This trailer just breaks my heart, people.

Elvis Presley and Tupak Shakur have sold millions of albums posthumously. David Foster Wallace, who took a header into the afterlife late last year, even has a new novel coming out this year, culled from several drafts of a book he was working on, in addition to his notes and outlines. But this beats all, folks.

Joshua Jackson (R.I.P.), who has somehow managed to find more fame in the afterlife than when he was still with us, has a new movie coming out this spring called One Week. The kicker: It’s about a man who has a week to live, so he decides to travel cross country on a vintage motorcycle and, you know, discover life. It’s sad, really. Although, it’s also kind of poetic in a strange morbid way. I have no idea how much of this movie was made before Jackson passed, or how much needed to be completed with CGI effects and body doubles. But it makes a guy wonder. You think Jackson knew he was going to die soon when he decided to make this movie? Is this his posthumous love letter to us, his career, and to the great Here and Now?

I dunno. And although it doesn’t look like an exceptional movie, I suspect it will all resonate powerfully with all of us.

Be well, Joshua Jackson. Wherever you are.
