Once upon a time, I naively believed The Time Traveler's Wife was going to be released in late December of 2008. So I anxiously awaited a trailer for this adaptation of one of my favorite books. And the trailer never came. Then: Disaster! The release date was apparently (and quietly) pushed back — way back — to February 2010. This drastic move combined with no news about the project made me concerned that something was amiss.
Just as I was working on readjusting my high expectations to a lower, more manageable level, more news: The movie now has an August 14, 2009 release date. I don't know what to think or expect from all this date-shifting! I just know that I would love to see a trailer one of these days.
Maybe the studio is simply struggling to find the perfect weekend for unleashing this love story starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana. I don't know. I'm bewildered, but I'm going to just take this new release date as a positive sign and hope for the best. What do you think? Are you laughing at me because of my intense passion for this movie, or are you right there with me?
