The “Best” part of last night’s Teen Choice Awards might not have been meant just for the teens.
During the show, the first trailer for Nicholas Sparks’s latest, “The Best of Me,” starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, was released.
The two play former lovers who meet up after 20 years – sorry, 21 – after being torn apart by tragic circumstances.
Marsden’s ruggedly handsome Dawson seeks out his first love, Amanda (Monaghan) after a near-death experience causes him to reevaluate his life, and the spark (no pun intended) is still there.
Liana Liberato and Luke Bracey co-star as the younger versions of their characters, who tried to make it work even after Dawson was wrongfully imprisoned.
Sparks is on a roll lately, as his next adaptation, “The Longest Ride,” is already filming. Set to debut in April 2015, that stars Britt Robertson (“Under the Dome”) and Scott Eastwood as a young couple.
"The Best of Me" opens on October 17. Watch the trailer for yourself and tell us what you think in the comments section below!
