“I cried at ‘The Notebook.’ If anybody said they didn’t cry in ‘The Notebook‘ they are just lying,” Scott Eastwood declared to ET. If you wept while watching the Nicholas Sparks adaptation Eastwood speaks of, then chances are you are the target demographic for “The Longest Ride.” And the first trailer is here.
Co-starring Eastwood and Britt Robertson and directed by George Tillman Jr. (“Notorious,” “Faster“), the movie tracks some intersecting storylines, first following a love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world. Will the country boy and city bound gal make it? Well, good thing Sophia and Luke make an unexpected connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple. Cue tears, romance and hankies.
“The Longest Ride” arrives on April 10, 2015. Watch the trailer below.
