The trailer for the movie, formerly titled "The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea," brings together two very different characters who are both drifting in their lives. Henry (Sudeikis) has a beautiful wife (Jessica Biel), a baby on the way, and a thriving career as an architect when one moment upends it all. Millie (Williams) is a homeless teen scavenging for parts in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. She wants to build a boat to sail across the ocean — and Henry, spurred on by his wife, decides to help her.
The trailer is pretty sappy, not going to lie. It also gives quite a bit of the movie away, including the not-twist that Henry's pregnant wife dies in an accident. But Sudeikis and Williams are both talented actors, and they exhibit good chemistry.
"The Book of Love" opens January 13.
