Tom Hanks stars as Finch, an engineer in a ruined world looking for a home for his unlikely family. We’re talking about a man, a robot and a dog.
Finch will begin to stream on Apple TV+ from November 5th. Alongside Hanks, we’ll see Samira Wiley, Skeet Ulrich and Laura Harrier. We’ll hear Caleb Landry Jones and the bot.
True Detective director Miguel Sapchnick has that role again, and it’s Robert Zemeckis as producer.
Apple has given us an official synopsis.
In “Finch,” a man, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family in a powerful and moving adventure of one man’s quest to ensure that 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. But 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 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, who names himself Jeff, the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive. Their road trip is paved with both challenges and humor, as it’s as difficult for Finch to goad Jeff and Goodyear to get along as it is for him to manage the dangers of the new world.
