Let's be clear: The most interesting thing about the new teaser trailer for the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation, THE BEST OF ME, is that it wants us to believe that Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) somehow grows up to look like James Marsden. Like, in what world do these two actors look alike? I mean...
Anyway, the story is from the master of melodramatic romances, so we should expect anything completely
Based on the bestselling novel by acclaimed author Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me tells the story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they've never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.
I know some of you love a quintessential Sparks saga, so judging by this clip alone, you shouldn't be disappointed. Check it out:
