Trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Posted on August 9, 2011

Here is the trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green, starring Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Ron Livingston, and Common. A childless couple write down all the characteristics of their perfect child and bury the lists in a box in the yard. In the middle of the night a boy shows up, covered in dirt calling them mom and dad. Apparently, they've grown a child in the garden by magic. At this point, we're thinking it's a horror movie and the kid is going to become some kind of supernatural serial killer. But then we saw that it's a Disney film, so that can't be what's going on here. But what is this kid? And what happens to him when he's achieved all the goals on the lists? Does he die? We are worried that he is just here to teach life lessons then disappear or something.

The director is Peter Hedges, who wrote What's Eating Gilbert Grape and About a Boy and directed Dan in Real Life. The release date is August 15, 2012, and we have no idea why we are getting the trailer a year early. Take a look:
