Sony Pictures released the trailer for their upcoming film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood starring Tom Hanks, giving viewers a glimpse into the life of TV icon and minister Fred Rogers.
The film is based on an article written by journalist Tom Junod, who formed a friendship with Rogers following a journalistic profile the reporter did on the TV pioneer. The movie will tell of their encounter and the friendship that followed.
The trailer kicks off with Hanks singing the iconic Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood theme song. The nostalgic sound and visual will immediately transport viewers back to the first time they heard and saw the beloved childhood role model.
In the clip, Junod (played by Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is heard telling Rogers, “This piece will be for an issue about heroes. Do you consider yourself a hero?”
