The first trailer for the new Nicholas Sparks book to be adapted Best of Me was released yesterday through Moviefone.com. You can watch the trailer above. You can watch the trailer below.
In Best of Me, Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole embark on an epic love story but are torn apart because of their social classes. They meet twenty years later to attend a funeral for a mutual friend. They reconnect and find that they might get a second chance at love. The movie stars James Marsden, Michelle Monaghan, Liana Liberato, and Luke Bracey.
James Marsden is no stranger to a Nicholas Sparks adaptation. He starred in perhaps one of the most popular movie adaptations ever made in The Notebook, except this one he’s the one that gets the girl. Michelle Monaghan most recently was seen the HBO hit True Detective and is trying her hand at a romantic lead.
Luke Bracey recently starred in G.I. Joe Retaliation but this movie is really go show his acting chops as he will take center stage as young Dawson. Liana Liberato is playing young Amanda and she is most known for her role in Trespass. She is another young actress who is looking to break through with the help of this movie.
So far, the trailer looks amazingly beautiful and it looks like they did a good job at casting younger and older versions of the character where you could believe it (not so much like the younger older versions in The Notebook). Without giving any details about the plot, this movie should be a tear jerker and if done well, it should rank high in the adaptations (perhaps somewhere around A Walk to Remember level). It should be a good movie to see this movie this fall.
Best of Me is set to come out on October 17th.
