Apple Shares Inside Look at Upcoming WWII Movie 'Greyhound' With Tom Hanks

Apple today shared an "inside look" trailer for upcoming Apple TV+ movie "Greyhound" starring Tom Hanks. The trailer, narrated by Tom Hanks, explains some of the background of the Battle of the Atlantic that the movie explores.


"Greyhound" features Tom Hanks as George Krause, a career naval officer given command of Navy destroyer Greyhound during the Battle of the Atlantic. Krause fights his own self doubts and personal demons as he leads a convoy of Allied ships against German U-boats to prove that he belongs in command.

The screenplay for the movie was written by Tom Hanks and the film was meant to be released in theaters, but could not premiere because most theaters across the United States remain closed. Apple ultimately paid $70 million for the film, and it will see a premiere on ‌Apple TV+‌.

"Greyhound" is the first Tom Hanks movie that has seen a straight to streaming release, which Hanks called "an absolute heartbreak" in an interview earlier this week. "I don't mean to make angry my Apple overlords," said Hanks, "but there is a difference in picture and sound quality."

Apple plans to release "Greyhound" on Friday, July 10. Apple will also debut drama series "Little Voice" and short-form sports docuseries "Greatness Code" on that date.

This looks like such a great movie. Not sure I would have paid to go see it in a theater, but I'll happily watch from my living room this weekend.

Dang. That actually looks pretty incredible. I’ve been impressed by the standalone films ATV+ has released. “The banker” is one of my favorites.

At the beginning of this video it says “An Apple Original Film”. Did Apple have anything to do with this film besides paying $$$ for the rights to it?

Most platforms like Netflix and Amazon buy rights to some produced films and slap their logo on it.

As to the difference in sound quality and picture, I disagree. Once you take into account screaming kids, cell phones, sitting offset from the middle, people putting their feet on the back of your chair, etc, I have a better overall viewing experience at home, even if the audio stream is lossy.

Covid will take 10 years off the life of movie theaters. I think opening weekend for this movie will blow away expectations - I think generally speaking viewers are scraping the bottom of the barrel on novel viewing material. I've been waiting for Greyhound for a month and I haven't anticipated since the matrix.

Recent history is way more entertaining. Plus, Greatest generation.


A) Apple is sitting on $100 Billion cash. They don't need that money back.
B) The "first and only" decent picture on Apple TV+. Have you bothered to watch The Banker? It's the "first and (so far) only" decent picture on TV+ until this movie releases (and The Banker might still be better).

Not to mention Elephant Queen if you are in to nature docs. One of the best released in recent years.

I, for one, am ecstatic for this release. Early RT reviews have it at 74% which is not horrid.
