Even before we know which actors will make it into the five allotted 2014 Oscar Best Actor slots, I can make one guarantee: There will be three or four extremely talented performers on the outside looking in. Anytime someone of Michael B. Jordan’s caliber can’t make a short list of Best Actor nominations for his heart-wrenching portrayal in ‘Fruitvale Station,’ you know it must be a crowded field.
Released in 1988 and starring future megastar Tom Hanks, 'Big' told the story of a boy who makes a wish to be big at a magic fortune-teller machine. When he wakes up the next morning, he finds that he has become an adult literally overnight, and that being big isn't all it's cracked up to be. 25 years later, we revisit the cast of this treasured classic and see what they're up to now.
Though Dan Brown's reign as the king of airplane reading may be over, his Robert Langdon books produced two very successful movies. So it's no surprise that Brown's 'Inferno' is being adapted for the big screen, with Tom Hanks returning as Langdon, and with Ron Howard directing, and has been set for a December 2015 release.
The 'Saving Mr. Banks' trailer has arrived via our friends at Moviefone, giving us the first footage of what promises to be one of the most talked about movies this awards season. We'd expect nothing less from a movie about the making of 'Mary Poppins,' with the great Tom Hanks playing Walt Disney and the equally great Emma Thompson playing P.L. Travers.
Oscar campaigns are not won with a single photograph.

It's been a few years since we last saw a film from Paul Greengrass, but the new 'Captain Phillips' trailer shows that the director of 'The Bourne Ultimatum' hasn't lost his style at all. In fact, the movie looks terrific. That's what you get when you put Greengrass at the helm of a terrifying/exciting true story and cast Tom Hanks in the lead role.
Last night, Justin Timberlake hosted 'Saturday Night Live' for the fifth time, forever cementing him as one of the immortal show's greatest and most enduring guest hosts. Rather than give us a traditional opening monologue, Timberlake welcomed everyone to the show and immediately whisked us away to the Fiver Timers Club, where all of the great SNL hosts get to hang out...and where Dan Aykroyd is the bartender.
Any TV fan knows that all good things cinematic come in threes, so why would HBO's collaboration with legendary director Steven Spielberg and Hollywood icon Tom Hanks be any different?
