Charming Trailer for Nick Cassavetes' My Sister's Keeper
New Line has debuted the trailer for the Nick Cassavetes drama My Sister's Keeper today over on Yahoo. This stars Cameron Diaz, Jason Patric, Abigail Breslin, Evan Ellingson, Sofia Vassilieva, and Alec Baldwin. The trailer is pretty straight forward and does a great job of explaining the story, so I don't think I need to say much. I will, however, say I was delightfully surprised. This is another one of those films, like Away We Go, that sort of came out of nowhere. I didn't even know it existed until today and its got quite an impressive cast. It looks like quite a heartwarming and simultaneously heartwrenching family drama.

This is based on Jodi Picoult's novel of the same name that was first published in 2004. New Line Cinema will be bringing My Sister's Keeper to theaters everywhere on June 26th.

About half the girls i know are obsessed with the book and by this trailer i can see why. It looks extremely depressing yet uplifting at the same time, but i think i'll pass.

WOW! That's going to be a an intense tear jerker.

I sobbed like a baby when I read the book. It was so good. I've been looking forward to this since I found out they were adapting it. Also, I'm pleasantly surprised by Diaz because at first I was really hesitant about her playing the mom but it looks like she nailed the role. I hope you post more about this one.

Cameron Diaz? Eh...Thats a big turn off. But it looks interesting, definitly one out to make people cry.

Normally, this isn't my "type" of movie. Then I saw the trailer. My eyes started to get watery. Now, I need to see it. And I think the cast is perfect. And I am glad that Cameron Diaz will play the mother. I think she's a better actress than Hollywood allows her to be.

for some reason, i'm sure the movie will surpass the book. the book was interesting... and was boring at the same time, most probably because of the narration. this looks good, the cast is awesome and the trailer has "vega 4" in it, so yes, i'll look forward to this

Ok, so I know if the trailer made me cry, seeing the actual movies is going to be a total tearfest for me and my husband. Can't wait to see it!
Lacey on Apr 18, 2009
might be too sappy, but I may give this a shot (just not in theaters).
Eric on Apr 20, 2009
i am with lacey i know me and the wife will be sobbing our hearts out in this

Beautiful trailer. *sniff* But I hope & pray that they changed the ending of the book for the movie. I don't know one person who felt satisfied with the ending. That's all I'm going to say.
Michelle on Jun 3, 2009
I thought the end of the book was very sad but in a way I did fnd it fullfilling. It just did not turn out the way you would think that it would. Not an altogether happy ending but not complete tragedy. Her death was not in vain. I actually loved the book. I cant wait to see Abigail portray Anna.
Lisa on Jun 11, 2009
The ending of the book was cheap and lazy - I hope they change it for the movie.
Maria on Jun 17, 2009
I agree 100% with Michelle and Maria. I felt totally ripped off at the ending. It was a complete cop-out on the author's part. This way, she didn't have to make any decisions on behalf of the characters that her readers just spent their time and energy becoming emotionally invested in. And if it wasn't an easy cop-out, than my only other guess is that Picoult suddenly had only 2 hours to finish it because how else could you possibly explain it?
Jules on Jun 17, 2009
I was sooo looking forward to watching this film after reading the tear jerking book! But now i've found out they've completly changed the ending! i hope it will still be fantastic, But i highly doubt that it'll compare to the book. What a shame.
