The first trailer for Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club, Wild) has landed just ahead of its opening of the 40th Toronto International Film Festival.

[box type=”shadow” align=”alignleft” class=”” width=””]Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (Chris Cooper) to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (Naomi Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.[/box]

Demolition hits theaters April 8, 2016 from Fox Searchlight.
