News of the World Trailer

"Well you can certainly handle a horse." Universal has revealed a 60-second TV teaser trailer for News of the World, the new Paul Greengrass movie still currently scheduled to open in theaters on Christmas Day later this year. This adventure western movie stars Tom Hanks as a Civil War vet and widower who now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller. In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna, a 10-year-old taken by the Kiowa people and raised as one of their own. She's being sent to her biological aunt and uncle against her will. Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home. Also starring Helena Zengel (from System Crasher), Elizabeth Marvel, Mare Winningham, Neil Sandilands, Chukwudi Iwuji, and Christopher Hagen. Thanks to Hanks this looks great! There is a sweet side to it I wasn't expecting.

Here's the first short teaser trailer for Paul Greengrass' News of the World, direct from YouTube:

A widowed Civil War veteran, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks), now moves from town to town as a non-fiction news storyteller, sharing the stories of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe.

They travel hundreds of miles and face grave dangers as they search for a place that either can call home. News of the World is directed by English filmmaker Paul Greengrass, director of the movies Resurrected, The Theory of Flight, Bloody Sunday, The Bourne Supremacy, United 93, The Bourne Ultimatum, Green Zone, Captain Phillips, and Jason Bourne most recently. The screenplay is written by Luke Davies and Paul Greengrass, adapted from the novel of the same name by Paulette Jiles. Produced by Gary Goetzman, Gregory Goodman, and Gail Mutrux. Universal will release Greengrass' News of the World in theaters (whatever is still open) starting on Friday, December 25th, on Christmas Day, later this year. First impression? Who's interested?
