A new trailer and poster has just been released for Tom Hanks latest movie A Hologram for the King, which opens in cinemas on 20th May.
Based on the best-selling novel by Dave Eggers, A Hologram for the King follows businessman Alan Clay (Tom Hanks) on a journey halfway around the world, far from his American roots, to a rising Saudi Arabian city.
Clay is dispatched to pitch a new IT contract to a wealthy King, a project that must be a success for him to stave off bankruptcy, pay his daughter’s college fees, and finally accomplish something big.
Tom Tykwer’s comedy-drama is a portrait of the transcendent power of love, recounting the journey of a man in a country that requires him to rise to completely unknown challenges – and that answers old questions in new and unexpected ways.
Hanks and Tykwer, who previously worked together on Cloud Atlas, reunite for A Hologram for the King, which also stars Sarita Choudhury (Homeland), Sidse Babett Knudsen (Borgen), Ben Whishaw (Spectre), Tracey Fairaway (Enough Said), David Menkin (Zero Dark Thirty) and Tom Skerritt (Top Gun).
