For a movie starring one of the last real Movie Stars, A Hologram for the King sure did fly under the radar. Based on the Dave Eggers’ novel of the same name, Hologram reunites Tom Hanks and Cloud Atlas co-director Tom Tykwer in the kind of movie that would have been a sure thing twenty years ago but now you can’t pay people to see in theaters. Full Story
