It’s only been a week since ‘Swiss Army Man’ shocked Park City audiences at its Sundance world premiere, and the absurdist dramedy is already known as “the Daniel Radcliffe fart movie.” If you’ve seen the headlines and read the reviews (here’s ours), you already know the film prompted some walk-outs after Paul Dano‘s Hank rode the back of Radcliffe’s Manny, a farting corpse, like a jet-ski across an ocean. But, like those who left after the hilarious, blissfully weird opening scene, what you don’t know is that Swiss Army Man is actually a meditation on profound, human topics.
If you’ve heard anything about ‘Swiss Army Man’ then you already know one very important detail: Daniel Radcliffe is a farting corpse. That may be enough to make you stop reading and decide this film isn’t for you. After all, there were walkouts during the premiere on Friday night (though when aren’t there walkouts?). But wait, there is more to this completely nutty adventure of hypnotic imagery and childlike fantasy. If you’re intrigued by the idea of how such an obscene and immature level of humor can give way to one of the most enjoyably bizarre, confounding and visually inspired movie-watching experiences, then bear with me.
And now, for their next trick: a sequel!
It’s alive! Again! For the, what, twentieth time?
Warner Bros. purchased the rights to the Harry Potter movies in 1999 for $2 million.

On Tuesday night, Daniel Radcliffe shocked the world with his amazingly great performance (with help from The Roots) of the Blackalicious song, ‘Alphabet Aerobics.’ On Thursday afternoon, we spoke to a still-quite-excited-about-his-performance Radcliffe (who is promoting his new movie, ‘Horns’; the full interview will publish on Friday) who explains how all of this happened and how Questlove almost scared him out of doing the performance in the first place.
Daniel Radcliffe's name may be forever synonymous with 'Harry Potter,' but the British actor has already proven that his talents extend far beyond playing the boy wizard on the big screen. He can do the Broadway thing! He's got a nifty fake American accent! He can rap! Wait...what?
