Below is our first look at Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana in The Time Traveler's Wife. The film is directed by Flightplan director Robert Schwentke and adapted from a novel by Audrey Niffenegger of the same name. In The Time Traveler's Wife, Eric Bana plays Henry De Tamble, a Chicago librarian with a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel when he is stressed. Though he disappears often for long periods of time, he tries to build a romantic relationship with artist Clare Abshire, played by McAdams. I'll admit, I had not heard of this movie until I saw these photos. And I'll also admit, now I'm interested. Partially because of how gorgeous Rachel McAdams is, and partially because of the intriguing plot.
Thanks to gossip blog Just Jared for originally posting the photos.
Does this sound like a funny mix of Jumper and The Time Machine to anyone else? Not that it is, but just on the surface it does. Unless the trailer shows something different, I'm definitely into this.
The Time Traveler's Wife is directed by German filmmaker Robert Schwentke of The Family Jewels and Flightplan previously. The film is written by Jeremy Leven (The Legend of Bagger Vance, The Notebook) and Bruce Joel Rubin (Jacob's Ladder, Deep Impact, The Last Mimzy) and adapted from the novel by Audrey Niffenegger. The Time Traveler's Wife doesn't have a release date yet, but is expected to arrive in theaters sometime in 2008.

User comment: By: BrianIt sounds like the TV show Journey Man was based on the book then. Interesting.
User comment: By: sixthsounds interesting...cant get enough of Rachel McAdams...great actress...wish she was in more films.
User comment: By: chrisIf the film stays true to the story in the book it will be a great film...hopefully they will keep the same themes and ideas and make a good drama, and not dilute it into another rom-com.
