A lot of things changed following the global spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. And that includes altering major film releases, which turned out to be good news for Apple TV+.
Last month we reported that Greyhound, an action thriller set during World War II and starring Tom Hanks (Cast Away), was slipping the traditional theatrical release window due to the global pandemic. As a result, there was a bidding war for streaming services to obtain the film, and Apple won out. Which means we can add Tom Hanks as yet another legendary actor that has released content for Apple’s streaming service.
As the title suggests, now we know when we can all watch the film: July 10, 2020.
Inspired by real events, Captain Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) leads an international convoy of 37 ships on a treacherous mission across The Atlantic to deliver thousands of soldiers and much-needed supplies to Allied forces. Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan, and Elisabeth Shue star alongside Hanks. The Apple Original film was directed by Aaron Schneider and produced by Gary Goetzman.

So, we don’t have long to wait before this film makes its debut on Apple TV+. Are you looking forward to this one? Let us know in the comments.
