Jacob Tremblay, who was robbed of an Oscar nomination for his incredible performance in Room, appears to be putting in yet another standout turn as August. Now we get our first look at the movie with a trailer and poster.
The film also stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as Auggie's parents, Isabel and Nate Pullman, and Hamilton'sDaveed Diggs as his insightful teacher, Mr. Browne. With support coming from Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts, Wionder will be in cinemas later this year.
"My name is Auggie Pullman", Tremblay begins the trailer. He goes on to explain that he has had 27 surgeries, but none of them have been able to make it look "ordinary". "You just have to say that because you're my mom", he tearfully responds. "Because I know you the most", his mother replies. Based on the best-selling book, the film tells the story of a boy named Auggie who was born with severe conditions that prevented him from attending a normal school. 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.
Directed by Stephen Chbosky, the film is set to be released in USA theaters on November 17.
