Red Band trailer:

That would explain what he was up to .lol
I hadn;t seen that red band trailer before I went to see this and I'm glad I didn't as it gives away a hell of a lot of the movie. There's no plot preamble to be told as it's all in plain sight, as it occurs.
But I will say this is one of the most enjoyable movies I've seen this year, and last, probably. Top 5 at least. Hell of a backup cast as well. Pedro is ok, if a little creepy in places. Sharon horgan plays his estranged wife Olivia, and it's a telling of how long ago this movie was shot as Lily mo Sheen looks a hell of a lot younger than in all those *selfies* that keep leaking onto the internet, bless her.
I really recommend it. There's an LSD scene in the middle that is bookended by identical shots either end, presumably so it can be edited out for countries that have a problem with that kind of thing, and there's several shots & scenes in that trailer that didn't make it onto the final edit.
Yes, it's meta, and you know how it's going to end because the meta-ness leaks into the script and it's telegraphed at the end of act 3, and it knows it.
EDIT: also, spot the obvious nods to The Interview & Tropic Thunder
