Must Watch: Paul Dano & Daniel Radcliffe in 'Swiss Army Man' Trailer
"So this is the life I've forgotten…" A24 has unleashed the first amazingly awesome new trailer for Swiss Army Man, the controversial and wacky film from Sundance this year that prompted a few walk outs - but mostly lots of acclaim from audiences and critics. Yes, this is the film starring Daniel Radcliffe as a farting corpse, but it's so much more than that. Paul Dano stars as a man stuck on a deserted island until this corpse suddenly shows up, helping him come back to life again. This trailer is kind of a teaser but it does capture the whimsy and magic of the film, since it's more of a zany comedy than it is depressing. Have at it. The film was picked up at Sundance by A24 after earning quite a bit of buzz - read my review from the fest.
Here's the first official trailer for Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert's Swiss Army Man, direct from A24:
Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends, and ultimately go on an epic adventure that will bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams. "There are 7 billion people on the planet. You might be lucky enough to bump into the one person you want to spend the rest of your life with." Swiss Army Man is both written and directed by filmmaker pair "The Daniels", or Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert. This is their first feature after working on shorts and music videos, and it originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year (read my review). A24 will release Swiss Army Man in theaters starting June 24th this summer. Curious?
