Zac Efron gets hot and heavy with Taylor Schilling as seen in a newly-released trailer of "The Lucky One". The former tackles the role of a United States Marine Sergeant named Logan Thibault, while the later portrays Beth Clayton, a girl in the photo he finds while on duty in Iraq.

A Proper Trailer for The Lucky One

8 December 2011 6:41 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Curious that we got a featurette (with a partial trailer buried within) for Scott Hicks’ “The Lucky One”, his adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name, before we even got the trailer. Speaking of which, here’s the proper trailer, which is essentially the same trailer in the featurette, though there may or may not be a couple of extra seconds of Taylor Schilling groping Zac Efron’s ass inside his briefs in this one. Don’t hold me to it, though, ladies. And er, some of you guys out there. U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive-a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know.

‘The Lucky One’ Trailer – Zac Efron Finally Does Nicholas Sparks Adaptation

8 December 2011 1:53 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Do you recognize those sunny lips? You aren’t alone. It seems like he would have tackled this early on in his career, but Zac Efron has finally done a Nicholas Sparks adaptation. The featurette for The Lucky One arrived a few weeks back, but now we have the theatrical trailer. As we previously stated, coming off his overlooked Clive Owen drama The Boys Are Back, director Scott Hicks is getting back to more sure-fire box-office territory with this film.

Co-starring Taylor Schilling and Blythe Danner, it looks to be a nicely shot, predictable story as most of his material. I’m more interested in Efron starring in Ramin Bahrani‘s next film as well as Lee DanielsPrecious follow-up, The Paperboy, but this one should please his usual fans. Check out the trailer below via Apple.

First Trailer and Poster for The Lucky One Starring Zac Efron

8 December 2011 1:39 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first trailer and poster have debuted for the drama The Lucky One. It’s a Nicholas Sparks adaptation starring Zac Efron with a song by The Fray blasting over the trailer, so you’re either squealing in excitement or reaching for a razor blade depending on your affinity for predictable romantic dramas. The film tells the story of a marine in the Iraq war who finds a photograph of a woman that brings him good luck while in combat. He then proceeds to stalk find her once he returns home. The movie looks pretty terrible, complete with every single character beat you’re expecting. The only mystery now, given that it’s a Sparks adaptation, is which one of them dies. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. Directed by Scott Hicks, the film also stars Taylor Schilling and Blythe Danner. The Lucky One opens April 20th, »

Watch: Zac Efron is Touchy Feely in First Trailer for 'The Lucky One'

8 December 2011 1:32 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You should be kissed every day, every hour, every minute." It seems kind of strange that it's taken this long for Zac Efron to star in an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, but here we are with the first trailer for The Lucky One. When the plot synopsis for The Last Photograph from Zack Snyder came out, I knew the plot sounded vaguely familiar and this is why. The film from Scott Hicks (Snow Falling on the Cedars, Shine) follows a Marine who travels to North Carolina after serving in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman from a photo he found on the battlefield that he believes was his good luck charm. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for Scott Hicks' adaptation of The Lucky One from Apple: You can also download The Lucky One official trailer in High Def over on Apple Scott Hicks (Snow Falling on the Cedars, »

Nicholas Sparks And Zac Efron Talk About The Lucky One In Terrific First Look Featurette

1 December 2011 1:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Nicholas Sparks’ novels have had without a doubt had tremendous success both in terms of book sales and the box office takings of their film adaptations. His latest novel to be turned into a film is The Lucky One, published back in 2008, and it certainly looks like it is set to continue what is a brilliant trend for the novelist, whose film adaptations to date include Message in a Bottle, Nights in Rodanthe, Dear John, and of course, the incredibly popular The Notebook, which gave a huge boost to the careers of its leading stars, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling.

Yahoo Movies have now got a brilliant first look at the film with a poster and a great featurette in which Sparks talks about the story of the film along with some its leading cast, which includes Zac Efron (17 Again), relative newcomer Taylor Schilling (Ben Affleck’s upcoming Argo), Blythe Danner »

Zac Efron a Lucky One in New Featurette

Zac Efron a Lucky One in New Featurette

Will actor Zac Efron become the next Ryan Gosling? For many film viewers, Gosling first hit their radars when he starred in The Notebook, a big screen adaptation of a romantic Nicholas Sparks novel. It’s Efron’s turn to headline a Sparks adapted picture. Today the actor appears in a film featurette.

The film is called The Lucky One. In it Efron plays a Marine fighting in Iraq. Sparks fans will no doubt draw a congruency between The Lucky One and Channing Tatum’s role in Sparks’ Dear John. Efron’s Marine stumbles across a photo of a woman, and through a series of events, becomes convinced the photo of a stranger brings him good luck.

Once Efron’s character, U.S. Marine Logan Thibault, gets back stateside to Colorado, he can’t stop thinking about his lucky charm. He goes »
