Dead Ringers Trailer: Meet Rachel Weisz's Elliot & Beverly Mantle

With the series set to hit Prime Video on April 21st, here's a look at the official trailer for Amazon's Rachel Weisz-starring Dead Ringers.

In a little less than a month, series creator, writer & EP Alice Birch (Normal People, Succession, The Wonder) and Amazon's modern take on David Cronenberg's 1988 thriller Dead Ringers will find Rachel Weisz taking on a double duty of portraying Elliot & Beverly Mantle. The Mantle twins share everything: drugs, lovers, and an unapologetic desire to do whatever it takes—including pushing the boundaries of medical ethics—in an effort to challenge antiquated practices and bring women's health care to the forefront. Now, we have an official trailer that does an impressive job of building upon what we've already seen preview-wise while also establishing that the series is much more than just a retelling of the Jeremy Irons-starring film.

With the six-episode streaming series premiering exclusively on Prime Video (we're talking 240+ countries & territories across the globe) on April 21st, here's a look at the official trailer for Dead Ringers:
