Charles Swan Charlie Sheen

After more than a decade, Roman Coppola has a second directorial effort hitting theaters, and A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III has a lot going for it. It also has a giant question mark lodged in its center: its star. It was thinly veiled stunt casting at the time, and that could have paid off, but even the morbid curiosity has fallen off of Charlie  Sheen – a man stuck in time between has-been TV star and triumphant comeback artist. The complicated version is that not enough time has passed to legitimize a comeback, and the simple version is that very few people give a good goddamn about Sheen after he jumped energetically off the deep end of the abyss and the tabloid shine wore off.

Still, the positives of the movie read like a Wes Anderson side project. Coppola has, of course, worked with that yellow-loving director, and recently co-wrote Moonrise Kingdom, so it’s not hard to imagine that everything from the title of his sophomore project to the Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman-infused cast has a bit of Anderson flair to it. In that same vein, the marketing team has crafted a few symbol-centric posters that speak more to creating a stir than lazily photoshopping celebrity faces. Check them out for yourself, and enjoy the power of seeing Sheen’s name next to an unpeeled banana:

As you can probably guess, Charles Swan is in theaters February 8th and co-stars (amongst those already mentioned) Patricia Arquette and Aubrey Plaza.

The big question is, will you brave a lot of Charlie Sheen to enjoy the other elements?
