The first trailer for the upcoming Mister Rogers biopic is here. Tom Hanks stars as the beloved television star in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and, TBH, this movie looks super emotional. Here's everything you need to know about the film.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood isn't your traditional biopic. It doesn't follow Fred Rogers throughout his entire life. Instead it focuses on his relationship with a cynical journalist named Tom Junod whose outlook on life was profoundly changed after profiling the Mister Rogers' neighborhood star for Esquire. Matthew Rhys co-stars alongside Hanks as Junod.
This film comes two years after Won't You Be My Neighbor?, a documentary about Rogers, was released. The documentary was well received by critics and fans alike. If the initial reactions to Hanks' portrayal of Rogers is any indication, this biopic is set to do well at the box office when it hits theaters on Thanksgiving.
