‘Larry Crowne’ Trailer #2 Adds George Takei

The second trailer for Tom Hanks Larry Crowne isn’t much different than the first, but it does add one important element: George Takei. In his first feature directorial effort since That Thing You Do!, Hanks teams with Julia Roberts in what looks to be a paper thin, but fun comedy. Also staring Bryan Cranston, Cedric the Entertainer, Taraji P. Henson, and Rami Malek (who just got cast in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s next film), one can see the trailer below via Universal Pics’ Twitter.


Oscar® winners Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts reunite for a dramatic comedy about how the hard knocks from today’s recession inspire one everyday guy to undergo a personal reinvention: Larry Crowne.

Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne (Hanks) was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he’s worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves…often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband.

The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.

Larry Crowne hits theaters July 1st, 2011.

What do you think of the second trailer? Are you looking forward to seeing Tom Hanks’ direction?
