Daniel Radcliffe is playing the role in the trailer. In the trailer, the actor takes a huge sip of whiskey before busting out Yankovic’s signature accordion.

What does the trailer remind you of?

The trailer may remind you of a 2010 Funny or Die sketch with a similar premise, that may be because the director of that short is also the writer and director of this movie, Eric Appel. Radcliffe shared his excitement to see the reaction of the audience to this movie. This happened in an interview with the New York Times about the movie. He describes that he did one shot on that day and the next day, Al came to him. He asked him whether it was the weirdest thing he had ever done. In the reply to this question, Radcliffe said that it’s among the top two. The other one is Paul Dano riding on him like a Jet Ski at the beginning of Swiss Army Man.


About the story of the film 

Weird Al Yankovic is a parody songwriter and musician in his own right with a career of 45 years. The songwriter won 6 platinum records and 5 Grammys. He still holds concerts that sell out even to this day. This is a biopic based on a comedy on Yankovic’s life whose co-writer is Yankovic himself.  After leaving the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe made a career starring in a string of rather eccentric indies, such as the Swiss Army Army, Horns, and Guns Akimbo. But the Weird Al biopic might be the weirdest of all of them.


Yankovic’s musical career 

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story was finished in just 18 days. Radcliffe learned the accordion from the real Weird Al and he called it an insane experience. Earlier, Radcliffe said that it was a big responsibility to wear the Hawaiian shirt. In his career, Yankovic  parodied musicians with huge names, like Michael Jackson, Eminem, and Madonna. His music videos were hilarious and they often became as big hits as the actual songs. In addition to being a musician, Yankovic is also a voice actor and he is working on projects such as Pete the Cat, American Dad!, and Bojack Horseman.

The trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, seems to be a standard-issue biopic. For the first time, Radcliffe is seen performing on stage. He is high-fiving, break dancing, battling in a kind of sushi restaurant, and he’s looking for every opportunity to use an accordion. The biopic is like the one that the audience always wanted to see and has portrayed the musician very well.
