Roman Coppola is best known for co-writing Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited and Moonrise Kingdom, and for directing commercials, and his last feature was CQ, back in 2001. Not for nothing, he also has a righteous monobrow. Next year, he returns to features with A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, which opens February 8th, about a graphic designer who starts going nuts when his girlfriend leaves him. Charlie Sheen plays Charles Swan, Bill Murray his accountant, and Jason Schwartzman his stand-up comic best friend. Today we have a trailer (below), and…  well, it doesn’t make any f*cking sense.

Movie? What movie?  All I saw was a bunch a actors wearin’ costumes.

I… don’t… know what’s going on…

Closest I can tell, this is some sort of boozy Eurotrash version of Scott Pilgrim. Where instead of fighting seven evil exes, Charlie Sheen has to re-enact a Jerry Lewis sketch with a puppet.
