First Trailer For Brian Wilson Biopic Love & Mercy

God only knows why we've had to wait so long for a starry biopic about Brian Wilson.
 
For five long decades he's stood as one of the most influential if controversial figures in music - so understandably we’re getting in a tizzy about the first teaser trailer for Love & Mercy, starring John Cusack and Paul Dano as the Beach Boys legend.
 
The pair play Wilson at different points in his life: the younger man grappling with overnight success, the older version moping about his plush home in a bathrobe ruminating on the ups and downs of a turbulent career. Word from last September’s Toronto Film Festival is that it's pretty great.
 
Neither side of the story appears to shy away from the star's well documented battles with mental illness, either - particularly Dano’s firebrand, who we see displaying early erratic behaviour and roundly worrying studio execs along with his bandmates.
 
Oh, and with Wilson much more sound of mind today - he's set to release his new album No Pier Problems in early April - we can expect something of a happy ending. 
 
For the man who brought us Pet Sounds, he deserves that much.
 
Love & Mercy is out in cinemas from 5 June
