First we had Ryan Gosling for The Notebook then we had Channing Tatum for Dear John and now we have Josh Duhamel in the heart-throb role for Nicholas Sparks love story ‘Safe Haven’. Duhamel stars opposite Julianne Hough who we recent saw in Rock of Ages and also the remake of the 80’s classic Footloose.
SAFE HAVEN is an affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again, Safe Haven is based on the novel from Nicholas Sparks, the best-selling author behind the hit films The Notebook and Dear John. When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, her reluctance to join the tight knit community raises questions about her past. Slowly, she begins putting down roots, and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children. But dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love in this deeply moving romantic thriller.
I think this time around the casting crew have done a solid for the guys aswell! Julianne Hough is gorgeous and all I have to say is damn you Ryan Seacrest…. The story looks fairly predictable but as usual the movies bring in the cash and for guys everywhere we breathe a sigh of relief that a chick flick is coming that will keep everyone’s girlfriends/wives happy.
Check out the trailer below – Safe Haven hits cinemas on the 7th Feb 2013 just in time for Valentines….
