Over the decade he spent headlining theÂ Harry Potter movies, Daniel Radcliffe proved himself capable of delivering a classic cinematic hero. Thanks to the fortitude and integrity he exemplified as the plucky young wizard, we’d come to expect any Radcliffe role to fall in line with that shimmering brand of old school heroism (yes, even in Horns). We do not, on the other hand, expect said heroism to in any way involve supernaturally inclined erections. But the world is full of surprises.The first red band trailer for the upcoming odd ball comedy/survival story/existential tomeÂ Swiss Army ManÂ lends more attention to Daniel Radcliffe’s erect genitalia than one might have expected upon coming to the video blind. One might also be surprised to realize that our own Mr. Potter’s genitalia serves not only as a conduit to the sustenance of his family lineÂ but also, apparently, as an effective compass. Not only that, his flatulence appear to be particularly good forÂ marine transport. It gets weirder: Radcliffe’s character in Swiss Army Man, though riddledÂ with biological skillsÂ like those listed, is dead.Again, all this might seem jarring if you’re coming to the trailer without prior knowledge ofÂ Swiss Army Man, costarring Radcliffe and Paul Dano as two guys stranded on a desert island (one dead, one living), and written and directed by feature newbiesÂ Dan KwanÂ andÂ Daniel Scheinert. But if you’d kept your ear to the Sundance Film Festival news circuit, you might have been duly prepared for something a bit hard to swallow. The film’s premiere at the fest was so polarizing as to provoke hordes of walk-outs; that said, a good handful ofÂ critics (including our own Dan Casey) appreciated the askewÂ sensibilities of the funny and strange dramedy. We even listed it as one of the 15 movies you absolutely have to see this summer:[brightcoveÂ video_id=”4852944962001″Â brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″Â brightcove_player_id=”2bfa565b-5412-4cfd-9211-6269880b8a5e”]As far as I’m concerned,Â there’s no better traitÂ a movie can embodyâ€”especially in this day and age of studio system homogenyâ€”than genuine weirdness. I haven’t seen a film that looks quite likeÂ Swiss Army ManÂ (appropriately handled by the off-kilter kingpins at A24), and I’m looking forward to however much it aimsÂ to jostle me.
