Tom Hanks takes a trip with his pet dog as well as a robotic in the initial photo from Finch. The movie, previously entitled Bios, will certainly be Hanks' 2nd launching solely on Apple TELEVISION+ after 2020's Greyhound. Though Hanks was at first distressed his World War II thriller did not obtain a staged launch, the Oscar-winning star transformed song after Greyhound took place to end up being the banner's most-watched movie, with viewership numbers equal to a typical summer season smash hit. Now, Finch will certainly maintain Hanks with Apple TELEVISION+ for the time being.
Finch is from supervisor Miguel Sapochnik, that is recognized for leading a few of one of the most enthusiastic as well as action-packed episodes of Game of Thrones. With a script from two first-time screenwriters Craig Luck as well as Ivor Powell, Finch appears to be a more subdued and contemplative drama. Hanks stars as the titular Finch, a robotics engineer and one of the few survivors left on Earth after a cataclysmic solar event wipes out most of humanity. To keep him company in his underground bunker, Finch has his dog, Goodyear, and a robot named Jeff (played by Caleb Landry Jones) that he built to look after his canine companion once he's gone.
Now, the first look at Finch is here. The image comes from Deadline and shows Hanks' Finch alongside Goodyear and Jeff in what appears to be a bunker, but as indicated by their luggage, the trio is about to embark on a road trip. The film's release date on Apple TV+, November 5, was also announced to accompany the first look. Check out the image below:
Those who have been following Finch since it was first known as Bios have probably been wondering what type of design they would go with for Hanks' robot co-star. With so many famous movie robots to draw from, it looks like they went with something reminiscent of Neil Blomkamp's Elysium or Chappie rather than something more humanoid. This is probably because Finch likely doesn't have much at his disposal.
Based on this image, it appears Finch, Goodyear, and Jeff will have to venture into a desolate, post-apocalyptic landscape. The main objective of this journey is unclear, but along the way, Finch will teach his robot all about what it means to be alive. Everything considered, Finch is sure to be an awards season contender for Apple TV+, which still lags way behind Netflix and Disney+, but is primed to see a big boost in subscribers with several exciting releases currently on the way, such as Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. Now, Finch can be shoed in among them with a release this Fall.
Apple Original Films has just released a first look at the upcoming sci-fi drama Finch, starring Tom Hanks, Caleb Landry Jones and Skeet Ulrich. The image shows a pensive Hanks joined with his dog and robot, getting ready to embark on a quest across the harsh landscape in a post-apocalyptic world. The mission is to build a robot to save a dog after his person is gone. Gimme the tissues!
In Finch, Tom Hanks, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family, with Tom Hanks playing a robotics engineer who has survived a cataclysmic solar event and global apocalypse inside an underground bunker. He is now on a quest to ensure that his dog, Goodyear, will be cared for after he's gone. He creates a robot named Jeff (voiced by Caleb Landry Jones) to watch over his dog when he no longer can, and the three together embark on a journey across the American West to show Jeff the joys of being alive.
Executive producer Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) directed Finch from an original screenplay by Craig Luck, his feature-film writing debut, and Ivor Powell of Alien and Blade Runner fame. Finch, formerly titled Bios, was meant to be released theatrically by Universal for this August, but Apple has now picked it up and will release the film on Apple TV+ November 5.
We'll be seeing a few Tom Hanks tearjerkers in the future with his upcoming films. He's producing and starring in A Man Called Ove, a remake of the Oscar winning (Best Foreign Film) 2015 Swedish movie of the same name that features a cranky, suicidal retired man who strikes up an unlikely friendship with his boisterous new neighbors. Both movies are based on the novel of the same name by Fredrik Backman.
We'll see him as Geppetto opposite Benjamin Evan Ainsworth (The Sandman) in Pinocchio. The film is based on the Disney classic, directed by Robert Zemeckis from a screenplay by Zemeckis and Chris Weitz, and produced by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is a CGI/live-action adaptation of the 1940 film of the same name. The cast also includes Cynthia Erivo, and Luke Evans with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Keegan-Michael Key and Lorraine Bracco in voice roles.
He's also on board for the new Wes Anderson project. It's reported that the 2-time Oscar winner will be shooting in Spain with Anderson alums Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, as well as Adrien Brody. While we know the film will be written as well as directed by Anderson, the plot is still tightly under wraps. Sources say the role “is small and could be cameo-like in nature.”
And if you STILL can't get enough Hanks, simply today he put his beloved Airstream trailer he lived in while shooting dozens of motion pictures up for public auction. “I shan't forget night shoots on Gump and The Green Mile with the windows open and the cool air coming in. Or the time Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton and I watched a Buster Keaton documentary on the TV – before running through the Forest Lawn cemetery in our Apollo 13 costumes to pay homage at his grave.” Adding, “You haven't lived well until you survive a movie-stopping thunderstorm in an Airstream while on location in Carolina.”
