Director John Krasinski has a wealth of Hollywood heavyweights among his cast that includes wife Emily Blunt, former The Office co-star Steve Carell as well as, of course Ryan Reynolds, Matt Damon, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolph, Awkwafina and Jon Stewart.

Speaking with Jimmy Fallon, Krasinski described how his children and the challenges of Covid had inspired him, recalling, “Genuinely, I saw their light starting to go out, and they started playing fewer and fewer imaginary games.” He added “I used to just stand in the doorway and watch my kids disappear in this magical world that we, as parents, aren’t allowed in,” he explained. “And it wasn’t just like the joy that was on their face, it was how authentic they were — they could be anything they wanted in this world. And I said, ‘Em, that would make a great movie.’”

IF will have its full release in cinemas worldwide May 17.
