The trailer for Charlie Sheen’s latest film dropped over the weekend — and it has already been dubbed the most offensive film of all time.

The film, which is simply titled ‘9/11’, stars Sheen as financier Jeffrey Cage, who is forced to fight for survival when he becomes trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center’s North Tower.

It also stars Whoopi Goldberg, who appears to play a security guard who is in control of monitoring CCTV in the building.

But according to public opinion, the real-life disaster film is nothing short of insensitive, with people calling it “beyond offensive” and “extremely tasteless”.

Another said: “Making a 9/11 movie in 2017 is already bad enough but casting Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg is like asking to be laughed at.”

One YouTube user added: “The cast makes me feel like this is just another movie trying to cash in on a tragic event.”

Troubled actor Sheen, has previously controversially promoted conspiracy theories around the September 11 attacks, stating he believes the US government was responsible for the twin towers’ collapse.

The film is set to be released in US cinemas on September 8.
