First Look and Release Date Revealed for New Tom Hanks Film ‘Finch’

Veteran actor Tom Hanks has been acting for several decades and shows absolutely no sign of slowing down. Last year, he starred in three films including News of the World which was nominated at the Academy Awards, and his upcoming film schedule is quite jam-packed as well.

Are you craving more Hanks? If so, you’re in for a treat because he is set to star in a brand-new post-apocalyptic science-fiction drama film titled Finch, which will be directed by Miguel Sapochnik and written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell.

Hanks will be starring alongside Caleb Landry Jones, Samira Wiley, Laura Harrier, and Skeet Ulrich. 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. 

Finch is scheduled to be released by Apple TV+ on November 5, 2021.
