New, Quality Posters and Trailers for UNDER THE SKIN and ENEMY

     Two films I am really excited for over the next couple of months are Jonathan Glazer's alien-on-Earth film Under the Skin and Denis Villeneuve's film of a José Saramago novel titled Enemy. Glazer's film will be a dark, surreal trip. Most of the reviews out of last years Toronto Film Festival were divisive, with many thinking the film was a challenge and something a bit too much, or just plain terrible. Other reviews stated it was a masterpiece, a word that gets thrown around way too carelessly. Scarlett Johansson plays an alien who seduces hitchhikers in Scotland where she then eats...tortures...etc. The trailer looks great and I really am excited to see this one. Anything that draws comparisons to Kubrick, Lynch and Von Trier has me hooked automatically. Surreal films are always going to be highly intriguing. The film will be released on April 4th.

    Denis Villeneuve's follow-up to his very well made Prisoners is the Kafka-esque thriller Enemy. Reuniting with one of his Prisoners stars, Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays a man who sees his double in a movie. He goes on a search to find the man that could be his double or is he does he discover he is just losing his mind. This film also played at last years Toronto Film Festival and received positive notices. The film looks great and I love the fact that Gyllenhaal is really testing himself with dark, deep roles as of late. The film will be released on March 14th and available on some online sites right now. 

Also, both of these posters are fantastic!!! A lot of thought went into both of them.
