Final Trailer Showcases Tom Hank’s Neighbourly Curmudgeonliness in ‘A MAN CALLED OTTO’

Sony Pictures has today dropped a brand new trailer in anticipation of the impending release of Marc Forster‘s (The Kite Runner, Finding Neverland) A Man Called Otto, an English-language adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s # 1 New York Times bestselling pitch-black, feelgood comedy novel “A Man Called Ove.”

Directed by Forster, from a script written by Academy Award® nominee David Magee (Best Adapted Screenplay, Life of Pi, 2012; Best Adapted Screenplay, Finding Neverland, 2004), A Man Called Otto stars Tom Hanks (Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Cast Away), Mariana Treviño (Club the Cuervos), Rachel Keller (Fargo) and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (The Magnificent Seven).

A thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others, the film tells the story of Otto Anderson (Hanks), a cantankerous widower who is very set in his ways but, behind his cranky exterior lies a story and a sadness. When a lively young family moves in next door, he meets his match in quick-witted and heavily pregnant Marisol, leading to an unlikely friendship that will turn his world upside-down.

A Man Called Otto is also based on the 2015 Swedish film En man som heter Ove written and directed by Hannes Holm.

The film is being produced by Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Fredrik Wikström Nicastro.

The film releases only at cinemas on January 6, 2023 and we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer that reveals how some families come from the most unexpected places.
