It’s been over two decades since Saving Private Ryan but Tom Hanks is heading back to World War 2 for a movie he also wrote the screenplay of, Greyhound. Hanks stars as Commander Ernest Krause, who is in command of a 37 convoy crossing the North Atlantic to reach England in 1942. At a certain point, the convoy has to lose their aerial protection and the five days when they are more vulnerable is when a fleet of German U-boats attack. It’s Krause’s first time making the crossing and he has to coordinate a defense to fight back against the subs and keep as many men and ships safe as he can. Elisabeth Shue, Stephen Graham, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Karl Glusman, and Maximillian Osinski co-star and the movie is directed by Aaron Schneider, who has mostly been a cinematographer but directed the 2009 Robert Duvall movie Get Low previously. It seems like an interesting area World War 2 that hasn’t really been covered in film and anything with Tom Hanks is a must-watch. It’s out on June 12th this summer and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
