EXCLUSIVE: Your first look at News of the World—reuniting Tom Hanks with Captain Phillips director Paul Greengrass—is here. Hanks plays Captain Jefferson Kidd, a widower who travels through the Texas desert to perform a one-man show about true stories from afar. His goal, apart from gathering coins in his cup, is to bring people together and expand their perspective of the world. “When the fabric of society is in tatters, you’ve got a character in Kidd, who in his lonely, singular, small way is a thread who connects one community to another,” director Paul Greengrass tells V.F. about the film, which is based on the novel by Paulette Jiles. Just as now, journalism sparked anger then if it conflicted with the reader (or listener’s) existing worldview. “Information was suspect,” says Greengrass. “The world was filled with rumors and false narratives. Audiences were never sure whom they could trust to tell them the truth." Read more about the film, due out on December 25, at the link in bio. ?: Bruce Talamon/Universal Pictures
