Tom Hanks returns to the director's chair and the big screen this July 1st with LARRY CROWNE, the actor/director's first effort since his 1996 directorial debut, THAT THING YOU DO!

Universal has released first true poster for the film and it's just as heart-warming as the trailer. Maybe I feel that way because I have always carried with me the completely heterosexual and innocent dream of riding on the back of a scooter with Mr. Hanks, as my hair and my scarf blows frivolously in the breeze. One day...one day. Check out the poster and the official synopsis for the film after the jump.

"Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne (Hanks) was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he’s worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves…often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband. The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live."
