ABOUT THE FILMS:
Safe Haven (2013)
This deeply moving romantic thriller tells the story of a young woman’s struggle to find love again after she arrives in a small North Carolina town.
When a mysterious young woman (Julianne Hough, Rock of Ages) arrives in Southport, 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 (Josh Duhamel, Transformers franchise), 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 finds she must rely on the power of love.
The film is directed by Oscar®-nominated Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules), based on the novel by Sparks from a screenplay by Dana Stevens and Gage Lansky. Cobie Smulders (The Avengers) and David Lyons (TV’s “Revolution”) also star.
The Lucky One (2012)
Zac Efron (17 Again) stars with Taylor Schilling (TV’s “Orange is the New Black”) and Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents franchise) in this romantic drama directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks (Shine, 1996). U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq with the one thing he credits for keeping him alive — a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know. Learning her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.
Dear John (2010)
Directed by Lasse Halström, Dear John tells the story of John Tyree (Channing Tatum, Magic Mike), a young soldier home on leave, and Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried, Les Miserables), the idealistic college student he falls in love with during her spring vacation. Over the next seven tumultuous years, the couple is separated by John’s increasingly dangerous deployments. While meeting only sporadically, they stay in touch by sending a stream of love letters which eventually triggers fateful consequences.
Nights in Rodanthe (2008)
This rich tale of hearts awakening stars Richard Gere (Arbitrage) and Diane Lane (Secretariat). Gere is Paul, a surgeon who long ago unwittingly traded family for career. Lane is Adrienne, a devoted mother trying to move on after her husband’s infidelity and struggling with his desire to return to their marriage. At a remote inn on the Outer Banks, both separately expect to do some serious soul-searching. But an approaching storm forces each to turn to the other for strength, setting the stage for a life-resonating romance.
The Notebook (2004)
The Notebook is a story of lost chances, growing up, and the power of enduring love. Spanning six decades, the romantic story focuses on two teenagers from opposite sides of the tracks (Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams) who fall in love during one summer but are tragically forced apart. When they reunite seven years later, their passionate romance is rekindled, forcing one of them to choose between true love and class order.
Directed by Nick Cassavetes, the film stars Rachel McAdams (Midnight in Paris) and Academy Award® nominees Ryan Gosling (Half Nelson, 2006), James Garner (TV’s “The Rockford Files”), Gena Rowlands (Taking Lives), Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff) and Joan Allen (The Bourne Legacy). James Marsden (X-Men series) and Kevin Connolly (TV’s “Entourage”) also star.
A Walk to Remember (2002)
The inspiring coming-of-age story about first love, A Walk to Remember is about two very different North Carolina teenagers: Landon Carter (Shane West, TV’s “ER”), a troubled, unmotivated but very popular student, and Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore, Tangled), the serious and conservative daughter of a preacher. As love pulls them closer, peer pressure and lifestyles seek to break them apart. Directed by Adam Shankman (Rock of Ages), A Walk to Remember co-stars Peter Coyote (Erin Brockovich) and Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill Vols. 1 + 2).
Message in a Bottle (1999)
In this tale of love lost and found, grieving widower Garret Blake (Kevin Costner, Dances with Wolves) may know how to build boats, but cannot rebuild his life. Theresa (Robin Wright, TV’s “House of Cards”), a lonely divorcee and researcher for the Chicago Tribune, comes to his North Carolina village to find him, knowing that Garret is the author of the message she found inside a bottle on a Cape Cod beach. And she knows the message spoke to her in a way that profoundly touched her heart. Directed by Luis Mandoki (When a Man Loves a Woman), the film co-stars Paul Newman as Garret’s father.

You think you know, but you don’t know Jack.
Based on the fairytales Jack the Giant Killer and Jack and the Beanstalk, this fantasy adventure film is the best of both stories. English heartthrob Nicholas Hoult takes on the lead role of Jack, a young farmhand who was sent into town by his Uncle with the mission to sell his horse in order to pay for the repairs on their leaky roof, but instead of cashing in–Jack returns with nothing but beans. Meanwhile, Princess Isabelle–played by Eleanor Tomlinson, argues with her father, King Brahmwell (Ian McShane), for the right to explore the kingdom and meet the people on her own instead of staying to marry the slimy Lord Roderick (Staneley Tucci). In turn, the princess runs away getting caught in a rain storm and seeking shelter at Jack’s home.
The pair, who have grown up with the story of the Giant beanstalk firmly in their minds, quickly find out what kind of power those beans hold as Jack’s house is carried into the sky by a huge stalk–with the Princess in tow, inadvertently opening a gateway to the world of giants between Heaven and Earth. Jack, Roderick, Roderick’s attendant, Wicke (Ewen Bremner), set out on a magical adventure to rescue the princess along with the king’s knights–including his right hand man Elmont (Ewan McGregor). You’d think their biggest problem would be a pack of angry giants, but the team will soon find out that there’s a traitor amongst them with zero intentions on saving the fair princess. The film is a perfect combination of a bit of backstabbing, romance, bravery, and adventure … everything you expect from a fairytale.
Between the close encounters with the giants and fascinating special effects, you’ll be on the edge of your seat waiting to see what comes next. A perfect family movie night film, in my opinion.

Tyler Hilton has been working his way into our musical loving hearts for the last decade! The 28-year-old singer-songwriter -turned- comedic actor has two studio albums and a couple of EPs under his belt; you may have caught him on the big screen in the 2005 Academy Award-nominated Walk the Line portraying Elvis Presley — or perhaps you saw him on the VH1 television series Single Ladies last year.
Let’s not forget his recurring gig as the wise-cracking musician, Chris Keller on the long-running CW Network television series One Tree Hill, in which he returned to last fall to film the ninth and finale season for the first time as a starring role.
Since completing his final run in Tree Hill, Tyler has been on the road promoting his third studio album called Forget The Storm.

We’re talking prizes, concert tickets, phone calls with our guy Ty and fun games for the next few weeks. [READ MORE]
“There is only One Tree Hill… and it’s your home.” That’s the quote that most sums up the television series we have come to know and love for nine years. We’ve grown up with it, you’ve grown up with it, and somehow — indirectly, that makes us family.
Like many of you, we’ve been fortunate to walk the sets of our favorite show and share real life moments with the cast and crew. For those of you who haven’t had the opportunity to tell someone like James Lafferty or Sophia Bush how much their character has inspired you, we would like to help fulfill a bit of your wish.
As the ladies behind OneTreeHillWeb.net, we’ve gathered many pieces of memorabilia from the show, including autographs, score CDs, and more, and we want to share them to you through the help of our other home, Fanvasion.com.
