Yahoo has released the second trailer for the upcoming Zac Efron film, Charlie St Cloud. We all know that the former child-star can sing and dance but can he bring the drama? Even though a lot of us would hate to admit it, he’s not a bad actor and he’s a lot more charismatic on screen than the other thespians in his age group. Check out the trailer…

Official Synopsis:

Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud has the adoration of his mother Claire and his little brother Sam, 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 returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with new found 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.

It looks like emotions will run high in this film with Efron stepping out of his comfort zone. It’s good to see him tackling some challenging material and it’s great to see Kim Basinger in the limelight again. She’s made appearances in some films over the past few years but nothing hugely marketed.

Charlie St. Cloud is directed by Ben Sherwood and hits theaters on July 30, 2010.
