Irreplaceable You — Trailer


added: Fri, Feb 2nd '18

Netflix has released the trailer for "Irreplaceable You," a touching romantic dramedy that stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Concussion, Black Mirror: San Junipero) as a happily engaged woman who, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, has decided to seek out her replacement by picking out the perfect woman for her fiance to date and eventually marry. "Game of Thrones" alum Michiel Huisman co-stars as her fiance and childhood sweetheart.

Marking the feature directorial debut of Emmy Award-winning producer Stephanie Laing (Veep, Eastbound & Down, Vice Principals), the Netflix film also features an impressive supporting cast that includes Oscar-winner Christopher Walken, Emmy-winning SNL cast member Kate McKinnon, Steve Coogan (Philomena), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), and Tim Simons (Veep).

Written by actress-turned-first-time screenwriter Bess Wohl, "Irreplaceable You" is scheduled to premiere Friday, February 16th on Netflix.

IRREPLACEABLE YOU is the heartwarming, romantic story of Abbie (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Sam (Michiel Huisman), best friends since childhood who are engaged to be married, and whose tranquil New York lives come crashing down when Abbie receives an unexpected diagnosis. Faced with the prospect of an uncertain timeline, Abbie begins a touching and often humorous search for a new love to take care of Sam. Along the way, Abbie makes unlikely friendships with Myron (Christopher Walken), Kate (Kate McKinnon) and Mitch (Steve Coogan) whose one thing in common is that they focus on living, while they are dying. Ultimately, IRREPLACEABLE YOU asks the question, how do you say goodbye?
