A teaser trailer for Richard Ayoade‘s dark comedy The Double has gone online. Jesse Eisenberg stars as a beleaguered office drone whose life is made even worse when he meets a man who shares his appearance but has the exact opposite personality. I saw the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival and adored it. If The Double had been released theatrically this year, it would be on my Top 10. This teaser trailer doesn’t really show off much of the film’s stronger qualities, and it doesn’t even demonstrate the central conceit of Eisenberg’s character having a “double”. But it does display the excellent cinematography, lets people know about the strong cast, and hints at the absurdity Eisenberg’s character has to face.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O’Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts, and Paddy Considine. The Double opens in the U.K. on April 4, 2014. Magnolia Pictures will distribute the movie in the U.S., but it currently doesn’t have a release date.
