Imaginary Friends (or IFs, if you will) are real! That’s the premise of a movie barreling toward theaters this Spring, and during the sports shenanigans this Sunday, we got a teaser trailer for it.
The movie, called IF, stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool and Wolverine, which also had a new trailer this weekend) and Cailey Fleming (Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
Here’s the official synopsis:
The trailer also reveals that when kids grow up, their imaginary friends have to find another kid to hang out with or… something bad happens? The premise is silly, but silly is far from a bad thing. It’s also a departure for Krasinski, who also acts in the film, whose previous writing and directing credits include A Quiet Place, which some may also call silly, I suppose, though that brand of silly is far different than what we see in IF.
In addition to Reynolds, Fleming, and Krasinski, IF stars Fiona Shaw and the voices of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr., Alan Kim, Liza Colón-Zayas, and Steve Carell. These actors voice some of the imaginary creatures we see in the teaser trailer, such as an anthropomorphic banana not wearing pants, a unicorn, and a giant gummy bears whose farts smell like… gummy bears, I think.
You can check out the teaser trailer below.
IF is set to imagine its way into theaters on May 17, 2024.
