Tom Hanks transforms into a travelling storyteller in post-Civil War America in the trailer for News Of The World.

The Hollywood star, 64, debuts as Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, a widower and veteran of three wars.

While in Texas he comes across Johanna, played by Helena Zengel, a 10-year-old taken in by the Native American Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own.

Johanna, hostile to a world she’s never experienced, is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will, and Kidd agrees to chaperone her on this journey.

While things start off tense between them and Captain Jefferson is clueless as to how to care for a child, they soon build up a sweet paternal bond.

Is anyone else leaking from their eyes right now?

The Terminal, Forrest Gump, Castaway and now this… Tom’s only gone and pulled off another emotional tearjerker, the sly devil.

News Of The World reunites Hanks with writer and director Paul Greengrass after the pair worked together on the Oscar-nominated 2013 film Captain Phillips.

The screenplay was co-written with Lion’s Luke Davies and based on the best-selling novel by Paulette Jiles.

Tom and his wife Rita Wilson were among the first celebrities to contract coronavirus in March while they were in Australia.

He stars opposite Johanna, played by Helena Zengel

He told NBC’s Today programme he felt ‘rotten’ while he had the virus and he has spoken out in favour of people wearing masks and adhering to social distancing rules.

He explained: ‘There’s really only three things we can do in order to get to tomorrow: Wear a mask, social distance, wash our hands.

‘Those things are so simple, so easy, if anybody cannot find it in themselves to practice those three very basic things – I just think shame on you.

‘Don’t be a p****, get on with it, do your part. It’s very basic. If you’re driving a car, you don’t go too fast, you use your turn signal and you avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it’s common sense.’
