In It Ends With Us, Blake Lively stars as Lily Bloom, a flame-haired heroine with a past as colourful as her hair.

The film follows Lily's journey from a traumatic childhood to her ambitious new life in Boston, where she dreams of opening her own business.

It's a classic underdog story with a twist, and Lively brings her A-game, making sure that fans of the book and the actress are in for a treat.

The trailer has already sparked a frenzy among fans.

One enthusiastic viewer commented: "I've watched this 5 times already and it's perfect!!!!!!!"

Another fan added: "I'm ready now!!! This is going to be epic. I feel like I've been waiting a lifetime for this. So excited!"

With reactions like these, it’s clear that Lively’s portrayal of Lily Bloom is striking a chord.

The movie's plot thickens with the introduction of Ryle Kincaid, played by Justin Baldoni.

Ryle is a charming neurosurgeon who sweeps Lily off her feet, but as their relationship deepens, darker elements reminiscent of Lily's past begin to surface.

Enter Brandon Sklenar as Atlas Corrigan, Lily’s first love, who reappears and turns her world upside down. It's a love triangle that promises to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Filming began in New Jersey in May 2023, and while the production has been a hot topic of conversation, not all the chatter has been positive.

Early images of Blake Lively in character sparked some backlash regarding Lily's wardrobe.

Fans took to social media to voice their disappointment, labelling the outfits as 'frumpy' and unrepresentative of the beloved protagonist.

However, author Colleen Hoover was quick to quell the controversy.

Speaking to Jenna Bush Hager on Today, she emphasised that the essence of the story lies in the dialogue and relationships, not the clothing.

"I don't remember describing outfits at all. I don't care what they have on," Hoover said.

"In my head, it's about the conversation they're having and the story. It's the same way in the movie."

Directed by Justin Baldoni, who also stars in the film, It Ends With Us is shaping up to be a poignant and powerful exploration of love, strength, and resilience. For fans of Blake Lively, this film marks another exciting chapter in her illustrious career.

From her breakout role in Gossip Girl to her recent success in A Simple Favor, Lively continues to captivate audiences with her versatile performances.

So, mark your calendars for August 9, because Blake Lively is ready to take us on an unforgettable journey with It Ends With Us.

Whether you're a die-hard fan of the book or just looking for a compelling story to dive into, this film promises to deliver.

Get ready for a tale of love, heartbreak, and personal triumph that will have you cheering for Lily Bloom every step of the way.
