SAVING MR. BANKS Trailer: See Tom Hanks’ Swell Walt Disney Impression

The surprising prequel to SAVING PRIVATE RYAN

This looks like it's probably going to be one of this year's big family films. It is about a movie that many people love. It includes a massively charming and fun looking Tom Hanks. And it involves historical figures in a largely unknown true story.

As for me, I grew tired of it halfway through. While I love Emma Thompson, her stern caricature is all out of tricks by the 30 second mark. And that's before the trailer takes a nosedive into pop-psychologyville.

On the other hand, this does appear to have a stellar support cast. And Hanks looks good in a mustache. And it will probably make a nice double feature with Finding Neverland. And… that's it. I'm out.
