Steve Carell finds comfort in building his own miniature world of army figurines in the first official trailer for "Welcome to Marwen."

From Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Flight, Cast Away), the fantasy-tinged drama is based on the true story of Mark Hogancamp (played here by Steve Carell), an artist and photographer who was left with disabling brain damage after being brutally attacked outside of a bar by five neo-Nazis scumbags.

Now unable to remember most of his previous life, Mark discovers a therapeutic passion for making and painting miniature WWII-style figurines. And by creating a whole miniature town filled with large-scale scenes of heroism and bravery, Mark is able to escape the challenges and pressures of the real world and immerse himself in a land of make-believe.

Inspired by the award-winning 2010 documentary "Marwencol" by filmmaker Jeff Malmberg, the film also stars Leslie Mann, Merritt Wever, Janelle Monae, Gwendoline Christie, Diane Kruger, and Eiza Gonzalez.

Written by Zemeckis from a story co-written by Zemeckis and Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride), "Welcome to Marwen" will be hitting theaters this Holiday Season.

synopsis:
This holiday season, 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. When a devastating attack shatters Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell) and wipes away all memories, no one expected recovery. Putting together pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic. As he builds an astonishing art installation -- a testament to the most powerful women he knows -- through his fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one.

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.
