Netflix debuts Official Trailer for Paul Greengrass‘s ‘News Of The World’ starring Tom Hanks

Netflix has released the official trailer for Paul Greengrass‘s acclaimed new western drama, NEWS OF THE WORLD, starring Tom Hanks, which will now be released exclusively on Netflix on Wednesday 10th February 2021.

Co-written by Greengrass and Luke Davies, and based on the 2016 novel of the same name by Paulette Jiles, NEWS OF THE WORLD reunites Greengrass and Hanks for the first time since their 2013 Best Picture OSCAR nominee, Captain Phillips.

Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a 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), 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.
