CLEVELAND — Editor's note: Video at the top of this story was originally published on Nov. 4, 2019.
It has been more than a year since Cleveland’s own Russo brothers brought Cherry -- their latest production -- to film in Northeast Ohio.
Now, we’re getting our first official look at a clip from the movie, which stars Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, ahead of its March 12 release on Apple TV+.
The 1:28 snippet shows Holland’s character talking with an Army recruiter, which you can watch it below (the clip contains adult language).
“This guy had a face like death, and every other word out of his mouth was, ‘joker,’” his character explains. “I’ve just been seeing on the news that there are kids dying over there, you know? Guys from Cleveland, who are my age just trying to do something good, and here I am feeling sorry for myself because my girlfriend broke up with me.”
Back on Nov. 4, 2019, 3News saw Holland on the set of the film in Cleveland’s Gordon Square neighborhood. While most of the scene was filmed inside a Subway restaurant that afternoon, some of the action spilled out onto the street as Holland’s character was seen rushing out of the fast food joint and into a blue pickup truck before driving away – only to return to do it over and over again.
After his time in Cleveland for the movie, Holland became a fan of the city.
"I love Cleveland," Holland told Jimmy Kimmel while talking about Cherry. "I think Cleveland's great."
"Cleveland is an underrated city," Kimmel said. "For some reason, someone decided every time we make fun of a city in America, it's going to be Cleveland."
Cleveland natives, Joe and Anthony Russo, are the men behind the Cherry camera, which tells the story of an Army veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder who robs banks to dig himself out of debt caused by drug addiction, according to IMDB.
While the production was underway in the fall of 2019, Holland and Joe Russo spent one of their Saturday nights exploring a handful of Northeast Ohio haunted attractions, including Blood Prison at the Mansfield Reformatory and Ghoul Bros. in Akron.
