Harrelson, who is currently in London this week promoting Lost in London and will be seen in the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, plays a middle-aged man, estranged from his wife and has absolutely no concept of other people’s personal space in the trailer. On finding out he has a daughter who was put up for adoption entices her to play stalker, but not before she gives him a good handbag hiding, in order to get to know and go totally Dad crazy when he sees her being bullied. It’s classic loopy Harrelson in a role that has such warmhearted intentions but goes »

Son of Zorn finished its first season back in February and Fox has still not announced whether it's cancelled or renewed for season two. What do you think? Would you watch a second season of this crazy comedy?The Son of Zorn sitcom follows Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis), a warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean -- where everything and everyone is animated -- who returns to Orange County in California to win back his live-action ex-wife (Cheryl Hines) and their awkward teenage son (Johnny Pemberton). The cast also includes Tim Meadows and Artemis Pebdani.Read More… »
This week sees another comic book adaptation arrive at movie theatres, while the Lego Batman and Logan are still pulling audiences in at the multiplex. Ah, but this film is not another superhero slugfest (we’ll have three more of those from Marvel Studios, and two from Warner/DC by the year’s end). No this comes from the “upper classes” of illustrated narratives, those “serious and somber” graphic novels (kind of a “highfalutin'” moniker). Several prestige flicks have been based on such books, like The History Of Violence and The Road To Perdition (both earned Oscar noms). The “graphic artist” (hey, I’ll bet he’d prefer cartoonist) behind this new film is no stranger to cinema. Matter of fact, this is his third feature-length movie adaptation. The first was my personal favorite flick of 2001, the quirky Ghost World (no ectoplasmic apparitions, but a teenage Scarlett Johansson). Five years »

A comment to director Craig Johnson and screenwriter/graphic novelist Daniel Clowes on Laura Dern's tattoos for her character Pippi in Wilson, led us to Robert Crumb, Tony Danza, Van Halen, and Pippi Longstocking. Woody Harrelson is Wilson, Pippi's ex-husband, and they have a daughter, Claire (Isabella Amara). Judy Greer plays Shelly, Wilson's dog sitter for Pepper and Cheryl Hines was once his sister-in-law.
Not a shy man, Wilson likes to talk to all kinds of strangers. On an empty train, on the swing at the playground, in the men's room at an amusement park. »

We all have that one friend who has literally no filter. Well, imagine that person multiplied by ten and you might approach the level of social honesty that the title character displays in Wilson. Played with a sly grin and twinkle in his eye, Woody Harrelson fully embraces the vulgar and obnoxious Wilson, imbuing him with a charm that has the final say in each awkward situation in this film adaptation of Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel of the same name.
In an attempt to reconnect with the world, the lonesome loose lipped Wilson thrusts himself back into society, which leads to a reunion with his ex-wife Pippi (Laura Dern) and the discovery that he’s a father. Pippi had a baby girl shortly after they split seventeen years prior and put her up for adoption. Wilson convinces Pippi that their daughter Claire (Isabella Amara) deserves to know who her real parents are. »

Woody Harrelson is the life of this party, based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, the indie-comics legend whose work has inspired one film landmark in 2001's Ghost World (forget Art School Confidential). Wilson is not in that movie's league by a long shot, though you couldn't imagine a better interpreter of Clowes' world than Harrelson. That mischief in the actor's eyes keeps us intrigued by the film's title character, a neurotic grouch who rails against the Internet and other plagues of the modern age. Wilson also hates people – his main enjoyment, »
It’s always a pleasure to watch Laura Dern lose it on screen. And she does just that in both Wilson, the Daniel Clowes adaptation due out Friday, and the HBO limited series Big Little Lies. In the former, Pippi, a recovering addict, uses her handbag to unleash her frustration on her ex, the titular character (Woody Harrelson), but goes completely berserk when faced with judgments from her stuck-up sister (Cheryl Hines). Dern’s Big Little Lies matriarch, Renata Klein, isn’t quite so physical. But she unleashes a maelstrom of pained vitriol upon learning her daughter has been bitten by a peer.
Both characters’ complicated, unfettered female anger feels almost cathartic in this day and age, and when The A.V. Club sat down with Dern this weekend she did not hesitate to draw parallels between her work and the current political climate. We also tried (and for the »

