Universal has released the first trailer for the romantic comedy Larry Crowne. Directed by, written, and starring Tom Hanks the film also stars Julia Roberts with the story centering on a man who loses his job and decides to go back to college. Larry Crowne is slated to release on July 1st.

Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne (Hanks) was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he’s worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves…often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband.
