Here’s the brand new UK trailer for Oscar hopeful Whiplash. The movie is Produced by Jason Reitman and Helen Estabrook (who have worked previously on Up in the Air, Juno and more recently Men, Women and Children) and stars Miles Teller (Divergent), J.K. Simmons and is written and Directed by Damien Chazelle.

We were lucky enough to spend the morning with all of them at the press conference for the movie ahead of the premiere this evening (which we’ll also be at!). It’s smashing out 5* reviews across the board and is definitely one to keep an eye out for.

The movie is released in the UK 16th January and it’s definitely one you’re going to be hearing a lot more about. Keep your eyes peeled for our premiere interviews later this evening.

Andrew Neyman is an ambitious young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats. Terence Fletcher, an instructor equally known for his teaching talents as for his terrifying methods, leads the top jazz ensemble in the school. Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man’s life. Andrew’s passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher continues to push him to the brink of both his ability—and his sanity.
