Tom Hanks Explains Why the Robot Matters, in a First Look at Finch

We are days away from the official release of Finch at AppleTV+. Today, the streamer debuted a featurette from the upcoming sci-fi movie featuring star Tom Hanks, and plenty of fresh footage. In addition to some clips from the film itself, the video has an abundance of behind-the-scenes peeks. After introducing his character, Hanks describes the engineer’s companions: a dog and a robot called Jeff. The actor also says that Finch needed to build a robot, ironically, to save his humanity. In the story, the trio will have to take a desperate trip to San Francisco to save themselves from certain death.

Game of Thrones and Altered Carbon alum Miguel Sapochnik directed a story by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell. The lengthy description for Finch reads:

“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 [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, 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.”

Apple TV+ will release Finch on November 5.
