Welcome to Marwen Movie Trailer

Robert Zemeckis directs Steve Carell in the story of Mark Hogancamp, subject of Jeff Malmberg's 2010 documentary Marwencol. Hogancamp was brutally attacked outside of a bar by five men who nearly killed him. He was in a coma for nine days and spent 43 days in the hospital. With little memory of his life before the attack, Hogancamp was unable to afford therapy and looked for a way to deal with the lingering effects of the trauma. He constructed a 1:6 scale WWII-era Belgian town in his yard and populated it with dolls that represented himself, his friends, and his attackers. Hogancamp named the town Marwencol. The Welcome to Marwen trailer finds Hogancamp (Steve Carell) turning to the characters in his town to help give him the strength to confront his attackers.
