“Sometimes I feel like I’ve seen everything that’s going to happen. And it’s a nightmare.” That line of dialogue from “Cherry” really sums up the new trailer’s vibe nicely. This emotionally dense and dark-looking Apple Original reunites Tom Holland with the MCU’s Avengers architects Anthony and Joe Russo. But rest assured, judging by our first look this isn’t another playfully boyish Peter Parker type of character. It’s a much more serious role and Holland seems fully committed.
The trailer opens with 24-year-old Holland not stopping a bank robbery like his web-slinging MCU alter-ego but committing one. From there we see the domino effect of his troubled life – military combat, PTSD, opioid addiction, and crime. It’s heavy stuff and the movie doesn’t look to be taking any shortcuts. ￼The big question is whether or not Holland can sell such a dramatic swing (no pun intended) in ￼intensity and tone. He’s shown off ￼an impressive range before so I’m thinking he can.
“Cherry” hits theaters February 26th and will stream on Apple TV+ on March 12th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.￼
