Last fall, it was announced that author Margot Lee Shetterly’s book, "Hidden Figures," which hasn't actually been published yet (but will be this year via HarperCollins), was been optioned for Ted Melfi to direct (he's the director of 2014's acclaimed dramedy "St. Vincent," which starred Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, and Naomi WattsTerrence Howard played a supporting role in the film, which was Melfi's feature directorial debut).

Watch Jake Gyllenhaal Take Apart His Life in This Demolition Trailer

4 February 2016 11:06 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jake Gyllenhaal is definitely an actor with an eye for interesting roles. More recently, he's done wonders with films like EnemyPrisoners, Nightcrawler, and he even had a bit of a stand out performance in the movie Everest. Given his talent and tendency to pick out spectacular roles, it was a given that he'd end up working with Jean-Marc Valée, the man who's directed such great films as Dallas Buyers Clubs and Wild, and he's done just that with the film Demolition, which follows Jake Gyllenhaal's character following the death of his wife.

This picture may seem vaguely familiar, because we got a trailer for it about four months back, which was around the same time the film opened the Toronto International Film Festival. Well now we got a new trailer for the picture's impending release to the public.

Check it out below!

Demolition's official synopsis is as »
