After generating quite a bit of buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival this year, “All I See is You” released a new trailer. The latest video offers a small sampling of the story, hoping to entice fans before the film’s October 27th release.
The thriller stars Blake Lively, alongside Jason Clarke, Yvonne Strahovski, Danny Huston, Ahna O’Reilly and Wes Chatham. The new story shows the unraveling of a perfect marriage after a woman regains her sight.
Gina (Blake Lively) and husband James (Jason Clarke) have an almost perfect marriage. After being blinded as a child in a nearly fatal car crash that claimed her parent’s lives, Gina depends on James to be her eyes-a dependence that appears to solidify their passionate relationship. She sees her world in her own vivid imagination with help from James’ descriptions.
Despite her disability, the two enjoy a colorful existence in Bangkok, Thailand where James works in insurance and Gina explores life in a foreign country. It seems the only real hardship this loving couple faces is difficulty conceiving a child but when Gina is given the opportunity to have a corneal transplant and regains her vision, their life and relationship are upended. Gina now sees the world with a new sense of wonder and independence which James finds threatening. It is only when Gina suddenly begins to lose her sight again that she finally realizes the disturbing reality of their marriage and their lives.
The film was directed by Marc Forster, working from a script that he wrote with Sean Conway. The project was produced by Craig Baumgarten, Michael Selby Marc Forster, and Jillian Kugler.
This is Lively’s follow up to the thriller “The Shallows” which released in 2016. The shark-thriller was a modest hit with fans of the genre, opening at #4 with $16.8M. We say modest in comparison to that weekend, which also featured “Finding Dory” and “Independence Day: Resurgence”. With almost $17M in just one-weekend, “The Shallows” is a blockbuster compared to “mother!’ which opened this past weekend to just $7.5M in almost the same number of locations.
