Apple Tv+’s new drama movie ‘Finch’ starring Tom Hanks premiered on Friday, November 5, 2021. Deadline reports that the film was a massive hit for the service, which set new audience records. “Finch” is directed by Miguel Sapochnik, written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powel, and is produced by Kevin Misher, Jack Rapke, and others.
The opening of Tom Hanks new movie ‘Finch’ was even bigger than ‘Greyhound’ on Apple TV+
Tom Hanks’ first movie on Apple TV+ ‘ Greyhound’ debuted on July 10, 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although Hanks said it was an “absolute heartbreak’ that the movie won’t be screened in theatres, Greyhound’s premiere was the most successful on Apple TV+. Now, that record is broken by another one of Hanks’ films.
As per the report, director Sapochnik said that his apocalyptic drama film “became Apple TV+’s most watch film by eclipsing Hanks’ previous Apple film, the WWII thriller Greyhound.” Apple does not share numbers but sources say that the new movie premiered in 100 countries and as the weekend progressed, its opening day’s audience numbers double that “generated the largest opening weekend ever on the two-year-old Apple TV+.”
It is further estimated that upcoming Apple original films like Swan Song, The Tragedy of Macbeth, Emancipation, and Killers of the Flower Moon will reap similar records for the video streaming service. “Finch” is available on Apple TV+ available across Apple devices and select third-party TV sets and consoles.
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.
