Trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green Starring Jennifer Garner
Posted 08.12.11 by Ryan
Disney has released the first trailer for its upcoming modern-day fable, The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Considering the movie won't be released until next summer, audiences will have plenty of time to digest the movie's fantastical storyline, based on an idea by Disney principal Ahmet Zappa, which concerns a couple who can't conceive a child but end up with one after burying a box of hopes of what their child might be in their back yard. It sounds considerably less weird in the movie's official synopsis.
Academy Award–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?) brings enchantment to the screen with The Odd Life of Timothy Green, an inspiring, magical story about a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim — and their small town of Stanleyville — learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green won't open until August 15, 2012, and co-stars Ron Livingston (Dinner for Schmucks), Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married) and Dianne Wiest (Rabbit Hole).
