news of the world review

Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd is a newsman. No, he doesn’t report the news. Nor does he work for a newspaper. Instead, he drifts from town to town on his rickety horse-drawn cart and brings the news to those too weary, too busy, and otherwise unable to read it themselves. For a small fee, Kidd will stand up in front of a meeting room and comb through the pages of newspapers, looking for stories to tell. And not just any stories. “Something to take us away from our troubles,” he tells the crowds over and over again. It’s a lovely little concept, and when you have Tom Hanks as the guy telling the stories, it’s hard not to hang on every word.

Look at him. Look at him. Tom Hanks is the captain now in News of the World, a western which reunites him with his Captain Phillips director Paul Greengrass. Hanks plays Captain Jefferson Kidd (I told you he was the captain!), a man who travels across the plains reading the news to small-town folk who otherwise would never hear it.

This is the actor’s first western, and it looks like the kind of old-school throwback that doesn’t come around too often in the modern Hollywood landscape. Check out the brand new trailer below.

News of the World first look
