This is a movie we can't wait to see, no IFs about it!

Imagine a world where imaginary friends roam free, bringing joy and wonder to those who believe. John Krasinski — one of our on- and off-screen favorites — brings this enchanting vision to life in his latest film, "IF." Known for his roles as an actor, director, and producer, Krasinski's most important title for this project might just be Dad. His storytelling for "IF" is imbued with a deep understanding of childhood wonder and appreciation of a creative imagination.

"Being a dad to two little girls, you know, I think it sort of filters all of his storytelling through that prism," says Ryan Reynolds, who stars in the movie. "And I think it’s beautiful."

At the heart of the story is Bea, portrayed by the talented Cailey Fleming, a young girl facing troubling times. Bea discovers an extraordinary ability to see imaginary friends and sets out on an exciting adventure to reconnect IFs with their kids and, along the way, rediscover the magic in each of us.

"Imaginary friends are not just these adorable creatures," Krasinski says. "They are actually time capsules for our hopes, dreams, ambitions."

Joining Bea on her imaginative adventure is Cal, played by the always charming and always hilarious Ryan Reynolds. But he's just one of many recognizable stars in "IF." Krasinski's star-studded cast includes the voices of George Clooney, Louis Gossett Jr., Emily Blunt, and Steve Carell (It's an "Office" reunion!) Each brings to life a wonderfully unique character, from the wise and lovable Lewis to the bubbly and kind-hearted Unicorn, adding depth, charm, and a ton of laughs to the fantastical world of "IF."

"The cast is insane," Krasinski says. "I know for a fact I’ll never get a better cast than this."

With its heartfelt world, "IF" promises to be the family movie event of the summer, and a favorite for a long time to come.
