Andy Serkis (War for the Planet of the Apes) makes his directorial debut with the dramatic film, Breathe, which just unveiled a new trailer. The inspirational film, which has a The Theory of Everything vibe, is based on a true story and stars Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge) and Claire Foy (The Crown). Tom Hollander (The Night Manager) and Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) co-star. Breathe was written by two-time Oscar nominee William Nicholson (Gladiator, Shadowlands).

Bleecker Street and Participant Media are planning an October 13, 2017 theatrical release.

The Plot: Andy Serkis brings to life the inspiring true love story between Robin and Diana Cavendish (Garfield and Foy), an adventurous couple who refuse to give up in the face of a devastating disease. After a fairytale-like courtship, Robin is struck down by polio at the age of 28, confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live. With the help of Diana’s twin brothers (Hollander) and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Bonneville), Robin and Diana dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together — raising their young son, traveling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients.
