The first full trailer has just arrived for the Sundance-winning drama "Whiplash," starring Miles Teller as an aspiring gifted jazz drummer named Andrew Neyman, who hopes to one day become a world-class percussionist. Holding his feet to the fire is Andrew's hard-to-please orchestra leader, Terence Fletcher (played by J.K. Simmons, in a strong performance that could earn him some recognition during this year's awards season). Terence wants Andrew to be "fantastic," but aggressively pushing Andrew's limits might have a detrimental effect on his personal life, including the relationships with his girlfriend (Melissa Benoist) and his father (Paul Reiser).

Written and directed by rising talent Damien Chazelle, "Whiplash" took home both the Grand Jury and Audience prizes at Sundance this year. The film is now set to have a limited theatrical run this fall, starting on October 10th.

Andrew Neyman is a 19-year-old jazz drummer, dreaming of greatness but unsure if his dream will ever come true. Haunted by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew is determined to rise to the top of the country's most elite music conservatory. One night, Terence Fletcher, a conductor equally known for his talent for teaching as he is for the terrifying method of his instruction, discovers Andrew practicing the drums. Even though Fletcher says very little to him that night, he ignites in Andrew a passion to achieve his goal. To Andrew's surprise, the next day, Fletcher requests that he be transferred into his band. This single act changes the young man's life forever...
