For many of us who’ve managed to find that “special someone,” the thought of ever losing them can bring about all manner of nightmarish visions. Sadly, human beings are fragile, and regardless of how intensely we war against Death’s inevitable touch, we all return to whence we came in the end. Wow. Doom and gloom much, Steve? Hey, I can’t help it if the new trailer for Universal Pictures’ ALL MY LIFE has sent me down a dark, introspective path. What else do you expect from a carefree trailer that, part of the way through, transforms into another thing entirely? Something that makes you think about mortality, the love you cherish, and how a primary goal in life should be to live every day likes it’s your last. Yeah, so maybe cut me a bit of slack, eh?
Based on the powerful true love story that inspired an entire nation, ALL MY LIFE follows the journey of an engaged couple who make the difficult decision to accelerate their wedding in the wake of a devastating discovery.
Jennifer Carter (Jessica Rothe, the Happy Death Day films) and Solomon Chau (Harry Shum Jr, Crazy Rich Asians) are a sweet, fun-loving, newly engaged couple whose whole life seems ahead of them. But when Sol is diagnosed with terminal liver cancer in December, their plans for a summer wedding become impossible. In a race against time, Jenn and Sol’s friends and family launch an online fundraiser to help the couple create their dream wedding in just two weeks. In the process, they unleash an outpouring of generosity and attention from people around the world who want to celebrate the power of love with them. Through it all, Jenn and Sol’s commitment to each other only deepens, becoming a heartwarming reminder that the strength of true love knows no limits.
All My Life is directed by Marc Meyers (My Friend Dahmer, Human Capital) from an original screenplay by Todd Rosenberg. The film is produced by Todd Garner and Sean Robins, producers of Tag and Playing with Fire, for Broken Road Productions, and is executive produced by Robin Mulcahy Fisichella and Gina Matthews.
In addition to today’s trailer for what looks to be one hell of a tear-jerker, Universal also debuted a new poster for the film, which you can check out below.
ALL MY LIFE is set to make people sob their faces off in theaters beginning on December 4th.
