If you've been aching for some gut-wrenching romantic heartbreak, look no further than Ned Benson's upcoming "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."

The film, which stars Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy, follows the rise and fall of a couple's intense emotional relationship, and has a vibe reminiscent of "Blue Valentine," but somehow even more romantic/tragic.

Told from the different perspectives of each of its main characters, the work actually premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last fall as two subtitled pieces, "Him," and "Her." Those features were recut into the combined "Them" and that debuted in Cannes this past May.

The new version will hit theaters on Sept. 26, but the separate films will also be released later in the fall.

"We have two different versions now,” Chastain, who is also a producer on the project, told Hitfix. “You get to choose what you want to see.”

After watching the film's tear-jerking trailer, you're probably going to want to catch both.
