Of all the things to take away from Sundance Film Festival, everyone couldn’t stop talking about Swiss Army Man. As you all know, we like to think of Daniel Radcliffe as a part of the NYLON family after he filled in as our office receptionist. That task alone showed his ability to adapt to any role, but learning how to play a corpse? Radcliffe’s performance in the dark film mostly consists of him talking and farting, two things that can’t be taught. Those are skills that come naturally. You either have them or you don’t.
Paul Dano reacts in the same manner that we would if we discovered a dead body on the shore and that was our only source of companionship. At one point, he says “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.” Not exactly what we were thinking here, but we’ll roll with it. (Both eyes included.)
Damn, Daniel. Back at it again with the dead bodies. Swiss Army Man hits theaters on June 17. Get ready to scratch your head a lot as you watch the full trailer, below.
