Listen, it's pretty much a wasteland at the box office this weekend. The less said about "A Haunted House" the better, while "Gangster Squad" is just plain disappointing (you'd be better off watching these classic gangster flicks instead). Granted, "Zero Dark Thirty" is going wide, but if you'd rather avoid the crowds, there are options if you're just staying in. Roman Coppola's "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III" is now on VOD, and if you need to know what it's all about, Charlie Sheen is here to tell you.

Listen, it's pretty much a wasteland at the box office this weekend. The less said about "A Haunted House" the better, while "Gangster Squad" is just plain disappointing (you'd be better off watching these classic gangster flicks instead). Granted, "Zero Dark Thirty" is going wide, but if you'd rather avoid the crowds, there are options if you're just staying in. Roman Coppola's "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III" is now on VOD, and if you need to know what it's all about, Charlie Sheen is here to tell you.

A new band trailer for the movie has dropped, and though brief, its simple approach is pretty clever. Sheen introduces the spot to explain to viewers what they'll be getting, and then it moves into a montage of magazine images of pop art clips with an emphasis on nude women. Jason Schwartzman caps things off with a quick appearance. But in case you're really wondering what it's actually about, the film is set in the '70s and follows Charles Swan (Sheen), a successful graphic designer whose who world falls apart when his girlfriend Ivana, dumps him. And so begins a quest to learn how to live without her in his life. 

A pretty great company is assembled around Sheen with Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Patricia Arquette, Aubrey Plaza, Katheryn Winnick, Richard Edson, Maxine Bahns and Bar Paly among the cast. Order it up now, and if you want to see it on the big screen, 'Charles Swan' hits theaters on February 8th. Watch below.
