Hanks To Tout Documentary

Tom Hanks will help promote the much-lauded documentary “Return With Honor,” which premieres next month in New York and Los Angeles, Variety reports. The film focuses on the experience of American POWs during the Vietnam conflict. It boasts rare combat and capture footage obtained from the Vietnamese and follows the story of numerous pilots incarcerated for as long as 8 1/2 years. “This film turns those (Vietnam war) experiences into powerful, moving and shocking recollections, told to us in the first person and for the first time by friends, relatives, brothers and husbands,” Hanks said.

  • In other Hanks family news, Tom’s 19-year-old son, Colin, has landed his first big TV job — he’ll costar on a WB series set to premiere in the fall. The show, “Roswell,” is about the adventures of a group of teen aliens who settled in the New Mexico town after their spacecraft crash-landed there in 1947. Colin is Hanks’ son from his first marriage.
