Apple premiered the first trailer for Cherry, a drama starring Tom Holland, on Thursday. Although best known for playing Spider-Man, Holland’s upcoming film is far grittier, telling the story of an Iraq war veteran with PTSD who spirals into drug addiction and bank robbery.

The movie is coming to theaters in February and Apple TV+ in the spring.

Don’t expect Cherry to be a Spider-Man sequel

Apple calls the upcoming film “an epic odyssey of romance, war, drug addiction, and crime.” Cherry (played by Holland) meets the love of his life in college, but risks losing her through a series of bad decisions and challenging life circumstances.

Cherry was directed by the Russo brothers, who also directed Avengers: Endgame. But their latest project is far more experimental. Co-director Joe Russo told Vanity Fair:

“[The protagonist] travels a great distance over a 15-year period,” Joe Russo said. “The movie’s broken up into six chapters that reflect those different periods, and each one has a different tone. It’s shot with different lenses, different production design. One’s got magical realism. Another chapter is absurdism. Another is horror…. There’s a bit of gonzo in it. It’s raw in its tone. He’s a character in existential crisis.”

Cherry, which also stars Ciara Bravo, will hit theaters on February 26. It will be an Apple TV+ exclusive on March 12.

Growing the Apple TV+ film library

Apple’s streaming service introduced three non-documentary films in 2020: The Banker (starring Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson), Greyhound (starring Tom Hanks) and On the Rocks (starring Bill Murray).

But the service already looks more ambitious in 2021. In addition to Cherry, Apple TV+ will premiere Palmer (starring Justin Timberlake) on January 29. And these are just some of 50 series and films, either streaming now or coming soon, available for $4.99 a month.
