Tom Hanks WWII war drama Greyhound gets first trailer

Sony Pictures released first trailer for it’s upcoming war drama called Greyhound set during early days of WWII starring Tom Hanks, who also wrote the script. Hanks (Saving Private Ryan, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Toy Story) plays Commander Ernest Krause, an inexperienced U.S. Navy captain that must lead an Allied convoy being hunted by Nazi U-boats.

I’m currently rewatching a ton of WWII content so this seems interesting to me and trailer is solid although it’s evident it will be one more CGI-heavy Hollywood movie which I personally dislike. As I said before it’s not that I’m absolutely against CGI if used sparingly but I miss good old days of practical effects. But we’ll see, maybe in final product CGI won’t be so obvious like in this trailer.

Greyhound is directed by relatively unknown Aaron Schneider although he directed critically acclaimed Get Low with Robert Duvall and Bill Murray in 2009. and  Two Soldiers back in 2003. which won Oscar for Best Short Film.

Here’s a trailer.
