As if the first heartwrenching trailer for the tragic drama If I Stay wasn't enough to pull at your heartstrings, a prologue trailer for the film has come along, seemingly inspired by some of the real text from Gayle Forman's book of the same name. Chloe Grace Moretz stars in the film as a girl stuck between life and death, weighing the option of letting go and dying with her parents, who have no hope of coming back, or staying behind in life with her younger brother and boyfriend Adam (Jamie Blackley). Her life flashes before her eyes as she struggles to decide whether she lives or dies. This looks just devastating. Watch now! Here's the new trailer for R.J. Cutler's adaptation of If I Stay from YouTube: If I Stay is directed by R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) from a script by Shauna Cross (Whip It), based »

It's amazing how I can write about a movie less than two months ago and completely forget it even exists a short time later. That's what happened with If I Stay, an upcoming drama starring Chloe Moretz from director R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) and writer Shauna Cross (Whip It, What to Expect When You're Expecting). The film hits theaters on August 22 and centers around a car accident that leaves 17-year-old Mia (Moretz) in a coma and kills the rest of her family. Along with Moretz, the film co-stars Mireille Enos, Liana Liberato, Jamie Blackley, Lauren Lee Smith, Joshua Leonard and Aisha Hinds. Now I'm still trying to get some more statistics to put something together, but it shouldn't come as any surprise when we forget about a movie or don't even know it exists in the first place. Did you know that in 1995 only 370 movies were released in theaters »

Exclusive: Director-producer R. J. Cutler has signed a first-look development deal with CBS Television Studios for scripted projects. The deal formalizes Cutler’s relationship with the studio where he has worked on several projects, including directing last season’s drama pilot The Ordained. “We’ve had such a great time developing material over the past couple of years that it just seemed a natural transition to make CBS Studios my scripted television home,” Cutler said. “Can’t wait to get started on creating a new series together.” Cutler most recently had a first-look deal at Lionsgate TV, where he executive produces the studio’s sophomore ABC drama Nashville (whose pilot he also directed). Cutler will continue as Ep on the series if it is renewed for a third season, as expected. The Oscar-nominated filmmaker (The War Room) and Emmy-winning television producer (American High) also has a first-look deal at Showtime for documentaries. »

If you’re still trying to recover from the emotional “Fault in Our Stars” trailer, a warning: Here comes another tearjerker.
The first trailer for “If I Stay,” starring Chloe Grace Moretz and based on the 2009 Gayle Forman bestseller, has debuted. The story follows Grace Moretz’s Mia character, a young cellist with big dreams who is on her way to Juilliard, who also has a loving family and an adoring guitarist boyfriend played by Jamie Blackley.
Mia’s biggest problem seems to be the rift between her personal and professional future until a devastating car accident kills both of her parents and leaves her in a coma in a sort of limbo state. In an out-of-body experience, she realizes she has to choose between living and fighting through the tragedy, or passing on.
The role is quite a shift for Grace Moretz, whose recent high-profile parts include playing a »

I don't have high expectations for If I Stay from director R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) and writer Shauna Cross (Whip It, What to Expect When You're Expecting). amz asin="B0020BUWX2" size="small"Last night the trailer was sent over with a note to be sure and credit Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema when mentioning the film, which centers around a car accident that leaves 17-year-old Mia (Chloe Moretz) in a coma and kills the rest of her family. Along with Moretz, the film co-stars Mireille Enos, Liana Liberato, Jamie Blackley, Lauren Lee Smith, Joshua Leonard and Aisha Hinds. Cross adapted the film from Gayle Forman's novel of the same name and it just looks to me like a bit of a sappy groaner, not exactly bad, but a story that would be far more emotional on the page. WB has set an August 22 release for the film, »

This summer, you won't have any shortage of young, hopeful, beautiful teenagers falling in love and then (possibly) dying. Shailene Woodley battles cancer and finds romance in "The Fault In Our Stars," and not to be outdone, Chloe Moretz will swoon before getting in a car crash in "If I Stay." And no, that's not a spoiler, that's the plot. Based on the book by Shauna Cross, the story follows Mia, a musically gifted 17-year-old girl who falls for a local punk rocker in Portland, and no this is not the premise of a skit on "Portlandia." She seems to have found "the one" when suddenly, a car accident puts her into a coma, the music swells, and she'll have to decide whether or not life is worth living, or if she should just leave this mortal coil. It's all a bit overwrought, but we're probably a couple decades too old for this anyway. »

Will she stay, or will she go? That’s the dilemma at the centre of the forthcoming romantic drama from director R.J Cutler (Nashville), If I Stay, based on the popular novel of the same name by Gayle Freeman, and adapted for the big screen by Shauna Cross (Whip It). But, what starts out as a decision about which direction in life to take, soon turns into a question of whether to take life at all.
Chloe Grace Moretz stars as Mia – a 17 year old caught at a crossroads between further education or a life with her boyfriend, Adam – played by Jamie Blackley (The Fifth Estate). Before she can reach that decision, however, a horrific collision on a relaxed drive rips her family from her and places her own life in the balance through serious injury. Unconscious, she revisits aspects of her life, while trying to make the ultimate life or death decision. »
