The Post Is Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, & Meryl Streep’s Anti-Trumpism Oscar Bait Love Letter to the Free Press
This is a film about an administration feeding lies to the American public and attempting to censor the journalists reporting on those lies. Hmm, sound familiar?Read More
The Reunion You Didn’t Know You Wanted: That Thing You Do‘s The Wonders Reunite, and It Feels So Good
If you were at the Goddamn Comedy Jam at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles last night, you got a really special treat! The reunion you didn't know you wanted (but realized you desperately did) happened, and it was glorious. The Wonders were back, and you can check out the performance after the jump!Read More

Tom Hanks and Emma Watson are teaming up for a dramatic thriller about privacy and technology, but something looks ... oddly familiar?Read More
While last week’s episode of Saturday Night Live premiered to positive reviews, one sketch that caught on (to the surprise of many) was “Haunted Elevator”, in which Tom Hanks played the bizarre yet impeccably dressed David S. Pumpkins–complete with backup b-boy skeletons. It was a relatively simple bit at its core, but somehow the combination […]Read More
The dad who created the "Glowy Zoey" costume has created "Princess Cumulus," a thundercloud costume for his daughter.Read More
Because sometimes you just need to know dad's there for you, slugger.
After Emily Blunt's puppy handout last week, I think it's safe to say that SNL is single-handedly trying to cheer up the country in the middle of this stressful election season.Read More
Have you ever wanted to step into the shoes of Robert Langdon and unwrap mind-blowing (or ridiculous, depending on your perspective) conspiracies? Well, the folks at Sony are here to help you with that. Ahead of the release of Inferno, starring Tom Hanks, sleuths in the making can take part in a “three-week race against time” via a series of interactive puzzles.Read More
It's the crossover we didn't even comprehend until now.
While Hanks' Pixar connection to Ellen DeGeneres wasn't necessarily at the forefront of everyone's minds when Hanks came on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss his latest film Sully, the two eventually sat down to wax nostalgic about the recording process over at Pixar--and then proceeded to have a conversation, in character, as their respective Pixar roles Woody and Dory.Read More
Why are you still so far away, 2018?!
In an interview on The Graham Norton Show, Tom Hanks confirmed that he's already recording his voiceover as Woody in Toy Story 4 and his next session is on December 2nd--which is right around the corner, people!Read More
3 out of 5 stars.
The overwhelming sense the Cold War had of this being a time of the great unknown fills stories with intimate drama, and some of the true stories that came out around these events, when we seemed to be on the verge all-out nuclear war, are truly fascinating. Francis Gary Powers' story is a somewhat known part of history, but Bridge of Spies focuses on “the real hero” of the negotiation to get him out of Russia after his airplane was shot down: attorney James Donovan.Read More
On The Tonight Show, Tom Hanks joined the ranks of other actors such as Channing Tatum and Michael Douglas when he participated in a little creative retelling of his latest film, Bridge of Spies—as written by elementary school kids, of course.Read More
Yes. That Tom Hanks.

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.Read More
Things We Saw Today
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.Read More
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. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More
