“This fall, there’s no greater story than life itself,” this is the message conveyed in the trailer for the upcoming romance movie Life Itself.
From the creator of “This Is Us”, Dan Fogelman, who served as a writer and director, the film revolves around a couple played by Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde that, according to the official synopsis, “lead a multi generational love story spanning both decades and continents, from the streets of New York to the Spanish countryside, and are all connected by a single event.” The cast also includes Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas, Olivia Cooke, Mandy Patinkin, Samuel L. Jackson.
The trailer opens with the two protagonists at a college party, where he says he’s “just waiting for the right moment” to ask her out, justifying that, once he does that, “there’s not going to be any turning back” for him. “Strange to think about how a completely random moment would shape my entire life,” Isaac’s character is heard saying in one of the scenes, while a female voice talks about the love story between him and the woman of his dreams. “No one knows where their story is going, nor who the heroes in it are going to be,” “At any moment, life will surprise you,” are some of the lines included in the trailer, which is soundtracked by the debut single “The Funeral” by the American rock band Band of Horses, included on their 2006 debut studio album, “Everything All the Time”.
Life Itself is scheduled to be released this fall, on September 21.
