‘Here’ Trailer: Tom Hanks & Robin Wright Live a Lifetime in Robert Zemeckis Drama Filmed from Just One Angle


The trailer has arrived for the ambitious new drama Here, reuniting Forrest Gump‘s director, Robert Zemeckis, writer, Eric Roth, and stars, Tom Hanks and Robin Wright. Take a look above.

Described as “an original film about multiple families and a special place they inhabit,” Here tells a story that travels through generations and aims to capture the most relatable of human experiences. The film achieves this through a unique narrative approach: the camera remains in just one location and angle throughout the entire film. The aim is to provide an intimate and immersive experience, as we witness the passage of time and the evolving stories of these characters in a single, unchanging setting.

As the trailer shows, filmmaker Robert Zemeckis is employing an array of digital effects to bring this story to life, including cutting-edge de-ageing tech to present younger versions of Tom Hanks and Robin Wright.

Zemeckis, whose many standout credits also include Castaway, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Contact, and Back to the Future, directs Here from a screenplay he co-wrote with Oscar-winning screenwriter Eric Roth. Roth’s impressive writing credits include Killers of the Flower Moon, Dune, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Ali, and A Star is Born. The film is an adaptation of the acclaimed graphic novel by Richard McGuire, which also tells its story through a one-location approach.

Here, also starring Paul Bettany, Kelly Reilly, and Michelle Dockery, is set to open in US cinemas on November 15th.
