In Finch, a man, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family, as the man tries to ensure his beloved canine companion will be cared for after he’s gone. Hanks stars as Finch, a robotics engineer and one of the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a wasteland. Finch, who has been living in an underground bunker for a decade, has built a world of his own that he shares with his dog, Goodyear. He creates a robot (played by Get Out‘s Caleb Landry Jones) to watch over Goodyear when he no longer can. As the trio embarks on a perilous journey into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive.
Originally to be released by Universal, Apple is now expected to premiere the film in awards season, perhaps with a qualifying theatrical run.
Apple saw success with the Tom Hanks film Greyhound which it acquired from Sony Pictures. It's likely hoping to replicate that success with Finch.
