A romantic comedy about a military contractor, his ex and the Air Force watchdog assigned to keep him out of trouble? Nope, it’s not based on a Nicholas Sparks novel (though it does star a few alumni of Sparks-based movies).

Aloha was written and directed by Cameron Crowe. The cast includes Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone, Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray and John Krasinski. Check out the trailer after the jump – it looks like it deserves its A-list cast.

The official announcement came down from Disney this morning. The hybrid live-action/animated Disney’s The Jungle Book will premiere on October 9, 2015.
