Tom Hanks plays multiple roles, including that of the conductor, in the film version of 'The Polar Express.'
Director Robert Zemeckis employs a new computer technique to bring the award-winning children's book The Polar Express to the screen.
The holiday film is based on an award-winning children's book by Chris Van Allsburg.
The driving forces behind the film are Zemeckis, who made such hits as Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabit and Forrest Gump, and his frequent collaborator, actor Tom Hanks.
The tale is timeless, following a child who's losing faith in the magic of Christmas until one fateful Christmas Eve, when he's offered the ride of his life.