The first part of any given year is usually pretty dry when it comes to awards contenders. As such, a lot of the time speculation surrounds who might end up in play, should their upcoming films be worthy of contention. Once such actor with a decent sized slate in 2017 is Woody Harrelson. Here is a man with Academy Award nominations to his name, but perhaps no driving force so far pushing him towards an Oscar. He also was just out and out snubbed in regards to receiving no attention last year for The Edge of Seventeen. Could that change this year? There’s a chance, but first, he begins by trying to please the crowd with his new comedy Wilson. It opens this week after a debut in January at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie, for those wondering, is a dark edged comedy, one with Harrelson playing the title character. »

Having just wrapped up her directorial debut A Happening of Monumental Proportions, written by Gary Lundy, starring Bradley Whitford, Katie Holmes, Common, and Allison Janney, Judy Greer talked about her work on Wilson.
Greer plays Shelly, professional dog sitter, who takes care of Wilson's (Woody Harrelson) fox terrier called Pepper. Wilson is a man without many friends because he always says what he considers to be the truth. While his life begins to spin out of control, with an ex-wife Pippi (Laura Dern), a furious former sister-in-law Polly (Cheryl Hines), and the discovery of a daughter named Claire (Isabella Amara), Shelly remains a calm - if half-forgotten by the story - port in his storm, until all comes full circle and we return to her with a surprising vengeance.

“Wilson” is pitched somewhere between “Bad Santa” and Rick Alverson’s “The Comedy,” inhabiting a familiar strain of American movies about profoundly unlikable people. It’s based on the 2010 graphic novel of the same name by Daniel Clowes, who excels at examining the lives of somber characters trapped in drab, isolating worlds. But even as the screenplay (which Clowes adapted) contains much of the source material’s pitch-black humor, it also falls short of realizing its subtle vision of an angry recluse learning to make peace with his surroundings.
A crazy-eyed Woody Harrelson portrays Wilson, a loudmouthed, middle-aged creep, and his performance captures the character’s fundamental appeal. Tackling this material was a tricky proposition, but the movie pulls off some endearing qualities thanks to director Craig Johnson, who last achieved a balance of gloomy comedy and a dark backdrop with “Skeleton Twins.” With “Wilson,” he appropriates the graphic novel »

Not all comic book adaptations are about superheroes. Take Wilson, the upcoming film adaptation of the Daniel Clowes graphic novel about a middle-aged, misanthropic loner who finds out he has a 17-year-old daughter.
Directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins) and starring Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Judy Greer, Isabella Amara, Margo Martindale, and Cheryl Hines, Wilson just made its Sundance Film Festival debut, and will get a theatrical release on March 24th in the Us (no word on the UK yet). It comes from a script written by Clowes himself and, from the looks of the trailer below, the film includes much of the heart and cynicism of the original comic.
Woody Harrelson's next film, Wilson, is set to make its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. We'll have our own Edward Douglas attend the festival in order to see and review the film, which is an adaptation of the graphic novel by the same name from Daniel Clowes. Clowes wrote the script for the film.
Wilson's got a couple of new trailers. One Red Band and one Green! Check them both out right here:
"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."

Fox Searchlight has debuted another trailer for the upcoming big-screen take on Daniel Clowes' (Ghost World, Ice Haven, Mister Wonderful) Wilson. Before he heads off to the galaxy far, far away, Woody Harrelson will star as the titular character of the acclaimed graphic novel, who makes one last-ditch effort to reconnect with his drug-addled ex-wife (Laura Dern) when he realizes they have a daughter together. The movie also stars Judy Greer (Jurassic World, Ant-Man, Tomorrowland) and Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm). Check out hilarious trailer below, and let us know what you think. Wilson is directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins), and is set to hit theaters in March. »

"I'm just lucky I figured it out a long time ago: life is lonely, and miserable." Fox Searchlight has revealed a second official trailer for the indie comedy Wilson, starring Woody Harrelson as the character Wilson, from the director of The Skeleton Twins. This is premiering at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival next week. Harrelson 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 cast includes Laura Dern (who looks awesome), Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines, Shaun Brown, David Warshofsky and Isabella Amara. This looks fun, and oddly charming at the same time, and I'm looking forward to checking it out at Sundance soon. Enjoy. Here's the new green band (see the red band) trailer for Craig Johnson's Wilson, direct from YouTube: Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who »

In 2014, Craig Johnson was one of the biggest Sundance breakouts thanks to “The Skeleton Twins,” an offbeat comedy about siblings in crisis that allowed stars Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader to unleash all of their comedic and dramatic sensibilities. Three years later, Johnson is returning to Park City with a movie that should afford Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern the same opportunity, and it once again finds an unsual family finding their way back to each other.
