‘Me Before You’ Trailer Promises That We’re All Probably Going to Cry

Emilia Clarke has been working her way into a promising film career over the past few years since HBO’s Game of Thrones practically skyrocketed her into the public consciousness. Last year marked her first forray into the feature Hollywood blockbuster with Terminator: Genisys and well… we don’t need to talk about that.

Now though, Clarke is the lead in the latest romantic film of the summer called Me Before You, based off the novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes, and she stars opposite Sam Claflin, who was probably one of the strongest actors in The Hunger Games franchise.

Warner Bros. released the first official trailer for the film below, and it looks like a pretty typical romantic film in a lot of ways, but that might not necessarily be a bad thing. Check it out below:

Two handsome, talented movie stars? Check. The tear-jerking element of their relationship? Check. Culturally relevant love song in the trailer? Check.

Does this movie look very similar in terms of both story and structure to basically all of its genre predecessors? Definitely. But let’s be honest, I’m still probably going to see this, and I’m still probably going to get a little teary-eyed when the really sad thing inevitably happens. 500 Days of Summer screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber penned the film’s script alongside Moyes though, and they’re still some of the most reliable screenwriters in the industry right now, which makes me think Me Before You has more going for it than all the usual elements.

If not though, both Clarke and Claflin look like the definition of charming here, and their chemistry looks believable enough that their talent alone could warrant the price of admission.

Me Before You is set to hit theatres on June 3rd, 2016.
