Major cheese factor alert! Warner Bros. has debuted the first trailer and poster for the Nicholas Sparks romantic drama The Lucky One. Directed by Scott Hicks and starring Zac Efron, the story centers on Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron), a US Marine who finds a photograph of an unknown woman (Taylor Schilling) in Iraq and credits it for saving his life in combat. He vows to find her once he returns to America and eventually does nothing less than stalk her while taking a job at her family-run local kennel. What a creep.
The trailer is exactly what you would expect from a lowly Sparks adaptation, complete with super cheesy lines, melodramatic acting and a song by The Fray blaring at you throughout the preview. This totally looks like a TV ad for a Lifetime Channel movie. Best of all, you will see the entire movie in 2 minutes!
Check out the trailer and poster below or click over to Apple to it watch in HD. The Lucky One opens April 20th, 2012.
U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive-a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know. Learning her name is Beth (Taylor Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.
