Fans walk out of new Daniel Radcliffe movie - report

Fans reportedly walked out during the premiere of Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano's new movie at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday (22Jan16).

Hundreds packed into the screening of the hotly-anticipated Swiss Army Man, but editors at Variety report the movie, about a lost man who befriends a corpse on a desert island, divided the audience and many left the theater.


In the independent film, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, Dano's character finds a corpse washed ashore and the movie features long discussions about masturbation, isolation and the meaning of life, as well as a kiss between the actors.


The Harry Potter star plays the role of the corpse, who maintains an erection and passes gas throughout the film.


"The chance to play a dead guy in this context was too much fun to pass up," Radcliffe said in a question-and-answer session during the film festival in Utah.
