Hey guys! Horrorella here...
StudioCanal U.K. has released a trailer for Richard Ayoade‘s THE DOUBLE (not to be confused with Denis Villeneuve’s ENEMY).
THE DOUBLE is an adaptation of Dostoevsky's novel of the same name, and stars Jesse Eisenberg as an average, overlooked every-man named Simon, whose world is turned around when he meets his double - a man whose physical appearance is the same as Simon's but is different in every other conceivable way . The double is strong in all of the ways that Simon is not, and doesn't seem to have any of his weaknesses - everything Simon wishes that he himself could be.
The film is said to be a dark comedy, but this trailer really has a haunting, unsettling tone to it. It was well-received at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall, and is scheduled for release in the U.K. on April 4th, and in the U.S. on May 9th. It co-stars Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Noah Taylor, Yasmin Paige, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Sally Hawkins, Chris O’Dowd, Craig Roberts, and Paddy Considine.
