The Sun is Also a Star trailer debuts
The first trailer for the star-crossed romance, The Sun is Also a Star is here, which offers compelling arguments for the starry-eyed romantic and the sane, sensible realist alike. You can check out the trailer in the player below!
College-bound romantic Daniel Bae and Jamaica-born pragmatist Natasha Kingsley meet—and fall for each other—over one magical day amidst the fervor and flurry of New York City. Sparks immediately fly between these two strangers, who might never have met had fate not given them a little push. But will fate be enough to take these teens from star-crossed to lucky in love? With just hours left on the clock in what looks to be her last day in the U.S., Natasha is fighting against her family’s deportation as fiercely as she’s fighting her budding feelings for Daniel, who is working just as hard to convince her they are destined to be together.
A modern-day story about finding love against all odds, The Sun Is Also a Star explores whether our lives are determined by fate or the random events of the universe. The film stars Yara Shahidi (Black-ish) as Natasha and Charles Melton (Riverdale) as Daniel.
Directed by Ry Russo-Young (Before I Fall), the film is based on the acclaimed bestseller by Everything, Everything author Nicola Yoon from a screenplay by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip). The film’s producers are Elysa Koplovitz Dutton and Leslie Morgenstein, who served as producers on Everything, Everything. Tracy Oliver and Pamela Hirsch serve as executive producers.
An Alloy Entertainment production, Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures’ The Sun Is Also a Star is due in theaters May 17.
