Poor James Marsden. Despite being the cutest thing to walk this planet, he never seems to bag the ladies on screen. In The Notebook, Enchanted and Superman Returns, he leaves empty handed with a puppy-dog look on his face.

But things are looking up for Superman as he reunites with Notebook author Nicholas Sparks for an adaptation of his novel The Best of Me, starring alongside True Detective alum Michelle Monaghan.

The Best of Me tells the story of two high-school sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks who are heartbreakingly pulled apart. 21 years later, they are reunited and try to spark up a relationship again.

It also stars Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato as younger versions of Marsden and Monaghan - who look literally nothing like either of them, but whatever.

The Best of Me is released October 17. If you missed it, watch the trailer below:
