Tom Hanks in the adaptation of the world bestseller "A Man Called Otto"

The two-time Oscar-winner is again starring in a film that has pretensions towards the awards of the American Film Academy, and from the beginning of 2023, we will be able to watch the film in cinemas. There is no doubt that Tom Hanks is one of the most beloved faces in Hollywood.

During his 45-year career, he won two Oscars and is widely known to be one of the most successful movie stars in history. Forrest Gump, Philadelphia, Terminal, and Shipwrecked Life are just some of the films that marked Hanks as an actor for great roles and scenes that we can recognize from our everyday life.

A Man Called Otto

Exactly such a film with Hanks is coming to us early next year under the name "A Man Called Otto". It is a screen adaptation of the New York Times bestseller "A Man Called Ove". That novel by the Swedish author Fredrik Backman already has its domestic screen adaptation, which was the highest-grossing foreign film in the US in 2016 and received two Oscar nominations.

The just-released trailer shows us the everyday life of Otto Henderson (Tom Hanks), a widower and a businessman who keeps a watchful eye on order and discipline in his neighborhood. However, it is still more like criticizing and judging bitter neighbors.

But his gray routine will be turned upside down when a temperamental young family moves into the neighborhood. Only then can Otto see what happens when he accepts life as it is... In this comedy, in addition to Hanks, the cast also includes Mariana Treviño (Club the Cuervos), Rachel Keller (Fargo, Legion, Tokyo Vice) and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (The Magnificent Seven, The Lincoln Lawyer).

The director's job went to Marc Forster (The Dream of J.M. Barrie, World War Z) and the screenplay, based on the book, was written by David Magee, who earned an Oscar nomination with the films Life of Pi and Dream of the Life of J.M.

Barrie. It should certainly be mentioned that Hanks himself is on the production team, which will surely have a positive effect on the overall impression of this film. A New York Times #1 book, A Man Called Otto has sold more than three million copies, and readers around the world have nothing but praise for this life drama with elements of humor.

Therefore, both readers and movie audiences are eagerly awaiting the beginning of next year when the movie "A Man Called Otto" arrives in theaters. And Tom Hanks and films with a life story are always a real "treat" and an experience that delights both the audience and the critics every time.
