Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for their romantic spy comedy, Duplicity, and it can't help but feel like Michael Clayton with a whole bunch of comedy thrown in.
Oscar winner Julia Roberts and Clive Owen reunite for Duplicity, from writer/director Tony Gilroy.
In the film, they star as spies-turned-corporate operatives in the midst of a clandestine love affair. When they find themselves embroiled in a high-stakes espionage game, they discover the toughest part of the job is deciding how much to trust the one you love.
CIA officer Claire Stenwick (Roberts) and MI6 agent Ray Koval (Owen) have left the world of government intelligence to cash in on the highly profitable cold war raging between two rival multinational corporations. Their mission? Secure the formula for a product that will bring a fortune to the company that patents it first.
I think the last time we saw Owen and Roberts on screen together they were discussing how somebody's semen tasted. Awkward, I know. Fortunately that conversation gets left out in Duplicity, though the two are taking a second shot at love.
