In “Finch” a man, his dog and an android take a road-trip. Ok, so there’s more to the upcoming post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama than that, but that’s a key part of the shiny new trailer released yesterday from Apple TV+. If I haven’t sold you yet, how about this – the man is played by Tom Hanks. I don’t know about you, but that’s enough to get me excited.
The film is directed by Miguel Sapochnik (“Game of Thrones”) who turns earth into a dry desolate wasteland. It’s where Hanks, an inventor, befriends a stray dog and builds them an android companion. But when a deadly storm approaches, the unorthodox three amigos are forced to flee. Their journey to a safer place is filled with all sorts of natural and unnatural threats. Sounds thrilling. But the trailer also shows sweetness and a lot of heart. Sounds great.
“Finch” premieres on Apple TV+ November 5th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
