Sony Pictures shared a trailer for the movie ‘Here,’ featuring Tom Hanks and Robin Wright.   The film adaptation of the Richard McGuire graphic novel of the same name is written and directed by Robert Zemeckis, who previously collaborated with Hanks and Wright on the 1994 Oscar-winning film, Forrest Gump.  “Here” also marks the sixth collaboration between director Zemeckis and Hanks.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Hanks, 67, and Wright, 58,  are de-aged in the movie through the generative AI-driven tool called Metaphysic Live. Zemeckis explained last year that “With ‘Here’, the film simply wouldn’t work without our actors seamlessly transforming into younger versions of themselves. It only works because the performances are so good. Both Tom and Robin understood instantly that, ‘Okay, we have to go back and channel what we were like 50 years ago or 40 years ago, and we have to bring that energy, that kind of posture, and even raise our voices higher. That kind of thing.”

Per an official film synopsis, ‘Here’ tells the story of “multiple families and the special place they inhabit,” traveling through generations and “capturing the human experience in its purest form.”  The film tells the century-long story of a single house and all the different people who lived there, with the camera siting at a fixed angle for the entire 104-minute duration without moving.

The trailer features Hanks and Wright depicted as teenagers and at different ages, all the way into their 80s, with the cast also including Paul Bettany, Kelly Reilly, Michelle Dockery, Gwilym Lee, David Fynn and Ophelia Lovibond.

HERE opens in theaters Nov. 15; check out the trailer at this link.
