Tom Hank’s ‘Greyhound’ will preview on July 10 on Apple TV+

“Greyhound,” a World War II movie written by and starring Tom Hanks, will premiere on Apple TV on July 10.

The film was set to launch in theaters on Father’s Day weekend, but that plans got canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most folks figured it would be re-slated for a later premiere in theaters. However, the picture was quietly shopped in a bidding war between various streamings services. Apple won by forking out US$70 million, its biggest feature commitment yet.

The movie is set early in World War II when an inexperienced U.S. Navy captain (Hanks) must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolfpacks. It’s based on a novel by C.S. Forester.
