‘It Ends With Us’ Trailer: First Look At Blake Lively-Justin Baldoni Romantic Drama

Sony Pictures has dropped the first trailer for It Ends With Us, the troubled-romance film starring Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni, based on the bestseller by Colleen Hoover.

The film, from Columbia Pictures and Wayfarer Studios, was originally slated for a February release but that was delayed when production shut down due to the WGA strike. A subsequent June 21 release was pushed back to a current debut of August 9.

The trailer, set to Taylor Swift’s “My Tears Ricochet,” neatly sets up the plot. Official synopsis: “It Ends With Us, the first Colleen Hoover novel adapted for the big screen, tells the compelling story of Lily Bloom (Blake Lively), a woman who overcomes a traumatic childhood to embark on a new life in Boston and chase a lifelong dream of opening her own business. A chance meeting with charming neurosurgeon Ryle Kincaid (Justin Baldoni) sparks an intense connection, but as the two fall deeply in love, Lily begins to see sides of Ryle that remind her of her parents’ relationship. When Lily’s first love, Atlas Corrigan (Brandon Sklenar), suddenly reenters her life, her relationship with Ryle is upended, and Lily realizes she must learn to rely on her own strength to make an impossible choice for her future.”

The film is directed by Baldoni and produced by Alex Saks, Jamey Heath, and Christy Hall, and executive produced by Steve Sarowitz, Justin Baldoni, Andrew Calof, Blake Lively, Andrea Ajemian and Colleen Hoover. In addition to Lively, Baldoni and Sklenar, It Ends With Us features Jenny Slate, Hasan Minhaj and Amy Morton. Screenplay is by Christy Hall, based on the book by Hoover.
