Who can get enough of Rachel McAdams? I certainly can’t. Ever since she stole our hearts in Wedding Crashers — yes, I realize that she really stole hearts with The Notebook, but I need to look manly here so just go with it (I’ve got a rep to uphold) — she’s been able to light up just about any screen she’s on, even my elderly neighbor’s old black and white console TV.
And even though we’re counting down the days until we get Ms. McAdams in here corset in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, she does have a few other projects in the works for 2009. One is The Time Traveler’s Wife, in which she stars alongside Eric Bana. Based on a popular novel by Audrey Niffenegger, it tells the story of an adventurous librarian (Bana) who travels involuntarily through time and his relationship with the woman that he loves, an artist (McAdams) whose life must be lived in its natural order. And as you can see in the trailer — which in my opinion probably shows too much — its all about the epic highs and lows of any great love story. The film appears to be a dash of sci-fi added to a big stew of romance — a recipe for a solid date night if I’ve ever seen one.
Have a look at the trailer below, courtesy of Warner Bros. and Yahoo Movies. The Time Traveler’s Wife hits theaters on August 14, 2009.
