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:

Swiss Army Man Poster

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?

    It looks ok to me, nothing special and a bit odd. I'm confused as to how that trailer is "must watch" if your review from Sundance only gave the film a 7.5/10. Maybe reaching a little with the "must watch" label?
    • LOL nothing special. Say, you have a trump flag up your ass?
      • gjbender1
        Ok troll

    I like Paul Dano and I think he's an interesting actor. If I'm going to watch this, he's going to be a reason ...

    This is either going to be extremely stupid or insanely cool. I'm hoping for the latter...

      I'm not sure I want to spend money to see this; but it sure looks different.
  • Terry Craig
    lol pretty crazy lookin'. Might be fun.
  • VAharleywitch
    I think it's safe to say that while he may ever-remembered for playing Harry Potter, Radcliffe won't be type-cast as only playing that sort of role (fantasy, wizard, prophetized savior)
    • Akirakorn
      Yeah. I was expecting o Patronum! ;P
  • Akirakorn
    So it's Birdman the Castaway at a Weekend at Bernie's. Got it.
    I can't wait for this. It looks so weird and buzz was hilarious.
  • David Diaz
    This looks insanely brilliant. Even though I haven't seen it, I still can't believe people walked out. How long did they last? Personally I've never walked out of a film. Came close with Dungeons and Dragons. I'll forever be embarrassed by my parents though, who walked out of the original Star Wars after only 5 minutes! I cringe when my mother talks about it. LOL

    Rofl that was brilliant. Will definitely check it out. Paul Dano is awesome. An underrated actor and the dynamic between him and Radcliffe just jumps off the screen.
