John Krasinski and Paramount aren’t factual bringing sound-seeking aliens to the theater this year. In May, the actor is directing (and writing) his first kiddie film, the Ryan Reynolds-starring IF, which came to the Immense Bowl with a contemporary trailer on hand.

The upcoming film, cheekily launched right here by “Krasinski” himself—without a doubt no longer Randall Park—stars Cailey Fleming as Bea, a kid who realizes that she can look imaginary chums, a trait she also shares with her neighbor (Reynolds). As he explains it, there’s a total secret world of imaginary chums (or IFs), ranging from talking marshmallows on fireplace to extra conventional ones, adore a bear (voiced by Lou Gossett Jr.) or Steve Carrell’s ample, fluffy red man Blue. It eventually falls to the 2 humans to search out contemporary adolescents for IFs, since their original creators have all gotten older and forgotten or abandoned them.

It’s easy to imagine a film with this premise and cast comes collectively fairly well, fair?
