Check out the newly-released trailer for “Save Haven,” the upcoming adaption of Nicholas Spark’s novel by  “The Cider House Rules” and “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” director Lasse Hallstrom.

An affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again, “Safe Haven” is based on the book by Sparks, the best-selling author behind films like “The Notebook” and “Dear John.”  When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, her reluctance to join the tight knit community raises questions about her past.

Slowly, she begins putting down roots, and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children.  But dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love in this romantic thriller.

“Safe Haven” stars Josh Duhamel, Julianne Hough, David Lyons and Cobie Smulders.  The film opens February 8, 2013.
