‘Wilson’ Trailer: Life Is Lonely, Miserable, and Hilarious
It seems depression is becoming a hotter topic for comedians these days, with many TV shows and movies out there to surprise us with how funny feeling miserable all the time can be. BoJack Horseman is billed as a comedy show but often it’s more of a drama, exploring all kinds of neuroses within its main characters while sidestepping completely happy endings for all of its season finales. Woody Harrelson’s Wilson seems to do much of the same, introducing us to a character who is just a complete mess and giving him an opportunity to try his best to sort his life out.

You know those actors you’ve always wanted to see reunite in a movie but never thought in your wildest dreams you’d get the chance? Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern both co-starred in 2005’s The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio, and now they’re together again for Wilson, a comedy from The Skeleton Twins director Craig Johnson. Johnson has proven to be adept at handling complicated family relationships while keeping a wry sense of humor the whole time, and in its first trailer, Wilson looks to be just that.
