Tom Hanks features in the first image from western drama News of the World.
The film is directed by Paul Greengrass, who Hanks collaborated with on 2013's Captain Phillips, while it's based on author Paulette Jiles' novel of the same name.
Set in the aftermath of the Civil War, it centres on the unlikely friendship between Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (the Texan newscaster portrayed by Hanks) and 10-year-old Johanna Leonberger (Helena Zengel) when he's tasked with returning her to her family.
Greengrass co-wrote the screenplay alongside Lion's Luke Davies, while Hanks and Gary Goetzman are producing through their Playtone banner.
Cinematographer Dariusz Wolski is the man charged with making News of the World as visually stunning as possible – his previous credits include The Martian and Pirates of the Caribbean.
The Sixth Sense and The Hunger Games' James Newton Howard will provide the music.
We wrote: "Greyhound isn't bad exactly, it just isn't very moving. It takes something special to make a straightforward movie about World War II that resonates with you long after the credits roll (did we mention Dunkirk?), and unfortunately this isn't one of them."
News of the World is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on Christmas Day 2020 in the US, and New Year's Day 2021 in the UK.
