Greyhound Trailer

"The wolf pack's hunting us." Sony Pictures has revealed the first official trailer for a WWII naval action movie titled Greyhound, which is also the name of the ship that leads the way in this story (in case you're wondering why it's called Greyhound). Inspired by actual events, the screenplay is written by Tom Hanks, who also stars in this as Captain Ernest Krause. He leads an Allied convoy of 37 ships being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolf packs across the North Atlantic ocean towards the UK. The full cast includes Elisabeth Shue, Stephen Graham, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Maximilian Osinski, Lee Norris, Rob Morgan, Devin Druid, Michael Benz, and Matthew Zuk. This is now set to open in theaters everywhere in the middle of June this summer. Lots of CG naval warfare shots in this trailer, but it still looks super intense. As expected.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Aaron Schneider's Greyhound, direct from Sony's YouTube:

The only thing more dangerous than the front lines was the fight to get there. In the early days of WWII, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by captain Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) in his first command of a U.S. destroyer, crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while hotly pursued by wolf packs of Nazi U-boats. Greyhound is directed by American cinematographer / filmmaker Aaron Schneider, his second feature film after making Get Low previously. The screenplay is written by Tom Hanks, inspired by actual events. Based on the novel "The Good Shepherd" from C.S. Forester. Produced by Gary Goetzman. Sony will release Schneider's Greyhound in theaters everywhere starting on June 12th this summer. Want to watch?

this was totally off my radar---pun intended---but it looks good. Nice to see Elizabeth Shue in a big movie.

Interesting turn for Hanks. I was kind expecting him to fall into more dialogue heavy dramas. But this this looks like it will have some good action pieces.

I think he learned his lesson from the dreadfully boring and dull film that was; "Bridge of Spies"... A total bore fest of a film, and a total waste of time for everyone and all concerned. I hope he never makes another such film, 'cos that was bad, real bad!

Looks like something that Tom Hanks would indulge himself with ...

Hell, yeah! Tom surely loves WW2 history. So glad to see him in another.

Looks so much better than Midway was so far. As a navy vet, I'm intrigued and look forward to seeing this.

As a navy vet
They allow animals on navy ships & boats now? Wow, good job, but here's hoping there's a no horse rule, and as for sheep at sea....

This is another fictional telling of how the US wow the war. Its based on true events (i.e. The 6 year battle of the Atlantic), not an actual true story. The US only really entered the battle mid 1942, and by that time, the UK/Canada/Commonwealth forces etc had already fought the U-boat menace to a draw... Its the story of U-571 all over again, (a story of British heroism, told as if it was a US one). Actually more British/Commonwealth (Indian/African/Canadian/Australian/Caribbean) sailors lost their lives during the battle of the Atlantic, than US sailors, but ho-hum! Still, it looks like a good work of fiction, so I'll probably go and see it, just so long as it doesn't pander too much to that silly US narrative!
