Actor Tom Hanks is presenting yet another Oscar-winning acting bit to new cinematic frontiers in the new trailer for Paul Greengrass’ awards-hopeful western News of the World.

The new footage from the anticipated epic was shared on Thursday, previewing Tom Hanks’ turn as Civil War veteran Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, who travels the nation spreading non-fiction tales of presidents, queens, international feuds, world disasters, and more to townsfolk across America.

Kidd’s world intertwines with that of a 10-year-old girl, Johanna (Helena Zengel), previously taken in by the Kiowa people and raised as one of their own before an accident leaves her square in Kidd’s path. Against Johanna’s will, the captain takes her with him on a journey to reunite her with her biological aunt and uncle. A trek poses significant dangers both environmental and human.

“She needs to laugh and dream,” Kidd says in the clip when a peer questions his motives in transporting Johanna. “She needs new memories.”

In addition to directing News of the World, Flight 93 helmer Greengrass also co-wrote the film’s script. The film is adapted from Paulette Jiles’ novel with Lion’s Luke Davies, while eight-time Academy Award-nominated composer James Newton Howard scored the film.

Last year’s awards season as Fred Rogers in Marielle Heller’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Tom Hanks is again expected to be an acting contender in the Oscar race ahead.

Universal will distribute News of the World on December 25. Watch the trailer above.
