Focus Features has unveiled the first trailer for ‘Nocturnal Animals’, the long-awaited follow-up film from ‘A Single Man’ filmmaker Tom Ford. Based on the Austin Wright novel Tony and Susan, the film stars Amy Adams as a successful art dealer whose former flame (Jake Gyllenhaal) sends her an intense and thrilling manuscript for a novel inspired by their relationship. The story plays out in two parts, switching from Adams and her life in present day to the story that’s being told in the manuscript, aptly named Nocturnal Animals.
Written and directed by Ford, the film also stars Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Karl Glusman, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough, and Michael Sheen. Nocturnal Animals opens in limited release on November 18th, expands further on November 23rd, and opens wide on December 9th.
