Let's go back to where it all began.

One of Hollywood's most elusive couples are taking center stage in the first trailer for the upcoming film The Light Between Oceans – and it's easy to see where their undeniable chemistry first sparked.

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander – both current Oscar nominees for Steve Jobs and The Danish Girl, respectively – star as a lighthouse keeper and his wife living on a remote island in Australia.

The two discover a boat near the shore with a dead man and a baby girl inside, leaving them to raise the child as their own. But years later they discover that the baby's biological mother might still be alive and are faced with an unimaginable decision.



"One day, this will all feel like a dream, I promise," Fassbender's character says in the trailer.

Vikander, 27, and Fassbender, 38, have been romantically linked since meeting on set of The Light Between Oceans in 2014.

The film, an adaption of M.L. Stedman's novel of the same name, also stars Rachel Weisz and hits theaters later this year.
