A remake of a Danish film of the same name from 2018, The Guilty follows Gyllenhaal’s character of 911 dispatcher Joe Baylor over the course of a single day. The new trailer starts off by showing a series of irrelevant or prank calls made to the dispatch center, making for what would seem to be a slow day at the office. Things take a sudden and dire turn however when a woman in grave danger calls in, forcing Baylor to use every resource he can in order to save her. Netflix’s synopsis also teases a surprise twist to the plot, writing that “nothing is as it seems, and facing the truth is the only way out.”
Joining Gyllenhaal is the film’s writer Nic Pizzolatto — whose previous works include The Magnificent Seven and True Detective — as well as Southpaw veteran Antoine Fuqua as director. The Guilty arrives on Netflix on October 1.
