Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games” series) and Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones,” “Terminator: Genysis”) have ditched their fighting gear in favor of romance in the new trailer for “Me Before You.” The film is an adaptation of the novel by Jojo Moyes with the same name. “Me Before You” looks akin to what “The theory of Everything” might have been if it was just a romance film and goes a bit of the stereotypical route where the woman is the man’s caretaker and that’s when they fall in love.

The film also stars Jenna Coleman (“Doctor Who”) and Matthew Lewis (“Harry Potter” series) in supporting roles. “Me Before You” will make its way into theaters on June 3, 2016. The film is directed by Thea Sharrock with a screenplay by Moyes.

You can check out the first official trailer and synopsis below.

Synopsis: A small town girl is caught between dead-end jobs. A high-profile, successful man becomes wheelchair bound following an accident. The man decides his life is not worth living until the girl is hired for six months to be his new caretaker. Worlds apart and trapped together by circumstance, the two get off to a rocky start. But the girl becomes determined to prove to the man that life is worth living and as they embark on a series of adventures together, each finds their world changing in ways neither of them could begin to imagine.
