World Premiere of “The Time Traveler’s Wife” Wednesday, August 12. Eric Bana, Rachel McAdams, Ron Livingston and Alex Ferris, director Robert Schwentke, screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin, producers Dede Gardner and Nick Wechsler. Other celebrity guests to be announced shortly.
“The Time Traveler’s Wife” is based on the best-selling book about a love that transcends time. Clare (Rachel McAdams) has been in love with Henry (Eric Bana) her entire life. She believes they are destined to be together, even though she never knows when they will be separated: Henry is a time traveler—cursed with a rare genetic anomaly that causes him to live his life on a shifting timeline, skipping back and forth through the years with no control. Despite the fact that Henry’s travels force them apart with no warning, Clare desperately tries to build a life with her one true love.
Most studios passed on Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick-Ass” at the script stage, but now some seem to want another look at the adaptation of the Mark Millar comicbook.
Vaughn, who co-wrote, directed and produced (along with partners like Brad Pitt), unveiled a few “Kick-Ass” clips at Comic-Con last week, and the fanboys went nuts over what they saw, giving it a standing ovation.
“I was asked to show the footage twice,” Vaughn marveled.
Studios and other distribs will get a peek at the rough cut of “Kick-Ass” today at a private unspooling at the DGA in Hollywood.
Vaughn, who privately funded the pic about teenagers who want to be superheroes, gets why he didn’t initially get a greenlight from U.S. distribs. “The script broke every taboo known to man,” the helmer said, but he “had fun with it.”
