Coming Distractions: The trailer for Wonder looks a lot like a grade-school version of Mask

10 August 2017 8:28 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Movies like Wonder basically have “emotional button-pushing” baked into their very DNA. It’s the story of a young boy with facial disfigurement who is entering the fifth grade in a public school for the first time, trying to find friends, all while enduring the cruelties of other children. It has the obvious potential to be mawkish, sentimental pap—and god help us, we’re probably going to cry like newborn babies the second it starts, regardless of any cheap tactics, damn it all.

Still, there’s some hope for optimism here. It’s co-written and directed by Stephen Chbosky, the man behind the refreshingly blunt The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. It’s got solid talent like Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as the parents, Daveed Diggs as a teacher, and suddenly omnipresent Jacob Tremblay (Room, Before I Wake, Shut In, The Book Of Henry, the forthcoming The Predator »

Yes No Maybe So: Jacob Tremblay is a "Wonder"

25 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

From a distance the forthcoming film Wonder (2017) looks like Mask (1985) for the junior high set. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Rj Palacio about Auggie, a boy who enters school after years of home schooling due to his many surgeries and complications with a rare facial deformity. Jacob Tremblay, in demand post Room, plays the main character Auggie. The film is directed by Stephen Chbosky who already has some experience with transferring Ya novels to the screen since he transferred his own for his directorial debut The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012). Wonder is his sophomore effort though this time he left the screenwriting to another. Steven Conrad, who previously adapted The Pursuit of Happyness and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to screen, adapts.

Played by up-and-comer Jacob Tremblay, who wowed audiences for his performance in “Room,” Auggie just wants to be treated like any other kid.
