Tom Hanks' 'Bios' Moves Back 4 Months to August
Universal and Amblin are moving back the Tom Hanks feature Bios as studios continue to contemplate date shuffles amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.
The film will now open Aug. 13. It previously was slated for April and initially was supposed to bow in October 2020 before pandemic-related theater closures delayed it.
Heat Vision breakdown
Hanks stars as a robotics engineer who wants to ensure his beloved dog will be cared for after he is gone. Hanks' character is one of the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a wasteland, but he has been living underground in a bunker for a decade and has built his own world, which he shares with his dog, Goodyear.
Bios is directed by Miguel Sapochnik, known for his work on Game of Thrones, from an original screenplay by Craig Luck. The Handmaid's Tale's Samira Wiley also stars. Walden Media is producing alongside Universal and Amblin.
20th Century's Deep Water is also slated for Aug. 13.
