When it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, reviews for Swiss Army Man were not all that great. But this is such a bizarre, WTF-inducing premise that it was going to get looked at no matter what. Even if you don’t know the title, you probably heard of this as the farting corpse movie starring Harry Potter himself as the corpse. Well, a new trailer is here, and it’s as bonkers as you expect, possibly even more so.
The tag line for Swiss Army Man is “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.” Only in this case the soul mate in question just so happens to be a decomposing body (Daniel Radcliffe) befriended by a hopeless man (Paul Dano) stranded on a deserted island. As you can see in this trailer, the two unlikeliest of friends go on a surreal adventure as they attempt to get home. And oddly enough, it actually looks strange and funny and sweet.
Yeah, so, if you’ve ever wanted to see the corpse of Harry Potter fart, puke, and used like a jet ski, Swiss Army Man might just the film for you. It opens in theaters on July 1. I already have a theory about the ending, and I really hope I’m wrong, because it would completely fuck up the entire movie, but we’ll see.
