Last year’s Me Before You had to be the number one ‘chick flick’ (sorry, romantic drama) of the year despite the controversy of its subject. Warner Bros. are looking to up the romance stakes in Everything, Everything and lo and behold they have chosen Valentine’s Day to release its trailer… how cliché!
Everything, Everything sees The Hunger Games very own Amandla Stenberg as Maddy, a teenage girl kept in the confines of her own home because of an illness she has which means she cannot go outside. Along comes the boy next door in the form of Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) as Olly and without even officially meeting falls for his charming texts – well that’s what we can gather from the trailer.

Leslie Morgenstein and Elysa Dutton are producing under the Alloy Entertainment banner, with Victor Ho executive producing. Starring alongside Stenberg and Robinson are Ana de la Reguera (Sun Belt Express) and Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls)
Everything Everything Official Synopsis
What if you couldn’t touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face…or kiss the boy next door? “Everything, Everything” tells the unlikely love story of Maddy, a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly, the boy next door who won’t let that stop them.
Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together…even if it means losing everything.
