Even the fashion world isn't exempt to the film industry's tendency to release two incredibly similar films about the same subject or person in the same year. In this case, Yves Saint Laurent gets another biopic after Jalil Lespert's, was released earlier this year.

The latest film, sporting a shorter name, Saint Laurent was directed by Bertrand Bonnello and stars Gaspard Ulliel as the titular character. Pierre Bergé, the late fashion designer's partner reportedly did not authorise the production, although Jalil's version received a nod from him.

Meanwhile, the current owner of the brand Saint Laurent, François Pinault, approved of Saint Laurent, which puts the fate of Bertrand's film in a dilemma.

Watch the trailer for Saint Laurent (which also stars Léa Seydoux) and Yves Saint Laurent, in no particular order, and let the film wars begin.
