Watch: Reese Witherspoon Screams It Out in First Trailer for ‘Wild’

The first trailer for Reese Witherspoon’s “Wild” shows her character living up to the movie title.

Witherspoon plays a self-destructive woman who tries to erase years of drug abuse and reckless sex with a hiking expedition.

“Dallas Buyers Club” helmer Jean-Marc Vallee directed the drama based on Cheryl Strayed’s hit memoir of the same title. The movie recounts Strayed’s 1,000-mile hike alone on the Pacific Crest Trail following years of dangerous behavior in the wake of her divorce and her mother’s death.

Utterly alone with her self-destructive thoughts, Witherspoon’s Cheryl lets out a therapeutic, ear-piercing scream in one scene.

The film also stars Laura Dern and Michiel Huisman.

“Wild” is slated for an awards season December 5 release.
