Run Away With Carly Rae Jepsen, Be 18 Again With Alice Cooper And Hold Out Hope For That My Chemical Romance Reunion With Frank Iero. Plus More!
If you haven’t seen the trailer for the new Mister Rogers movie starring Tom Hanks, where have you been?
It’s about time a film about one of the most influential American personalities releases that’s not a documentary, but also not quite a biopic.
“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” is based on a Tom Junrod’s 1988 Esquire article about the affects Mister Rogers’ kindness had on millions of people. The trailer shows snippets of Hanks as Rogers while on set of the popular TV children program “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” walking down the steps of his home, taking his shoe off and tossing it to his other hand like he did in every episode.
Queue the nostalgia.
