WATCH: Jake Gyllenhaal Takes Apart His Marriage in the Touching New Trailer for ‘Demolition’
The striking leading man takes a sludge hammer to the past in this moving new trailer.
Jake Gyllenhaal plays a husband who has recently lost his wife and he simply can’t grieve in Demolition.
He portrays Davis, an investment banker writing an angry letter to a vending machine company because he lost his change in one of their machines. What begins as one, turns into several, candid, revealing letters. They find their way to Karen (Naomi Watts), a customer service rep who forms a bond with Gyllenhaal’s character as he tears down his past life.
Davis, along with Chris (Judah Lewis), Karen’s son, sets to destroying his home; smashing his countertop, knocking over his refrigerator, and breaking windows in search of some kind of catharsis, and maybe even hope.
Demolition arrives in select theaters on April 8, 2016.
