The first official trailer for Swiss Army Man has landed, staring Daniel Radcliffe as a farting corpse.

The movie sees the Harry Potter actor star alongside Little Miss Sunshine's Paul Dano and has received considerable buzz already for Radcliffe as a corpse emitting posthumous flatulence.

Swiss Army Man debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival, where it was described among audiences as "the one where Paul Dano rides a dead Daniel Radcliffe across the ocean using nothing more than the raw energy of the corpse's farts."

Surprisingly, a dead body farting its way across the ocean is just the beginning of the film.

In the trailer, you see Radcliffe's corpse character, Manny, serving a handful of strange practical purposes to help Dano's Hank on his personal journey.

The film was apparently so polarising at Sundance that many viewers left the screening before it ended, while others are praising the release for its inventiveness.
