Not all love stories have happy endings. It Ends with Us puts love to the test, and we get a glimpse of that in the first trailer for the movie.

Pushed back to an Aug. 9 release date, It Ends with Us stars Blake Lively as Lily. She moves to Boston and opens her own flower shop. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with her friend’s brother. However, Ryle may be handsome on the outside but he has some dark secrets.

This is the first of Colleen Hoover’s books to be adapted into a movie. There is a sequel novel It Starts with Us that we’re excited to see as well, but everyone will want to see how this release performs in theaters first.

What is It Ends with Us about?

Lily has handled a lifetime of childhood trauma. Way more than anyone should have to handle. It seems like she’s come out the other side, as she escapes her life and moves to Boston to open her own flower shop. Her first customer is her friend’s brother, Ryle Kincaid, a brilliant and charming neurosurgeon.

Sparks fly between them, and there is an instant connection. However, it takes just 15 seconds for it all to change. The deeper the two fall in love, the more their relationship becomes like Lily’s parents, and that’s not something she wants.

When her first love, Atlas Corrigan, reenters her life, she starts to see that things aren’t right with Ryle. That’s especially the case as he lashes out more and distrusts Lily with Atlas. Now Lily has to make a choice: will she allow the pattern to break her, or will she break the pattern?

Who stars in It Ends with Us?

Blake Lively takes on the role of Lily, a young woman who is trying to figure out life after her father’s death. She embarks on a relationship that reminds her a lot of her parents’ one, and not in a good way.

Justin Baldoni is Ryle, the charming neurosurgeon who lashes out at the smallest things. He’s not a good man, but Lily looks past all that for a relationship with him. The question is whether the cycle of abuse is going to continue.

Brandon Sklenar plays Atlas, Lily’s first love. He moves to Boston and is surprised that Lily is there. He suspects that Ryle is abusive, but Lily doesn’t want to open up to him. Can he encourage her to get out, even if it’s not to be with him?

The movie also stars:

Jenny Slate as Allysa
Alex Neustaedter as Young Atlas
Isabela Ferrer as Young Lily
Amy Morton as Jenny
Hasan Minhaj as Marshall
