'Jackie & Ryan' Starring Katherine Heigl & Ben Barnes Offers A Sweet Alternative To Summer's Superhero Sequels — EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
With a summer jammed pack of action movies, superhero sequels, and green screen special effects, every once and I while I'm aching for a little shift in the monotony. Luckily, there's Jackie & Ryan starring Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes — a simpler, sweeter film about music and romance — no CGI superheroes included. The film centers around a modern day vagabond (Barnes) who hops trains and lives wherever the railways take him. He's trying to make it as a successful musician but is struggling to find a steady gig. When he meets a single mother (Heigl) who is battling to maintain custody of her only child, the pair come together in an unlikely way.
And this isn't the first time these two actors have teamed up together. Both Heigl and Barnes appeared in 2013's The Big Wedding, so it's fun to see the duo reunited on the big screen again. In this exclusive clip from the film, we get a taste for Barnes' character's life on the tracks, as well as his impressive talent in the recording studio.
The romantic drama hits theaters and On Demand July 3rd. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below:
