You'll Be Late Night Talking About Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine's The Idea of You Teaser




The Idea of You costars Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine prove their onscreen chemistry is heading in one direction in these heart-fluttering first look images of the movie.



Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine are watermelon sugar high.


The actors were pictured in a first look at their upcoming Prime Video movie The Idea of You, about mom Sophie (Hathaway) who takes her teen daughter to Coachella but ends up finding romance with boy bander Hayes Campbell (Galitzine) despite their 19-year age gap. 


In a new teaser released Dec. 21, a shirtless Galitzine was seen cradling Hathaway on lounge chairs. The Red, White & Royal Blue actor seemingly channeled Harry Styles with his artistic tattoos and shaggy hairstyle, while a smiling Hathaway looked relaxed in a denim top.


Another sign of the times? The pair were also photographed last year on the Georgia set of the movie, sharing a steamy kiss in the rain.

 

The Idea of You is based on the 2017 novel by Robinne Lee, in which Hathaway's character was originally called Solène.


"What begins as a series of clandestine trysts quickly evolves into a passionate and genuine relationship," reads the book's synopsis. "It is a journey that spans continents as Solène and Hayes navigate each other's worlds: from stadium tours to international art fairs to secluded hideaways in Paris and Miami."



But the budding couple faces challenges trying to keep their personal lives out of the spotlight. 



"When Solène and Hayes' romance becomes a viral sensation," the synopsis continues, "and both she and her daughter become the target of rabid fans and an insatiable media, Solène must face how her romantic life has impacted the lives of those she cares about most."


The movie is expected to hit Prime Video in 2024. 



In the meantime, see more books that have been brought to life on the screen.


Game of Thrones

This drama full of epic battles and star-crossed romance is based on the popular book series by George R.R Martin. While the novels are best-sellers in their own right, the TV show has garnered fans from all over the world, including many who wouldn't even call themselves fans of the source material. Over the course of eight seasons, the HBO series received 58 Emmy Awards, more than any other drama in history. And while viewers remain divided on the controversial conclusion, which saw the series surpass Martin's plotting to reveal an ending all its own, the show will go down as one of the most celebrated of all time.



The Handmaid's Tale

Premiering on Hulu in 2017, this adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian 1985 novel now has four seasons under its belt, with a fifth on the way. Centered in the totalitarian state of Gilead following a Second American Civil War, the series has long since left its source material behind as it continues the tale of June Osborne (Elisabeth Moss), the titular subjugated handmaid, and her quest for freedom. It's won several Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series in its first season.



Bridgerton

Netflix's adaptation of Julia Quinn's romance book series Bridgerton was a cultural phenomenon at the end of 2020. Why? Well, thanks to a diverse cast, an incredible score and some steamy sex scenes, subscribers to the streaming service couldn't get enough of the series. Bridgerton also received critical acclaim, earning an Outstanding Drama Series nomination at the 2021 Emmys.



Big Little Lies

HBO's adaptation of Liane Moriarty's best-selling novel of the same name lured some A-list talent to the small screen, with Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz and Laura Dern occupying the very enviable real estate owned by the five women who find themselves caught up in a murder investigation. Every bit as enthralling as the book, the first season earned eight Primetime Emmy Awards and enticed none other than Meryl Streep herself to sign on for a pivotal role in the second season, which Moriarty helped shape despite there being no source material left to mine. Though not as universally beloved as the first, season two still earned Streep and Dern Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nominations.
