Movie Preview: Gerard Butler, Hilary Swank in P.S. I Love You

Back when this movie was a part of my tearjerker movies Fall Movie Preview post, there was no trailer available, but I was looking forward to seeing what the tone of this movie would be. Now, judging from the newly released trailer, it looks a little sappy, but also cute and endearing — if you're in that kind of mood. Plus, I recently learned that Swank injured herself during a scene in which Gerard Butler is stripping, and somehow that makes me like the movie more.

Opening December 21, the movie is based on a novel and stars Hilary Swank as Holly, a young widow who discovers that her husband wrote out messages for her just before he died. Some of the notes include unusual requests, and before long, Holly and her girlfriends (played by Lisa Kudrow and Gina Gershon, pictured) are going on a string of adventures that Holly's late husband planned for her.

I think the best parts of the trailer feature Lisa Kudrow's character's ill-fated attempts to pick up men (well, those moments and Jeffrey Dean Morgan's extremely adorable smile are my favorite parts), but you can see what you think of the trailer yourself if you

I loved this movie. I love the fashion even more. I'm looking for that black trench coat Hillary is wearing in the picture above. Anyone have any idea who made it? I have googled my brains out for this coat.

This movie was originally a book written by Irish author Cecelia Ahern who is the daughter of an tAoiseach Bertie Aherne (Ireland's answer to a prime minister) she's very young and it's a huge deal for her that it got a movie deal. Well done!

I can't wait to see this movie. BTW: Gerard is Scottish, but he is of Irish decent.

looks like it'll be a good rainy-day movie. The costuming looks good and so does the scenery. I agree that a different leading lady would've been preferred, but she does look very cute in that hat/trench coat get-up!

Oh why did they have to pick her for the romantic lead, I can think of 10 other actresses (at least) who would have been perfect for this role! Despite that, I will definately see it for all the other characters.

I really want to see this movie, even though I'm not a huge fan of Hilary Swank. But I love Gerard Butler! Lisa Kudrow and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are good additions to the cast as well.

I agree that Hilary is the weak link. Ugh. But I'm going to watch it for Lisa and Jeffrey and Gerard and Harry and James.

I thought Gerard Butler was from Ireland? I can't tell his accent is that off.

Why is it that when a movie is based on a book, the writers seem to think it's ok to change characters and locations. There's no way I can watch this anyway - Gerard Butler's accent is TERRIBLE!!! :irk:

Ugh. Hilary should stick to being a man/tomboy/transgender in her movies. Somehow she doesn't scream "romantic lead" to me.
