Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer from The Lucky One starring Zac Efron just a few days after they unveiled a behind-the-scenes look at the dramatic film. That video featured the cast and Sparks discussing the film, with clips sprinkled throughout. This trailer gives us a much better look at what to expect from the 2012 release.
Set to hit theaters on April 20, 2012, The Lucky One also stars Blythe Danner, Taylor Schilling, Jay R Ferguson, and Riley Thomas Stewart.

The Lucky One Synopsis [From the Nicholas Sparks Book]:
When U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman half-buried in the dirt during his third tour of duty in Iraq, his first instinct is to toss it aside. Instead, he brings it back to the base for someone to claim, but when no one does, he finds himself always carrying the photo in his pocket. Soon Thibault experiences a sudden streak of luck—winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat that kills two of his closest buddies. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph—his lucky charm.
Back home in Colorado, Thibault can’t seem to get the photo—and the woman in it—out of his mind. Believing that she somehow holds the key to his destiny, he sets out on a journey across the country to find her, never expecting the strong but vulnerable woman he encounters in Hampton, North Carolina—Elizabeth, a divorced mother with a young son—to be the girl he’s been waiting his whole life to meet. Caught off guard by the attraction he feels, Thibault keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate and all-consuming love affair, the secret he is keeping will soon threaten to tear them apart—destroying not only their love, but also their lives.
