News of the World | Official Trailer | Universal Pictures


In theaters Christmas, News of the World stars Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks in a moving story co-written and directed by Paul Greengrass, reuniting for the first time since their collaboration on 2013 Best Picture nominee Captain Phillips. Greengrass wrote the film with Lion scribe Luke Davies based on the National Book Award finalist and best-selling novel by Paulette Jiles.

Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a widower and veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe. In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna (Helena Zengel, System Crasher), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. Johanna, hostile to a world she’s never experienced, is being returned 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.
