Unlike any film seen before, Welcome to Marwen is based on the miraculous true story of Mark Hogancamp (Carell), an illustrator who, after a violent attack that shatters his body and his memories, heals himself through the power of his artistic imagination.

Putting together the pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a mythical Belgian town, Marwen, where he can be Captain Hogie, a World War II fighter pilot. In Marwen, Mark can be a hero, fight his enemies, and rely on his friends. As he builds and then photographs an astonishing art installation peopled with breathtakingly life-like dolls and action-figures, he draws strength from his fantasy world to triumph in the real world.

WELCOME TO MARWEN arrives in theaters nationwide on December 21, 2018. 
The Welcome to Marwen AR App is available for Apple and Android devices.
