In Demolition, Jake Gyllenhaal portrays a successful investment banker who struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. He continues to unravel despite pressure from his father-in-law, portrayed by Chris Cooper. His character then forms an unlikely connection with a customer service representative and single mother, played by Naomi Watts, after writing a complaint letter to a vending machine company.

The trailer starts with Gyllenhaal unable to extract a pack of Peanut M&Ms and subsequently explaining that this was a problem because his wife had died 10 minutes earlier. The trailer ends with a bulldozer knocking down his house.

"You can buy almost anything on e-Bay," he jokes about the bulldozer.

The film is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee from a screenplay by Bryan Sipe. Vallee directed Dallas Buyers Club and Wild.

Demolition doesn't yet have an Australian release date.
