While the bad news is that the recently released extended ad for The Odd Life of Timothy Green is not much more than a pared-down version of the most recent trailer, the good news is that the marketing machine is getting behind the film which could very easily resonate with audiences as the live-action feel-good type of family movie Disney occasionally becomes synonymous with.
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 sprouts into theaters on August 15, 2012.
