Optimum Releasing have released the UK (International) Trailer via MSNUK for LARRY CROWNE. Directed by and starring Tom Hanks as a middle aged man who loses his job and has to re-invent himself by returning to college; Julia Roberts plays his teacher.
In a recent interview Tom Hanks recently said that he was intimidated with directing Julia Roberts, but also revealed that he actually hand picked her to be the college professor that he would fall in love with; as she reminded him of the teachers he was in love with in his college days!
“I had some teachers who looked like Julia, I would see them and think, ‘I love you’,” he teased. “So there was never anyone but Julia. Still, even after she said yes, I was the boss. That meant I got to say, ‘You don’t wear this dress, you wear that dress’. And Julia’s Julia – she can be intimidating.”
Larry Crowne boasts a massive cast which includes Peter Scolari, Bryan Cranston, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wilmer Valderrama, Jon Seda, Cedric the Entertainer, Taraji P. Henson, Rami Malek, Malcolm Barrett, Maria Canals Barrera, George Takei, Holmes Osborne, Pam Grier, Grace Gummer, Rita Wilson, Dale Dye and Bob Stephenson.
LARRY CROWNE will be in cinemas on July 1st in UK , Ireland and USA
Oscar® winners Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts reunite for a dramatic comedy about how the hard knocks from today’s recession inspire one everyday guy to undergo a personal reinvention: Larry Crowne. Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne (Hanks) was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he’s worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves…often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband. The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.
