Time Traveler's Wife Date Moved to August 14

Hurray! Time Traveler's Wife Now Coming August '09!

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?

I love that book! I cried so much while reading it though so I'm a little anxious about re-visiting the story again. Hopefully, they will do it justice and will stick to the book's ending. Why does Rachel gotta take on these projects that me cry so much?? I can't bear to watch The Notebook ever again.

i adored the book. i am a passionate fan. i first read the book a few years ago when my husband was doing his second military tour of afghanistan (the first being before we met). i swear this book got me through so many lonely nights...haha, even though i was crying through a lot it! not only am i such a loyal fan but every single person who i've recc'd this book to since has adored it (male and female alike). it's definitely my favourite book and i'm actually kind of bracing myself for the movie to not be as good. i like bana, and rachel mcadams could do no wrong in my eyes (the girl's cute as a button and from my hometown!)...but i was lurking imdb a few months ago and it appears there has beensome distinct changes (won't spoil anything further). we'll see i guess. either way--excited to see it.

I loved the book and Rachel McAdams, so I was really excited for this...but I had no idea that Eric Bana was in it! He is such a hottie, I am SO HAPPY that I get to see more of him in this film!

I'm glad a date has finally been set, I miss seeing Rachel Mcadams on the big screen. This year will be a good year for her, she's got lots of good movies coming out with great male counterparts (Bana, Downey). Time Travelers Wife is one of her first romantic movies in a couple of years, since Notebook and Wedding Crashers.

I am super excited for this movie, so I'm definitely glad that it's coming out sooner. I'm a little cautious, though, because both February and August seem to be dumping grounds for not so great movies.

I was going to make a joke about how all the date shifting for the movie's release had something to do with the time traveling in the novel... but I got nothing. So I'm just going to say YAY for August 14, 2009!

Totally 100% with you. I check online at least once a week to see if trailers have been posted or a release date noted!!

I'm confused by Eric Bana. He is all over the place -- The Hulk, The Other Boelyn Girl, the Time Traveler's wife. Interesting side note: did you know his birth name is "Eric Banadinovich"

I'm there with you, too. Can't wait for this film! :) I don't know how much truth there is to this, but I read somewhere that it was delayed, because they decided to reshoot the ending. Apparently, they'd originally changed it from the book and that didn't go down well with the audience at test screenings. There was also something about having to wait for Eric Bana's hair to grow back before going bavk to shooting. Added to that, the studio also didn't want to release it around the same time as Benjamin Button, because of the similarities between the two (which I don't find all that big actually).

Yea I'm confused as to why they keep delaying the release of this film. I'm thinking it did not test well or something. This is one of my all time fav books and I can see it maybe being somewhat difficult to translate into film, but I'm looking forward to seeing it on the big screen.
