The ‘Welcome to Marwen’ trailer teases the imaginative true story
Universal Pictures has just released the trailer for “Welcome to Marwen,” an imaginative true story from Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis (“Back to the Future,” “Forrest Gump,” “Cast Away”). Steve Carell headlines the story of a broken man discovering how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit.

When a devastating attack shatters Mark Hogancamp (Carell) and wipes away all his memories, no one expected him to recover. Putting together pieces from his old and new lives, 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.
“Welcome to Marwen” is produced by Oscar-winning producer Steve Starkey (“Forrest Gump,” “Flight”), Jack Rapke (“Cast Away,” “Flight”) and Cherylanne Martin (“The Pacific,” “Flight”) of Zemeckis’ Universal-based ImageMovers. The film is executive produced by Jackie Levine, as well as Jeff Malmberg, who directed the 2010 documentary that inspired the film.
