Hitting theaters today is Denis Villeneuve‘s taut, entertaining kidnapping thriller Prisoners, which recently debuted to strong acclaim (including our own). Serving as his studio break-out following the Oscar-nominated drama Incendies, the helmer actually shot another film in between, which also debuted at Toronto International Film Festival.

Check out the promising first clip below, along with some stills and the first poster for the film also starring Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon and Isabella Rossellini. [Fotogramas]
Enemy will hit theaters next spring via A24 Films.
