We're not crying, we swear! We're just leaking salty wet stuff from our eyes as we watch the trailer for "Life Itself" on repeat.
Much like writer-director Dan Fogelman's hit NBC series "This Is Us," the romantic drama follows a love story stretching generations. But instead of Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore giving us a never-ending supply of the feels through their imperfectly perfect relationship, we'll be trying to control our emotions while watching Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde turn a friendship into a romance that becomes a marriage that becomes, well, we'll see what happens to these two. (If we can see through all of this wet stuff that keeps leaking.)
Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Antonio Banderas, Olivia Cooke, Mandy Patinkin and Laia Costa co-star in the drama that follows a young New York couple from college romance to the birth of their first child. According to the synopsis, the unexpected twists of their journey create reverberations that echo over continents and through lifetimes
The trailer is loaded with moments guaranteed to pull on your heartstrings, starting with Isaac asking his future wife out with the confidence all hopeless romantics wish they had.
"Abby, I'm waiting for the right moment, because when I ask you out, there's not going to be any turning back for me. I'm not going to date anybody else for the rest of my life, I'm not going to love anybody else for the rest of my life," Isaac says. "I'm waiting for the right moment because when I ask you out it's going to be the most important moment of my life and when I ask you out I just want to make sure I get it right."
While the trailer is mostly happy time for the couple, we're bracing for something terrible to happen, too. In fact, there's a quick glimpse of what appears to be a little girl in the back seat during a car accident and we can't shake the feeling it might take the life of her mother.
Ugh. Here comes that wet stuff again.
