The movie industry can make some really special pieces when all things come together, the actors, producers, directors, special effects team, everyone involved, not to mention the script itself and the love for the script. You might as well search for the best online bingo sites, to try your luck, instead of hoping for something like that to happen. Well, every once in a while it does, and you see wonders like the Shawshank Redemption, The Titanic, not to mention the Lord of the Rings series.
Some of the old guard actors always wanted to play various personalities, public figures and the like. Not all movies based on real-life events make it and are great pieces of art. But, when you have Tom Hanks playing one of the nicest people to ever live, the TV legend Fred Rogers, you can’t really go wrong. You could, but they seem like they won’t. The first trailer for the upcoming movie A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood was just released and people are already commenting wildly.
The Trailer – What We Know so Far
Tom Hanks is shown playing the legendary Fred Rogers, on set and off it. The movie trailer starts with Tom Hanks singing the famous It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, as well as showing us scenes from what is likely to be a bonding moment between Rogers and the character of Matther Rhys, a reporter bent on finding the dark secrets he assumed Fred Rogers had. The scenes change to reflect the loving personality of Rogers and the inquisitive reporter. As the trailer develops, we see that the reporter’s girlfriend/wife asks him not to ruin her childhood, hinting at him digging through Rogers’ life. But, as the trailer nears its end, it is shown that Rogers is indeed the man you see on the screen, a loving and caring man who loves taking care of all things broken, especially broken humans who are in need of a simple caring sentence or a note on the piano, as he said in the trailer.
When the trailer hit, it quickly saw more than 12 million views. With that in mind, people are obviously expecting to see Tom Hanks starring as the iconic Fred Rogers, especially people who had seen his show and know what kind of person he was. Others, well, they will most likely search for Fred Rogers after they see the movie, learning about what a man dedicated to service had done for humanity.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is looking like it is going to be a great movie, just like the person it is about, the great Fred Rogers.
