The Red Band Trailer for “Swiss Army Man” Show Farts and Boners Like You’ve Never Seen Before
Much controversy has come from the divisive Swiss Army Man. It’s use of Danielle Radcliffe’s farts (specifically used to help Paul Dano get home) and other such things that have been usually relegated to banal straight-to-DVD comedies hit the wrong nerve for many when it screened at Sundance. For others, it was a one-of-a-kind, amazing vision.
For our money, this new red band trailer gives credence to the latter (even with the featuring of unusual boners).
If you’re on the Swiss Army Man train, look for it in theaters on June 24th.

Yes, what’s been described as the farting corpse movie won an award at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.
In fact, plenty of news outlets reported of numerous walk outs during the screening of Swiss Army Man starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano, which does indeed feature farting corpses. Those walk outs didn’t stop directors Daniel Scheinhart and Daniel Kwan from winning a directing award.
The cross country coming-of-age story Morris From America featuring Markees Christmas, who got his start at Channel 101, was honored with the Waldo Screenwriting Award (given to writer Chad Hartigan) and Special Jury Award for Individual Performance for Markees.
Dramedy, The Intervention, also got a Special Jury Award for Individual Performance that went to Melanie Lynskey.
Hopefully, all of these films will get a much wider distribution than the typical limited indie release and we’ll all have a chance to go see what was the talk of Park City.
