If a solar flare hit Earth and destroyed everything, wouldn't Tom Hanks be the guy we all chose to lead us to safety?
Apple TV Plus thought so, as Hanks is the unlikely titular hero in Finch.
The official trailer dropped Monday:
In the nearly three-minute video, Finch explains that he hid—"frightened and so alone"—as the above-mentioned solar flare scorched crops and food—in an underground bunker. That's when he found his beloved dog, Goodyear, who is his only companion while developing a robot. The robot is meant to help them "find a new home ... in a dangerous and ravaged world."
The sci-fi adventure drama was directed by Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones, True Detective) and co-written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell.
Finch will premiere Nov. 5.
