2015-09-09 08:01

Cape Town - Jake Gyllenhaal is without a doubt one of the sexiest leading men in Hollywood right now.

With his rugged good looks and incredible talent he’s winning not only awards but hearts as well.

Jake, who just blew us away in the gut-punching flick Southpaw, already has a new movie that promises to have fans flocking to theatres.

In Demolition, Jake plays the role of a successful investment banker, Davis, who struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash.

Despite pressure from his father-in-law (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 strangers form an unlikely connection.

With the help of Karen and her son (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.

The director of the film, Jean-Marc Vallée, is best known for his work on Dallas Buyers Club and Wild.
