We recently got a promising look at writer/director Roman Coppola’s (Moonrise Kingdom) upcoming film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III by way of a few new images, and now a curious batch of teaser posters has been released. The pic stars Charlie Sheen as a successful graphic designer whose fame and fortune have made him irresistible to women. After his girlfriend breaks up with him, he heads into a downward spiral that forces him to look back on his failed romantic history. These posters boast the name of the film’s stars alongside a corresponding sexually suggestive image, and while I’m not exactly sure what it all means, I’m sufficiently intrigued.
Hit the jump to check out the posters and a brief bit of the first footage from the film. Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza, and Patricia Arquette also star. A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III opens on February 8th. [Update: We’ve updated the article with hi-res versions of the posters along with the first images from the film.]
Here’s the synopsis for A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III:
Charles Swan III (Charlie Sheen) has it all. He’s an eccentric and highly successful graphic designer whose fame, money and devilish charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. But when his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly ends their relationship, Charles is left heartbroken. With the support of his loyal intimates– Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) – he begins a delirious journey of self-reflection to try and come to terms with a life without Ivana. “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III” is a unique relationship film told in a playful and unconventional style.
