Having earned their audience acclaim with Marvel’s movie franchises in the last seven years, directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo have since garnered plenty of clout as a producing powerhouse for hit films to this day.
They’ve also managed to vie for other creative endeavors, including smaller scale dramatic crime opus, Cherry, after attaining the rights to Nico Walker’s best-selling novel. Casting Tom Holland (Spider-Man, Marvel’s MCU) and Ciara Bravo (Wayne, Small Engine Repair), the film now has an official trailer leaning delightfully into some fourth wall-breaking moments amidst the narrative.
Cherry (Tom Holland) drifts from college dropout to army medic in Iraq—anchored only by his one true love, Emily (Ciara Bravo). But after returning from the war with PTSD, his life spirals into drugs and crime as he struggles to find his place in the world.
Cherry will release in select theaters on February 26, and an exclusive run on Apple TV+ beginning March 12. Also starring are Kelli Berglund, Jack Reynor, Forrest Goodluck, Jeff Wahlberg, Michael Gandolfini, Kyle Harvey and Thomas Lennon.
