The Double Trailer: 2 Jesse Eisenbergs, 1 Weird Movie

by Max Kessler


If you've ever wanted to see a creepy film where Jesse Eisenberg plays both of the leads, The Double is the movie for you. Directed by Richard Ayoade (who played Moss on The IT Crowd) the film is an adaptation of the Dostoevsky novella of the same name, and as such is sure to depict a dark and brooding descent into god knows what. In the novella, government worker Yakov Petrovich Golyadkin goes crazy imagining that a doppelganger is taking over his life. While we'll forever have a crush on Richard Ayoade, we having nothing but over-the-top eyerolls for a trailer with two smug-faced, interviewer-badgering New Yorker column-writing Jessie Eisenbergs in a Dostoevsky adaptation, so kudos to those who will be able to sit through the entire movie. MICHAEL CERA 4 LYFE. Watch above.
