A Few New Lovely Photos from The Time Traveler's Wife
by Alex Billington
April 20, 2009
The very last time we even mentioned The Time Traveler's Wife was in February of last year, and before that, our only other feature was written in January of 2008, when we first debuted some photos. What I'm trying to say is that its been a long time since we've seen anything, however, Warner Brothers is confident that they'll finally get it out in theaters this year with a locked release date. As part of their summer preview, they've debuted a batch of new photos from the film, which I've decided to feature today as a way of reminding everyone that The Time Traveler's Wife does still exist and will hopefully be out this year.
The Time Traveler's Wife is one of those poor films that got caught up in distribution hell. It was originally a New Line Cinema release, first slated for mid-2008, but then they shut down and Warner Brothers took over, but since it wasn't their film, they didn't know what to do with it, and it has been delayed ever since.
This is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble (Eric Bana), a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire (Rachel McAdams), an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap. The story told is a test of love, and patience. It shows that love knows no boundaries and transcends time and death.
The Time Traveler's Wife is directed by German filmmaker Robert Schwentke, of Tattoo, The Family Jewels and Flightplan previously. The screenplay was written by Bruce Joel Rubin, of Ghost, Jacob's Ladder, Deep Impact, Stuart Little 2 and The Last Mimzy previously. This was adapted from Audrey Niffenegger's novel of the same name. Originally a New Line Cinema release, now a Warner Brothers release, The Time Traveler's Wife is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters starting on August 14th later this summer.

I read the plot summary for this on wikipedia (yeah I know, it ruined it, but I don't have the time to read it now, or for the forseeable future) and it sounds excellent. And plus I will try and see any Rachel Weisz/Rachel McAdams movies as both these beautiful actresses are just amazing.

Good looking pics! I like all three of these! I'm glad to see Bana coming up from his last wash - "Lucky You" which no cared for.... Such a shame too. Cause I like Hanson, Barrymore and Bana.

Really looking forward to this, loved Bana in Troy and Rachel in Notebook.

mcadams said it was delayed due to a couple of minor reshoots with bana, and waiting for his schedule to clear up and hair to grown back after shooting star trek 90210. not sure why it was impossible to use a wig, but okay. apparently the script focuses more on the relationship than the time travel, which seems to be the most difficult part for a lot of casual readers to accept. i thought the book was one of the most tightly written, passionate, complete novels i've ever read and i cannot recommend it enough.

One of my favourite books, I definitely recommend it to others. Stunning, original and sincere.

This is one of the greatest books I have ever read. It's been about three maybe four years since, but it still resonates with me. I have high hopes for the movie, being a fan of Bana and McAdams. Hopefully the trailer will come out so we can get a taste of the film! Cheers!

FINALLY! This movie has taken so long to put together! Hooray for one of the best books around making it to the big screen!

I have been waiting for this movie to come out ever since I heard they were making it into a movie. It was one of th ebest books I have ever read, and I have never been so excited for a move release!

This was the best book I've read in maybe 10 years. I was literally sobbing out loud during the final pages and got the strangest looks from my husband and child. The last I heard of the movie, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had bought the rights before their split. (I was kinda hoping he'd play Henry.) Then I heard nothing about it since. Today I unexpectedly came upon the fact that it was ready for release while reading another article on Bana. (If it couldn't be brad, Eric is certainly a great choice. Ive loved him since he played Hector, OMG) Now with summer just looking like it may finally appear, I want it to pass quickly so I can see this movie. I can't wait and am frankly surprised that this has not gotten any press. I've heard nothing on ET or anywhere else. AUGUST HURRY UP AND GET HERE!!!!

This was by far one of the best books I've ever read. I was sobbing out loud at the end, just like Tracy and I really hope this movie does the book justice!

Loved the book! The movie scares me. Where is Kimy and Ingrid in the cast? Kimy is who always helped pull Henry and Clare through hard times and how can you have the movie without Ingrid? I hope the movie does the book justice. Excellent book Audrey!

i've read the book about 5 times and would obviously recommend it to anyone. very intricate and compelling. as for the movie, i'm too excited i think. whenever i get too excited about a book, the movie is a letdown. without ingrid i'm afraid the contrast will be lost for how perfect clare and henry are together. and what's with ron livingston playing gomez? i like livingston but gomez is a big blonde polish dude. he doesn't fit my vision at all.

The book is #1 on my list. Me and Henry are exactly alike. Not with the Time traveling thingy. Lol. Read the Book and be moved. About the movie? Well. Eric, I think, will be perfect for Henry. Rachel? Well, I'll just wait for the Movie! Niffenegger Rocks!
