Wonderlust First Look

Tom Haynes’ “Wonderstruck” Gets First Look Clip

Based on Brian Selznick’s critically acclaimed novel Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck tells the story of two children, living in different time periods, that share a unique connection.

A “first look” clip has just been released ahead of its forthcoming premiere at the 70th Festival de Cannes next week.  The clip, though simple in nature, displays the unique style and tone that Haynes has chosen in delivering his split era tale.

The film marks the fifth collaboration between director Haynes and star Julianne Moore, the last of which (2014’s Still Alice) won Moore an Academy Award for Best Actress.

Released by Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions Wonderstruck co-stars Michelle Williams, Oakes Fegley and Millicent Simmonds and is set to hit theaters on October 20.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
