Woody Harrelson is Wilson in First Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Wilson'
"Can't you see that this woman is having a profound moment?" Fox Searchlight has debuted an official red band trailer for the indie comedy Wilson, starring Woody Harrelson as the title character Wilson. He plays a "lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged man reunites with his estranged wife and meets his teenage daughter for the first time." The full cast includes Laura Dern, Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines, Shaun Brown, David Warshofsky and Isabella Amara. This is made by the same guy who made The Skeleton Twins, which is a fantastic little indie film. This looks like a lot of fun, and Woody Harrelson is a great actor and it's always fun to see him playing around with unique roles like this. Looking forward to it.
Here's the first red band trailer (+ poster) for Craig Johnson's Wilson, direct from YouTube:
Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her. Wilson is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Craig Johnson, of the indie films The Skeleton Twins (an outstanding gem) and True Adolescents previously. The screenplay is written by Daniel Clowes, based on his own graphic novel of the same name (you buy it on Amazon here). Fox Searchlight will open Wilson in theaters starting March 24th, 2017 early next year. First impression?

Nowadays? Harrelson has always been an incredible actor.

Sorry, there were a few touch and go years.

Harrelson is good since the continental drift.

This looks hilarious.

Looks like the director chose to follow in the footsteps of Ghost World, another Dan Clowes adaptation, in terms of overall style. Makes the film look like it's from the 90s imo. Harrelson looks like a hoot, though.
