We'll start off by saying this is something we were definitely looking forward to and we're still holding out some hope, but the first trailer for "One Day" starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess is a bit wobbly, to say the least.

Based on the best-seller by David Nicholls, the story follows a young man and woman on one day a year, for twenty years, after they share a one-night stand at university. But we have to say, what guy, after getting ready to have sex only for the girl to back out due to nervousness says, that maybe, they can just be friends? It's a great romantic notion, sure, but not entirely one based in reality. Anyway, the rest of the trailer is effectively a bunch of meet cutes as we see the characters transition through age and fashion (Hathaway goes from dorky, glasses-wearing nerd to dreamy pixie hair cut vision) but the dialogue is often clunky ("I need to speak to someone...not someone.....you") and overall tone is fairly sappy. That said, the second half of the trailer is definitely much stronger. As the years go on the relationship gets more complex so we're still holding out hope this will be one with a bit more substance.

The cast is rounded out by Patricia Clarkson, Ken Stott, Romola Garai and Rafe Spall. Danish helmer Lone Scherfig, who made a major breakthrough with her last film, the Oscar-nominated “An Education,” directs. "One Day" opens wide on August 19th. [via ONTD]
