Back in September of last year, we found out that Anthony and Joe Russo were getting back into their director chairs. Their first film since Avengers: Endgame, the upcoming movie is heading to Apple TV+ soon.
That film is called Cherry, a drama starring Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Ciara Bravo (Small Engine Repair). In December we learned that the film will have a limited theatrical run starting on February 26, after which it will premiere on Apple TV+ on March 12. So the wait isn’t that much longer.
But we’re still waiting for the official trailer, which may be coming soon if the appearance of a teaser trailer is any indication (via SlashFilm). The clip from the upcoming film, which you can watch below, shows off Tom Holland as he sits himself down in an Army recruitment office, signs the necessary paperwork, and sees himself shipped off.
Unfortunately for Holland’s character, Cherry, things don’t go right after that. Check out the clip:
And here’s the official, lengthy description of the upcoming film:
‘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 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. Brought to the screen in bold, gritty fashion by visionary directors Anthony and Joe Russo, ‘Cherry’ is a darkly humorous, unflinching coming-of-age story of a man on a universal quest for purpose and human connection.
This one’s going to be interesting, to say the least. It’s the first director’s gig for the Russo brothers since their stint in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And while Holland has had other gigs outside of the Spider-Man suit, this one looks a bit more dark than those other efforts.
It’s a big get for Apple TV+, in any event. As soon as we have an official trailer, we’ll be sure to share it.
Are you looking forward to checking this one out when it premieres on Apple TV+ in March?
