He looks out of place...
X Filme has released the first still from the dramedy A Hologram for the King. The film stars Tom Hanks, Sarita Choudhury, Omar Elba, Tracey Fairaway, David Menkin and Tom Skerritt and is directed by Tom Twyker (Cloud Atlas). Check out the picture of Hanks in the desert below!
The story takes place far away from the recession-weary USA, as an up-and-coming Saudi Arabian city provides the backdrop for foundering American businessman Alan Clay's (Hanks) last-ditch effort to stave off bankruptcy, pay his daughter's college fees, and finally accomplish something big. A Hologram for the King is a gentle, crazy, wistful ballad recounting the journey of a man, who has lost almost everything, to a country that requires him to rise to completely unknown challenges – and that answers old questions in new and unexpected ways.
