Apple TV+ will exclusively premiere the film ‘Greyhound’ on July 10, a motion picture based on a World War II battle, with the movie written by and starring Tom Hanks. A trailer released today announced the streaming date on Apple TV+ for the upcoming movie, based on the novel The Good Shepherd by C.S. Forester.
The only thing more dangerous than the front lines was the fight to get there. Starring and written by Tom Hanks, Greyhound premieres July 10 on the Apple TV app.
As for the synopsis of Greyhound:
In a thrilling story inspired by actual events from the Battle of the Atlantic, Tom Hanks stars as a first-time captain who leads a convoy of allied ships carrying thousands of soldiers across the treacherous waters of the “Black Pit” to the front lines of WW2. With no air cover protection for 5 days, the captain and his convoy must battle the surrounding enemy Nazi U-boats in order to give the allies a chance to win the war. The film is directed by Aaron Schneider from a screenplay by Hanks.
Sony Pictures Entertainment shared the same trailer back in early March, with the film previously slated for theatres for the June 19 Father’s Day weekend. But with COVID-19 pandemic putting a wrinkle into the movie industry, the film will now premiere on Apple TV+ on July 10.
Deadline reported back in May the film was acquired by Apple for about $70 million USD, beating out other streaming companies in a bidding war. This looks like one movie to note on the calendar to watch this summer.
