From acclaimed author Nicholas Sparks comes another book-to-movie adaptation called "Safe Haven." It stars Julianne Hough (former "Dancing with the Stars" dancer) and Josh Duhamel, who has previously starred in "When in Rome" and "Life as We Know It." .
It's up two hundred and fifty percent on IMDb's Movie Meter, which measures how many page views a movie title receives. "Safe Haven" has surpassed "Beautiful Creatures" and "A Good Day to Die Hard," both set for release on February 14.
Several trailers have been released for "Safe Haven" and has also been marketed decently well on TV. Regardless of this information and the movie meter, it still remains to be seen if it will come out on top for its opening weekend when set against two very different kinds of movies.
Granted, "Safe Haven" is a romantic movie opening on Valentine's Day, so chances are it will draw couples set on seeing something sweet together.
"Safe Haven" follows the story of Katie (Hough), who, after running from her dark past, makes a home in Southport, North Carolina. There she meets and falls in love with Alex (Duhamel) and settles in with him and his two children. However, before long, her secret past catches up to her and threatens to destroy her new life.
"Safe Heaven" is adopted for the screen by Leslie Bohem and Dana Stevens and is directed Lasse Hallström. It will be released nationwide on February 14.
