I haven’t seen it yet, but I can already say that Channing Tatum’s upcoming romantic drama ‘The Vow‘ is going to be one of my favorite movies of all time, and here’s why…

First of all, it has Chan in it. Then, you throw in a heaping cup of Rachel McAdams, a dash of Scott Speedman, and an heartstring-tugging storyline, and you have an instant recipe for a film that Chan’s fans (me included) are going to stampede to go see.

The Vowstarted filming in Toronto last August, finished filming in Chicago last October and is scheduled to hit theaters around Valentine’s Day in 2012.

Since we have almost a year before the movie hits the big screen, I was really glad to see that Entertainment Weekly has featured the film in their “First Look” article where fan’s get an early peek at some of Hollywood’s coolest projects. Here’s what EW has to say about the highly anticipated film…

In The Vow (out Valentine’s Day 2012), McAdams stars as a woman who suffers a traumatic brain injury in a car accident and wakes up to find the past five years of her memories erased. During that time, she had married a handsome, loving man (Tatum) — but now she has no idea who he is. “We really are the sum of our memories. When that’s taken away, what do we have left?” says director Michael Sucsy (HBO’s Grey Gardens). “It’s a romantic story about a guy who has to win back his soul mate.”

In addition to Chan, Rachel, and Scott, ‘The Vow‘ also stars Jessica McNamee, Sam Neill, and two-time Academy Award winner Jessica Lange. As EW says above, the film is about a young woman named Paige (played by Rachel) who loses all recent memory in a car accident and struggles to rebuild her identity and remember her husband Leo (played by Chan). Speedman will play McAdams’ former fiance, with whom she begins to rekindle a romance in her amnesiac state, and Jessica plays McAdams’ estranged younger sister in the film.

The Vow‘ is based on the real-life story of Arizona couple Kim and Krickitt Carpenter who were married in 1993. Two months after their marriage, the couple’s car was hit from behind by a truck, leaving Krickitt in a coma and with amnesia after coming out of the coma. They later chronicled their story in a book called “The Vow: The Kim and Krickitt Carpenter Story‘, and the film is based on their book.

CTU followed ‘The Vow‘ through filming, so fans can check out pics of Chan on the Toronto and Chicago sets, out and about, and taking photos with fans in the CTU Photo Gallery.

Although you have to wait a little while for ‘The Vow‘, Chan currently has two movies in theaters right now…the comedy ‘The Dilemma‘ and his Roman-era drama ‘The Eagle‘. Entertainment Weekly gave ‘The Eagle‘ a great review in their February 18, 2011 issue and even featured the film in their “Must List” in the February 25, 2011 issue. Check out both articles below, and if you haven’t already, make sure you go see ‘The Eagle‘…
