Rarely do we get more than one Bill Murray film a year, but after both this summer’s Moonrise Kingdom and next week’s Hyde Park on the Hudson, the wait until his next movie is a mere few months. After premiering at the Rome Film Festival last month, we’ve now got the first trailer for A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, which follows the extravagant life of our main character, played by Charlie Sheen.
Marking Roman Coppola‘s first feature in over a decade, we’ve got the debut trailer today which is complete with just the right amount of quirk and after helping out his friend Wes Anderson with both Kingdom and The Darjeeling Limited, his latest film doesn’t seem far removed from that family. Check out the promising trailer below for the film also starring Jason Schwartzman, Katheryn Winnick, Aubrey Plaza, Patricia Arquette and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Set in a stylized Los Angeles, A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles’ life falls apart, and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates—Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette)—he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III arrives on February 8th.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
