Today in our second part of EMExclusives, we have two of the young stars from the movie. Ladies and gents, I bring to you Elsie Fisher who plays Kayla Day, an eighth grader in her final week of middle school and Emily Robinson who plays Olivia, a high school senior who Kayla shadows for one day.

Time And All That Trailer: A Ghost Story!

With A Ghost Story, acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies SaintsPete’s Dragon) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away.

Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence.

A Ghost Story opens on July 17th.

Seriously.

Paul Dano (Love & Mercy) plays the castaway and Daniel Radcliffe (Horns) is the corpse (insert acting joke here…). Check out the hysterical trailer after the break. Swiss Army Man opens on July 1st.
