Jake Gyllenhaal experiences tense moments in the trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming film, The Guilty.
Netflix dropped the sneak peek Tuesday which shows Gyllenhaal trying to save an abducted mother on the phone while working as a 911 call operator.
The trailer starts out with the Nightcrawler actor taking various phone calls before a woman dials in crying. She’s pretending to speak to someone else, but instead is talking to the 911 operator.
“I just want to talk to you. I’m just out for a drive, sweetie, OK?” Gyllenhaal asks her if the person she’s with knows she’s talking to 911. The woman responds, “No.”

Gyllenhaal’s character realizes the woman has been abducted and manages to ask her a few other questions before she has to abruptly hang up.
The next scenes show a race against time as he tries to identify where the woman is and ways he can help before he takes matters into his own hands. The trailer warns the audience: “There’s more to the story than meets the eye.”
The Guilty is directed and produced by Fuqua. Gyllenhaal, Riva Marker, Kat Samick, Scott Greenberg, Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak, Svetlana Metkina, and David Haring are also producers of the film.
The screenwriter for the film is Nic Pizzolatto.
The Guilty is the American remake of the 2018 Danish thriller by the same name. The film premieres in select theaters Sept. 24 and on Netflix Oct. 1.
