What would happen if you met your exact doppleganger, except he was more successful, sexier, cleverer and more confident than you were? That's the dilemma facing Jesse Eisenberg's Simon James in Richard Ayoade's entertaining "The Double." And another inventive trailer is here for the film.

The Double

What would happen if you met your exact doppleganger, except he was more successful, sexier, cleverer and more confident than you were? That's the dilemma facing Jesse Eisenberg's Simon James in Richard Ayoade's entertaining "The Double." And another inventive trailer is here for the film.

Based on the novella by Fyodor Dostoevsky, the film takes the story into a steampunk future/present where Eisenberg gives a dual turn as the meek Simon James and his far more charismatic double James Simon. Mia Wasikowska is the girl in the middle of the pair, with a pretty terrific ensemble of players (Wallace Shawn, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Yasmin Page and Noah Taylor) rounding out this fascinating, beautifully constructed world in a film that we called "totally bonkers, hilarious and wickedly clever."

"The Double" opens in the UK on April 4th and in the US on May 9th. Watch below.
