For some people, the seemingly annual Nicholas Sparks movie is an event along the lines of a Marvel release, so for those few, “The Choice” can’t come soon enough. And as the formula dictates, romance will come after some carefully contrived hardship, and the first trailer is here to fill you in on the details.
Ross Katz (“Adult Beginners“) directs the film, starring Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, Alexandra Daddario, Tom Welling, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Grace, about a seemingly happy couple, who of course, face difficulty but will probably wind up happy ever after anyway. Here’s the official synopsis:
When feisty medical student Gabby Holland moves in next door to perennial ladies’ man Travis Shaw, it sends them both on a romantic journey neither ever dreamed possible. Travis has always believed a serious relationship with a woman would cramp his easygoing lifestyle, while Gabby is all set to settle down her long-term boyfriend — until an irresistible attraction between the unlikely couple upends both of their well-planned lives. After a whirlwind courtship, Gabby and Travis wed and build a family together, making every decision hand-in-hand until one of them is forced to make the most important choice of their life alone. A poignant and life-affirming celebration of love, marriage and family that explores the most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?
“The Choice” opens on February 5, 2016. Watch below.
