We all know Tom Holland as the King of Spoilers. So much so that he was cordially invited not to talk about any of the movie’s plots. 2020 was a mixed year for Tom Holland, one that saw him lend his voice to the awful box office disaster Dolittle, before he redeemed himself with his second vocal performance in the space of a few months, although Pixar’s Onward also suffered from poor financial returns. But at least that time the Coronavirus pandemic was to blame rather than the fact that the movie sucks, which was most definitely the case with Dolittle.
The 24-year-old then delivered the best work of his young career in Netflix’s The Devil All the Time, receiving rave reviews from critics and fans alike, but his 2021 is shaping up to be even bigger. Of course, that’s if you ignore the troubled YA adaptation Chaos Walking, which has been left sitting on the shelf for months.
As well as mega-budget blockbusters Uncharted and Spider-Man 3, Holland also takes top billing in semi-biographical thriller Cherry, which marks the first directorial effort from the Russo brothers since they departed the Marvel Cinematic Universe in spectacular style thanks to Avengers: Endgame. The siblings have already touted their leading man for awards season glory, but based on the terrible poster that you can see below, a lot of people might not be able to tell what the title of the movie even is. And the internet is having a field day with it.
On the one hand, this is absolutely atrocious, on the other hand, we would likely not be talking about this movie were this poster not so absolutely atrocious.

I’m no prescriptivist, but there is no way that says CHERRY:

love how it still reads as “CHERK” even when you squish it down (though, excuse the dirty edit being done here)

someone sent in a final_FINAL.psd version instead of final_FINAL2.psd

The biopic we all need right now.

Variety has announced that this poster was a misprint and has shared the correct version. Tom Holland is a great guy, and we don’t want him to go through this.
So if that is true, we hope that the poster is fake, and hope for something better. Let us know what you think of the poster.
