Nightcrawler: Jake Gyllenhaal Commands in Darker than Night Thriller

“Nightcrawler,” the new Jake Gyllenhaal nocturnal thriller should pull in between $10 million to $11 million when it bows on 2,766 screens, this Friay, Halooween.

The picture focuses on the extreme lengths an amoral crime journalist, played by Gyllenhaal, will go to in order to land a blood splattered scoop.

Reviews have been strong with critics lauding Gyllenhaal’s twisty performance.

Tough not a horror film, “Nightcrawler’s” thriller underpinnings should be in keeping with the holiday spirit.

Open Road is distributing the film, which it acquired out of the market at the 2014 Cannes Film Fest.
