The first trailer for director Michael Sucsy’s (Grey Gardens) drama The Vow has gone online. Starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, the film was inspired by a true story and centers on a young woman (McAdams) who loses all recent memory in a car accident and struggles to rebuild her identity, while her husband (Tatum) tries to win her heart for the second time. Surprisingly, this is not based on a Nicholas Sparks novel.
Judging from the trailer, the flick looks like it’s better than it has to be. McAdams is a fine actress, and Sucsy’s work on HBO’s Grey Gardens was fantastic. Tatum’s been trying to work his way into more dramatic fare (both in acting and producing), but I’m still not sold on him as a serious actor. Hit the jump to watch the trailer for yourself. The Vow hits theaters February 10th, 2012.
