DEADLINE: ‘A Man Called Otto’ Trailer: Tom Hanks Wants (Almost) Everyone To Get Off His Lawn

Sony’s Columbia Pictures has released the trailer for A Man Called Otto, its adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling Swedish novel A Man Called Ove and the subsequent movie of the same name that picked up a pair of Oscar nominations in 2017.

The new version, directed by Marc Forster, stars Tom Hanks as the grumpiest of old(er) men and hits theaters in Los Angeles and New York on Christmas Day before going wide January 13 over MLK weekend.

Hanks’ Otto Anderson is a widower living alone who is set in his ways to say the least, annoyed with everyone from delivery drivers to neighborhood joggers and even clowns. But a young family moves in next door, and Otto meets his match in quick-witted and pregnant Marisol (Mariana Treviño), leading to an unlikely friendship that will turn his world upside down.
