The Sun Is Also a Star Trailer

"What if I told you I could get you to fall in love with me…?" Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for a romantic drama titled The Sun Is Also a Star, the latest from director Ry Russo-Young (Nobody Walks, Before I Fall). Adapted from the novel of the same name, the film is about a young woman who falls for a sweet-talking charmer on the day before she is to be deported back to her native country of Jamaica. Set in New York City, Yara Shahidi (from "Black-ish" and "Grown-ish") stars as Natasha, and Charles Melton as Daniel Bae, the guy who woos her. Also starring John Leguizamo, Hill Harper, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Camrus Johnson, Jake Choi, Keong Sim, and Cathy Shim. This looks like a gorgeous film, and I dig all the nerdy science and space talk in this. Might just be a winner based on the footage in here. Take a look.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Ry Russo-Young's The Sun Is Also a Star, direct from YouTube:

College-bound romantic Daniel Bae and Jamaica-born pragmatist Natasha Kingsley meet—and fall for each other—over one magical day amidst the fervor and flurry of New York City. Sparks immediately fly between these two strangers, who might never have met had fate not given them a little push. But will fate be enough to take these teens from star-crossed to lucky in love? With just hours left on the clock in what looks to be her last day in the U.S., Natasha is fighting against her family’s deportation as fiercely as she’s fighting her budding feelings for Daniel, who is working just as hard to convince her they are destined to be together. The Sun Is Also a Star is directed by American filmmaker Ry Russo-Young, director of the films Orphans, You Wont Miss Me, Nobody Walks, Before I Fall, and Nightlife previously. The screenplay is written by Tracy Oliver; it's adapted from Nicola Yoon's novel of the same name. Warner Bros will release Ry Russo-Young's The Sun Is Also a Star in theaters everywhere starting May 17th this summer. Curious?

"13.8 Billion years ago the Big Bang created the universe..." Sure, but WHAT created the Big Bang? lol The kids are going to love this. Not my bag.

Wrong question. Universe was not created...

It wasn't? Do explain...

First, I have to correct myself. Not only universe, but nothing that exists has been created. However, I remain with the question(s) since I think it's the only important issue. People usually maintain with questions about the beginnings (whether God or Gods, the Big Bang, atoms and molecules or whatever) and it was ancient Greeks that made some serious effort to think that good and through. Of course, they combined traditions that also influenced them, but they also connected the dots between religion (not faith in Christian manner), mythology and knowledge. And realized that questions about the beginning is a flawed one. Unfortunately, humanity is still not moving very much forward in that sense ...

So what you're saying is that the universe and everything in it has always been? Constant existence? It just IS? What about birth, life and growth from a seed etc?

Well, I don't say that we don't know anything, but only that we stop at those points about which we don't know enough and give them beginnings. We do it without knowing better... As for the universe, it's again the problem of the beginning, of the time, I guess. How far back in time did you, or anyone for that matter, come to ascertain what's the story of the universe?

Interesting. So how can we determine a beginning when none of us were even there to know what occurred. Makes sense.

Same game, new players.
