First Look at Tom Hanks Sci-Fi Drama FINCH Plus a Premiere Date on Apple TV+
Apple TV+ has released a first look photo of the upcoming Tom Hanks sci-fi drama Finch, and they’ve announced that it will premiere on November 5th. Finch was directed by Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones, True Detective), and it was produced by Robert Zemeckis.
In the film, Hanks plays a robotics engineer named Finch who is among the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event. “While that event left the world a wasteland, Finch has built a world of his own in the time since, which he shares with his beloved dog, Goodyear. Also living with Finch in his underground bunker is a robot (played by Caleb Landry Jones) that he’s built to watch over Goodyear when he no longer can.”
Ultimately, “the trio embarks on a road trip into a desolate American West, and while on this journey, Finch looks to show his creation — who has named himself Jeff — the joy and wonder that come with being alive.”
The rest of the cast includes Samira Wiley, Skeet Ulrich, and Laura Harrier. The script for the film comes from Ivor Powell and Craig Luck, who has made his feature-film writing debut with this project.
Some of the other producers on the film include Kevin Misher (Coming 2 America, Fighting with My Family), Jack Rapke (Cast Away, Flight), and Jacqueline Levine (Witches, Allied).
Finch is an ImageMovers and Misher Films production presented by Amblin Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment, in association with Walden Media.
