Apple TV+ shares first official trailer for upcoming sci-fid drama ‘Finch’ starring Tom Hanks

Some of the projects coming to Apple TV+ have a quick turnaround time from initial announcement to release date. For example, it was only in May of this year when we first heard about the upcoming sci-fi drama Finch, set to star Tom Hanks (Castaway, Greyhound). By the time August rolled around we even knew when we'd get to watch it via Apple's original streaming service. And now we have the first official trailer.

Apple TV+ film ‘Swan Song’ starring Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, and Awkwafina set to premiere December 17

Back in February of last year, Apple officially announced it had secured the streaming rights to a futuristic drama starring Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and directed by Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer). It was described as a "genre-bending drama" at the time, but, unfortunately, there wasn't much else to go on. Certainly not a release date. But that's changing today.

John Lithgow joins Julianne Moore in Apple TV+ film ‘Sharper’

Back in June of last year, we heard that Julianne Moore (Lisey's Story) had joined the cast of a film called Sharper, a co-production from Apple Original Films and A24. It's been relatively quiet on that front ever since, aside from casting news in August of this year. And now it's more of the same before production on the film officially starts.

Apple TV+ film ‘On the Rocks’ is coming soon to DVD and Blu-ray

One of the things Apple TV+ needs is a library of content, which will help keep people subscribed to the service when they run out of new Ted Lasso episodes to watch. Which is why, normally, you won't see any of the films or TV series get a physical release. But it looks like On the Rocks, which stars Rashida Jones and Bill Murray, is going that route anyway.

The company has partnered up with MGM to bring a retrospective, looking back at Craig's stint as the titular spy, exclusively to the Apple TV app.
