Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Robert Zemeckis’ “Welcome to Marwen,” a narrative feature remake of Jeff Malmberg’s celebrated documentary “Marwencol”.
Steve Carell plays a man who loses most of his memory after being beaten nearly to death. Unable to afford therapy, he begins building a 1/6-scale World War II-era Belgian town in his yard, populating it with dolls that represent himself, his friends, and even his attackers.
Leslie Mann, Merritt Wever, Eiza González, Gwendolyn Christie, Janelle Monae, Leslie Zemeckis, Diane Kruger, and Neil Jackson co-star in the film which Zemeckis co-wrote with Caroline Thompson.
“Welcome to Marwen” opens in cinemas on November 21st.
