A24’s “Farting Corpse Movie” Swiss Army Man Gets First Trailer

A24

Directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, a.k.a. DANIELS, the duo behind one of our favorite music videos of 2014, for DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What,” Swiss Army Man quickly established its cult-movie bona fides at this year’s Sundance, where it won the festival’s directing prize. “The farting corpse comedy,” as it was both affectionately and not-so-affectionately dubbed by festivalgoers, tells the story of a man, Hank (Paul Dano), stranded on a deserted island and how he’s pulled from the edge of suicidal oblivion when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radscliffe) washes ashore and flatulently paves the way toward Hank’s salvation, and the woman of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Below is the trailer for the film, which opens theatrically on June 17.
