Whiplash Trailer Is Very Intense for a Movie About Jazz Drumming

After we called Whiplash "the Sundance Film Festival's Strongest Opener in Years," it went on to win both the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize at the festival. This is what all the hype was about. Opening October 10, the film features Miles Teller playing a young drummer aspiring for greatness and J.K. Simmons as his drill-sergeant-esque jazz-band conductor. If you don't get enough of Simmons screaming and hitting Teller here, may we direct you to the slap-filled clip we posted two months ago. And if that isn't enough of that stuff, there's also a Fifty Shades of Grey movie coming.
