Watch the trailer: Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni star in film adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s ‘It Ends With Us’
The trailer has been released for the highly anticipated film adaptation of Colleen Hoover's hit novel 'It Ends with Us'.

Starring Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni as Lily and Ryle, the film depicts a romance that devolves into domestic violence.

The story follows Lily Bloom, who overcomes a traumatic childhood to embark on a new life in Boston and chase a lifelong dream of opening her own business.

A chance meeting with charming neurosurgeon Ryle Kincaid sparks an intense connection, but as the two fall deeply in love, Lily begins to see sides of Ryle that remind her of her parents’ relationship.

When Lily’s first love, Atlas Corrigan, suddenly reenters her life, her relationship with Ryle is upended, and Lily realises she must learn to rely on her own strength to make an impossible choice for her future.

Hoover confirmed the casting for the film in a social media post early last year.

“I think that Justin Baldoni and Blake Lively have what it takes to bring these characters to life and I cannot wait for you guys to see that happen,” Hoover said in an Instagram video announcing the news.

“I’m going to do my best to sneak y’all as much footage as I can without getting kicked off the set. I’m so excited, y’all.”

Returning to her childhood home to film the announcement, Hoover added, “The little girl who used to sleep in that bedroom thanks you for all the support.”

The author has previously shared that the book was inspired by her mum, who “got us out of a scary situation” when she was young.

Christy Hall, writer of ‘I am Not Okay with This’, adapted the script for screen, and Baldoni and Lively join Hoover as executive producers.
