It’s not all doom and gloom in the post apocalypse when Tom Hanks is involved. As Apple release the official Trailer for their upcoming sci-fi drama Finch and Hanks is doing anything, he does it with his team.
Hanks may not work in sci-fi as much as other genres, when he does it’s usually very engaging stuff. The Wachowski’s Cloud Atlas in 2013 probably his last most known film with The Circle (2017) his least remembered.
This time he plays an robotic engineer who is one of the very few survivors of an cataclysmic solar event. He finds unlikely friendship in the shape of a dog (called Goodyear) making life underground. He decides to put his experience to the test and build a robot (voiced by Caleb Landry Jones) to look after the dog when he’s not around.

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. 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 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 humor, 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.
Finch will premiere globally on Apple TV+ from 5th November.
