In this tearjerker drama, Zac Efron is overcome by grief at the death of his younger brother but later has to decide whether to live in his past or to move forward with newfound love.
The first full trailer for "Charlie St. Cloud" has been brought forward to tease people of what can be seen from this Zac Efron-starring film. Opened with the scene in which the lead actor survived a car accident but lost his brother, the video debuted by Apple then sees how his late brother lives in his imagination after the tragedy while he finds his love interest.
In addition to the trailer, Universal Pictures has also provided other sneak peeks in form of several brand new pictures. One of them is a poster, while the others are production photos which give preview to the film scenes.
Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud has a bright future which is cut short when a tragedy that costs him his brother's life strikes and takes his dreams with it.
