The first official image was just released yesterday, but director John Lee Hancock has no qualms in pushing promotion for his latest pic, Saving Mr Banks. We mentioned yesterday that we were 99.9% sure there will be a trailer released in the coming weeks… however, we didn’t count on it being the next day! But we aren’t complaining. Check out the latest trailer for Saving Mr Banks, starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson below!
Saving Mr Bank follows Tom Hanks as Walt Disney, as he tries to secure the rights for P.L Travers magical tale Mary Poppins. It turns out that Ms Travers (Emma Thompson) is not too keen on giving her eloquent narrative to Mickey Mouse, forcing Disney to try all kinds of moves to woo her. Even taking her to the “happiest place on Earth” for free!
With a light and airy tone and beautiful acting from Hanks and Thompson, Saving Mr Banks has a lot of potential. After all Hancock helped Sandra Bullock win an Oscar with The Blind Side! Unfortunately, here in the UK we will have to wait until January 17, 2014 before we get to experience this magical masterpiece. Until then, we are positive more information will be released soon.
