It isn't long until Warner Bros.' #youngadult tearjerker Everything, Everything hits theaters, but that didn't stop them from releasing both a brand new trailer and a poster to get us excited.
Based on the novel by Nicola Yoon, the film is directed by Stella Meghie and stars #HungerGames actress Amandla Stenberg and #JurassicWorld's Nick Robinson. Stenberg portrays 18-year-old Maddie Whittier, who has severe combined immunodeficiency — and as a result is unable to leave her home. However, that all changes when she meets her new neighbor Olly Bright.
Check out the brand new trailer below:
One Perfect Day
Carrying on from what we saw in the first trailer, we are once again introduced to Maddie, who reminds us of her condition as we watch her fall hopelessly in love with Olly. But this time, we're given a little more backstory — including scenes in which Olly questions why she's "under house arrest." We also get to see Maddie's mom inform her that even though Olly sounds lovely, she can't see him.
That kickstarts the overall theme of this trailer, which revolves around Maddie's desire to live at least "one perfect day" — and she sees Olly as her way of accomplishing that. We see some of the adventures they get up to when Maddie runs away from home to experience "everything, everything" that life has to offer.
From the new footage, we see that the two jet off on an impromptu holiday and go swimsuit shopping before heading out to the beach to accomplish Maddie's ultimate dream of seeing the ocean.
The trailer highlights the lengths Maddie will go to in order to live one perfect day, and perhaps more importantly the risks she's willing to take. But as it also shows us the dangers of her condition, we have to wonder if she will survive to enjoy her newfound freedom.

With superhero films dominating the box office this year, the release of Everything, Everything will bring the Young Adult genre back to the forefront. And with previous YA films If I Stay, The Fault In Our Stars and Me Before You all doing incredibly well over the summer, we should expect big things for Everything, Everything.
Everything, Everything hits theaters on May 19, 2017.
