If you don’t recognize the name Tom Holland, get ready to here pretty quick. The young actor gained huge worldwide recognition earlier this year when he debuted as the new, Marvel-ized version of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. And while we wait to see him suit up again as the teenage web-slinger, we’ll be seeing him in the very much non-blockbuster type Edge of Winter. Watch the first trailer for the snow-filled thriller below, which also stars Suicide Squad‘s Joel Kinnaman.
Having recently been divorced and laid off from his job, Kinnaman plays a desperate father looking for more time with his two sons, Bradley (Holland) and Caleb (Percy Hynes White). What starts out as a father-son “teach the boys to shoot” trip becomes a frozen nightmare when they become stranded at an isolated cabin. Although the movie is getting a very limited and straight to VOD release, I’m still very much looking forward to checking out. To me, Joel Kinnaman is a hidden gem who has had a solid career so far in the shadows (can’t wait to see him in Suicide Squad). And of course, there’s Tom Holland, the new Peter Parker. He was fantastic in The Impossible and very strong in last year’s In the Heart of the Sea. Those alone get me excited to see them team-up as father and son in a cold thriller.
Check out the new trailer below, and don’t forget to give us your thoughts in the comments! Rob Connolly’s Edge of Winter has a limited release on August 12th, 2016 and will be available on VOD July 26th, 2016.
