On Wednesday, August 12, two days before it opens wide in theaters, "The Time Traveler's Wife" got a red carpet treatment at the Big Apple as Warner Bros. Pictures threw a world premiere event for the romantic drama in Ziegfeld Theatre. Before the special screening took place at 7:00 P.M., a number of celebrities were spotted posing for the press at the red carpet.
Among those present were the film's leading actors, Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams. Bana was seen arriving along with his wife Rebecca Gleeson. Joining them were Ron Livingston who plays Gomez, Jane McLean who portrays Charisse, and the young cast members, Hailey McCann, Tatum McCann and Brooklynn Proulx.
Beside the cast ensemble, director Robert Schwentke and writer Bruce Joel Rubin were also captured posing at the red carpet with some of the cast attending. Brad Pitt, who serves as the film's executive producer, also came out to show his support. A day earlier, on Tuesday, August 11, he attended the Hollywood premiere of his other feature project "Inglourious Basterds". Other guests included singer Erika Jayne and "My Sister's Keeper" executive producer Toby Emmerich.
Picking up the theme that love knows no boundaries and transcends time and death, "The Time Traveler's Wife" follows Clare and Henry as they get into a passionate love affair. Having known Henry since she was six years old, Clare learns from the very beginning that Henry is a time traveler and waits for the right time to build a romantic relationship with him.
But, marrying Henry isn't as easy as it looks since he often disappears for long periods of time and thus complications are bound to follow. Based on Audrey Niffenegger's 2003 novel, this romantic drama is coming out in theaters across the U.S. this coming Friday, August 14.
