Repetitious Red Poster for Jake Gyllenhaal & Denis Villeneuve's 'Enemy'
You can't escape your self. I'm surprised and kind of excited to report we have a rather impressive poster to start off the New Year right when it comes to poster art. A unique, very red poster for Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve's other film with Jake Gyllenhaal, titled Enemy, has debuted via IMPAwards. Adapted from another novel called The Double (not related to Richard Ayoade's film) the story is about a man who seeks out his exact look-alike after spotting him in a movie. The cast also includes Mélanie Laurent, Isabella Rossellini and Sarah Gadon, but it's only Jake Gyllenhaal over and over on this poster. There was a trailer for this film once, but it was pulled, now we're waiting for the real one from A24. Until then, check this out.
Here's the brand new poster for Denis Villeneuve's Enemy, first found on IMPAwards (click for high res):
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.
