Today at AFI Fest in Hollywood, Apple Original Films hosted the world premiere of the highly anticipated feature "Swan Song," starring two-time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali, which will debut in select theaters and on Apple TV+ on Friday, December 17.

Swan Song is set in the near future and is described as "a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Ali), a loving husband and father diagnosed with a terminal illness who is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief."

Apple says Swan Song "explores how far we will go, and how much we're willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love."

The film comes from Academy Award winner Benjamin Cleary. The film will debut on the streaming platform and in select theaters on Friday, December 17. Apple TV+ is available on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and the best TVs for Apple TV 2021.

This weekend saw Jennifer Garner join the Apple TV+ series The Last Thing He Told Me, based on the Laura Dave book by the same name.
