Duplicity or How it's a Closer Reunion!

I know there are some Julia haters out there. To them I say: shut it! 

I know, I know - I can get a bit testy when people I (heart) get picked on. But seriously, how can you hate on Julianne, Anna (x2), Vivian, Erin, Maggie, Shelby and Tess? In any case, that's not the point. The point is I'm digging this Ocean-esque trailer for Tony Gilroy's follow up to his Oscar nominated directorial debut Michael Clayton which starred George and gave Tilda her Oscar. (It seems Gilroy is slowly moving down the Ocean's cast from Matt- he wrote the Bourne movies, to George and here now with Julia - next? Brad, or maybe Casey, or Don?) Sure, I wish it had a more inspired title but you gotta give it props for using Goldfrapp in the trailer and for employing the criminally underused Carrie Preston (love her in Transamerica).

Best line in the trailer? "Do you have any idea how far my ass was hanging out because of you?" (and here's hoping Clive means that literally...)

Best Closer-esque badinage: 
Julia: If I told you I loved you, would it make a difference?
Clive: If you told me or if I believed you?

As Lucille Bluth put it-"If that's a veiled criticism of me. I won't hear it and I won't respond to it."

Wow, I'm really surprised as to how good this looks! I was a bit underwhelmed by Michael Clayton, Wilkinson and Swinton aside, but Duplicity looks fun and light. Can't wait for this one now!
