Watch: First Trailer for Miles Teller’s ‘Whiplash’

On the same day as the release of highly-anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer, Sony Classics has unveiled the first official trailer for “Whiplash,” starring Miles Teller as a young drummer and J.K. Simmons as his abusive instructor.

The film won both the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and played in the Directors Fortnight at Cannes. It’s scheduled to be screened in the Special Presentations section at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening in theaters on Oct. 10.

The trailer includes Simmons punishing Teller verbally — “If you deliberately sabotage my band, I will gut you like a pig” — and giving him a loud unseen slap.
