“How am I supposed to decide this?” That’s the question that torments young Mia (Chloe Grace Moretz) through the entirety of If I Stay, the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Gayle Forman’s YA hit.

If I Stay follows Mia, a 17-year-old cellist who finds herself in a coma after a car accident that killed the rest of her family. The story then takes the audience through Mia’s memories and experiences as she tries to make the decision to either wake up or to die.

In a new preview video for the film, we get an in-depth look at Mia’s decision and some of the key memories that help her make it. Let’s just say that if the book made you cry, you might want to have a tissue nearby for this sneak-peek as well. After all, Moretz did tell EW that her goal with this film was to make the audience feel. “You want to watch something that actually means something and makes you feel and makes you want to be involved,” Moretz said. “That’s what I wanted to make and that’s what I strive to make.”

'If I Stay' trailer: Chloe Grace Moretz makes a tough choice

Move over, superheroes. Summer 2014 may just be the summer we all cry through our favorite YA adaptations.

Sobfest The Fault in Our Stars will be released in June, and now, the first trailer for the also-anticipated YA smash novel If I Stay is here. The film follows Mia (Chloë Grace Moretz), a teenage cellist, while she’s in a coma following a horrible car accident that’s killed the rest of her family. The novel takes the unconscious Mia on a journey through her memories as she tries to decide whether to die — or to stay.

“It’s much darker than I think most YA is,” Moretz told EW. “I want people to walk in and feel like they actually felt something, and learned something, and realized something different about life that’s more than just, ‘Oh, I saw this love triangle and it’s super sad because she chose the guy I didn’t like. And then the movie was over.’ And you’re like, ‘Okay, that’s pathetic.’ You want to watch something that actually means something and makes you feel and makes you want to be involved. That’s what I wanted to make and that’s what I strive to make.”

Box office report: 'Gravity' scores third weekend win with $31 million; 'Carrie' and 'Escape Plan' both underwhelm

Gravity.jpg

There’s no force strong enough to pull Warner Bros.’ $100 million smash Gravity back down to Earth. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, easily maintained its perch atop the box office in its third weekend, dropping just 28 percent to $31 million — good for a $170.6 million total after just 17 days.

Gravity is already the tenth highest-grossing film of 2013 in the U.S. (it surpassed Bullock’s other vehicle, The Heat, this weekend), and appears to be headed for a finish of at least $250 million, which would put it ahead of director Alfonso Cuaron’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which grossed $249.5 million in 2004. Worldwide, Gravity has already earned $284.8 million.

Sony’s $55 million Tom Hanks drama Captain Phillips spent a second week in second place, dipping 33 percent to $17.3 million for a $53.3 million total after ten days. The well-reviewed film is playing well ahead of Argo, which had earned $43 million at the same point in its run last year en route to a $136 million finish. Captain Phillips will need some major awards attention in the following months to reach those heights, but thanks to great word-of-mouth, it should reach (or get close to) $100 million domestically.

Box office update: 'Gravity' stays on top with $9.1 million, 'Carrie' off to disappointing start

Gravity-Trailer.jpg

Gravity can not be stopped — not by a telekinetic teenager, not by a WikiLeaks hacker, not even by the hulking threat of Arnold Schwarznegger and Sylvester Stallone.

Warner Bros.’ $100 million drama starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney drew another $9.1 million on Friday, marking a scant 28 percent drop from last Friday. Gravity may pull in about $32 million over the weekend, which would bring its total to an incredible $171 million after just 17 days.

In second place, Screen Gems and MGM’s $30 million horror remake Carrie stumbled out of the gate with $6.6 million. Since horror movies are typically quite frontloaded, the film will likely finish the frame with about $16 million — well below predictions that had the film earning at least $20 million.

Captain Phillips finished in third place with $5.2 million, but it may surpass Carrie by Sunday night and finish the weekend in second place with about $17 million. Sony’s $55 million Tom Hanks drama will have accrued about $53 million after ten days.

Summit’s Stallone/Schwarznegger action entry, Escape Plan, which cost a reported $70 million to produce, only locked up $3.6 million on its opening day. The prison-escape movie could earn only $9.5 million in its opening weekend — joining the ranks of the stars’ recent flops Bullet to the Head and The Last Stand.

At least Escape Plan fared better than Benedict Cumberbatch’s WikiLeaks drama The Fifth Estate, which earned an anemic $587,000 from 1,769 theaters, yielding an awful $332 daily per theater average. The film may earn about $1.5 million total over the weekend. Ouch.

1. Gravity – $9.1 million
2. Carrie – $6.6 million
3. Captain Phillips – $5.2 million
4. Escape Plan – $3.6 million
5. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 – $2.6 million
