Wicked Set of Colorful Alternate Posters for Gyllenhaal's 'Nightcrawler'
The City Shines Brightest at Night. Ain't that the truth? Described as "pulp fiction cinema at its finest", Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler is one of those out-of-nowhere sleeper hits that seems to be hitting a certain note with some people. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a "driven young man" in Los Angeles who takes on the job of freelance late-night crime journalism, speeding to crime scenes to capture footage and sell it to local news stations. To promote the film, ShortList has put together a set of artistic posters made by various designers & illustrators and they're damn good (I love the first and last one). Always love seeing great art for a great movie, and this is one of those under-the-radar movies we fully support. View eight posters below.

Mike Ryan calls it "one of my favorite movies of the year". From his review: "Gyllenhaal gives what just may be the most interesting performance of his career. Lou Bloom is despicable, yet we find ourselves rooting for Lou Bloom. There’s an intense charisma on display here that I’ve never quite seen out of Gyllenhaal before."
Nightcrawler is written and directed by Dan Gilroy (screenwriter of Two for the Money, Real Steel and The Bourne Legacy) making his feature directing debut. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Open Road Films releases the film on October 31st. See the first trailer.
