What would happen if you combined Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games into a weepy romantic comedy?

No, you don't get The Hunger Game of Thrones...but you do get something quite nice instead!

Sam Claflin (District 4's Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen, mother of dragons in GoT) are coming together for the adaption of Jojo Moyes' best-selling book, Me Before You, and the trailer already has us reaching for a box of tissues.

The film follows the story of a small-town 26-year-old woman named Louisa (Clarke) who finds herself stuck between dead-end jobs when she is hired to take care of Will (Claflin), a successful, adrenaline junkie who becomes wheelchair bound following an accident.

Lou is given six months to take care of Will, and though they get off to a bit of a rocky start, she eventually becomes the woman who shows him what life is worth living for. Their adventures together surpass anything they ever envisioned, resulting in a sweet romance we can't wait to watch unfold!

Me Before You will hit theaters on June 3.
