Daniel Radcliffe’s Farting Corpse Movie ‘Swiss Army Man’ Gets Trailer

The most divisive movie at this year’s Sundance Film Festival has finally gotten a trailer.

Dubbed “Daniel Radcliffe’s farting corpse movie,” “Swiss Army Manprompted walk-outs when it premiered at Sundance on Jan. 22. A24 released the first trailer, which is sure to divide an even larger audience, for the film on Monday.

Paul Dano’s Hank is about to commit suicide in the teaser when he catches sight of a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) that has washed ashore on the desert island where he’s stranded. The deranged man befriends the dead body who eventually talks back. And when they’re not discussing profound topics like the meaning of life, the duo chats about masturbation. Radcliffe’s Manny soon becomes a multi-purpose utility tool that Hank uses to karate chop logs and ride as a jet ski back to the mainland.

“At times deliriously dynamic, at others patience-grating in the extreme, the constantly inventive film fires off ideas that are as exhilarating as anything American audiences will see all year, only to lag in long swells on either side,” Variety‘s Chief International Film Critic Peter Debruge wrote in his review. He also described the film as “‘Cast Away’ meets ‘Weekend at Bernie’s,’ as directed by Michel Gondry.”

Written and directed by music video duo Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (known as “Daniels”), “Swiss Army Man” hits theaters on June 17.
