Watch the Nocturnal Animals Trailer If You Like Looking at Amy Adams in Nice Clothes and Jake Gyllenhaal Without Them

By

This fall, the world has been gifted with two Amy Adams movies: One where she tries to communicate with aliens, and another where she tries to communicate with Jake Gyllenhaal. The latter, Nocturnal Animals, from designer turned director Tom Ford (A Single Man), stars Adams as a fashionable insomniac who receives a manuscript from her ex-husband (Gyllenhaal) that tells the story of a family that's ambushed in Texas. The thriller flits back and forth between Adams's glitzy Los Angeles life with Armie Hammer and the plot of the manuscript, which features Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Isla Fisher (playing a fictional Adams, of course). Nocturnal Animals recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and will premiere in select theaters November 18. Watch the film's full, tense trailer above, with its first teaser below. A movie about Amy Adams reading books has never looked so compelling.
