When we think of Tom Holland, we think of Spider-Man. He’s Spidey. They are one and the same. Sweet, sweet Spidey baby boy. So small, so innocent, so superhero.
HOWEVER, today we got our first look at Cherry — Holland’s newest project and fourth team-up with the Russo brothers — and, WHEW BUDDY, Y’ALL. Stuff just got real serious, real quick. Check out the trailer:
The story — which is based on the novel of the same name by Nico Walker, which, in turn, is based on Walker’s own life — follows the story of a young man’s (Holland) spiral after he drops out of college and enlists in the Army.
Once out of the Army, the young man finds himself down a path of opioid addiction, which in turn leads — eventually — to bank robbery.
It’s for sure a departure from the typical fare we expect from Holland, which is exciting in itself, and has even been hyped as an “Oscar-worthy performance.” YOU GO, TOM! Give! Us! Range!
This film is also the Russo brothers’ first directing effort since Avengers: Endgame, and they’ve even described the project as “the most personal film” they’ve ever made.
And, stylistically, the film looks STUNNING. The action, the romance, the cinematography, the emotion, the color RED. Incredible! Take my money now!
So, yeah, there ya have it! Be sure to check out Cherry when it hits Apple TV+ March 12, 2021!
