The first trailer for One Day has been released. Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education), the film stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. One Day tells the story of two friends who meet on the night of their college graduation and proceed to meet exactly once each year on July 15 for the next two decades. The trailer looked alright until the banal voice-over came on, then it kind of spiraled into a horrifying train wreck. Still, the premise is interesting enough, and under Scherfig’s direction it could possibly turn out OK. Then again, it could be the next Leap Year.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. One Day is set to be released on July 8th.
Here’s the trailer (via Yahoo!):
Here’s the official synopsis:
