There are so many reasons to be excited for the upcoming World War II naval war film “Greyhound”. It starts with Tom Hanks, always good in front of the camera, but here he also serves as screenwriter. Even more, the movie is directed by Aaron Schneider, his first film since 2009 fantastic “Get Low”. Can’t wait to see him back in the director’s chair. And then you have the incredible true story from which the film is based.
Well now we get the first trailer and I’m even more excited. Hanks stars as Lieutenant Commander Ernest Krause, a career Navy officer finally given his first command. And boy it’s a doozy. He’s tasked with escorting an international convey across the treacherous North Atlantic. They immediately are hunted by a pack of German U-boats which puts Krause’s leadership and confidence to the ultimate test.
“Greyhound” is set to hit theaters June 12th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
Oh yes indeedydamned-do, right up our street! Looks fabulous! Is that Elizabeth Shue as the love interest?
That is Elizabeth Shue! I was completely caught off guard seeing her. I can’t remember the last movie I saw her in.
I saw her a little while back in prime/Netflix series about corrupt superheroes can’t remember what it’s called but she’s brilliant in it!
I think it’s great to see her still working. I know a guy…ahem…who was pretty fond of her back in her “Cocktail” days. I won’t name names though. 😂
I love Tom Hanks!
He’s so good. An instant draw for me. And he’s writing the screenplay. Can’t wait.
Great to hear he’s writing the screenplay! Looking forward to this.
I really liked “Get Low” and I like Tom Hanks in anything. Not usually my kind of movie but will see it because based on actual events — once it gets to DVD.
It’s great to hear from someone else who has seen “Get Low”. I really liked that movie and feel it was widely overlooked.
This trailer has me truly excited for this release. The movie looks to be very intense and well-acted. Hanks is usually mr.reliable for a good performance. War movies, as a history buff, always interest me and this one Im confident will not disappoint.
Doesn’t it look fantastic? This is a case where I was already looking forward to a movie but the trailer excited me even more. You’re right, Hanks is as reliable as they come. Can’t wait!
Definitely looks interesting and to see Tom Hanks lead a ship to go against a bunch of U-boats sounds pretty cool.
Yes! Sounds like a riveting story. And Hanks is as dependable as they come. It looks tense and thrilling. I’m in.
I’ll recommend Greyhound to my mum and stepdad
Will you wish Anthony, Happy Birthday this May?
