Formerly titled The Wilderness of James, there’s a new trailer for director Michael Johnson‘s debut feature, All the Wilderness. The film looks like a fairly standard coming-of-age story, except for the fact that it looks like it will be better executed than the vast majority of movies with which it shares thematic DNA. Perri really enjoyed the film out of SXSW this past March, so it’s got that in its corner as well.
Hit the jump for the All the Wilderness trailer and poster. The film also stars Virginia Madsen, Isabelle Fuhrman, Danny Devito and Evan Ross. It hits theaters, iTunes and VOD on February 20th.

Here’s the official synopsis for All the Wilderness:
James (Kodi-Smit-McPhee) has shut himself off from his surroundings, falling into a world of imagination and darkness. Visits with his psychiatrist (Danny Devito) have proven unhelpful – though he takes a liking to fellow patient, Val (Isabelle Fuhrman). As James begins to rebel against his single mother (Virginia Madsen), he ventures into the night where he meets a mysterious kid (Evan Ross) who welcomes him into an eccentric city. Relationships are put to the test as James navigates unfamiliar territory, wrestling with the reality of his own personal wilderness.
