Another cliched Nicholas Sparks film hits theatres.
Well, it looks like this is one film you are not going to want to waste your time on this weekend. The general consensus of Ross Katz's adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel 'The Choice' is that it's no different to any other Sparks novel/film, and certainly doesn't match up to 'The Notebook'.
The Choice has had some bad reviews
Starring Benjamin Walker from 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' and Teresa Palmer from 'Warm Bodies', this tale of two young lovers named Travis and Gabby whose relationship takes a devastating turn when the latter falls into a coma after an accident, has failed to impress critics with its tear-jerking concept and instead has been labelled as blatantly formulaic.

Actress Teresa Palmer Was Relieved When She Was Replaced In Jumper, Because She Had A Terrible Experience On The Film Set.
The Warm Bodies star was just 19 when she landed the role in the time-travelling drama, and she still can't believe what was asked of her as she started shooting with director Doug Liman and stars Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson.
"There has been things on this movie that were sexist and not professional at all," the Australian actress told Grazia magazine. "I cannot believe, today, that as a 19 year old girl, I was put in such an awful situation.
"It's the biggest relief that I got replaced on this movie. For the two or three months I was attached to it, I could not sleep, I thought I was losing my mind... and I decided to quit and go back to Adelaide."

Christian Bale Mistook His Co-star Teresa Palmer For A Stripper On The Set Of Their Movie Knight Of Cups.
The Dark Knight star does not keep up with the Hollywood social scene and often fails to recognise fellow actors, so he had no idea who Teresa was when they met during filming of the new Terrence Malick movie.
Terrence deliberately failed to introduce Christian to his co-stars, so the actor thought Teresa was a real exotic dancer when they met during a scene set in a strip club.
"Even when they were actors, Terry would still tell me they weren't," Christian tells the London Evening Standard. "We were filming in a strip club, and Teresa Palmer's there in her little silver hotpants and I'm asking her how long she'd been dancing for? Does she enjoy it? What got her into it? I had no idea that she was an actress until about a week after working with her. Suddenly I saw a billboard with her face on it and I went 'What?'"

The actor and director Kriv Stenders enjoyed parodying the action genre.
Set to hit theaters this weekend, 'Kill Me Three Times' sees Simon Pegg in yet another violent parody, this time taking on the classic hitman-action drama. Pegg and director Kriv Stenders reveal the paradigms that make the genre so fun to lampoon.
Simon Pegg enjoyed carrying his huge gun
He's mocked the zombie horror, the cop thriller, the sci-fi adventure, the romance drama and the period thriller, but now Pegg has taken on what looks to be one of his most fun roles yet, playing experienced assassin Charlie Wolfe in this complicated tale of betrayal, infidelity and revenge. And it seems Pegg and Stenders were on the same wavelength before filming even started.
