The first trailer is here for This is Us creator Dan Fogelman’s forthcoming romantic drama Life Itself.
Starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening, Olivia Cooke, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Laia Costa, Alex Monner and Mandy Patinkin, Life Itself is an exploration of everyday life.
As a young New York couple goes from college romance to marriage and the birth of their first child, the unexpected twists of their journey create reverberations that echo over continents and through lifetimes in Life Itself.
A multigenerational saga, Life Itself should appeal to This is Us fans. The trailer suggests a similar look-and-feel so we’d say you’d best prepare by stocking up on tissues as we have a feeling you’ll be bawling your eyes out by the time the credits roll.
Fogelman directs and wrote the screenplay. Life Itself is produced by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
As well as This is Us, Fogelman was the writer behind Cars 2, Crazy, Stupid, Love and TV’s Galavant and Grandfathered.
Life Itself will arrive in cinemas in January 2019.
