Famous fashion designer Tom Ford is back in the directorial seat with the upcoming Nocturnal Animals. The teaser trailer for the film has been released and it looks like a must-watch.

Tom Ford directed the critically acclaimed A Single Man back in 2009. It got Colin Firth an Oscar nomination for playing a depressed gay professor. Now he is back with Nocturnal Animals. The upcoming film stars Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Amy and Jake play the role of a divorced couple. Secrets start to be revealed when Jake’s character, Tony, writes a novel. He dedicates it to his ex-wife Susan (Amy Adams). As she continues to read the story, Susan thinks that the novel is actually a tale of revenge. As the plot progresses both Tony and Susan discover dark truths about themselves and each other.

Check out the chilling trailer!

Nocturnal Animals has already won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2016 Venice International Film Festival. It has been described as “a haunting romantic thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption.”

Nocturnal Animals will be released in the U.S. on the 18th of November 2016 in select theaters. It will receive a wider nationwide release on 9th December 2016. Focus Features will be distributing the film. It is based on a 1993 novel titled Tony and Susan by Austin Wright. Tom Ford is credited for being the director as well as for writing the screenplay.

I don’t know about you all. But just from the trailer, I can tell that Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal have a very good chance of getting Oscar nominations for their roles.
