If you expect things like, say, actual footage from a film in your trailers, then turn away now. Considering the generally rancid time you may have if you head to the theater (save for some 2012 expanding films), one may be pleased that a promising option is available if you want to curl up and rent a film on VOD. That’s right, Roman Coppola‘s latest dramedy A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is on online platforms ahead of a theatrical release next month, and after a normal (at least as normal as his film could get) trailer, we’ve now got a wacky red band look.
Introduced by our extravagant main character, played by none other Charlie Sheen, we get a figurative glimpse inside his mind, highlighting some things one may find in the movie, then it gets interrupted when co-star Jason Schwartzman pops in. It’s a funny, odd, entertaining piece and something that seems to match the tone of the film. Check it out below for the project also starring Bill Murray, 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 is now on VOD and arrives on February 8th in theaters.
