It’s been a slow march towards the official release date for the upcoming drama Cherry, but we’re just about there. And ahead of the premiere, we finally have an official trailer.
On Thursday, Apple TV+ finally shared the official trailer for Cherry, which stars Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Ciara Bravo (Small Engine Repair). The film, which focuses on Holland’s character as a soldier with undiagnosed PTSD who goes down a dark path, is the first directed film by the Russo Brothers after Avengers: Endgame. Both Anthony and Joe Russo are directing the project for Apple TV+.
Here’s Apple’s very brief description of the film, attached to the trailer shared today:
In an epic odyssey of romance, war, drug addiction, and crime, a young man (Tom Holland) struggles to find his place in the world.
And here’s a far more lengthy synopsis of the 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.
We saw the first clip for the upcoming film earlier this month. But this official trailer shows off a lot more content (thanks to its runtime of almost three minutes), and does a good job of showcasing the tone of the upcoming film. I’ll just get out of the way and show the trailer now.
Cherry will have a limited theatrical run beginning February 26, 2021. After that, it will premiere on Apple TV+ on March 12, 2021.
Now that we have a trailer, what do you think? Will you be checking out the film when it launches?
