Universal Pictures has unveiled the third, and likely final trailer, for ‘Welcome to Marwen,’ the true story of Mark Hogancamp.
From the looks of it, the film is shaping up to be a fascinating, yet inspirational tale about healing through artistic expression. For those that may have been confused by previous trailers, this is easily the most straight-forward of the bunch. It tells the story of Hogancamp, who survived a brutal, near-fatal attack, who creates a small city of toys which are modeled after his friends and enemies. Check out the trailer below.
Academy Award® winner Robert Zemeckis—the groundbreaking filmmaker behind Forrest Gump, Flight and Cast Away—directs Steve Carell in the most original movie of the year. Welcome to Marwen tells the miraculous true story of one broken man’s fight as he discovers how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit.
In a bold, wondrous and timely film from this revolutionary pioneer of contemporary cinema, Welcome to Marwen shows that when your only weapon is your imagination…you’ll find courage in the most unexpected place.
The epic drama is produced by Oscar®-winning producer Steve Starkey (Forrest Gump, Flight), Jack Rapke (Cast Away, Flight), and Cherylanne Martin (The Pacific, Flight) of Zemeckis’ Universal-based ImageMovers banner produce alongside the director. It is executive produced by Jackie Levine, as well as Jeff Malmberg, who directed the riveting 2010 documentary that inspired the film.
