Full Length Trailer For The Double
Jesse Eisenberg has trouble in doppelgängland

It has been just a few days since we last got a look at Richard Ayoade’s second directorial effort, The Double. But while that was a teaser, this is the new full trailer for the film, which finds Jesse Eisenberg having some double trouble. Take a look via Yahoo. 

Eisenberg handles the dual role of Simon James and James Simon. The former is a nerdy, unimpressive drone whose unsatisfying life is thrown into chaos by the sudden arrival of the latter, his doppelganger. This copy is actually funnier, sexier and much more confident than poor Simon, and soon the new version is creeping (or rather, marching confidently) into all areas of Simon’s life, including his job and the affections of his dream girl, Hannah (Mia Wasikowska).

Drawing from Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novella, Ayoade wrote the script with Avi Korine and scored a cast that includes Sally Hawkins, Wallace Shawn, James Fox, Paddy Considine, Noah Taylor, Yasmin Paige, Craig Roberts, Chris O’Dowd and even the director’s old I.T. Crowd boss, Chris Morris.

With real Gilliamesque vibes here, this will surely be a different night out at the cinema. We’ll see for sure when The Double arrives on April 4 before it heads to the US on May 9.
