First Look at Tom Holland's The Devil All The Time

Netflix has released their first look at star-studded drama, The Devil All The Time. The huge and talented cast includes the likes of Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Sebastian Stan, Bill Skarsgård, Riley Keough, Mia Wasikowska, Jason Clarke, Haley Bennet, Harry Melling and Eliza Scanlen.

The film is based on the debut book of the same name by author Donald Ray Pollock, released back in 2011. Director Antonio Campos describes the film as:

“A multi-strand narrative set between the end of World War II and the beginning of America’s involvement in Vietnam in which a motley group of characters’ lives all intersect.”

He also talks about Tom Holland’s part in the film:

“Tom is a very sweet person and a very generous actor but he’s willing to go wherever he needs to go emotionally for the character. He wanted to go where he had to go. Tom’s electric. He’s sort of sitting there doing nothing and is immensely watchable.”

Holland plays the lead role Arvin Russell, a rather troubled young man. Holland talks about his time working on the film and with Campos:

“I was really eager to work with Antonio because his previous films that I’ve seen are very raw. I guess it was the challenge of doing a different accent, playing the rural kid, a period film, a new director. Everything ticked the boxes for me.”

Robert Pattinson adds further weight to the cast, as he plays the role of Preston Teagardin, a preacher. Campos describes his experience with Pattinson:

“Rob prepared a bunch of ideas and you don’t know what you’re going to get but it’s all interesting. The character coming to life — I saw that in front of me when we were on set.”

As well as directing, Campos took on the screenplay with his brother, Paulo.

“It was a hard book to adapt also because there was so much that we loved. I’m a big fan of southern gothic and noir and this was a perfect marriage of the two. Sometimes you might be adapting a piece and you think like, Well, there is a seed of a good idea here and I’ll just throw everything away and start from scratch. In this case it was like, we love everything!”
