Many would recall Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan. Fronting Captain John Miller, the 1998 production is still considered one of the most iconic war films in cinematic history. Adding to this legacy, the 63-year-old has returned to genre with a leading appearance in Greyhound. Released overnight, we now have closer look at an exciting trailer.

Set in the early days of World War II, Greyhound follows Capt. Ernest Krause who leads an international convoy of 47 allied ships as it crosses the notorious and treacherous North Atlantic whilst being pursued by Nazi submarines. The Sony Pictures film is based on C. S. Forester’s 1955 novel The Good Shepherd, is directed by Aaron Schneider while Tom Hanks also produced and wrote the screenplay for the forthcoming release.

Alongside co-stars Rob Morgan, Stephen Graham, and Elisabeth Shue, the crew will face challenges and “bring hell from on high” to reach their final destination of England. Are they successful?

Greyhound will drop into cinemas from June 12. Tune into the trailer below.
