First Trailer: “Midnight Sun”

Though based on a 2006 Japanese film as opposed to a Nicholas Sparks novel, the first trailer for the teen romancer “Midnight Sun” feels familiar even if its premise offers a slight twist.

Yes, it’s about two teens in love and one of them has a chronic illness that’s likely terminal. The difference here is it isn’t cancer but the rarer xeroderma pigmentosum which renders someone allergic to sunlight – even a tiny amount of exposure can be devastating.

Bella Thorne stars as the girl who suffers from the condition and Patrick Schwarzenegger (son of Arnold) plays her suitor, with Rob Riggle and Quinn Shephard co-starring. The first trailer has arrived below and comes ahead of the film’s release on March 23rd.
