Two weeks ago we shared an official trailer for Kevin Macdonald‘s doomsday thriller How I Live Now, which is set to hit theaters this November. Now, we’re back to add another poster and 20 new images with lovely Saoirse Ronan, aka an American girl on holiday in the English countryside who finds herself in hiding and fighting for her survival as the third world war breaks out. Definitely sounds (and looks) promising, give it a look…
Based on the 2004 novel of same name by Meg Rosoff, the movie is set in the near-future UK, and follows Ronan’s character – an American teenager named Daisy, who is sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside.
She soon immerses herself in a dreamy pastoral idyll as she falls madly in love with Eddie, played by George MacKay, until their perfect summer is blown apart by the sudden outbreak of a 21st-century world war.
And here’s the rest of the story:
Along with Eddie’s younger siblings, they are left in isolation and forced to fend for themselves. When they are violently separated Daisy must embark on a terrifying journey in order to be reunited with the boy she loves. Eddie is never far from Daisy’s mind but as her journey to find him becomes more desperate, the idea of what she may or may not find consumes her consciousness and haunts her soul.
Beside Ronan and MacKay, the rest of How I Live Now cast includes Tom Holland, Anna Chancellor and Corey Johnson, and as we said – the movie is set to open on November 8th, 2013.
As usual – click on all these pics to enlarge & stay tuned for more updates!
