Broadsheet Trailer Park: Swiss Army Man


Swiss Army Man

What you may need to know:

1. An island castaway (Paul Dano) finds a flatulent, multi-functional corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) and uses it to escape.

2. Yes, really.

3. All credit to Radcliffe for picking interesting post-Potter roles, but what the what?

4. This really split audiences when it premiered at Sundance this year. There were plenty of walk-outs, but it went on to win the directing award.

5. Go Hasselhoff!

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Weekend at Bernie’s III.

Release Date:
June 17.

    Radcliffe has really developed as an actor, it’s good to see him go from Harry Potter (and just reciting lines) to really stretching himself. The fame and renown (both good and bad) must be bloody difficult to separate yourself from.

      Similarly, Emma Watson has come out the other side as a well rounded human.

        Meanwhile, Rupert Grint sits alone at home, desperately clicking ‘refresh’ on this page.

          “Harry Potter – so unrealistic. Whoever heard of a ginger kid with two friends?” some stand up comedian, possibly Jimmy Carr.

    That actually looks really good.

    And it’s no surprise that Radcliffe has shown such wisdom in his post-Potter career. He spent his teenage years hanging out with Richard Harris, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane, Kenneth Branagh, Gary Oldman, Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes, Timothy Spall etc etc etc.

    Imagine being a protégé to even one of those actors, let alone all of them.

      He got acting lessons from Gary Oldman and Alan Rickman. I’m not at all jealous. No way.
