FINCH (2021) Preview of Tom Hanks post-apocalypse sci-fi pic



Finch is a 2021 American science fiction film set on a post-apocalyptic earth, in which a lonely man builds a robot. The latter learns to protect the life of his creator’s beloved dog, learns about life, love, friendship and what it means to be human.

Directed by British-born Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones series; Iron Fist series; Repo Men) from a screenplay co-written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell.

The movie stars Tom Hanks, Caleb Landry Jones, Lora Martinez-Cunningham, Marie Wagenman, Christopher Farrar, Oscar Avila and Kennedi Butler.


Finch (Tom Hanks) is a robotics engineer and one of the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a wasteland. But Finch, who has been living in an underground bunker for a decade, has built a world of his own that he shares with his dog, Goodyear. He creates a robot (Caleb Landry Jones), to watch over Goodyear when he no longer can.

As the trio embarks on a perilous journey into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation, who names himself Jeff, the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive. Their road trip is paved with both challenges and humour, as it’s as difficult for Finch to goad Jeff and Goodyear to get along as it is for him to manage the dangers of the new world…
