The Double trailer; Is the whole movie given away here..?

Here’s an interesting trailer; it actually almost works as a summary of what feels like the whole film. So even though this is the first trailer for the movie I’m going to caution that if you watch it you may feel like much of the plot is given away. Of course, given the nature of the film, there may be much more going on than even this trailer suggests, but it feels like deaths,, secrets and a twist that surely has to be a third act thing are all given away here?


“In THE DOUBLE, the mysterious murder of a US senator bearing the distinctive trademark of the legendary Soviet assassin "Cassius," forces Paul Shepherdson (Richard Gere), a retired CIA operative, to team with rookie FBI agent, Ben Geary (Topher Grace), to solve the crime. Having spent his career chasing Cassius, Shepherdson is convinced his nemesis is long dead, but is pushed to take on the case by his former supervisor, Tom Highland (Martin Sheen). Meanwhile, Agent Geary, who wrote his Master's thesis on Shepherdson's pursuit of the Soviet killer, is certain that Cassius has resurfaced. As Shepherdson and Geary work their way through crimes both past and present, they discover that Cassius may not be the person they always thought him to be, forcing both to re-examine everything and everyone around them.”

The cast includes Richard Gere, Topher Grace, Stana Katic, Stephen Moyer and Martin Sheen. The story has been written by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, who did an excellent job adapting 3:10 to Yuma and a less excellent job adapting Wanted. (Although it is always possible the director made light of their work). Michael Brandt is also the director of this film, his first.

Anyway, see for yourselves, or perhaps don’t...
