How I Live Now Trailer: Saoirse Ronan vs. WWIII

These days, everything seems to be all "post-apocalypse this," "post-apocalypse that," but what about the pre-apocalypse? (Though, in a way, all movies set in the present are pre-apocalypse movies.) Which brings us to How I Live Now, a film starring Saoirse Ronan as an American teen who goes to stay with British relatives right before World War III breaks out. The film is an adaptation of an acclaimed novel by Meg Rosoff and is directed by The Last King of Scotland's Kevin MacDonald. It will be released in the U.K. on October 18, with a U.S. date yet to be announced. Hopefully, we'll get it Stateside before the atomic-bomb-caused milk-rain starts to fall.
