Back in 2003 I went to see the movie Shaolin Soccer with my husband. During the trailersthere was a movie that seemed like it would be good to watch. The story:
Set sometime in the 1950’s, two U.S government officials were tasked to go to this small impoverish town somewhere south or more desert like area of the US, to get residents to move so the government could build on that site. But the longer they were there, strange and unexplainable things happened. A one room small house was much bigger inside, holding elephants and such. The people also were seen with paranormal abilities, like floating objects. The movie gave off a “Big Fish” starring Ewan McGregor feel to it. Kind of like a dreamswork or PG-PG-13 family movie. Now my husband and I could have sworn it starred Tom Hanks and Ed Harris as the two government agents. But searching them both on IMDB has led to no such movies. I’ve searched for this movie off and on for nearly twenty years. I’ve even thought it could be a mini t.v. Series or something. Could this movie have even been made? Was it only a trailer with no actual movie? I’m stumped here. With this amount of detail I would have imagined I would have found it by now. I’ve got nothing.
Qoute from this IMDb review page of the movie:
“A dreamy, stunningly atmospheric film takes place in a small town of Northfork, Montana in 1955. The government officials arrive to evacuate the town about to be inundated by a new hydroelctrical dam.”

It almost sounds like you’re describing the TV show Supernatural (2005–2020). https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0460681/?ref_=adv_li_tt
I’m putting this one anyways, but I don’t think this is it, lol: Triple Summits (2001) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0458182/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 (but the plot at the beginning is very to what you’re describing).
