Greyhound Release Date Set for July 10 on Apple TV+

-

Apple today revealed that the Greyhound release date has been set for July 10. The movie, which was previously going to open in theaters on June 12, 2020, will make its global debut to audiences in over 100 countries on Apple TV+.

Tom Hanks stars as a longtime Navy veteran who, as a first-time captain, is tasked with protecting a convoy of 37 ships carrying thousands of soldiers and much-needed supplies across the treacherous waters of the Atlantic during World War II. For five days with no air cover, the captain and his small force of three escort ships must make their way through an area of the ocean known as “the Black Pit,” battling Nazi U-boats while protecting their invaluable ships and soldiers.

Greyhound is inspired by events during the Battle of the Atlantic, which took place in the earliest months of America’s alliance with Great Britain and the Allied Forces. Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan and Elisabeth Shue star alongside Hanks. Greyhound was written by Tom Hanks, directed by Aaron Schneider and produced by Gary Goetzman.

Apple landed the worldwide rights to Greyhound, a Playtone Production from Sony Pictures/Stage Six Films, following theater closures.

Greyhound marks the second partnership with Playtone and Apple, following a straight-to-series order for the sweeping drama series Masters of the Air, executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman. The upcoming international limited series is the first project green-lit by Apple with Apple serving as the studio.

Greyhound is based on the novel The Good Shepherd by C.S. Forester. The film will join a growing offering of acclaimed films on Apple TV+, including the upcoming documentary Dads, directed by Bryce Dallas Howard; On the Rocks, starring Bill Murray, Rashida Jones and directed by Sofia Coppola; official 2020 Sundance Selection and SXSW Louis Black “Lone Star” Award recipient Boys State; and critically-acclaimed films now streaming, including Beastie Boys Story, The Banker and Hala.

Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, as well as at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial. The Apple TV app will be available on Sony and VIZIO smart TVs later this year.

For a limited time, customers who purchase a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac or iPod touch can enjoy one year of Apple TV+ for free. This special offer is good for three months after the first activation of the eligible device.
