“Something truly goddamn strange in going on” in Netflix’s first trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw, the art horror film which reteams its stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo with Nightcrawler writer-director Dan Gilroy. Its features an all-star cast including Toni Collette, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer, Daveed Diggs, Billy Magnussen, and John Malkovich.
Written and directed by Gilroy, the satirical thriller is set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles, where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.

As Deadline reported back in 2017, Scott Stuber’s feature film division at Netflix had outbid multiple buyers for this title. This marks the third directorial outing for the accomplished screenwriter and former reporter, following 2017’s Denzel Washington-starring legal drama Roman J. Israel, Esq.
The pic is slated to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this month and will be available to stream February 1.
