Final IF Trailer Has Ryan Reynolds Trying To Reconnect Kids With Imaginary Friends

IF - Ryan Reynolds

We've already had one movie this year about an imaginary friend turning out to be not so fictional, and causing chaos in Blumhouse's Imaginary. That didn't exactly impress, so would it have been better if Ryan Reynolds had shown up to announce he was tasting gummy bear farts with his eyeballs? Maybe… but it probably wouldn't have seemed as scary. Still, writer/director John Krasinski is more going for family friendly fun with IF, and the final trailer does indeed feature candy fart/eyeball action. Check it out:

IF is based on a simple and, as Krasinski has already admitted, Pixar-style idea: a girl (Cailey Fleming) discovers that she can see everyone’s imaginary friends. Trying to figure what she can do with this ability leads her to Reynolds' Cal, whose task it is to reunite forgotten IFs with their kids — or find them new ones.

The cast for this one includes Krasinski and Fiona Shaw, with a voice cast crammed with the celeb likes of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett, Jr., Steve Carell, Emily Blunt, Jon Stewart, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Meloni, Richard Jenkins and many more.

Hoping to snatch up the kiddie market and help kick off summer movie season, IF will be in cinemas from 17 May.
