A book-turned-movie called Wonder has just released its first trailer and we all know that some stories are bound to make you cry, and the new trailer for Wonder is sure to leave audiences sobbing.
Wonder, based on New York Times bestseller novel by R.J. Palacio and screen written by Raquel Jaramillo, screens the which challenges faced by a young boy born with facial differences, entering into a new school after years spent in and out of hospitals. Wonder captures the life of fifth-grader Auggie Pullman played by Jacob who struggles as he begins school from fifth grade, gets bullied and finds it difficult to make friends.
But with the help of his parents, played by Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson, he sets out to teach his classmates and teachers that he’s just an ordinary kid; basically, we’re dealing with some grade-A weepie material here. Auggie eventually discovers how true friendship can see past outward appearances. Wonder will release in theatres, November of this year and the movie will definitely tug the heartstrings of audience.
Jacob Tremblay has previously played in Oscar-nominated film Room and with co-stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Mandy Patinkin and Daveed Diggs, the adorable ‘wonder’ kid will surely create wonder on the golden screen. The focus of the movie seems to be summed up in one line in the trailer: “You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.” That line somehow tends to give goose-bumps to many. What do you think about it?
