Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard in "Night Moves"
Deliberate and the measured, the oeuvre of Kelly Reichardt—which has included films "Old Joy," "Wendy & Lucy" and "Meek's Crossing"—isn't for everyone. That said, she's been able to attract some pretty terrific talent for her films, with Michelle Williams making two movies with the director. Her next project, "Night Moves," she rounds up Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard for a tale with a more provocative punch.

The End Of The Tour Jason Segel Jesse Eisenberg set photo
Somewhere beyond the grave, David Foster Wallace is writing a great essay with extensive footnotes about the fact that Jason Segel will be playing him in a movie. Yep, the late Pulitzer Prize finalist will be portrayed by the guy who got his dick out and wrote a puppet musical in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." It's kinda poetic, in a strange way.

The Double, Eisenberg
Opening this weekend, Denis Villeneuve's "Enemy" using the conduit of the doppelganger (a popular cinematic theme, see our recent feature) to explore themes of identity and sexuality in a brilliantly surreal headfuck of a movie. And while Richard Ayoade's "The Double" also plays with two man as duplicates of each other, his aims are much more whimsical, but no less satisfying.

The Double, Eisenberg
While on the surface, "Enemy" and "The Double" might seem like similar films, with both featuring stories about doppelgängers, but really they couldn't be more different. Where Jake Gyllenhaal's film is an existential, psychosexual thriller, Jesse Eisenberg's movie is a steampunk, fantastical delight. And better yet, both are worth tracking down.

The Double
After a series of playful teasers that focused on atmosphere or tone, or told stories about snakes, a new traditional trailer has arrived for Richard Ayoade's "The Double." Well, about as traditional as a movie like this can get, which is another way of saying, this is truly something special.

Things are looking up for Jesse Eisenberg. Last week saw “The Social Network” star cast as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s increasingly odd “Batman Vs. Superman”—or whatever it ends up being called—and this week sees one of his projects come back from the dead.

The Social Network
Remember when you could poke people on Facebook? Or how about the first time someone liked your status update? It's hard to believe, but today Facebook celebrates it's tenth birthday, with the site officially launched on February 4, 2004. And it can be easy to forget how massively Mark Zuckerberg's site reshaped the way we interact online and infiltrated pop culture, and so, here's a reminder.

While the rumor mill churned with Bryan Cranston, and other older, balder actors, it looks like Zack Snyder and co. have thrown a huge curveball to fans when it comes to Lex Luthor, the long expected villain of "Batman Vs. Superman": he's going to be much younger than you thought.

The Double
The pleasures to be found in Richard Ayoade's upcoming "The Double" go far beyond Jesse Eisenberg's dual performance that powers the movie. From the great score by Andrew Hewitt, to the production design from David Crank, every inch of the "Submarine" director's film has been carefully considered and thought through. That it all comes together as a near flawless steampunk comedy/romance/thriller is the icing on the cake.
