We've already seen a few trailers for Jesse Eisenberg's The Double already, but this is the full theatrical trailer for the Richard Ayoade-directed film. It's based on the novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Eisenberg plays a man who is driven into madness by the sudden appearance of his doppelganger who starts to take over his life. It was recently shown at Sundance, and there was a good amount of positive buzz for the movie. It definitely looks like a movie that would be worth checking out.
Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon's exact physical double and his opposite — confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon's horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.
The movie is scheduled to be released in the UK on April 4th and in the US on May 9th.
