One of the big Sundance hits of this year that is also getting strong Oscar buzz is writer-director Damien Chazelle's jazz drummer drama "Whiplash." Both of its stars, Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, have been showered with accolades, and Simmons seems like a lock for an acting nomination. He plays a ferocious music instructor at a prestigious conservatory where Teller's character strives to win his approval, as well as boost his skills as a first-rate jazz drummer.

The film has started playing in a few theaters last Friday, but will expand to more cities through the rest of this month. In the meantime, you can have another peek at Teller's blood, sweat and tears by checking out this new international trailer, above.

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...
