Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Enemy' Gets New, NSFW Trailer Featuring Lots of Sex and Spiders

Share

This years strangest micro movie trend is none other than people who look like other people, aka — doppelgängers. And one of the most anticipated look-a-like films of 2014 just got a new spot: Jake Gyllenhaal's Enemy just got a new trailer that's very sexy and very NSFW. The trailer features split-second shots of Gyllenhaal, a gorgeous and naked blonde (Inglorious Bastards' Mélanie Laurent), sprawling city landscapes and... spiders.

The film is based off the novel by Jose Saramago, and follows a depressed teacher (Gyllenhaal) who becomes increasing paranoid, thinking he's found his exact human double, and goes crazy trying to figure out who his doppelgänger is. The trailer presents a haunting and internal look at what his journey into insanity looks like, stimulating both the audience's sense of adventure and our most primal senses.

We last saw Gyllenhaal in a similarly twitchy role — that of Detective Loki in Prisoners, where he played opposite Hugh Jackman as a policeman hired to find two missing girls. This trailer is reminiscent of Prisoners' high-intensity suspense, but offers a more existential point of view.

"Enemy" will hit theatres March 14th. Watch the NSFW trailer below:
