Bridge Of Spies - US Trailer


In 1960, the hard work of many good people was tested greatly. The height of the Cold War was set to see a series of peaceful negotiation between the Americans and Russians, but a week beforehand, everything changed. An American spy plane was shot down by Russian missiles, carrying pictures of various Russian air force bases. While the US government tried to deny the charges, the Russians were able to provide the pictures, the airplane wreckage, and the pilot - miraculously unharmed. In exchange for his return, they wanted one of their captured spies to be returned. James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks), a simple lawyer, was tasked with creating a case to allow the US government to release the Soviet spy without jail time - a request that seemed almost impossible in the face of Cold War prejudice.

Tom Hanks Hits Headlines Again For The Wrong Reasons After Son Chet's Latest Mess


Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks' career may be as hectic as ever, but now he's got his home life to stress over as his 24-year-old son Chester continues to hit headlines for the most controversial of reasons. Now, he's wanted by British police after allegedly, excuse the cliché, trashing a hotel room.

Chet Hanks looking a lot more innocentChet Hanks looking a lot more innocent

It seems Chet Hanks is desperate to achieve some kind of recognition, but instead of going down the route of his father and older brother Colin Hanks as a super serious movie star, he's opting for more of a rock 'n' roll lifestyle instead; which, in his case, apparently means drinking to excess and smashing up the furniture of his room in London and causing £1,200 damages.

Al Pacino Admits He's A Fan Of Tom Hanks 'I've Written Him Fan Mail!'


Al Pacino Tom Hanks

He might be famous for being an Oscar winning gangster actor, but Al Pacino takes on a role a little out of his comfort zone with 'Danny Collins'; a biographical movie about an up and coming musician inspired by John Lennon, who later receives a letter from his hero some 40 years after it was actually written.

Pacino has already confessed to having reservations about the eponymous part because it involves singing, but there was definitely certain attractions in the character's personality that gripped him nonetheless; mainly the fact that the script reminded him of the kind of movie that one of his favourite actors Tom Hanks would get involved with.

Tom Hanks Summarises Dan Brown Series As He Continues To Shoot 'Inferno'


Tom Hanks Dan Brown Ron Howard

Tom Hanks has captivated us with his role as a brooding Harvard professor since 2006, when he appeared in the adaptation of Dan Brown's 'The Da Vinci Code'. Now on to the third film, he returns for another dose of menacing mystery, death-defying adventure and intellectual premise.

Tom Hanks at 2014 BAFTAsTom Hanks will star in Dan Brown's 'Inferno'

'The Da Vinci Code' (Dan Brown's second novel) was a global phenomenon which portrayed Hanks' character Robert Langdon on a quest for the Holy Grail. The following prequel 'Angels & Demons', explored the creation of the universe and conspiracy within mankind. 'Inferno' - the third film directed by Ron Howard - takes another turn completely and sees Langdon with a lot more of a challenge on his hands.

Ron Howard Reveals 'Inferno' Is 'Very Much A Psychological Thriller'


Ron Howard Tom Hanks Dan Brown

Ron Howard returns with more theology based mystery with 'Inferno'; the film adaptation from Dan Brown's series of Robert Langdon novels which will once again star Tom Hanks in the lead role. While you might guess there'll be more puzzles, narrow escapes from death and questions of faith, the director insists there's something a little bit different about this one.

Probably best known for the second of his novel series, 2003's 'The Da Vinci Code', Dan Brown returned with 'Inferno' in 2013 - and there's little surprise that this is another to hit cinema screens. The Golden Globe nominated 'Da Vinci Code' adaptation was followed by a prequel - 'Angels & Demons' - which included themes of science, revenge and global conspiracy, much apart from the Holy Grail quest of the former. But now, with 'Inferno', the depths of the universe are even more closely explored.

36 year old Corden made his debut as host of ‘The Late Late Show’ on CBS at the end of March after replacing the retiring Craig Ferguson, and quickly won plaudits for his warm, friendly presenting style. Speaking with Heat magazine, he said he was “gobsmacked” by the response from audiences.

Carly Rae Jepsen: Working With Tom Hanks Was 'One Of The Best Days Of My Life'


Carly Rae Jepsen Tom Hanks

If there's one thing Carly Rae Jepsen never expected to be doing, it's watching film legend Tom Hanks mime her lyrics on the set of a music video. But that's exactly what happened with her new tune 'I Really Like You'. It's safe to say, she really likes Tom Hanks.

If you haven't seen the video already, you're the worst. Just kidding. It features the 'Captain Phillips' star going about his day to day business on a cold day in New York, with the hilariously peculiar twist that he's apparently singing the words to Jepsen's new single 'I Really Like You'; the first from her forthcoming studio album. Yes; we immediately imagined Hanks singing along to 'Call Me Maybe' too. If only. And despite his credentials as an amazing double Oscar-winning Hollywood superstar, he was surprisingly easy to bring on board.

Tom Hanks And Wilson From 'Cast Away' Reunited At Rangers Game


Tom Hanks

In a heartwarming tale of old friends being reunited in unlikely circumstances, Tom Hanks and Wilson from Cast Away were brought back together on Thursday, during a New York Rangers game. Wilson of course was the volleyball friend of Hank’s character Chuck Noland in the 2000 movie, though it all does lead us to wonder what a volleyball was doing at a hockey game.

In the film Hanks played a FedEx employee who is the sole survivor of a plane crash and spends four years living on a deserted island before finally being rescued. To help keep him company Noland turns a volleyball from one of the plane’s washed up package into a companion named Wilson.

Another reason why being famous rocks - the Get Out Of Jury Duty Free card. Brad Pitt has been allowed to skip the usually mandatory legal proceedings is case he proves too distracting for the other jurors in the box.

You have to admit if you found yourself plonked next to one of Hollywood's most recognisable actors in court, you really wouldn't be interested in listening to evidence being given no matter how professional you are. And it seems that that has been taken into account with his recent calling to jury service in Los Angeles being cancelled. Lucky guy.

Can you believe it's twenty years since Robert Zemeckis's Forrest Gump was first released? The weepy drama that won the 1994 Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Director, Best Visual Effects, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Film Editing has gone into film history as not only a great movie, but one of Tom Hanks' finest performances.

It's hard to imagine any other actor in the role of the titular Forrest, yet Bill Murray, Chevy Chase and John Travolta all turned down the opportunity, and Hanks himself had to audition just like everybody else. Take a look below at his touching audition tape, also starring Robin Wright and an adorably little Haley Joel Osment, who even helps Hanks out with a line.

Ever wondered why Andy’s dad never appears in Toy Story? Maybe you have or maybe you didn't want to, for fear the truth might be too depressing. Well guess what? It is.

Toy StoryIn all three Toy Story movies we never see Andy's father.

Pixar enthusiast Joe Negroni has a theory, a very plausible one, about why Andy’s father is never seen nor mentioned in Toy Story. Negroni, is a bit of a Pixar detective, having previously hypothesised that Jesse’s first owne,r Emily, is in fact Andy’s mother. That’s a much happier theory then the one we are about to delve into.
