The cinematic and literary equivalent of Thomas Kinkade, the work of Nicholas Sparks is all formulaic golden hues and Hallmark sentiments, seemingly spoon-fed annually to a consistent audience of folks who believe in love conquers all. You already know if you'll be seeing "The Best Of Me," but if you're still somehow on the fence or simply curious, the first trailer has arrived.

The Best Of Me

The cinematic and literary equivalent of Thomas Kinkade, the work of Nicholas Sparks is all formulaic golden hues and Hallmark sentiments, seemingly spoon-fed annually to a consistent audience of folks who believe in love conquers all. You already know if you'll be seeing "The Best Of Me," but if you're still somehow on the fence or simply curious, the first trailer has arrived.

Michael Hoffman ("The Last Station," "One Fine Day," "The Emperor's Club") directs this one, which stars Luke Bracey, Liana Liberato, James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, and tells the story of two attractive young people who love each other but can't be together because... the south?... but wind up reunited twenty years later for more jumping in lakes or whatever and definitely more sex. Hot. But really, this is more margarine-lensed hokum with surely a Sparks-ian twist somewhere in there. But don't ask us, because we never read the book and never will.

"The Best Of Me" arrives on October 17th.
