Preview, “Life Itself” bottles a little of that “This is Us” vibe for the big screen

There’s a reason the romantic conversations here have a wordy/moonstruck, up-the-romantic-stakes feel, even as the world they’re delivered in feels lived-in and real.

Dan Fogelman wrote and directed “Life Itself,” and this trailer plays like his more famous creation, “This is Us.”

An intimate epic about life and love, with laughter and tears and Olivia Wilde paired up with Oscar Isaac, Olivia Cooke, Antonio Banderas and Annette Bening in the cast, along with the Meanest Guy in Show Business, Mandy Patinkin, also on board.

Isn’t that Jean Smart as the mother of the groom? Don’t see her listed in the credits. Yet.

Did Samuel L. Jackson make the final cut? Sept 21, we find out.
