Ariana’s follow-up to 'Thank u, next' - Imagine’ – didn’t quite blow up in the way everyone thought it would; but that’s fine because she has a new single which is going to be MASSIVE.

The Double, directed by the IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade, is one of this year's most highly anticipated movies. Starring Jesse Eisenberg in the lead roles (as Simon and James), the comedy film centers on Eisenberg's character who is driven insane by the appearance of his doppelganger.
