Greyhound surpassed previous records and generated the biggest release of the opening weekend on Apple TV +. The Tom Hanks WWII movie, which arrived on Friday, also brought a significant proportion of new service registrations. Thirty percent of viewers are newcomers (via Deadline).
“Greyhound” breaks Apple TV + records
We know exactly which Greyhound movie or series has surpassed, or how many viewers it has actually attracted. However, combined with the new registrations, Apple must begin to rejoice in its investment in Greyhound. The limited series Defending Jacob, which stars Chris Evans, had previously been known for breaking records.

Partially filmed on board a retired Navy ship
Mr. Hanks appears in The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday. During the interview, the actor revealed that executives had attempted to remove certain military terms from the film. Mr. Hanks did not explain whether they were executives from Apple or from other studios. Given that he previously had to go back to comments made about Apple, that’s probably for the best.
He also revealed that for about two weeks, the cast and crew showed Greyhound aboard the USS Kidd, a retired Navy ship, on the Missippi River.
