Greyhound was initially scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on June 12, 2020, by Sony Pictures, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The distribution rights were then sold to Apple TV+, which will release the film digitally on July 10, 2020. It received generally positive reviews from critics, who highlighted the effective use of the 90-minute runtime.
During the early days of the United States’ involvement in World War II, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by Commander Ernest Krause, crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while being hotly pursued by a wolfpack of German U-boats. The film focuses on Krause, a career officer who was finally given command of a destroyer, USS Keeling (Call sign “Greyhound”). Unlike the prototypical hero, he must battle his own self-doubts and personal demons to be an effective leader of the defenders.
