Greyhound Trailer: Tom Hanks Revisits WWII by Sea


Tom Hanks is known for bringing some very iconic WWII stories to the screen both as the star of Saving Private Ryan and as a producer on the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers and The Pacific. Now this summer he will return to the theatre of war for Greyhound, a WWII film focusing on the Battle of the Atlantic. Hanks plays a U.S. Navy commander facing his first assignment escorting merchant ships across the North Atlantic under threat of attack from German U-boats. Hanks also wrote the script himself, adapting C.S. Forester’s novel The Good Shepherd, but his pal Steven Spielberg is not involved this time around. The movie is directed by Aaron Schneider (Get Low) and co-stars Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan and Elisabeth Shue. Greyhound hits theatres on June 12th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

  • That picture makes it look like a Zemeckis’ directed mo-cap film

    I watched the trailer specifically for that reason.

    Hanks is just not gritty enough for me to take him seriously as a commander not even as a seaman. And no, I did not like SPR.
