With weeks to go until the release of Cherry in theaters before eventually making its way to Apple TV+, the Russo Brothers have shared a first look clip at the film. Cherry is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Nico Walker and follows Holland in the title role — a disenfranchised young man from Ohio who meets the love of his life Emily (Ciara Bravo) only to risk losing her through bad decisions and challenging circumstances. Cherry ends up serving in the Iraq war as an Army medic, but when he returns home, he has to battle his undiagnosed PTSD, causing him to spiral into drug addiction. After draining his finances, Cherry turns to bank robbing to fund his addiction, shattering his relationship with Emily along the way.
The clip released, which you can watch below, shows his enlistment in the military.
