The Lucky One

Oh boy, Zac Efron's "The Lucky One" is coming, and in case you couldn't tell, this was his "serious" movie. Director Scott Hicks ("Shine," "Snow Falling On Cedars," "No Reservations") is going to make sure you feel it in every frame.

A handful of clips from the film have emerged, totaling over five minutes, and they find Efron playing an Iraq war veteran (snicker), who credits the photo of a woman named Beth, whom never met, for saving his life. Instead of going to therapy like most people would, he tracks her down and a romance begins. Oh yeah, this is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. So, how can we tell little Zac is damaged? Well, they've got him wearing a scruffy half-beard (giggle) and in order to amp up the drama this thing is bathed drowned in Thomas Kinkade-style GOLDEN LIGHTING emerging from every cinematic orifice. And for fucks sake, there's even a mouthy kid in here. Can Zac help Beth get rid of her awful, muscle-car-driving husband? We hope so because gosh-he's-just-so-good-with-her-kid-and-zomg-wouldn't-he-be-a-good-father.

Anyway, once you're done watching the claptrap below, you can take a peek at the official soundtrack for the movie, which features a bunch of soft singer-songwriter fare by people you never heard of (though a couple of the tunes were on "Castle" and "Grey's Anatomy" if that's any indication). And for the dudes, Ponderosa (lol) and Mayfield serve up some of the most generic rock music you've ever heard. "The Lucky One" opens on April 20th, the soundtrack lands April 17th.
