Trippy red-band teaser and new featurette for Enemy with Jake Gyllenhaal
Director Denis Villeneuve made a splash last year with PRISONERS, starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal and wasted no time with his follow-up film, ENEMY, which actually debuted along with PRISONERS at TIFF. Villeneuve reunites with Gyllenhaal for the pic, which is a suspense thriller that takes on the classic Doppelganger theme. Co-starring Melanie Laurent (INGLORIOUS BASTERDS), Sarah Gadon (COSMOPOLIS), and Isabella Rossellini, we now have a new red-band NSFW teaser for the flick, which is really cool, trippy, and hypnotic, as well as a featurette on the aforementioned women from the film.
The women of ENEMY:
Here's the synopsis:
Enemy tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, an actor living with his pregnant wife Helen (Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle. The film is a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller about duality and identity, where in the end only one man will survive.
The more I see of this, the more I want...to see more. Our own Chris Bumbray enjoyed the film quite a bit at TIFF (his review here) and it looks to be another check in the box for Villeneuve, who is definitely a talent to watch. My hope is that he'll continue to climb the ranks and keep churning out the high caliber work. Gyllenhaal looks to be taking a similar route as well, choosing projects that are more befitting to him as an actor, rather than attempting to take every commerical role that comes his way.
ENEMY will have a limited theatrical run on March 14, 2014.
