Buzz For the Buzzsaw

If you've read any of my posts on Jake Gyllenhaal's upcoming re-team with his Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy you've probably noticed my inability to classify what Velvet Buzzsaw is - they've kept the details pretty mum but we knew it was a thriller of some sort. I was not however expecting that the first trailer would reveal the thing to be a full on horror movie! Evil paintings!

I half-expected Vigo the Carpathian to show up! I was also pleasantly surprised by all the shirtless shots of Jake in the trailer, although a little less surprised than I was by the horror thing -- they got a movie to sell and Shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal sells movies. 

Anyway as you can understand, after watching this trailer, full of monstrous sculptures devouring Toni Collette and being a little bit weirdly sexually invasive with a half-naked Billy Magnussen...

... Velvet Buzzsaw just leapt enthusiastically to the tippy top of my 2019 watch-list. It was already up there but now it's like Mount Olympus up there. It's got bronze underoos and lightning bolts it's so absolutely up there. Here's the trailer:

Velvet Buzzsaw hits Netflix on February 1st!
