USS Greyhound, the new film starring Tom Hanks, was due to hit theaters, but the project is canceled due to the health crisis. According to Deadline, Apple obtained the rights to broadcast the film first on Apple TV +.
Several streaming services fought to get this movie first and Apple won the battle. The manufacturer would have paid about $ 70 million.
It is not specified when the film will be available on Apple TV +, except that it will be available soon. USS Greyhound was originally scheduled for June 19 in the United States and June 24 in France for theaters. But cinemas are closed in most countries, hence the interest in offering the film directly in streaming.
The synopsis of the film is as follows:
During the early days of the United States’ entry into World War II, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by Commander Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) of the United States Navy, disembarked. Ships cross the northern Atlantic, an area at risk under threat from the U-Boats. At the helm of the destroyer USS Keeling (radio code name Greyhound), Commander Krause confronts his inner doubts and demons, he who is sent to the front for the first time.
