Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay’s “Wonder” adaptation will hit theaters on April 7, 2017, Lionsgate announced on Tuesday, along with the release dates of Miles Teller firefighter pic “Granite Mountain” and Pantelion comedy “How to Be a Latin Lover.”

“Granite Mountain” is now scheduled to bow on Sept. 22, 2017, and “How to Be a Latin Lover” on April 28, 2017.

    I read an interview with Miles Teller. What an absolute douchebag! He is so full of himself it’s ridiculous. I’ll pass on his movies.

      I have been following the development of this film because of the director, Joseph Kosinski. I can tell you this about the film, it is an ensemble piece, therefore your worries about this being a Miles Teller film is unwarranted. He is playing a supporting character and will just be one of the 19 firefighters.
