We’re willing to bet you haven’t seen anything like Swiss Army Man. People use this expression all the time, but this trailer has us convinced. Because honestly, it’s not every day that we get to see Daniel Radcliffe play a gassy corpse.

Everything about this trailer is magical. From the quirky indie vibe, to the melancholic bittersweet tone, and the hopeful depiction of what appears to be a suicidal lead character.

Watch the trailer here

Paul Dano, an underrated young actor if there ever was one, is mid suicide after being stranded on an island when Daniel Radcliffe’s body washes ashore. It’s a sign from above, or at least that’s how Dano’s character takes it. So what if the body has a farting problem? It just saved him from certain death and gave him hope and now he is determined to go find the woman he loves. And so, a visually dazzling adventure full of magic realism begins.

It’s no wonder that this movie is directed by music video directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (known collectively as ‘Daniels’), because it has that glossy music video style in spades. It’s looks like something Arcade Fire or Spike Jonze (Her) had a hand in.

Swiss Army Man looks like the quintessential Sundance movie, and another great addition to Daniel Radcliffe’s post Harry Potter career. Kwan and Scheinert won the Best Director award at this year’s festival and follows it in the tradition of other quirky gems like Safety Not Guaranteed and Beasts of the Southern Wild. Whether or not it can live up to the high mark set by those movies remains to be seen, but the trailer is magnificent.
