Apple has announced a release date for the second of two Tom Hanks movies it purchased during the pandemic. “Finch”, a futuristic story about an inventor and his canine and robotic friends, arrives on Apple TV + on November 5th.
Like Hanks’ war film, “Greyhound,” the film became a victim of the pandemic, surrounded by delays in its release, until Apple bought it from Universal. The robot is played by Caleb Landry Jones, recent winner at Cannes as best actor.
Hanks plays the main character, a sick robotics engineer who emerges from his underground self-exile to travel to an American wilderness. Throughout his journey, next to him are his dog, Goodyear, and an android named Jeff. Together they form a dysfunctional family, but can they learn to understand each other? I think we’ll have to wait until November to find out.
The SF film is directed by Emmy Award winner “Game of Thrones”, Miguel Sapochnik, with “Alien” writer Ivor Powell, and newcomer Craig Luck as screenwriter. Director Robert Zemeckis is also the executive producer of the film.
Tom Hanks, “completely demolished” because his film does not reach the cinema, but on Apple TV +
In the context of the pandemic, the newest blockbuster starring Tom Hanks has not hit theaters. Instead, it was distributed through the Apple TV + streaming service.
In a recent interview, the actor expressed his disappointment, saying that “he has an absolutely broken heart” due to the fact that the film “Greyhound” will not premiere in cinemas.
Although he tried not to attack Apple TV + or streaming services in general, Hanks is convinced that this was not the best experience for his film.
“I don’t want to upset my Apple bosses, but there’s a difference between picture and sound quality,” Hanks insisted in an interview with The Guardian.
