The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons stars in the emotional trailer of the upcoming movie Spoiler alert. Spoiler alert is based on the memoir of entertainment journalist Michael Ausiello. The book, titled Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Other Four-Letter Wordsdrives home the sadness behind the film’s title as it tells the story of Ausiello’s relationship with photographer Kit Cowan, beginning with their meeting, their life together and the final years of Cowan’s life when he battled cancer.
Spoiler alert stars Parsons as Ausiello, Ben Aldridge as Cowan and Sally Field as Cowan’s mother. The film is directed by Michael Showalter, and is even tonally reminiscent of The big sick, another true story the director tackled. Like The big sick, Spoiler alert wants to tell an emotionally charged story with a dose of humor, a balance between levity and tears.
Focus functions shared the trailer for Spoiler alert on YouTube, highlighting the tear-jerking stakes at the heart of the story. The trailer shows the audience the first meeting of Ausiello and Cowan before they embark on the uneasy and romantic courtship that led to their marriage, only for life to take the rug from under the couple when Cowan is diagnosed with cancer. As tears flow, the trailer helps to convey the importance of love and loss to the public.
