Paramount Pictures has shared a new  glimpse at Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski's fantasy comedy movie "IF".

Written and directed by the “Quiet Place” helmer, “IF” — an abbreviation for “Imaginary Friends —  follows a young girl who starts seeing imaginary friends that have been abandoned by their originators. 

In addition to Reynolds and Krasinski, the cast also stars Cailey Fleming, Fiona Shaw, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr., Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Maya Rudolph, Jon Stewart, Bobby Moynihan, Sam Rockwell, Sebastian Maniscalco, Christopher Meloni, Richard Jenkins, Awkwafina, and Steve Carell, who voices a huge, cuddly purple creature.

“IF” reunites Krasinski with Carell onscreen for the first time in 10 years. They previously starred together in the 2005 series “The Office”.

“‘IF’ is a movie that I made for my kids because I don’t think they’re allowed to see ‘A Quiet Place’; Emily [Blunt] calls it PG-40, ‘You’ll get to see it when you’re 40!’ So I had to make a movie that they could see, and I’m really, really excited about it,” Krasinski previously told Collider

“For me, it was just about what if we could tell a story about these time capsules? Imaginary friends are adorable and all those things, but they’re also time capsules of your hopes, dreams and ambitions when you were the most fertile of a brain, and it never goes away. I think we’re told that we’re adults instead of what if you realize that you never stopped being a kid.”

Krasinski produces the kid-friendly creature feature through his company, Sunday Night, along with Reynolds and his banner, Maximum Effort. Also producing are Allyson Seeger and Andrew Form.

“IF” is set for release on May 17.
