The Internet’s Roasting Tom Holland’s New Movie For Its Terrible Poster

Tom Holland had a difficult year in 2020, first lending his voice to the box office disaster Dolittle, then redeeming himself with his second vocal performance in as many months with Pixar’s Onward, despite the film’s dismal box office earnings. But at least the Coronavirus epidemic was to blame this time, rather than the fact that the movie was terrible, as was the case with Dolittle.

The 24-year-old then gave his best performance of his young career in Netflix’s The Devil All the Time, which received acclaim from critics and fans alike, but his 2021 looks to be much larger. That is, assuming you overlook the troublesome YA adaption Chaos Walking, which has been on the shelf for months.

In addition to the mega-budget blockbusters Uncharted and Spider-Man 3, Holland also stars in Cherry, a semi-biographical thriller directed by the Russo brothers after they exited the Marvel Cinematic Universe in spectacular fashion with Avengers: Endgame. The siblings have already lauded their leading man for awards season glory, but based on the dreadful poster below, many people may be unable to figure out what the film’s title is. And it’s causing quite a stir on the internet.

Clearly, AppleTV+ are setting up Cherry as a serious awards contender in many of the major categories, and if screeners are being primed to get sent out, that means we surely can’t be too far away from the first full-length trailer, especially when the movie is set to debut in theaters on February 26th before heading to Apple’s in-house platform two weeks later. And despite the strange poster, it’s certainly shaping up to be a must-see.
