Tom Hanks

  1. Tom Hanks’ App Wants to Turn Your iPad Into a Typewriter, and It’s Dominating the App Store

    Yes. That Tom Hanks.

    Hanx Writer is an app that turns your iPad into a typewriter, or at least it gives you the feel of using one. The app is free, but offers in-app purchases to unlock different typewriter skins. Are there really that many iPad users with fond memories of old typewriters? Apparently so. Hanx Writer is sitting at the top of the App Store after its first week.

  2. Thor, Gale, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks Star In the Epic, The Groundbreaking… Bitman Begins

    the internet is serious business

    Jimmy Kimmel, as is his wont, took to his late night show to have some post-Oscar fun. This year he enlisted the help of celebrities to dramatize that most enduring, most highbrow of subjects: The Internet meme. There’s David After Dentist (starring Joseph Gordon Levitt), Ain’t nobody got time for that (with Queen Latifah), and …I don’t want to ruin it, but Gary Oldman is there. But Bitman Begins is our favorite, because superheroes. Hit the jump for a behind-the-scenes video in which Meryl Streep talks working with the Hemsworth brothers. Update: YouTube appears to be giving some people trouble. Sorry if you're affected. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.

  4. The You’ve Got Mail Website From 1998 Is Still Up And Wow The Internet Was Terrible Then

    That movie is still flawless though, don't try to argue.

    It's easy to forget, in our world of smartphones and YouTube and Twitter, that the internet has not always been so ubiquitous. Just 15 years ago, back in December of 1998 (when Google was only two months old) Warner Brothers released the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan classic You've Got Mail - and a website to go with it. And it's still there.

  5. Tom Hanks Gives Us His Best Walt Disney In The Saving Mr. Banks Trailer

    It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

    Just the other day we saw our first official image of Tom Hanks and the always wonderful Emma Thompson from Saving Mr. Banks. The film will tell the story of P.L. Travers (Thompson), creator of Mary Poppins, and Walt Disney's long road to capturing her works. I have to admit, the trailer tugged at my heartstrings a bit.

  7. HBO Has Chosen Their Follow-Up to Band of Brothers and The Pacific, And It Is…

    Good News Everyone!

    Masters of the Air: America's Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany. Or at least that's the name of the book (or one of the books) upon which HBO's third World War II miniseries will be based. The network has confirmed that the series is a go, and producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks have acquired the rights to Donald L. Miller's book, which follows WWII's Eighth Air Force, also called the Mighty Eighth.

  8. The Evolution of Famous Actors (Plus Batman and Biff Tannen)

    Our Adorable Past

    Artist Jeff Victor has made my geeky, cinephiliac, infograph-loving heart happy with his series depicting the evolution of famous actors, among them Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, and Tom Hanks. And because every fanart series needs a little Batman (it's a universal truth, just go with it), he's included the Caped Crusader as well. Check 'em out after the jump.

  10. Why Is Tom Hanks Doing Slam Poetry About Full House? Who Cares, It’s Amazing!

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    In one of the most random and bizarre instances of celebrity appearances this year, the always lovely Tom Hanks went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform slam poetry. But what would he slam about? Politics? His recent curse-slip on morning television? Promote his new film, Cloud Atlas? No, the 1980s/90s ABC family sitcom, Full House. Because, well, obviously.
