The first U.S. trailer for the emo Nazi-hunter movie This Must Be the Place has been released.  The film stars Sean Penn as an aging-rocker who becomes obsessed with pursuing the Nazi criminal who tormented his father in a concentration camp.  The French trailer for the film showcased Penn’s strange performance, but this new trailer is just straight up bizarre.  I’m not really sure what Penn’s going for, but he’s created one hell of an offbeat character.  There are a couple laughs in the clip, but I honestly don’t know if this movie’s supposed to be a drama or a comedy.  Then there’s that random Talking Heads cameo.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Directed by Paolo Sorrentino, the film also stars Frances McDormand and Judd HirschThis Must Be the Place opens on October 14th.

Here’s the synopsis for This Must Be the Place:

Cheyenne (Sean Penn) is a former rock star. At 50, he still dresses “goth” and lives in Dublin off his royalties. The death of his father, with whom he wasn’t on speaking terms, brings him back to New York. He discovers his father had an obsession: to seek revenge for a humiliation he had suffered. Cheyenne decides to pick up where his father left off, and starts a journey, at his own pace, across America.
