The world premiere of The Time Traveler’s Wife was held last night, August 12th, at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City.
Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana were both in attendance, as was Brad Pitt, the executive producer of the movie. Ironically – the author of The Time Traveler’s Wife, Bruce Joel Rubin had Brad Pitt and then wife, Jennifer Aniston in mind when writing the screenplay.
“I thought Brad and Jennifer would be perfect for this film. I just saw them as a perfect version of Henry and Clare. I just found them equally attractive and equally compelling and in terms of the Hollywood arena at that time, they were as good a couple as you could find.
“I was writing it in my mind for them.”
The Time Traveler’s Wife stars Eric Bana as Henry DeTamble an adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time and Rachel McAdams as his wife Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. The movie is based on the best selling novel of the same name in which Henry and Clare’s marriage survives despite the obvious complications in their lives.
The movie opens nationwide on Friday.
