Just in case you guys got confused, that’s LIAM Hemsworth, not Chris Hemsworth of Thor fame (and hot bod fame). They’re brothers, though, so it’s easy to get confused. At any rate, Hemsworth #2 is starring in Timeless, another in an expanding array of romantic sci-fi movies about a guy who is haunted by the memory of his dead wife. However, she leaves him a fortune, so he decides to use the money to build a time machine to go back and visit her one last time.
I seriously don’t know where people come up with this stuff, but as much of a sci-fi fan as I am, and as much as I love time travel movies, the premise comes off so incredibly corny. It’s like some bastard child of The Time Machine meets The Time Traveler’s Wife… Oh yeah, and it’s being directed by Philip Noyce of Salt fame… or just Salt, I guess. Liam Hemsworth is also starring in The Hunger Games, which is set to be another Twilight Midnight Arousal or whatever. New Moon, Full Moon, Gibbous Moon, blah, blah. I just hope it’s as good as people seemed to enjoy the books. If not, well, I guess I’ll never read the books. As for Timeless, it probably won’t be timeless at all.[Via Collider]
