THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR: “Time” TV Spot and “Fate” Featurette

Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton talk about the unique relationship between their characters in THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR!

There was a big movie event this weekend that’s got everyone talking, but it’s not the only movie on our radar!

YA lovers are also eagerly anticipating the release of The Sun Is Also A Star, based on the popular novel by Nicola Yoon. To get us even more hyped, there are new promos to enjoy!

The movie follows Natasha Kingsley (Yara Shahidi), a Jamaican immigrant who’s a day away from deportation, and Daniel Bae (Charles Melton), a first-generation Korean-American immigrant struggling between his parents expectations and his own dreams. When the two meet by chance, they can’t deny their connection, but the world isn’t about to stop for their love story. What can they do with the one day they have together?

The first new promo is a one-minute TV spot focuses on the one thing that Natasha and Daniel don’t really have: Time. As Daniel unknowingly dives into his mission to win over Natasha, a clock ticks in the background, signaling fast-approaching end to their adventure. Watch the TV spot at the top of the post.

Next up comes a featurette that introduces the characters and their personal dilemmas, as introduced by Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton.

It may not be an action-adventure tentpole event, but this adaptation is clever, romantic, and oozing with charm! We can’t wait to watch.

The Sun Is Also A Star hits theaters on May 17, 2019.
