Life Itself Trailer Debut Image

Everyday Life Takes Center Stage in “Life Itself” Trailer

The trials and tribulations of everyday life make for some of the most remarkable stories.  Dan Fogelman, creator of NBC’s breakout hit “This Is Us,” focuses on that with his new film Life Itself.

Crossing generations and shifting through lifetimes, Life Itself follows a young New York couple as they transition from college romance to married family of three.  Unexpected twists and turns help to define their journey, creating a ripple effect that is felt by those near and far.

The story, as simple as it appears, offers a plethora of opportunities to dive deep into the normality of events that we call life.  The film’s debut trailer, complete with an assortment of plot teases, offers up a healthy amount of deep dialogue exchanges, one of which explains the many ways that life tricks us.  I’m not sure how all of it will connect, but I’m definitely intrigued to the point of wanting to know.

Boasting a spectacular ensemble including Oscar Isaac, Olvia Wilde, Antonio Banderas, Annette Being, Olivia Cooke, and Mandy Patinkin, Life Itself hits theaters on September 21. 


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
