The couple were confirmed to be the first major Hollywood stars to contract the virus, and they are now in quarantine down in Australia where Baz Luhrman‘s Elvis Presley biopic was in production.

Did you know there’s a new war movie starring Tom Hanks headed our way? It’s called Greyhound, and Hanks both wrote and stars in the film, which has America’s favorite actor playing a US Navy Commander during World War II. The film is an adaptation of a 1955 novel called The Good Shepherd – which is a title this movie probably couldn’t use since Robert De Niro’s 2006 CIA movie already took it. Watch the Greyhound trailer below.

In an exclusive A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood clip below, Hanks and the folks behind the movie talk about one of the important elements the actor had to work with: Puppets!

Elvis Movie Cast

Elvis Presley has been prominently featured in a number of films, ranging from the horror comedy of Bubba Ho-Tep to the meeting of Elvis and Tricky Dick in Elvis & Nixon. But there hasn’t been a definitive biopic about the man who was dubbed the King of Rock and Roll. That’s about to change with Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrman tackling the musician’s life, and another name has just been added to the film’s cast. Rufus Sewell (A Knight’s Tale, The Man in the High Castle) has joined the Elvis biopic as The King’s “reserved, soft-spoken” father Vernon Presley. Read More »

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Trailer

The two major differences between Tom Hanks and Daniel Day-Lewis are their approaches to craft and how they answer questions on press tours. Everything else is window dressing.

Both are fierce, profoundly gifted actors. Both are deep wells of creativity. Yet even though each actor is equally at home in torturous dramas and whimsical romps, we never think of them in the same breath. Hanks is your next door neighbor; Day-Lewis is the eccentric guy who lives in the haunted house up the hill.

One is a capital-S Serious Actor, and the other lip syncs in Carly Rae Jepsen’s video. Now, I’m not saying Hanks could play Lincoln (or that Day-Lewis could handle Carly). I’m saying that Hanks’ well-rounded mainstream accessibility and well-honed persona as America’s Grandpa obscures his own capital-S status as one of the best actors of a generation.
