First Powerful Trailer for Adaptation 'If I Stay' Starring Chloe Moretz
"Life is this big, fat, gigantic, stinking mess, and that's the beauty of it, too…" Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for R.J. Cutler's If I Stay, an adaptation of Gayle Forman's novel of the same name about an aspiring musician who must overcome great tragedy and make an impossible decision. Chloe Moretz stars, along with Jamie Blackley as the boy, plus Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds and Stacy Keach This looks like a heartbreaker to compete with Fault in Our Stars, but, maybe by the end, a heartwarmer, too. The footage looks solid, nothing like The Lovely Bones thankfully. Take a look.
Here's the first trailer for R.J. Cutler's adaptation of If I Stay, direct from MTV's YouTube:
Synopsis for If I Stay, adapted from the novel by Gayle Forman. Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley). But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate. “If I Stay” is based on the best-selling novel of the same name. If I Stay is directed by R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) from a script by Shauna Cross (Whip It). Warner Bros releases August 22nd.

Never go with a romantic choice, especially if you're that young. You will always hold at least a kernel of resentment towards your partner that will eventually take root.

I'm not seeing enough similarity to Lovely Bones. However, I am seeing similarity to every other teen drama.
