Tom Hanks: I’ve Made Four Good Movies in Decades

Tom Hanks has been in Hollywood for almost 30 years, and he has made four movies that he thinks are “pretty good.”

The actor, who has been in movies like “Forrest Gump” and “Elvis” and won an Academy Award, said that his next book, “The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece,” will come out on May 9, 2023. The book tells a made-up story about the making of a superhero movie that made a lot of money and the comic book that inspired it.

Hanks told People, “No one knows how a movie is made, even though everyone thinks they do.” I’ve made a lot of movies, and I think four of them are pretty good. I’m still amazed at how movies are made. The whole process, from the first flash of an idea to the flashing image on the screen, is a miracle. “

Hanks added, “Making a movie is a lot of hard work over a long period of time, with many happy moments and just as many times when you hate yourself. It is the most important job in the world and the hardest job I know. “

Hanks has said before that the idea of a “Forrest Gump” sequel was shot down almost as soon as the first movie did well. The first movie is probably one of his top four “pretty good” movies.

“Since a long time had passed, we did try to talk about another ‘Forrest Gump,'” Hanks said. “We talked about it for 40 minutes.” “Then we never said, ‘Guys, come on,'” he said.

In the age of multiple sequels, reboots, and requels, Hanks said there is no “obligation” for him to play Forrest again after the 1994 original movie, for which he paid out of pocket for some scenes like Forrest’s famous run across America.

Hanks said, “One smart thing I did was to never sign a contract that said I had to do a sequel.” ” I’ve always said, “Guys, if there’s a good reason to do it, let’s do it. But you can’t make me do it.’ There is a pure business instinct that says, “Hey, you just had a hit, so do it again and you’ll have another hit.
