Tom Hanks’ new movie Greyhound is set to be released on Apple TV+ on July 10, 2020. The movie was supposed to be released in theaters this summer, but it was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tom has spoken out about how he is “heartbroken” that it won’t be released in theaters.

The reasoning is that the World War II film is meant to be seen on the big screen. He said he is grateful it is being released at all on the streaming service, but of course, there is a difference in picture and sound quality on televisions.

More recently, Tom added that he is still thankful the movie will be seen by audiences. He said, “This is a magnificent gift that’s come to us because of Apple. Because COVID-19 did something heartbreaking to us all. It closed down the theatres. We don’t have the cinema.”

He continued, “There isn’t anybody that doesn’t like going to see a good movie with 800 other people and coming out with something in common. Barring that, Apple television has saved the day for us. We had a magnificent movie that was not going to be seen because of the realities.”

He also added, “We didn’t know that at the time we made the film, we were just trying to make a lean, new spare version about procedures and behaviours about how difficult it was to stay alive in the North Atlantic in 1942.”
