Watch: Two Love Stories in First ‘Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’ Trailer

The first official trailer for “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” will transport you to “someplace good,” as star Jessica Chastain puts it simply, before taking a turn for the worst.

This groundbreaking take on an age-old love story, which marks Ned Benson’s feature film debut, explores a rough patch in a young couple’s marriage told from different vantage points. “Everyone starts out thinking this is forever. But then things get hard,” the voiceover says amid scenes of laughter.

The two-part love story, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her,” premiered back-to-back at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movies were combined for an alternative version, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them” for the Cannes Film Festival.

Chastain and James McAvoy tell this story about “a girl who loves a boy” and “a boy who loves a girl.”

“The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them,” which costars Bill Hader, Viola Davis and William Hurt, hits theaters on Sept. 26. “Him” and “Her” will follow later in the fall.

    If your article is going to have the headline “Watch the trailer” then you might want to actually put the trailer in your article. Or a link to it? Just my two cents.

    Pretty smart roll out leading up to the Oscar and Globe nominations. Late Sept. release of “Them,” followed a few weeks later by ” Him,” and a few weeks after that “Her.”
