Another Excellent Poster for Gyllenhaal & Denis Villeneuve's 'Enemy'
"Transfixing. Fascinating. Spellbending." Take a look at this outstanding new poster for Denis Villeneuve's film Enemy, the other one with Jake Gyllenhaal that he directed, that's not Prisoners. We've been featuring this one for a while awaiting the trailer with some excellent posters in the past, including this repetitious red one and the original design from festivals. Now we have another, as A24 Films has released the latest poster that's all yellow, along with some vacant, drifting away faces. Eerie. Remind anyone of Cronenberg's Naked Lunch? It's just an impressive poster to start off 2014 right. Still waiting for a trailer, but I'm fine with this.
Brilliantly adapted from the late Nobel Prize-winning author José Saramago's 2002 novel The Double, the latest from Denis Villeneuve (Incendies, Prisoners) breathes new life into the doppelgänger tradition, with a hypnotic, haunting, surreal approach that reaffirms the Quebec director as one of our generation's most skilled storytellers. Adam (Gyllenhaal) is a glum, disheveled history professor, who seems disinterested even in sex with his beautiful girlfriend, Mary (Mélanie Laurent). Watching a movie on the recommendation of a colleague, Adam spots his double in a bit role, and decides to track him down—an adventure he quite relishes. The identical men meet, and their lives become bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined (via TIFF). Denis Villeneuve's Enemy was picked up by A24 Films at TIFF, and will arrive in theaters on March 14th.
