Check out a brand-new trailer for "Welcome to Marwen," the new fantasy-tinged drama from Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future) and starring Oscar-nominated actor Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) as a brain-damaged man struggling to regain his sense of self after surviving a vicious gang attack.

The film, which features a strong female supporting cast that includes the likes of Leslie Mann (Blockers), Merritt Wever (Godless, Nurse Jackie), Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures), Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), and Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), is based on the true story of Mark Hogancamp, a photographer and model builder who lost all his past memories after being brutally attacked by a group of neo-Nazi thugs. While recovering from his injuries, Mark found a therapeutic passion for building and painting miniature WWII-style figurines, which led to constructing an entire miniature town filled with toy soldiers.

Written by Zemeckis from a story co-written by him and Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride), "Welcome to Marwen" is also inspired by the award-winning 2010 documentary "Marwencol" by filmmaker Jeff Malmberg, which chronicled Mark Hogancamp's harrowing story and how it led to his photo exhibitions in New York.

"Welcome to Marwen" is now slated to hit theaters on December 21st.

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.
