art world and we’ve been waiting patiently to see the director reunite with his Nightcrawler stars, Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo for the upcoming release.
The film’s trailer takes a massive turn towards a horror film that I’m not sure people were expecting and I think that is thanks to the limited information out there on Velvet Buzzsaw while it was filming and we’re excited to finally be able to check it out. I’m sort of getting Nicolas Winding Refn/Neon Demon vibes, but the film seems to be a little more coherent than that and is more than just a collection of stunning visuals.
You can watch the newly released trailer below.
Velvet Buzzsaw is a thriller 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. Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer, Daveed Diggs, Billy Magnussen, and John Malkovich star in the new mind-bending film written and directed by Dan Gilroy.
Velvet Buzz will be released on February 1st on Netflix and in select theaters.
