MAJOR MOTION PICTURE: Cherry is now a major motion picture starring Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far from Home) and Ciara Bravo (A Teacher). Directed by the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Endgame) and distributed by Apple TV+, hype is building around the film nationally and internationally.
MOVIE BUZZ: Within 24 hours of its release, Cherry’s official trailer garnered over 1m views on YouTube; in less than a week, it has over 7.5m views and more than 150k engagements on social media. The film has already been covered by Entertainment Weekly and Vulture.
STAR POWER: Tom Holland has over 40m Instagram followers and, as Spiderman, is instantly recognizable. His fanbase is not only enormous, but voracious, and is sure to want more from the story he plays out.
FOR THE RUSSO BROTHERS, IT’S PERSONAL: The Russo Brothers are responsible for Avengers: Endgame, the highest grossing movie of all time. Cherry is their first movie since. In an interview with Variety, they say: “We responded very strongly to [Cherry]…We felt a strong connection to the setting and the experiences [Walker] was talking about, particularly the opioid addiction.”
NEW COVER: Our cover will feature Tom Holland and tie into the movie artwork. It will appeal to Holland’s audience and catch the attention of fans of the film.
APPLE+ AWARDS PUSH: Apple’s studio has launched a major marketing campaign for the movie—including billboards on Sunset Boulevard—and is quickly establishing the film as an early Oscar contender.
NATIONAL BESTSELLER: Cherry debuted on the NYT Hardcover Fiction list, reached No. 2 on the Los Angeles Times bestseller list.
AUDIENCE: Cherry was always going to appeal to a younger audience with its profanity, violence, and sexiness. With Tom Holland as the star, we’re diving deeper into this demographic, and will bridge the novel’s dark story and Holland’s fanbase.
AUTHOR: He’s out of jail and recently did a viral interview for Interview Magazine.
