It's been more than a decade since we last saw a film from director Roman Coppola. But his latest effort "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," the retro comedy starring Charlie Sheen as a womanizing graphic designer who's in the midst of an emotional breakdown, is finally making its way to audiences.
Starting this week, you can find "Charles Swan" on iTunes and other VOD platforms, before it hits theaters in February. But in the case you want a quick peek inside Swan's mind, Sheen is happy to oblige in this 50-second red band trailer. It's quite literally a graphic interpretation of the character's inner thoughts, with a snappy appearance from Jason Schwartzman, who co-stars as Kirby Star, Swan's shaggy-haired friend. Check it out, above.
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?
