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.
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.
