'Marriage Story' will premiere in selected theatres and on Netflix this autumn.

"What I love about Charlie, he loves being a dad - it's nearly annoying how much he likes it", Johansson's Nicole says in her own trailer.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver star as Nicole and Charlie, a conflicted married couple who are on the verge of a divorce. Both the teasers show POV (point-of-view) of the husband and wife, what they love about each other. It all plays out in Baumbach's trademark subtle fashion, with Johansson and Driver delivering what looks to be fantastically nuanced performances.

Marriage Story is the brainchild of Noah Baumbach, who said of the dual trailers: "Marriage Story is a love story that reveals itself within the breakdown". Noah Baumbach (the director, producer, and writer of the movie) explained why he made a decision to show the POV of both characters of Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver.

The 49-year-old Oscar-nominated screenwriter was inspired to helm Marriage Story following his 2013 divorce from Jennifer Jason Leigh, with whom he has a nine-year-old son Rohmer. Their "amicable" breakup devolves, one painful rash response and hostile counter-response at a time, into a legal battlefield, led on Nicole's side by Laura Dern and on Charlie's side by "nice" Alan Alda and "not so nice" Ray Liotta.
