How to watch: In theaters; trailer
Why to watch: Casting the most beloved actor alive to play the world's grumpiest man is a wise move. Only Tom Hanks can make anyone seem lovable. The two-time Academy Award winner plays the titular Otto, a down-in-the-dumps widower whose life finds new meaning when a young family moves in next door. If the title sounds vaguely familiar, it's because it's adapted from the Swedish book A Man Called Ove by Frederik Bachman, which itself was already adapted into a Swedish film. The American remake will hit limited theaters in NY and Los Angeles and expand nationwide on January 13, 2023.
