Poignant First Trailer For Wonder Will Punch You Directly In The Feels

26 May 2017 5:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Why blend in when you were born to stand out? That’s the angst-ridden conundrum left facing Auggie, a young boy nursing a facial deformity that has essentially forced him into becoming a social recluse from an early age.

But when the opportunity to enroll in a mainstream school arises, Auggie is gently nudged out of his comfort zone and into the big, bold world, and if you’re in any way familiar with Raquel J. Palacio’s source material, that poignant coming-of-age story will no doubt ring a bell. We are, of course, referring to Wonder, the 2012 children’s novel that is being repackaged as a feature film under the watchful eye of director Stephen Chbosky. Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and the so-hot-right-now Jacob Tremblay (The Predator, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan) are all on board to star, with the latter attached to the rather demanding role of Auggie – physically, »

‘Wonder’ Gets Emotional First Trailer With Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts

24 May 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate released the heartbreaking-turned-heartwarming trailer for “Wonder,” the drama starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay.

The film, based on the New York Times bestselling novel of the same name written by R.J. Palacio, shares the story of a young boy struggling to overcome facial differences.

Roberts and Wilson play the protective parents of August “Auggie” Pullman (Tremblay), a fifth grader who is starting school for the first time. By the time he’s 10, Auggie has had 27 surgeries to help him breathe, see, and hear without a hearing aid — but none have made him look like the other kids, he explains in the trailer.

As Auggie learns to navigate school, he is faced with both bullies and friends. Auggie becomes an unlikely hero as his journey teaches his family, classmates, and community about compassion, acceptance, and inner beauty — and retains a sense of humor.

“It takes a lot of work to look this good, »

Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay Are Determined to Make You Cry in the Wonder Trailer

24 May 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After watching the trailer for Wonder, all I can say is that I'm thankful I don't sit directly across from anyone at work, because this was clearly designed to make people cry. The weepy, feel-good movie stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as parents of young Auggie Pullman (adorable Room actor Jacob Tremblay), whose multiple life-saving surgeries left him with facial differences. As Auggie navigates school for the first time, he encounters bullies, mean girls, and, thankfully, a few genuine new friends who assure him that "you can't blend in when you were born to stand out." Wonder hits theaters on Nov. 17. »

Top 10 Movies Filmed in Thailand

23 May 2017 10:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Over the years there have been a great number of movies that have been filmed in Thailand, some of those films were supposed to be filmed there whilst others were filmed there as a stand in for places such as Cambodia and Vietnam.

One of the main benefits of using Thailand is that the production costs can be kept very low if the movie requires things such as glorious beaches, jungles or even elephants! Plus, with an army of experienced film crew members residing in Thailand production staffing costs can also be kept low too by hiring local yet skilled personnel.

There are of course plenty of benefits for Thailand as a whole when any major films are filmed there, as it helps the tourist industry no end, with many people wishing to visit many of the places a film was filmed at.

With that in mind we are now »
