The Cherry actor Tom Holland is labeled as a junkie in the new posters. Anthony and Joe Russo’s upcoming crime drama is based on the novel of the same name written by Nico Walker. It stars Tom Holland in the character of Cherry, Ciara Bravo as Emily, Jack Reynor as Roy, Jamie Brewer as Shelly, Fionn O’Shea as Arnold, and Adam Long as Staff Sgt. Greene.
The plot of the movie follows an Army medic suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The rights of the novel were purchased by the AGBO production company in August 2018. Holland entered the project in March 2019. And later, the other cast of the movie, including Jack Reynor, Ciara Bravo, Kyle Harvey, Forrest Goodluck, and Michael Gandolfini, joined the cast. The shooting of the film started on 15 July 2019 and wrapped on 20 January 2020.
The lead cast of the movie, Holland, is known for his role in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s superhero movies, including Spider-Man: Homecoming, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, and Spider-Man: Far From Home, and its sequel. The actor won the youngest BAFTA Rising Star Award at the age of twenty. Among many, Cherry is also one of Holland’s upcoming movies fans are impatiently waiting for.
The makers of Cherry shared that the movie is divided into several parts that complete a story. Each part depicts glimpses of the fifteen years of the life of the protagonist. The parts are shot in each different movie with a different tone. The directors shared that the chapters will explore distinct cinematic choices, including absurdism, brutal realism, humor, and horror. The movie is scheduled to release on 26 February 2021 in theatres and stream on Apple TV+ on 12 March 2021.
Last week the team shared the movie’s poster, and the poster quickly became the topic of discussion for its misprinting. The film received negative publicity at the very beginning of its promotional campaign. However, Cherry has recovered from that confusion too and is now moving forward with its awards campaign.
Recently, the aspiring director Eric Cameron, who has worked with Holland and the Russo brothers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, noted that Cherry’s poster has sprung across New York City. And each poster showing the different characters of Holland, like a junkie, soldier, and student. The actor is also shown as a thief and lover. Each poster of the movie is featured for the award category, including Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Picture, and Best Actor.
Cameron tweeted two tweets on Twitter sharing six posters. To post each tweet he used different captions.
However, the team has not revealed many details about the movie, but it is clear that it is aiming for the 2020-21 awards. The project is also getting much attention for the star cast and big names connected with the film. Cherry sounds like an interesting movie with a unique approach to create a different cinematic experience. The movie has built up reasonable hype, but its prospects won’t truly become clear until the film is released.
Holland has undergone an intense journey while creating the character for the film. He has to explore the traumatized character into many layers, from a student to a soldier to a criminal. The movie is a great opportunity for the actor, and it might help him to grab a few awards.
