DreamWorks has released a new The Light Between Oceans trailer, which you can check out below! Starring Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Macbeth) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), The Light Between Oceans adapts M.L. Stedman‘s debut novel. First published in 2012 by Simon and Schuster, the novel is officially described as follows:

After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy.

When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

Directed by and featuring an adapted screenplay from Blue Valentine writer and director Derek Cianfrance, The Light Between Oceans is set to hit theaters September 2 through DreamWorks and Walt Disney Pictures.
