It is not easy to market a movie in 2016. Show too much in a trailer, people will blast you for giving away all the best stuff. Show too little and you risk alienating an audience that can’t quite figure you out. Every now and then, though, a movie finds a way to show off a ton of vivid imagery without actually spoiling all of its secrets. That’s the case with Nocturnal Animals, a new thriller whose twisty mystery is its greatest selling point.
Written and directed by Tom Ford (A Single Man), Nocturnal Animals boasts a ridiculously talented cast including Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough, and Michael Sheen. Its intense mood had audiences buzzing out of its film festival run this past fall, and it’s now certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes ahead of hitting theaters on November 18, 2016.
So what is Nocturnal Animals actually about? Well, we’ve got an exclusive clip of the cast and crew skillfully setting everything up without giving anything away. Check it out.
