Check out this brand new trailer for Relativity’s new epic love story THE BEST OF ME. Based on the best selling novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, THE BEST OF ME is the story of Dawson and Amanda two high school sweethearts who reunite after 20 years apart when a close friend passes away. It is a story of first love which leaves everyone including Dawson and Amanda wondering if those old feelings ever truly go away. While their reunion brings back all those lost feelings it also reminds them of what drove them apart all those years ago and shows them that those same threats may be even more serious today. A heartbreaking, heart-wrenching story of true love, hard choices and second chances THE BEST OF ME will pull at your heartstrings for sure.
The film stars Michelle Monaghan as Amanda, and James Marsden as Dawson. Between the Lady Antebellum song in the background and the trailer itself, I can’t deny even I was a bit misty eyed by the end. The hopeless romantic in me has me excited for this film as the trailer depicts a beautiful and somewhat tragic love story.
As a fan of Nicholas Sparks novels, which I have read more than a few I am always excited when his books are adapted into films, no one will ever forget THE NOTEBOOK or the amount of tears they shed while watching it. Sadly most people focus on the not so great adaptations, but I have to argue there were far more that were done well than not. A WALK TO REMEMBER, THE NOTEBOOK, MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE, NIGHTS IN RODANTHE, THE LUCKY ONE and even DEAR JOHN were all done well and had fans of the books as well as those who hadn’t turned the pages of those books falling in love with both the story and their characters. While SAFE HAVEN was not my favorite, it still had fans of Sparks and love stories lining up to buy tickets. I have high hopes for THE BEST OF ME!
The film opens in theatres October 17, 2014, so make sure and bring your tissues because you will need them.
