Warner Bros. has finally released the first trailer for director Greg Berlanti’s Life As We Know It. Starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel, the film is about two people that only have one thing in common: their dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter, Sophie. But when Sophie’s parents die, they’re forced to put their differences aside and take care of the one thing that really matters.
I actually saw the trailer back at ShoWest and was very surprised by how much I liked it. While the premise sounds a bit sketchy, the trailer has plenty of funny and touching moments. Also, even though I’m not a big Katherine Heigl fan, for some reason I liked her in this. I know they’ve done some test screenings of the film and the word on the street is the film is quite good. Judge for yourself after the jump:
