Trailer of the Week: Jake Gyllenhaal, Spiders and Sex in NSFW 'Enemy' Teaser

A24 has dropped an edgy, new trailer for "Enemy," a psychological thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is an adaptation of José Saramago's 2002 novel "The Double" and re-teams Gyllenhaal with "Prisoners" director Dennis Villeneuve.

"Enemy" centers on Adam Bell, a university professor who, while watching a film, happens to notice that one of the actors onscreen possesses a striking resemblance to his own. Bell becomes consumed with his doppelgänger -- an actor by the name of Anthony Claire -- and decides to seek him out. Worlds collide, and, of course, chaos ensues.

For more indie film trailers check out Indiewire's trailer page, sponsored by Sony Pictures Classics.

The trailer consists of a montage that strings together what appears to be a string of small climaxes -- both sexual and dramatic -- occurring at various points throughout the film. The editing, along with the use of backlighting, evoke a surreal quality that is reminiscent of the films of Man Ray and Salvador Dalí.

"Enemy" is currently available to stream on DirecTV and will receive a limited release on March 14.
