Saoirse Ronan stars in first trailer and poster for How I Live Now

Saoirse Ronan stars in the first trailer for How I Live Now , and you can also see the new quad poster, above.

Based on the young adult novel by Meg Rosoff and directed by The Last King Of Scotland ’s Kevin Macdonald, the hard-to-categorise romantic drama sees Daisy (Ronan) leaving America to spend time with her cousins in England.

Initially frosty, Daisy soon establishes a bond with her cousins, particularly the eldest, Edmond (George MacKay), with whom she develops a romantic relationship.

Their idyllic folksy lifestyle is literally blown apart by the outbreak of World War 3, which ravages their homestead and separates the young lovers.

Watch the trailer in full below:

How I Live Now opens in the UK on 4 October 2013.
