The Odd Life Of Timothy Green Trailer
He's a force of nature...

The Odd Life of Timothy Green posits a very different answer to the question of what a childless couple would do if they had tried everything to conceive without success. Instead of going down the adoption or fostering route (or, say, getting a dog), the film finds Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton writing all their wishes for their dream kid on pieces of paper and, er, burying them in a box in the backyard. Can you guess what happens next? Even if not, the trailer provides the answer below.

We’re pretty certain co-writer/director Peter Hedges and co-writer Ahmet Zappa were aiming for a uplifting, cockle-warming family fantasy confection, but this trailer, even with the charm-heavy presence of Edgerton and Garner, has moments that feel almost more like a horror movie.

After all, how would you react if a lad, who had seemingly crawled out of the ground, arrived at your back door one night covered in mud and started calling you mum and dad? Chances are it would not end in a mug of cocoa and a round of hugs, but a swift summoning of the local constabulary…

Still, we’re sure as we see more footage, the heartstring-tugging moments will become clear.

Disney hasn’t set an official UK release date for this one just yet, though it’s likely to arrive next year.
