Fox Searchlight Pictures has just released the new Demolition trailer, which you can check out below! The new drama from Dallas Buyers Club and Wild helmer Jean-Marc Vallée stars Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
In Demolition, Davis (Gyllenhaal) is a successful investment banker who struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (Chris Cooper) to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (Naomi Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.
Demolition is based on a Black List screenplay by Bryan Sipe, and is scheduled to hit theaters on April 8, 2016.
