UK distributors Studio Canal have released a new trailer for the Jesse Eisenberg film, The Double, two months before its debut in European territories.
The Double is the latest film from director Richard Ayoade (Submarine). In the film, Jesse Eisenberg plays a young man who is timid and ignored by the woman he so desperately wants (played by Mia Wasikowska). When a new worker enters his workplace, the balance is completely thrown off by this doppelgänger who is similar in appearance, but the polar opposite emotionally. The new trailer delves into the strange by comparing the story to that of two snakes. The bigger snake will eat the smaller snake to become the biggest, introducing the battle between the two men. The film is described as a dark comedy, but I would be hard pressed to pull anything funny out of this latest trailer.
The Double opens in the UK on April 4th and in the US on May 9th.
