The Double

Following its debut at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, the newest film from British TV star turned director, Richard Ayoade, is set to arrive in the UK next spring. The first trailer for The Double premiered around the time of the festival, and now there are two quad posters featuring stars Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska split right down the middle. Our own Alex Billington called the film "an instant cult classic" and a "funky mindfuck, Terry Gilliam-esque, trippy, fun, dark comedy." Hopefully it'll hit the US sometime next year, but in the meantime check out our interview with Richard Ayoade right here.

Here's the UK quad posters for Richard Ayoade's The Double from Empire:

The Double

The Double is directed by Richard Ayoade (Submarine), who co-write the script with Avi Korine (brother of Spring Breakers director Harmony Korine), based on Dostoyevsky's The Double: A Petersburg Poem. The film follows Jesse Eisenberg as Simon, who arrives at work only to find an exact double of himself has usurped his tenuous position in the company. Routinely humiliated by his boss (Wallace Shawn), the neurotic Simon now has to deal with a doppelgänger that is everything he isn't: confident, charming, successful, superficial. Mia Wasikowska and Noah Taylor also star in the film which premieres at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, but doesn't have a theatrical release date set just yet. Looking good?
