Magnolia has dropped a new trailer for The Double. Richard Ayoade directed and co-wrote with Avi Korine and Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska star in the adaptation of Dostoevsky’s doppelganger tale. Eisenberg plays Simon, a timid, isolated man who’s overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams (Wasikowska). The arrival of a new co-worker, James (also played by Eisenberg), serves to upset the balance. Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O’Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts and Paddy Considine also star. The Double premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Magnolia releases the pic in theaters and iTunes/OnDemand on May 9.
