A UK trailer for Richard Ayoade’s intense looking new thriller, The Double, was released by Studio Canal today, and you will find the trailer below.


Starring Jesse Eisenberg, the film is based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novella, and follows a government clerk (Eisenberg) whose life is destroyed after he believes an exact copy of himself starts working in his office, and tries to disrupt and ruin his life. Check out the trailer below.

The film also stars Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Rade Serbedzija, James Fox, and Yasmin Paige.

The Double opens in the UK on 4th April 2014.


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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
