Trailer and Poster for Still Creepy-Looking Disney Film THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN

     August 9, 2011

We posted this trailer yesterday but Disney asked us to take it down because it was “incorrect”.  Today it’s up on Yahoo! Movies and it’s almost exactly the same so here’s what I wrote yesterday:  The trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green stars out innocently enough.  Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton play a couple who are unable to conceive a child.  They write down their hopes and dreams for the child they’ll never have, put the writing in a box, and bury the box in their backyard.  In the middle of the night, they awaken to find a dirt-covered young boy in their house and he’s calling them “mom and dad.”  If that actually happened, you would not be uplifted.  You would be freaked out beyond all reason.  Furthermore, we’re now going to have scores of child molesters burying their wish lists and hoping for a case of sprouted boy.  Is that what you want The Odd Life of Timothy Green?  IS IT?

If you missed the trailer yesterday you can check it out after the jump along with the poster.  Watch the trailer and be horrified with me.  The Odd Life of Timothy Green is set to open August 15, 2012 and believe me, I question the wisdom of running a trailer for a movie that’s over a year away.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Odd Life of Timothy Green:

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.

When young Timothy suddenly comes into the lives of Cindy and Jim Green, they learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
