Explosive Trailer For WWII Movie Greyhound Showcases Tom Hanks Making Important Phone Calls

Sony's latest World War II movie, Greyhound, is coming in June and stars Tom Hanks as a ship captain, who has some dire phone calls to make.


This June, Sony Pictures is taking us back to World War II for the upcoming movie Greyhound. However, the latest flick about one of the largest wars in the planet's history will follow the naval forces of the allies.

Directed by Aaron Schneider and written by Hanks--based on a novel by C.S. Forester--the first trailer for the new film has arrived. You can check it out below, and it does feature quite a few scenes with Hanks character, Commander Ernest Krause, talking on the phone.

Inspired by actual events, Greyhound follows Krause, a captain of a naval skipper, as he joins forces with other allied boats in order to take on German U-boats during the height of the second world war. This is Hanks third feature-length film he's written. In 2011, he penned Larry Crowne, and in 1996, he directed, wrote, and starred in That Thing You Do.

Greyhound also stars Elisabeth Shue (Adventures in Babysitting), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (6 Underground), and Karl Glusman (Devs).

Greyhound will hit theaters on June 12.
