Well, it’s here. You probably remember hearing about Swiss Army Man during the Sundance Film Festival, and if the actual title doesn’t ring a bell, “Daniel Radcliffe’s farting corpse” probably does.
The film, which stars Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano, was described as the “worst” movie in Sundance history. However, it was also described as the most “bizarre” movie and some critics even claimed it was one of the best films they watched during the festival.
And you know what? I believe those brave critics. Why? Because A24 picked up the film and they don’t make a lot of mistakes. They will be releasing the movie this summer, and they’re trying to get people excited with the first trailer you see below.
Call me crazy, but this trailer works for me. Yeah, you can definitely see why some people walked out of the initial screening, but you can also see why those that remained in their seats are calling it one of the best films they have seen in a long time.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“Alone on a tiny deserted island, Hank has given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a dead body washes ashore, and he soon realizes it may be his last opportunity to escape certain death. After befriending the corpse and gradually discovering his special powers, the duo go on an epic adventure to bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams.”
