Tom Hanks’ Post-Apocalyptic Movie ‘Bios’ Delayed Another 4 Months

The Tom Hanks thriller Bios has been pushed back another four months to August as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the entertainment industry (and like, everything else) into 2021.


Originally, the film was set to release in October of 2020, but was moved to April 16th, 2021. This latest delay was pushed by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment as the United States enters more mask mandates and lockdowns.

Bios is the story of a robotics engineer and inventor named Finch (Hanks) who survived an apocalyptic event with his dog, Goodyear. But as the man’s health continues to go downhill, he builds a new android caretaker for Goodyear.

We nominated Bios as one of our most anticipated films for 2021, so we’re definitely excited to see the film, while sad that it’s been postponed again.

Bios is directed by Game of Thrones‘ Miguel Sapochnik, written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell, while the legendary Robert Zemeckis is set as executive producer. You may remember that Hanks and Zemeckis have worked together in a few previous blockbuster hits, including Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and The Polar Express. The film also stars Skeet Ulrich, Caleb Landry Jones, Samira Wiley, and Laura Harrier.


Expect to see Bios hitting theaters on August 13 of this year. Or next year.

Shawn has been infatuated with the post-apocalyptic genre since he wore out his horribly American-dubbed VHS of the original Mad Max as a child. Shawn is the former Editor-in-Chief at Joystiq's Massively.com, creator of the Aftermath post-apocalyptic immersion event, and host of the Through the Aftermath podcast for over 11 years. He currently resides on top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere with his wife and four children.
