In non-superhero comic book adaptation news, today also brought the first trailer for Wilson, based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. Terry Zwigoff’s film of Clowes’ Ghost World was one of the best movies of the 00’s, featuring a career best performance from Steve Buscemi while introducing many viewers to a young actress by the name of Scarlett Johansson. Will Wilson be as well praised or receive a more muted response along the lines of Zwigoff/Clowes’ followup Art School Confidential? We shall see in the spring.
Wilson stars Woody Harrelson & Laura Dern. Clowes wrote the screenplay. The film, directed by Craig Johnson, opens March 24th, 2017.
