“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."

"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.

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.
