During the season finale of This Is Us, you might have spotted the trailer for the new movie from the show’s creator. Writer/director Dan Fogelman wrangled an all-star cast that includes Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Mandy Patinkin, Olivia Cooke, Laia Costa, with Annette Bening and Antonio Banderas for Life Itself.

Life Itself will hit theaters on September 21st.
