Those aren't tears...Zac Efron gets emotional in this trailer for Charlie St. Cloud

05.14.2010

Say what you will, but I've got a feeling that Zac Efron is a good egg.

His acting doesn't seem too atrocious and the attention on him has settled down since Robert Pattinson came off the boat. I'm also not opposed to him taking on the role of my second cartoon crush, JONNY QUEST.

His next film, CHARLIE ST. CLOUD doesn't really look too bad. Ray Liotta and Donal Logue are among the cast as well. I've also added the poster for the film below the trailer. Look upon Zac Efron gazing into the clouds with whimsy.

Your thoughts on the trailer?

Official synopsis:

Based on an acclaimed novel, Charlie St. Cloud is a romantic drama starring Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way. In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love. Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it. After his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own.

Efron is cool in my book. I thought 17 Again was totally watchable, and his Entourage cameo turned me around. I think he has potential.

between the 4 mile run in his suit and that flamboyant "knockout punch" I can safely say there is no chance I'd ever watch this. Just not my thing.

Not bad. I'm in no rush to seek it out, but I'll see it eventually.

I feel like I've just seen the movie bu it doesn't look to bad. I'm also willing to give Efron a chance, it started with his little cameo in Entourage.

Wow, that actually looks pretty not bad. While I can't actually claim to have ever seen Zac Efron in ANYTHING, what I do know about him makes me think this guy's here to stay. And as much as we make fun of the man, I'm OK with that.

I am not a hater

Last year I was one of the few people that thought that Efron's last film "Me and Orson Welles" looked good and I remeber stating "Give Efron a chance". But this movie is trying way too hard to tug the emotions. It kind of reminds me of Simon Birch, a movie that tried to do everything it could to make you cry. It feels like Simon Birch. Best of luck to Efron and the filmmaker, but I have to say... Pass.

I'm willing to give Efron a chance.

Unlike some ppl in Hollywood, he doesn't whore himself out at nightclubs and late-night adventures. He's always working, and seems serious about his career. If he never started at Disney, people would NEVER be as hateful towards him as they are. Orson Wells and now this showcases a calm and smooth transition into more dramatic and serious projects. I support this guy.

Looks good

I think we have a couple of haters here. That didnt look half bad. I dont think its winning any oscars but it didnt look horrible by any means.

And Zac is growing up and I think thats awesome. He started in High School Musical, I like how he is trying to get out of that mold with something a bit serious.

God that was painful

I have never seen a trailer were they force every single emotion possible. Bullshit. Watcing that trailer was like having sex with a transvestite. You feel weird at the end.

He's always seemed a bit dead behind the eyes to me.

Like he's a robot imitating a human, like that film with Robin Williams in
