Take a pinch of Tom Hanks, add a dash of Julia Roberts, stick in a scooter and a smile and you’ve got the perfect recipe for the Hanksman’s latest foray into the world of directing.

Larry Crowne had its world premiere in London this week and we were on hand to report from the event, and you’ll be able to read our review of the film on the site shortly. Until then let us offer you this new trailer which is an attractive look at the on-screen collision of two mega-stars.

George Takei would like the offer you a synopsis,

When appealing everyman LARRY CROWNE (Tom Hanks) is inexplicably fired from his job as a big box store clerk, he realizes it’s time for some meaningful change in his life. Deeply in debt and without direction, he returns to college where he befriends a group of scooter-riding students and eventually develops a real affection for his beautiful speech class instructor, MERCEDES TAINOT (Julia Roberts). Charming and smart, LARRY CROWNE reminds us of life’s small surprises. Sometimes clouds really do have a silver lining. It’s also about the power of new beginnings like the time Larry Crowne, an ordinary man with a gentle heart, was forced to downsize his world…and ended up expanding his life.

Thanks George.

Trailer Ahoy!
