Dan Fogelman has been making audiences cry all the time with his NBC family drama series This Is Us. Now he’s bringing that same level of tearjerking to the big screen with his sophomore directing effort.
Life Itself (not to be confused with the Roger Ebert documentary of the same name) stars Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Olivia Wilde (TRON Legacy) in a multi-generational love story that spans decades, not unlike This Is Us. But this one even spans across the globe with every story we see connected by a single event. And if the Life Itself trailer that debuted during the most recent episode of the aforementioned Emmy-nominated show is any indicator, Dan Fogelman will likely yank tears straight from your face.

It’s set in a gritty vision of the future in which robots are poised on the brink of evolution, and charts the intersection of the life of one man and a set of intelligent ‘bots. Watch the great Automata trailer below. Read More »
