Aaron Taylor-Johnson Battles Death and Addiction in the Trailer For A Million Little Pieces

It looks like scammers really do prosper because the titular movie adaptation of James Frey's controversial 2003 bestselling book, A Million Little Pieces, just dropped its first trailer.

Boasting a star-studded cast including Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Charlie Hunnam, and Billy Bob Thornton, the film tells the story of 23-year-old James, an alcoholic and drug addict faced with two options: rehab or death. Like the novel — which became a controversy when accusations of embellishment and lies came to light — the film follows James through his struggle with addiction and recovery as he "heals his broken soul by connecting with other kindred spirits who also yearn and fight for a better life." Watch the trailer above, and look out for the infamous memoir-turned-film when it hits cinemas later this year.
