The Time Machine Movie


Genre: Science Fiction

The Time Machine is a 2002 science fiction film directed by Simon Wells as a remake of The Time Machine (1960), and starring Guy Pearce, Jeremy Irons, Orlando Jones, Samantha Mumba, Mark Addy, Sienna Guillory, and Phyllida Law with a cameo by Alan Young from the earlier film. Like the original film, this movie is loosely based on the 1895 novel The Time Machine by H. G. Wells.

Alexander Hartdegen is a young scientist who lives in 1899 New York City. Obsessed with the idea of time travel and convinced that it is theoretically possible, he teaches at Columbia University as a professor of "Applied Mechanics and Engineering" and often gets into trouble for his free-thinking, radical theories. It is also stated that he was a pen pal of Albert Einstein. As Alexander rushes to the park to meet with his girlfriend Emma, he pauses to buy flowers; however, this notion is soon lost when he becomes embroiled and excited about an early motor car which has pulled up beside the park gates. He puts himself in immediate good fortune with the driver who, while refueling, forgot to activate the parking brake – something Alexander does quickly when it threatens to shoot off, out of control.
