Universal Pictures has revealed the first trailer and poster for the upcoming fantasy drama Welcome to Marwen.

When a devastating attack shatters Mark Hogancamp (Carell) and wipes away all memories, no one expected recovery. Putting together pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic.
