We’re used to seeing Tom Holland as Spiderman, but it’s time to start adjusting our expectations, because Holland clearly doesn’t want to be remembered just for that one role.
Case in point: his performance on the film The Devil All The Time, a much darker, deeper character than what we’re used from Holland in the last few years, and a film that allows him to showcase his acting chops.
Now, we’ve known this kid was a great actor since The Impossible, so the fact that he gives a great performance should surprise no one. The care he put into the role should surprise no one who’s followed his career, either.
Below you can hear him talk about how he changed his accent for the movie, which will be available for streaming starting tomorrow.
Some people are just born to be buried.
In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring backwoods, sinister characters — an unholy preacher (Robert Pattinson), twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), and crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan) — converge around young Arvin Russell (Tom Holland) as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos’ THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted. Co-starring Bill Skarsgård, Mia Wasikowska, Harry Melling, Haley Bennett, and Pokey LaFarge, this suspenseful, finely-woven tale is adapted from Donald Ray Pollock’s award-winning novel.
The Devil All The Time will be available on Netflix tomorrow.
