First Look Photo: Toms Hanks in 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close'
Oh I'm sure this is going to be the talk of the awards season, but for now here's our first look. As part of Warner Bros' new Fall Preview, a photo from Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close adaptation was unveiled. The film stars quite a cast, but focuses on Thomas Horn as Oskar Schell. Tom Hanks plays his father, Sandra Bullock his mother. If you're not familiar, the story is about a nine-year-old boy from Manhattan whose father died on 9/11. Two years later, the boy discovers a key belonging to his father, which sends him on a search through the city. And that's why this is such a touching first look reveal.
Here's the first look photo and thanks to Collider for high res. Not much, but I'm sure more is coming soon!
