We may not be getting a new Nicholas Sparks movie for Valentine’s Day this year, but 20th Century Fox is still celebrating the holiday with a brand new The Longest Ride trailer. The film stars Britt Robertson as a college student who falls for a bull rider (Scott Eastwood). They love each other oh-so much, but they come from such different worlds. [Gasp!] How can Luke and Sophia possibly make this work?
Sorry for the cynicism, but how many times have we heard that before? Clearly Nicholas Sparks movies aren’t really for me, but I do have to admit, if you are a fan, this is a strong, engaging trailer and it seems as though Robertson really could carry this one well. Check out the special Valentine’s Day The Longest Ride trailer below. The film hits theaters on April 10th and also stars Alan Alda, Oona Chaplin and Jack Huston. Also, if you’re interested, Huston will be holding a Twitter Q&A today at 3:30pm PST. Click here to follow along.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Longest Ride:
Based on the bestselling novel by master storyteller Nicholas Sparks, THE LONGEST RIDE centers on the star-crossed 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. As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected and fateful connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple. Spanning generations and two intertwining love stories, THE LONGEST RIDE explores the challenges and infinite rewards of enduring love.
