One Man's Sanity Has Gone AWOL in this Trailer for Swiss Army Man

Tagline: "We All Need Some Body to Lean On."

It is very rare that you will see a comedy mentioned here; 28DLA does not joke around. However, the trailer for Swiss Army Man, starring Daniel Radcliffe, is a surreal journey through death and reality. The film's first clip shows Hank (Paul Dano) delusional, lonely and likely bored. Driven to suicide, Hank finds some solace in the body of a mysterious man. As well, Swiss Army Man debuted at Sundance, last year. Here, the film polarized audiences and the trailer will show you why.

The film avoids plotlines. Still, after watching the trailer, it becomes clear that Hank has eaten far too many mushrooms in the local forest. Or, he has been driven to insanity, because of his isolation. Either way, Hank has really gone off the rails as he interacts with his new, imagined friend. His imagination also creates all sorts of unlikely scenarios, which might leave the viewer feeling slightly unsettled.

Swiss Army Man is set for a Summer release. On June 17th, A24 Entertainment will release this title in theatres. Fans of the bizarre or of fantasy should not miss seeing this very unique film. More details on Swiss Army Man are below.
