While everyone was preparing for the holidays last week, 20th Century Fox released its new trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ The Longest Ride. The book was released in 2013 and quickly adapted into a movie starring Britt Robinson, Scott Eastwood and Alan Alda. The story follows two relationships—one between college student Sophia and cowboy Luke, and the other between Ira and Ruth. Their stories intertwine after Ira is in a car crash and Sophia and Luke find him. Ruth has recently died, and Ira is holding onto her memory. Through flashbacks, Ira remembers his time with Ruth and the dark days of WWII that threatened to tear them apart. Sparks’ seventeenth romance novel gives readers a new perspective on love and loss.

The film hits theaters on April 10.
