A new trailer has arrived online for Richard Ayoade’s
, in which Jesse Eisenberg stars as both halves of the titular pair of doppelgangers.
The new trailer homes in on the creepier elements of Dostoevsky’s saga of paranoia, as Eisenberg’s character is told a chilling tale about a pair of twin snakes, one of which consumes the other.
The second half of the new teaser hints at the lighter tone Ayoade also employs, but the overwhelming impression is one of off-kilter menace. And very nicely done it is too.
Take a look at the new trailer, below:
Having garnered rave reviews at the festivals it screened at last year, we’re itching for The Double to finally make its UK bow, with Ayoade looking to have followed up Submarine in some style.
Co-starring Mia Wasikowska, Noah Taylor and James Fox, The Double will open in the UK on 4 April 2014.
