Watch: Love Travels 20 Years In Trailer For Nicholas Sparks' 'The Best Of Me'

5 June 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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. »

Rupert Friend Replaces Paul Walker as Lead in New Hitman Movie Agent 47

10 January 2014 4:34 AM, PST | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Almost a year ago, it was revealed that Paul Walker was cast as the title character in "Agent 47," which is a sequel/reboot of the "Hitman" movie, which was released in 2007 with Timothy Olyphant as the lead. Since then, Walker has passed away. And now comes word that director Aleksander Bach has cast Rupert Friend, who is best known for playing CIA Agent Peter Quinn on "Homeland," as the lead in "Agent 47." Even though Walker was a more well-known actor, "Agent 47" producers believe that the franchise is popular enough to cast someone who isn't known to a general audience. Meanwhile, Walker was also set to play the lead in "The Best of Me," the upcoming Nicholas Sparks adaptation to be directed by Michael Hoffman (The Emperor's Club). That role has now been re-cast, bringing on James Marsden to take over. »
