New Wilson Trailer Has Nothing To Do With Tom Hanks' Volleyball Friend

A new trailer has been released for Wilson, the movie adaptation of Daniel Clowes' graphic novel of the same name. We've previously seen a red band trailer for Wilson, but this new one features… well, some new footage, and a lot of the same footage, but with all the curse words removed.

First (Red Band) Trailer for Daniel Clowes' Wilson Hits the Net

Daniel Clowes' graphic novel Wilson was originally published in 2010, and Fox Searchlight nabbed the film rights shortly thereafter.

Daniel Clowes' The Landlord Headed To HBO With Dayton And Faris

Two of Daniel Clowes comics have been successfully adapted for cinema before, with Terry Zwigoff adapting both Ghost World and Art School Confidential, and there are more in the works, with Alexander Payne's version of Wilson the most keenly anticipated.
