Tom Hanks defends his fleet against a Wolfpack of Submarines in the new trailer for ‘Greyhound’
Match bearings and shoot! The latest movie from Hollywood heavyweight, Tom Hanks called ‘Greyhound‘ has dropped its first trailer today. Based on the novel called ‘The Good Shepard‘ by C.S Forester, the film tells the true tale of an Allied convoy of 37 ships sailing across the North Atlantic on their way to England, led by Captain Ernest Krause and being chased by ‘Wolf’ packs of German U-Boats during the early days of World War II. Let’s take a look at the trailer:
Ok, so the film looks really intense and a good old fashioned war movie. If the film manages to live up to what the trailer promises, we could be in for a treat upon the film’s release on June 12th. Hanks looks to be on top form once again as Krause, who is on his very first command of a U.S Navy Destroyer. He is ably supported by Elizabeth Shue, Stephen Graham, Carl Glusman and Rob Morgan amongst others. The film’s screenplay has also been written by Hanks, doubling down on his duties in the movie. The film was due for release on May 8th but it apparently has nothing to do with the studio’s chopping and changing their release schedules for their main summer features due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak that is sweeping the world right now.
To complement the release of the film’s first trailer, Sony has also dropped the first poster for the movie and we can take a look at it below:
I will go out on a limb here and say that the film could possibly another winner from Hanks and, even though it is very early days, it could be good enough to be a potential Academy botherer at next years awards. That’s assuming, of course, that the film doesn’t sink like a depth charge. But Hanks rarely makes bad movies so we can hold out hope he has delivered one of this summer’s best films amongst the usual blend of big-budget blockbusters.
Greyhound will be sailing into Multiplexes on June 12 2020.
