With Oscar season officially over (we should all breath a sigh of relief), it’s time to shine a light on one of the most talked about films of the year ahead of us, LARRY CROWNE.

Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live (hat tip to Cinematical for digging this puppy up), we have the first clip from the hotly anticipated film, and I must say, seeing star Tom Hanks doing a bit of comedy is just what the cinematic doctor ordered.

The film stars Hanks and Julia Roberts, and follows a man who must go back to school after losing his job, and ultimately sparks a relationship with his teacher, played by Roberts. The film also features a massive supporting cast, including Peter Scolari, Bryan Cranston, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wilmer Valderrama, Jon Seda, Cedric the Entertainer, Taraji P. Henson, Rami Malek, Malcolm Barrett, Maria Canals Barrera, George Takei, Holmes Osborne, Pam Grier, Grace Gummer, Rita Wilson, Dale Dye, and Bob Stephenson. Check out the first clip after the break!

It may not hit until July 1, but if this is any inclination as to what we should all be expecting, we are in for something truly special. I really like this clip a lot, and it will be interesting to see Hanks back in the director’s chair, the first time in a decade since directing an episode of Band Of Brothers. There is a really interesting sense of style here that has me thinking this could be a real winner.
