Out today (May 2nd) in the UK is romantic drama The Lucky One.
Synopsis: A Marine (Zac Efron) travels to Louisiana after serving three tours in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman (Taylor Schilling) from a picture he found and believes was his good luck charm during the war.
Based upon the novel by Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, Dear John, A Walk to Remember) The Lucky One is sure to bring in crowds of teenage girls eager to catch another glimpse of heartthrob Zac Efron.
The film itself looks straightforward and if you watch the trailer it gives away pretty much everything you need to know. Still there will always be a market for this kind of film and Nicholas Sparks appears to be the go to guy for turning his novels into movies. Directed by Scott Hicks, The Lucky One has performed relatively well in the US and worldwide and should bring in a reasonable sum at the UK box office.
Out on the 11th of May is Dark Shadows.
