A brand new trailer has been released for acclaimed Canadian director Denis Villeneuve's latest film, Enemy (2013). Based on José Saramago's novel, Enemy stars Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko), Mélanie Laurent (The Round Up), Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis), and Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet). Currently, the film is set to open in theaters across the United States on March 14th.
Last year, Enemy had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Official synopsis (courtesy of TIFF): Brilliantly adapted from the late Nobel Prize-winning author José Saramago's 2002 novel The Double, the latest from the Academy Award-nominated Denis Villeneuve 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 Bell (Jake 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, an actor named Anthony Clair, 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.
