Catch Tom Hanks in the new ‘News of the World’ trailer.

Tom Hanks stars in the new full trailer for upcoming western News of the World.

Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, 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, 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.

Written and directed by Paul Greengrass, based on the National Book Award finalist and best-selling novel by Paulette Jiles, the film also stars Elizabeth Marvel, Mare Winningham and Chukwudi Iwuji.

News of the World is set to land on the big screen in selected territories at Christmas.
