It's great to see Tom Hanks do some comedy again. I really hope his new movie Larry Crowne ends up being good, because with a trailer like this it could go either way. I've always enjoyed the films that Hanks' has made, in fact I don't think there's one movie of his that I didn't like. The guy is just fun to watch, so hopefully this romantic comedy delivers a good story and some fun laughs.
Here's the Synopsis:
Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves... often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot, who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband.
The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.
The film will be released on July 1st, and also stars Julia Roberts, Bryan Cranston, Cedric the Entertainer and Taraji P. Henson. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think. Does it looks good to you?
