Starring Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers
First look at Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers in upcoming biopic
I feel like the existence of Won't You Be My Neighbor? renders something like this unnecessary, right?
I mean, I'll see it for Hanks but I'm not sure why this needed to exist, personally.
something about that trailer is super weird and I can't figure out what
didn't really do much for me either way
Won't You Be My Neighbor was amazing. and I'm all in to sit in a theatre and cry watching Tom Hanks be amazing haha
Mr Rogers and Tom Hanks both have super distinctive voices and he sounds nothing like Mr Rogers, it's hard because just doing an impression isn't necessarily good in movies either
yeah I was surprised he didn't try sounding closer to him, but when I thought about it maybe that wouldn't have been for the best.
Philip is going deep undercover.
I think it almost has an ominous tone in the first half of the trailer, which is very odd.
I’m still super excited to see something this wholesome, and the fact that Matthew Rhys is in it too just sends it over the top.
This certainly isn't necessary but I'm here for a feel good movie
If anything, I hope this makes more people aware of how pure Mr. Rogers was. Always nice to see Matthew Rhys in stuff.
But what is the conflict of this story? Is it just two hours of Mr Rodgers being a nice guy and everyone else being like "damn he's such a nice guy"
The current nicest guy in entertainment playing the all time nicest guy in entertainment.
The feel good movie to end all feel good movies.
This story doesn’t need conflict, it’s Mr. Rogers. I do think there will be some internal conflict coming from Matthew Rhys and how Fred changes his life, but that’s probably it.
Gonna be a great thanksgiving seeing this and Knives Out back-to-back Lol
a thousand percent yes
The journalist who Matthew Rhys’s character is based on wrote a really interesting (and long) article in the Atlantic. Would recommend.
My Friend Mister Rogers
Saw this last night. This would have been much more effective if I hadn't have already seen the doc last year, but Tom Hanks is always a joy to watch even if this wasn't really a standout film/performance. Still worth a watch. Heller does a good job directing and it's a heartfelt little film.
I haven't watched either. Which would you recommend?
I'll watch anything with Tom Hanks and this was good, so I don't want to discourage you from seeing it, but the doc is better. With both films, the "thesis" is basically, "Mr. Rogers had a lasting effect on every person he met, regardless of age" - I feel like seeing the ACTUAL Mr. Rogers have this effect on people hits harder than seeing Tom Hanks in that role. Both are worth your time, but if you only watch one, watch the doc.
Getting more excited for this as it gets closer. When I saw The Irishman all of the trailers were for super dark and heavy movies and then this one was thrown in because clearly Mr. Rogers is of universal interest.
Not expecting it to hit me as hard as the doc, but I'm still looking forward to it.
I saw this last night and absolutely loved it. Hanks is wonderful, per usual.
The first half of this film is the literal manifestation of a cup of warm tea on a rainy day. The second half of the film is an episode of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood for adults on how to handle the anger and resentment we develop as children.
It's a perfect Thanksgiving movie for the family, and a can't miss for anyone who grew up watching Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.
