Watch Tom Hanks Spread ‘News of the World’ in Trailer for Upcoming Western

The official trailer to Paul Greengrass' upcoming film News of the World has arrived.

Based on the novel by Paulette Jiles, the upcoming Western stars Tom Hanks as a Civil War veteran named Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, who travels across America to tell non-fictional stories about presidents, queens, international feuds, world disasters and other news to small-town folks. Kidd's journey is unexpectedly joined by Johanna, a 10-year-old girl, to find her biological aunt and uncle. Beyond directing the film, Greengrass also penned the script, alongside Luke Davies, while James Newton Howard, an eight-time Oscar-nominated composer, wrote the score.
