- Tom Holland sat down to talk about Cherry ahead of the film's release.
- Cherry will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on March 12, 2021.
Apple's original film Cherry is set to premiere worldwide on Apple TV+ next month. Ahead of the film's release, Tom Holland sat down for an interview with the LA Times to talk about transitioning from a mainstream role like Spider-Man to something else entirely.
Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed Avengers: Endgame, pulled Holland aside while they were finishing the film to pitch Cherry to him. Holland says taking on this new kind of film was "a massive leap of faith."
Cherry follows the story of a young man who, after returning from the Iraq War, resorts to robbing banks to fuel his heroin addiction. Holland went through a major physical transformation for the role, losing around thirty pounds at times to bring to life someone who was suffering from heroin addiction.
