The first trailer for director Kevin Macdonald’s (The Last King of Scotland) new film How I Live Now has landed online.  Based on the Meg Rosoff novel of the same name, the film takes place in the near future and stars Saoirse Ronan as Daisy, a teenage girl from New York City who travels to England in order to spend the summer with relatives.  She strikes up a romance with another handsome young man (George MacKay), but when World War III suddenly breaks out, Daisy’s small group finds itself struggling to survive in a world full of chaos.  It’s a truly fascinating setup, and Macdonald looks to have found a refreshingly grounded way to tell the story.  This sort of realistic sci-fi is far too rare, and I’m very much looking forward to catching the full film.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Tom Holland and Anna ChancellorHow I Live Now opens in the UK on October 3rd, but doesn’t yet have a US release date.

Check out the first trailer for How I Live Now below:

Here’s the official synopsis for How I Live Now:

Set in the near-future UK, Ronan plays Daisy, an American teenager sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside. Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay). But on the fringes of their idyllic summer days are tense news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. As the UK falls into a violent, chaotic military state, Daisy finds herself hiding and fighting to survive.
