A little late on this, but here ya go! Brace yourself for the feels (if you have yet to see it that is).
Chloe Grace Moretz is no stranger to kicking ass and burning down the prom. But for her next act, the young actress is attempting to bring you a new kind of heartbreak.
Moretz is the star of “If I Stay,” based on the young adult novel written by Gayle Forman. It centers on Mia, a young cellist with nothing but boundless opportunities on the horizon. She’s been accepted into Julliard. She’s falling in love with a guitarist named Adam. Her torn feelings between her professional and personal future are the greatest conflicts in her life.
And then comes the crash.
Mia’s world is turned upside down during a horrific car accident that kills her parents, and leaves Mia in a coma. She has an existential, out-of-body experience where she realizes she has a choice to make: stay alive and struggle through the extraordinarily difficult tragedy, or allow herself to pass on.
It’s a powerful, emotional conflict that plays to great tragic effect in this first, exclusive look at the “If I Stay” trailer. In addition to Moretz, the film stars “The Killing” veteran Mireille Enos as Mia’s mother, and relative newcomer Jamie Blackley as Mia’s boyfriend, Adam.
“The readers are very serious about me and Adam, and they really need that palpable relationship, and for me, I just want to go in there and create that relationship with Jamie,” Moretz told MTV News last October, ahead of production. “It’s that young love, and you have to capture that feeling.”
“If I Stay” hits theaters on August 22.
Chloe Moretz and Jamie Blackley dress up in their Halloween finest while filming a scene for If I Stay on Thursday (November 21) in Vancouver, Canada.
The 16-year-old actress and Jamie, 22, held hands as they knocked on a door for the scene.
“Could not be happier in my life than right now” Chloe tweeted earlier in the week.
The next day, Chloe wrote on her Twitter account about wanting the brand new PlayStation 4!
“i am in dire need of the new ps4 :’(” she wrote.

The first photos from the set of If I Stay, the Chloe Moretz-lead movie adaptation of Gayle Foreman’s best-selling novel, have hit the web.
Foreman herself posted the images on her official Tumblr, along with the captions:
HOT OFF THE PRESSES! #IfIStayMovie snaps!!!! Chloë Moretz (Mia), Jamie Blackley (Adam) and Jakob Davies (Teddy, sob) just hanging out. Josh Leonard (Denny) and Mireille Enos (Kat), in character. Adam’s band. The entire cast around the table for our first read (that’s Liana Liberato, aka Kim, in the glasses). My script! And my office!!!! I have an office.
If I Stay tells the story of Mia (Moretz), who must choose whether to live or die after she and her family are in a horrific car accident.
Moretz has been learning to play the cello for her role as Mia in the movie. If I Stay does not have a firm release date, but it’s expected to hit theaters sometime next year.
