News of the World Poster

January 15, 2021



Universal Pictures is proud to present Tom Hanks starring in News of the World, a moving story written and directed by Paul Greengrass, reuniting for the first time with his star from their 2013 Best Picture nominee Captain Phillips.

Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe.

In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna (Helena Zengel, System Crasher), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. Johanna, hostile to a world she’s never experienced, is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will.

Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home.

News of the World is directed by Greengrass (the Bourne films, United 93) from his screenplay with Luke Davies (Lion), based on the National Book Award finalist and best-selling novel by Paulette Jiles. The film is produced by Gary Goetzman (Mamma Mia! franchise, Greyhound), Gail Mutrux (The Danish Girl, Donnie Brasco) and Gregory Goodman (22 July, 8 Mile). The executive producers are Steven Shareshian and Tore Schmidt. The film’s music is by eight-time Academy Award® nominee James Newton Howard.



  1. I’d love to see this film. Tom Hanks is such a great actor and this movie looks really good. It would be wonderful to see this movie!

  2. I’ve loved since Tom Hanks since Forrest Gump and Toy Story! I was hoping to see this in movie theaters but I didn’t get to see it due to the virus, I hope i get the chance to win!

  3. Tom Hanks is a phenomenal actor and we look forward to seeing all his movies. He puts his heart and would into each character he portrays!

  4. One human taking care of another without an idea how to do it. It is one of our responsibilities as humans to do just that or die trying.

  5. This looks like it will be the best film of 2021!!! Love the actors and the storyline. It would be my pleasure to view this film. Thanks
