With The World Changing, Tom Hanks Thinks ‘News’ May Be His Last Movie In Theaters

Tom Hanks as Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd in News of the World, co-written and directed by Paul Greengrass.

Movie studios have made big news in the last few weeks by announcing that the traditional model for movie releases — that is, exclusive runs in theaters first — will be upended in 2021 due to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. What will happen after 2021? Will we ever return to our old movie-watching habits? Nobody knows for sure. Tom Hanks has always been a believer in the shared, communal experience of watching films in theaters, and he’s glad that his new movie, News of the World, is getting a theatrical run, because he’s not sure how much longer theaters may be around.

News of the World is now playing in theaters.
