Movies Jake Gyllenhaal Is SUPER Creepy In New 'Nightcrawler' Trailer By Jackie Willis 4:34 AM PDT, July 24, 2014 ETONLINE Jake Gyllenhaal will make your skin crawl in this new Nightcrawler trailer. The crime drama is about a young man, Lou Bloom (Gyllenhaal), who stumbles upon the underground world of Los Angeles freelance crime journalism, and his morals are quickly compromised. RELATED: Actors' Biggest Body Transformations For RolesThe 33-year-old actor lost an estimated 20 pounds for the role, which makes him extra creepy-- think Christian Bale as American Psycho character Patrick Bateman. Lou Bloom's motto (which is repeated throughout the trailer): "If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket." Nightcrawler hits theaters Oct. 17, 2014. Will you watch?
