Richard Ayoade’s The Double is going to be a quiet hit. It looks fantastic. Jesse Eisenberg (who’s going to play Lex Luthor in a few years, apparently) literally shows different aspects of his talent, the trailer is rife with humor, and I want to see the mystery of Simon and his “double” unfold. Is his double actually a double? Or is it all in a timid man’s imagination?
The Double hits VOD and theaters May 9th, so we’ll figure it all out soon enough.[via Apple]
