Apple has released the official trailer for ‘Finch‘, the upcoming Amblin Entertainment-produced sci-fi film starring Tom Hanks, coming to TV+ in November.

In “Finch,” a man, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family in a powerful and moving adventure of one man’s quest to ensure that his beloved canine companion will be cared for after he’s gone. Tom Hanks stars as Finch, a robotics engineer and one of the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a wasteland. But Finch, who has been living in an underground bunker for a decade, has built a world of his own that he shares with his dog, Goodyear. He creates a robot, played by Caleb Landry Jones, to watch over Goodyear when he no longer can. As the trio embarks on a perilous journey into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation, who names himself Jeff, the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive. Their road trip is paved with both challenges and humour, as it’s as difficult for Finch to goad Jeff and Goodyear to get along as it is for him to manage the dangers of the new world.

Directed by Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones), the film was originally set to be released by Universal under the name ‘Bios’ back in October 2020, but was delayed multiple times due to movie theatres closing as a result of COVID-19. It was later acquired by Apple In May 2021. ’Finch’, which looks certain to be a feel-good tearjerker, will mark the second Tom Hanks outing for Apple TV+, following ‘Greyhound’ which premiered on July 2020 and set record opening weekend numbers for the service at the time.

Finch will premiere on Apple TV+ on November 5th.

Apple TV+ is priced at $4.99 per month or $49.99 annually after a free 7-day trial.
