Jacob Tremblay has already proved his acting abilities in Room alongside Brie Larson. Now he's getting a new chance to shine, this time with Julia Roberts as his protective maternal unit, in Wonder. Watch the first trailer for the new drama.

With Steve Conrad and Jack Thorne adapting R.J. Palacio's bestselling novel, Wonder finds Tremblay as August "Auggie" Pullman. A lad born with facial differences, he's been through a number of painful surgeries to alleviate his various conditions and has lived most of his life to date being home schooled.

Now, though, he's ready to confront the challenges of his peers, and finds that compassion and acceptance aren't always easy to come by. But he ends up with friends regardless and learns that you can't really blend in when you're born to stand out.

Stephen Chbosky is the director here, and Owen Wilson, Daveed Diggs and Mandy Patinkin are all part of the cast for the film, which arrives in UK cinemas on 8 December after its launch in the States on 17 November. From the looks of the trailer, you might want to stock up on the tissues for this one, which is engineered to strike the tear ducts and pluck at the heart strings.
