I want you to look at the above movie poster. It's the one that says Safe Haven. Ignore the title of this article for a moment, and guess on whose book this film is based. Here's a hint. Look at the poster for The Lucky One. The Last Song. Nights in Rodanthe. The Notebook. Not a lot of imagination here. It gets switched up, though! Check out Dear John! Or Message in a Bottle. Or A Walk to Remember. More patterns. And that's it, folks. That is every movie adapted from novels by schmaltzy romancer Nicholas Sparks. If you keep watching them, they'll keep making them.
Of course, you may keep watching them because you like them and aren't tired of them for some reason, and if that's you, then read on! Tomorrow, Thursday, Fathom Events prevents a very special one-night only live broadcast of a behind-the-scenes special and Q&A with the cast and filmmakers of the upcoming Safe Haven. The film stars Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough and is directed by Lasse Hallström, all of whom will be in attendance, as well as Mr. Sparks himself. The broadcast will also include the aforementioned exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and a sneak peek.
Safe Haven tells the story of a Katie (Hough), a young woman on the run from something. She settles down in a small town and falls in love with the charming widower Alex (Duhamel). Of course, the past always catches up to you, and her new-found life may not be the “safe haven” she thought it was (see what I did there?).
It all starts at 8:00 at three theaters locally: Tinseltown (4400 Towne Center Drive), Stonybrook (2745 S. Hurstbourne Pkwy), and Stadium 16 (300 Professional Court, New Albany). Complete information can be found at the Fathom Events website.
