A24 has released a new red-band trailer for the insanely hilarious looking buddy comedy Swiss Army Man starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe. The film is written and directed by "The Daniels" as they call themselves aka Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The film looks absolutely incredible, heartwarming and sweet, but absolutely strange! Even though the film has been referred to as the "farting corpse" film, you can tell from the great trailers that there is a lot more going on here. I can't wait to check out this film out when it hits theaters later this summer.
Check out the trailer below and then let us know how interested or excited you are for this crazy little film in the comments sections. Enjoy the new trailer below.
Here's the official synopsis:
"Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
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.
Swiss Army Man creates a world like no other—a place of pure fantastical imagination, brimming with magical realism yet featuring two characters whose dreams and fears are entirely relatable. Dano and Radcliffe both fully commit to their directors’ audacious vision, and their work is exceptional, finding the perfect balance of humor and heart that drives the whole film. A celebration of all the wonders cinema has to offer, Swiss Army Man is a cultural phenomenon in the making; a surreal and wholly original examination of human vulnerability and connection that must be experienced."
Swiss Army Man is set to hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles on June 24th, and will expand nationwide on July 1st.
