Apple Original Film 'Finch' Starring Tom Hanks to Premiere November 5

Apple today announced that the original film "Finch," starring Tom Hanks in its titular role, will premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, November 5 and shared a first-look image from the film.

Apple Films Tom Hanks Finch First LookThe first look at "Finch," shared by Apple.

The film, which is anticipated to be an awards season contender, revolves around a man, a robot (played by "Get Out" actor Caleb Landry Jones), and a dog that form an unlikely family. Apple describes the film as follows:

In "Finch," a man, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family in a powerful and moving adventure of one man's quest to ensure that his beloved canine companion will be cared for after he's gone. Hanks stars as Finch, a robotics engineer and one of the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a wasteland. But Finch, who has been living in an underground bunker for a decade, has built a world of his own that he shares with his dog, Goodyear. He creates a robot, played by Jones, to watch over Goodyear when he no longer can. As the trio embarks on a perilous journey into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation, who names himself Jeff, the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive. Their road trip is paved with both challenges and humor, as it's as difficult for Finch to goad Jeff and Goodyear to get along as it is for him to manage the dangers of the new world.

Apple won the rights to Finch earlier this year after bids from multiple streaming networks. It will be the second film starring Hanks to debut on ‌Apple TV+‌, following last year's war film "Greyhound." Finch arrives on ‌Apple TV+‌ later this year on November 5, adding to ‌Apple TV+‌'s growing selection of films.

Earlier today, Apple also shared a discussion to promote "CODA," another of its original films that is scheduled to premiere on ‌Apple TV+‌ on August 13. The discussion between the film's actors, including Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur, and Daniel Durant, and writer and director Siân Heder, covered incorporating American Sign Language on set, the significance of authentically casting and presenting people with disabilities, and the universality of stories.

I don't even need to read the synopsis. A cool-looking robot design and Tom Hanks, in a movie. ?

(Apple – give some customers early previews, please!)

EDIT: I read the synopsis. Postapocalyptic. Road trip. Perilous. Challenges. Teaching robot about humanity. I suspect this is going to make me cry.

Turner & Hooch, sci-fi edition?

I love Tom Hanks and enjoyed Greyhound. It may not be on the same caliber as Das Boot, The Hunt for Red October, or Crimson Tide. But it surely was enjoyable, great for COVID-19 stay-at-shelter days. A majority of movies on Apple TV+ are either documentaries or "serious." I like to see more casual fare like Finch and The Shrink Next Door.

On a related note, Apple TV+ Originals tab on Apple TV app is getting crowded. I would like to see "movies", "TV series", and "nonfiction/documentaries" get their own tab page. Lumping all movies as "feature films" makes it difficult to figure out their genre.
