Apple has today announced that Finch will debut on Apple TV+ on November 5.

In a press release the company stated:

Apple Original Films announced today that the highly anticipated film "Finch" will debut on Apple TV+ on Friday, November 5. "Finch" stars Tom Hanks and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Caleb Landry Jones ("Get Out," "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"), who recently won best actor at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.

Finch is set following a cataclysmic solar event:

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.

Hanks previously starred in Apple TV+'s WWII thriller Greyhound, which debuted last year.

  • So, Love and Monsters, but with Tom Hanks replacing Dylan O’Brien? Umm, yeah, that’s a pass. Fortunately, AppleTV+ has so much more good stuff to keep watching anyway. On to more Ted Lasso!
