The first trailer has been released for the Sean McNamara biopic Soul Surfer. Much like 127 Hours this film is based on actual events that center on a young person who loses a limb while participating in what’s supposed to be a fun activity. The movie stars AnnaSophia Rob as the title character, and also features Carrie Underwood in her feature film debut.

Is it just us or are they purposely hiding the shots of Hamilton’s missing arm? We’re actually interested in how they’re going to portray that on film. What type of effects can they use to remove it? We’ve seen paparazzi shots of the actress wearing a green sleeve, which we’re assuming was for the CGI.

The overall quality of the trailer makes it look like a made for TV movie, and the fact that Kevin Sorbo is in it doesn’t add to its credibility. We mean that in the nicest possible way. (He was awesome as Hercules!).

The film also stars Dennis Quaid, Helen Hunt, and Jeremy Sumpter. It’s scheduled to hit theaters on April 8.
