GREYHOUND - Official Trailer (HD) | Apple TV+.
During WWII the Germans deploy large numbers of U-boats into the Atlantic to disrupt convoys of supplies between North America and Britain. The convoys are organized as groups of a dozen to several dozen freight and passenger ships and are assigned military vessels of various size as escorts in case they are attacked at sea. Although the convoy is protected by shore-based military aircraft when sailing near the shore, for most of the voyage is in the Mid-Atlantic gap area where the only protection for the convoy is the assigned military vessel escort alone. Commander Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) is assigned with the destroyer USS Keeling, codenamed GREYHOUND, along with two British destroyers; HMS James, codenamed HARRY, an unnamed destroyer, codenamed EAGLE (although the CGI model used is of ORP Błyskawica (H34), a Polish Grom-class destroyer), and the Canadian Flower Class corvette, HMCS Dodge, codenamed DICKIE, to escort convoy HX-25, consisting of 37 Allied ships to Liverpool.
Still 3 days away from Liverpool, sonar on the Greyhound identifies an incoming unidentified vessel at 1500 metres and closing in on the convoy. The ship is soon identified as a U-boat by Greyhound and the destroyer prepares to intercept. At 1000 metres, it is clear that the U-Boat is preparing a torpedo attack and Greyhound prepares to fire a full pattern of depth charges to destroy the U-Boat. A single torpedo from the U-boat misses, and Greyhound fires her depth charges effectively and destroys the U-boat.
Although the crew is pleased, they soon receive news that sonar is picking up multiple targets coming approaching slowly from the distance. It appears that before being destroyed, the lone U-boat managed to send a radio alert to its fellow U-boat captains. Within minutes, a wolfpack of six U-boats are identified by sonar staying just out of firing range of the convoy. Commander Krause concludes that the wolfpack is waiting for nightfall in order to conduct a night attack on the convoy and his destroyers.
