First Glance: “Wander”


It was only a few days ago that I was asking someone about Aaron Eckhart. And wouldn’t you know it, over the weekend a trailer dropped for his new film called “Wander”. I’ve always liked Eckhart and this new thriller from director April Mullen gives him what looks like a meaty role. It also helps to have the great Tommy Lee Jones attached. That’s a pretty solid one-two punch.

The new trailer isn’t the easiest to decipher but the story goes something like this. Eckhart plays a mentally unhinged private detective who’s as close to the edge as possible without falling over. He’s brought into a small town to investigate a murder which he grows to believe is connected to the death of his daughter. He also believes there is a huge cover-up that he is determined to expose. But is there really some big conspiracy or is the detective’s mind playing tricks on him? The film also stars Heather Graham and Katheryn Winnick.

“Wander” is set for release December 4th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. I saw this trailer a few days ago. Looks good. It’s good to see Aaron Eckhart again in a meaty role and to share the screen with Tommy Lee Jones.

    BTW, have you seen the trailer for Stardust?

    Wow… David Bowie fans HATE this trailer as do I. If I did a reaction video for this, it would’ve had me twitching and nit-pick over every kind of inaccuracy that’s in the trailer as I heard the film got mixed reviews but it’s more damning to know that it was made against the wishes of Bowie’s family.

      • Well, when you choose to make a movie without the approval and permission of his estate. They pretty much have the right to not have his music used in the film. Can’t say I blame them. Duncan Jones made the final call to tell the producers of that film that they cannot use any of his father’s music. Not one fucking note. Bowie never wanted a bio-pic of his life because he knew it’d be dreadful. Watching that trailer gave me the same feeling I had when I watched Bohemian Rhapsody. I hate that movie.

  2. Aaron Eckhart + Tommy Lee Jones = winning casting right there. Not such a big fan of yet another of these disturbed and possibly-too-disturbed-for-his-own-good detective plots but again, the right cast can and will sell me on it.
