New Trailer for Larry Crowne Starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts
06.14.11 by Ryan
Academy Award–winning actor Tom Hanks hadn't written and directed a movie since 1996's That Thing You Do!, but the upcoming comedy Larry Crowne sees Hanks directing himself as the title character from a script he co-wrote with Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). While only his second directorial effort, Hanks told BANG Showbiz at the London Premiere that he wasn't nervous about directing the movie.
I was worried about less things because my powers of communication, my skills of talking to all the department heads were a little bit better than last time around. It's such a personal thing that I can't really delineate between the work and the social aspect of making the movie. We had a great time, we were around great people.
Larry Crowne sees Hank as a middle-aged man who is downsized and returns to college to get his degree. There he falls for one of his professors (Julia Roberts). The first trailer for the movie debuted in March, following a preview clip that was released earlier that month. The latest trailer expands on the story and romance between Hanks and Roberts, while also revealing the movie's extensive supporting cast.
Larry Crowne co-stars Wilmer Valderrama, Bryan Cranston, Cedric the Entertainer, and Taraji P. Henson.
