Last month, Apple inked a $70 million deal to premiere the upcoming Tom Hanks World War II film Greyhound. Following that announcement, Apple today has shared that it will release the film on Apple TV+ on July 10.

As we explained last month, Greyhound was originally scheduled to debut in theaters and normal distribution channels by Sony Pictures, but the COVID-19 pandemic caused a shift in plans. Various streaming services tried to acquire the film, but Apple came in atop, reaching a deal in the range of $70 million.

Sony Pictures had originally planned to release the film in theaters on May 7. That release was delayed until June 19 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Sony ended up scrapping the release entirely as theaters face long-term shutdowns due to the pandemic.

When Greyhound is released through Apple TV+, subscribers will be able to watch through the Apple TV app on a variety of devices. This includes iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac, as well as platforms such as Roku and Fire TV.

Here is the short summary of Greyhound from Apple:

Inspired by real events, Captain Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) leads an international convoy of 37 ships on a treacherous mission across The Atlantic to deliver thousands of soldiers and much-needed supplies to Allied forces. Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan, and Elisabeth Shue star alongside Hanks. The Apple Original film was directed by Aaron Schneider and produced by Gary Goetzman.
