First Trailer for Netflix's 'Irreplaceable You' Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Be prepared to cry. Netflix has debuted an official trailer for a romance film titled Irreplaceable You, the feature directorial debut of TV director Stephanie Laing. The very talented Gugu Mbatha-Raw stars along with Michiel Huisman as two lovers who have been together since childhood, knowing they'll spend their lives together. The plot is actually a very heavy tear-jerker, about Mbatha-Raw being diagnosed with cancer, and she tries to help him find another woman before she dies, hence the title about "irreplaceable you." The full cast includes Kate McKinnon, Claire Holt, Jacki Weaver, Christopher Walken, Steve Coogan, Gayle Rankin, and Jessie Ennis. There's some humor in this to help shake up the heavy emotions, but it still looks like a very sweet, very lovely film about life and love and how to make the most of it. Watch below.
Here's the first official trailer for Stephanie Laing's Irreplaceable You, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
Newly engaged Abbie (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Sam (Michiel Huisman) have been the love of each other’s lives since childhood.
