The Crowded Room is Tom Holland‘s new project with Apple TV+, where he made the movie Cherry, about a war veteran who becomes a criminal to try to escape his past.
But this is not a movie; rather, it is the first project in series format in which the actor who plays Spider-Man in the MCU movies stars and also produces. This is a miniseries that also has the production of Akiva Goldsman, who previously worked on films like A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man with actor Russell Crowe.
According to the Apple TV+ statement, Tom Holland will be accompanied by a great cast in this project that will have 10 chapters and tell the story of a man who was involved in a shooting and who gradually reveals the story that got him to that point.

The Crowded Room Trailer
The first trailer shows Seyfried interviewing Tom Holland, who claims to have had some blackouts about the events that landed him in prison. Danny (Holland) decides to tell her his story and share the events that led him to meet a stranger, who became the root of his problems and is connected to a shooting and a disappearance.
Is Danny a serial killer, or is there something else going on? That is what Seyfried’s character seeks to discover.
In addition, a few weeks ago, Apple shared the first images where we can see the characters of Tom Holland, Amanda Seyfried, and Emmy Rossum, where we can see the character stopped and being interviewed by Sefried, while Rossum seems to be part of the past that is going to be explored through these interviews.
