A Few New Lovely Photos from The Time Traveler's Wife

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.
