The official poster and trailer for The Time Traveler’s Wife, starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, has been released by New Line Cinema. The story, which is part sci-fi part romance, features Bana and McAdams as a husband and wife whose marriage is on the rocks due to Bana’s inability to stop himself from traveling through time.
Take a look at the poster after the jump…
Because I am a loyal and loving boyfriend, I often find myself stuck watching a number of bad romantic comedies and sappy dramas. Usually during these times, I let my mind wander onto more exciting topics like: Who will play the Green Lantern? Will we get to see another Christopher Nolan-directed Batman film? And so on and so forth.
The Time Traveler’s Wife, however, with its quality talent and unconventional plot, seemed like it could be okay. Unfortunately, the film’s poster doesn’t leave much to be desired. It just seems so… generic. Couldn’t we get something with a little more pizazz? This is a movie about a man who travels through time after all. The trailer did little to ease my reservations. It seems very heavy on romance and very light on sci-fi. Check it out for yourself below.

I like Eric Bana, and Rachel McAdams is one of my favorite current Hollywood actresses, but that trailer was boring with a capital B. Hopefully there will be another trailer which addresses some of the sci-fi elements of this story a little more clearly. Then again, maybe I’m just being too harsh? I haven’t read the book on which the movie is based, so if anyone out there has and wants to offer a different opinion, please feel free to leave a comment.
The Time Traveler’s Wife is slated for release on August 14, 2009.
