Trailer: Tom Holland goes for broke in ‘Cherry’
Apple has released the first full trailer for Cherry, which takes the Russo Brothers and Tom Holland out of the Marvel universe and into a kaleidoscope of drugs, trauma and existisitential dread.
Cherry follows the wild journey of a disenfranchised young man from Ohio who meets the love of his life, only to risk losing her through a series of bad decisions and challenging life circumstances. Inspired by the best-selling novel of the same name, Cherry features Tom Holland (the Spider-Man series) in the title role as an unhinged character who drifts from dropping out of college to serving in Iraq as an Army medic and is only anchored by his one true love, Emily (Ciara Bravo).
When Cherry returns home a war hero, he battles the demons of undiagnosed PTSD and spirals into drug addiction, surrounding himself with a menagerie of depraved misfits. Draining his finances, Cherry turns to bank robbing to fund his addiction, shattering his relationship with Emily along the way.
The film is written by Angela Russo-Otstot and Jessica Goldberg (based on the novel by Nico Walker) and helmed by Avengers and Captain America directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Cherry will be in theaters on February 26 and exclusively on Apple TV+ March 12.
