    Colleen Hoover’s ‘It Ends With Us’ is about a couple who have a picture-perfect relationship that slowly turns into an abusive marriage as Lily deals with memories of her childhood love, Atlas, and an abusive husband in Ryle. Though many lauded the book as a sweet romance, it actually is about domestic violence and the breakage of the cycle. After the mega success of the first book, Colleen Hoover also released a sequel that centered on Atlas and Lily’s life. Though many called her out for the book being a cash grab, it did pretty well as Atlas and Lily’s love story became an internet phenomenon.

    The film is set to release in August this year. It was earlier supposed to be released in February and then June, but production issues pushed back the date twice.

    As for the cast, apart from Lively, Brandon, and Justin, Jenny Slater will be playing Ryle’s sister Allysa. In flashback scenes, Isabela Ferrer will play a younger Lily, and Alex Neustaedter will play a younger Atlas.
