First Glance: “Cherry”


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.

  1. After seeing him in The Devil All the Time, I think Tom Holland is going to be one of the great actors. He’s got the stage presence. Sometimes self-narration works sometimes it doesn’t. Looks like one worth seeing.

  2. This looks incredible and I’m glad Tom Holland is doing some serious shit as it looks intense. The only thing about the trailer I don’t like is that cover of “Time in a Bottle”. What is up with metal doing folk ballads? That is just wrong. BLECH!!!
