The world premiere of WWII film Greyhound is coming this Friday, July 10, exclusively on Apple TV+. The movie stars Tom Hanks, who also was a screenwriter for the film. A new ‘inside look’ was released today, detailing the Battle of the Atlantic, which the movie is based on.
Inspired by real events, Captain Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) leads an international convoy of 37 ships on a treacherous mission across The Atlantic to deliver thousands of soldiers and much-needed supplies to Allied forces. Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan, and Elisabeth Shue star alongside Hanks. The Apple Original film was directed by Aaron Schneider and produced by Gary Goetzman.
The three and a half minute clip details the Battle of Atlantic, as told by Hanks. The star said earlier this week he was disappointed Greyhound wasn’t released first in theaters, due to COVID-19, calling the situation an “absolute heartbreak”.
“I don’t mean to make angry my Apple overlords, but there is a difference in picture and sound quality,” Hanks told The Guardian.
The film from Sony was originally planned for a theatrical release, but of course with the coronavirus pandemic, that changed things. Apple bid on the film and beat out competitors, rumoured to cost $70 million USD for exclusive streaming rights to the expected summer blockbuster.
