Wonder Trailer Release

“Wonder” Debut Trailer Hits You With All The Feels

“You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.”

With those simple words Wonder hits its mark.

Starring Julie Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay, Stephen Chbosky’s Wonder looks solid thanks to its well crafted and inspirational first trailer.  Part comedy, part drama and all-around tearjerker, this coming-of-age story dials in on acceptance as a group of kids show that outward appearances aren’t everything.

Based on R.J. Palacio’s New York Times best-selling novel, Wonder tells the story of August Pullman, a young boy with facial differences who, for the first time, is entering the public school system to attend the fifth grade.

Chbosky’s last film, Perks of Being a Wildflower, proves the director understands the coming-of-age formula.  If Wonder is half as good as Perks is, we’ll all be in for a treat.

Wonder is currently slated to be released just in time for the holiday season on November 7.


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.
