San Diego Comic-Con is over, but apparently we aren’t done getting trailers. Today we get our first look at Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Last year, the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor was a hit among both critics and audiences, and this biopic looks like it might be headed in that direction too. Check it out:
While I don’t have as strong a connection to Mr. Rogers as seemingly the rest of the world, I did really like this trailer. It definitely looks like the feel-good movie of the year. And while Tom Hanks as several career defining roles, it looks like he was born to play Mr. Rogers. I see it as almost a sure thing that he will earn his first Oscar nomination in almost 2 decades for this role.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood hits theaters Thanksgiving.
