Nicholas Sparks is at it again, with his darn heart-tuggin' ways. In "The Best of Me," high school sweethearts are reunited after 20 years apart. James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan star as Dawson and Amanda, whose dreamy small-town love is cut short by Amanda's dad. (Liana Liberato and Luke Bracey play teenage Amanda and Dawson.) Dawson never quite got over their affair, but Amanda's moved on -- until they see each other again, and boom! You know how that goes.
Except, since it's a Sparks novel, there will be plenty of weird twists thrown in to keep our not-so-young lovers on their toes. This trailer emphasizes the soft-focus romantic bits, but nothing is ever that easy in Nicholas Sparks' world. If you saw last year's "Safe Haven," you know just how crazy things can get, so perhaps brace yourselves for something truly bananas to come out of left field.

Born to humble beginnings, Sir Patrick Stewart has worked his way up to become one of the most recognizable stars today.
The veteran stage actor was prolific as a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company for over a decade. However, it wasn't until the late 1980s that Stewart broke out on screen, portraying Captain Jean-Luc Picard on "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Riding that wave, he was cast as the iconic Professor Charles Xavier in the film adaptation of the "X-Men" comic books. This summer, Stewart reprises the role of the mutant Xavier once again in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
