Over at one of our favorite sites, Trailer Addict, they’ve got the new trailer for the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of The Time Travelers Wife. The film, which stars Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana, is based on the best selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger. The film was written by Bruce Joel Rubin and directed by Robert Schwentke.
In case you’re not familier with the story, it concerns a man (Bana) with a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel unpredictably. It’s also about his wife (McAdams), an artist who has to cope with his frequent absences and dangerous experiences. Through these experiences, this sci-fi romance examines issues of love, loss, and free will.
Of course, I’ve heard of the novel but have never read it. It didn’t seem like my kind of story. Seeing this trailer, however, makes me interested in the story and these characters. Maybe its time to give the novel a read? Or, I guess I could just wait for the movie.
The Time Travelers Wife opens later this year. Check out the full trailer after the break.
