If you’re making an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel it is compulsory that at some point a hunky young guy will get his shirt off – and if you want to sell the movie, you’ll probably release a few pics from that scene to publicise the movie.
That’s what’s happened with the upcoming Safe Haven, with a new pic of Transformers star Josh Duhamel frolicking in the surf with Julianne Hough.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
The Lasse Halstrom (Dear John) directed movie hits UK cinemas on March 1st. Click on the pics below for larger versions.
