Today's 2014 Sundance Film Festival trailer provides twice the daily recommended allowance of Jesse Eisenberg.

The comedy-drama "The Double" is a loose adaptation of a Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella, about a meek office worker (played by Eisenberg) who finds a new colleague is his doppelganger — and having a lot more fun living life than he is.

The movie co-stars Mia Wasikowska ("Alice in Wonderland") and Wallace Shawn, and is directed by British actor/filmmaker Richard Ayoade — who's probably best known for his role in the British sitcom "The IT Crowd."

"The Double" will screen in the Spotlight program of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
