With the Sundance London line-up announcement, this morning which sees Woody Harrelson’s Wilson making its debut at the festival we get to take a peek at the first official hilarious red band trailer and poster.
Harrelson, who is currently in London this week promoting Lost in London and will be seen in the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, plays a middle-aged man, estranged from his wife and has absolutely no concept of other people’s personal space in the trailer. On finding out he has a daughter who was put up for adoption entices her to play stalker, but not before she gives him a good handbag hiding, in order to get to know and go totally Dad crazy when he sees her being bullied. It’s classic loopy Harrelson in a role that has such warmhearted intentions but goes about the whole business in an eccentric and outrageous fashion.
The Fox Searchlight film is directed by The Skeleton Twins’ Craig Johnson and stars Woody Harrelson as the eccentric Wilson, Laura Dern as his neurotic estranged wife, Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines and Isabella Amara as their long lost daughter which Wilson was never even aware of.

Wilson Official Synopsis
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.
WILSON arrives in select UK cinemas on June 9.
