Richard Curtis’ About Time is far and away the romantic comedy I’m most looking forward to seeing this year. Curtis has written some of the greatest films in the genre of all time, and made a brilliant directorial debut with Love Actually. So needless to say, I can’t wait to see his third feature behind the camera.
Last month brought with it a great first trailer, which was soon followed by a new Us trailer and the first poster. And now we’ve got the UK quad poster to share, which is similar to the American one-sheet, but also asks the question, ‘What if every moment in life came with a second chance?’
The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can’t change history, »

Trailer Score: 7/10
Thoughts by Tsr: This all feels quite familiar. First of all, Rachel McAdams has been demoted to playing a time traveler’s girlfriend. Time traveling Bill Nighy talking about killing Hitler shows that his character has seen every time travel story in the history of time travel stories. Plus, the basic concept just feels like so many things that have come before. And yet I can’t help but be won over by how darn charming Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams are together.
I don’t love all of it – boy did that line about McAdams putting on her pajamas so Gleeson could take them off make me cringe – but throughout most of the trailer they make a cute, charming couple. As much as I like McAdams, Gleeson is the big selling point for me. »

Two days ago we shared the first trailer and new stills from the upcoming time-travel comedy About Time, remember? Now it’s time for a brand new poster with Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson, who are obviously more than ready to teach us that time travel doesn’t come without consequences. Check them out below! Richard Curtis‘ latest flick is set to open on November 1st, 2013, and beside the above mentioned duo also stars Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander and Margot Robbie. The story revolves around Gleeson’s character Tim Lake who (on his 21st birthday) learns the family secret – all the males in their family are »

Some films come with their audiences already owning tickets, and Richard Curtis’ upcoming About Time is one of them. Just connecting Love Actually to the film is all you need, but then throw in Bill Nighy being endearing, and add the charm of Domhnall Gleeson, who seems to have been born from Curtis’ imagination, and this film is an absolute lock. At least, it looks that way from the trailer.
You think you can keep yourself from falling for this one, especially because “time travel” is featured prominently, but just give in now.

When I had first heard about Rachel McAdams and her time traveling beau in About Time I thought it sounded dangerously close to another movie she starred in, The Time Traveler’s Wife. Rest assured that this is more of a comedy like Groundhog Day except that rather than being trapped in a time loop, the time traveler in question (Domhnall Gleeson, Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1 and 2) is on a quest to get all the best moments, just right.

Anything with Bill Nighy is a must see in my book.

Well, if nothing else, it looks charming enough. It’s also from the people who gave us charming British romcoms like “Love Actually” and “Nottinghill”, so if those two films strike your fancy, I suspect Richard Curtis’ “About Time” will tickle those same funny bones. The fact that it co-stars the lovely Rachel McAdams certainly doesn’t hurt. Honestly, if you don’t like McAdams, you must be some pinko commie. She’s impossible not to like, even when she was being mean to Lindsay Lohan. Check out a new, domestic trailer for “About Time”, the time-traveling movie that isn’t really sci-fi. At the age of 21, Tim is told an incredible family secret by his father – that all the men in his family have the ability to travel in time. He can relive any moment in his life to try things differently until he gets them perfectly right. “About Time” also stars Bill Nighy, »
Rachel McAdams used to be the cool best friend of women everywhere, and we're hoping that the trailer for "About Time" will remind everyone of her rightful place in our hearts. It's quite appropriate that the movie that will help her achieve this is written and directed by Richard Curtis, the fellow behind of the most beloved modern romcoms, "Love Actually." Domhnall Gleeson plays Tim, a regular, awkward dude who inherits the rare talent of time travel when he turns 21. As his dad explains, it's passed down through the men in their family. (The fabulous Bill Nighy, who was also in "Love Actually," plays his pops.) This gives him the ability to both rectify events from his past and complicate his future. Naturally, he meets an adorable woman named Mary (McAdams!) and things get super wonky because, hello, the butterfly effect! Gleeson's character definitely has the floppy-haired awkward Hugh Grant thing happening, »

Here are the first trailers for Richard Curtis' new romantic comedy About Time. The time travel film stars Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander and Margot Robbie. The movie looks absolutely charming, and I'm looking forward to seeing it. Here's a detailed synopsis for the film,
At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time...
The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's father (Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can't change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life—so he decides to make his world a better place...by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think.

Yes, it’s probably due to be another cheese-fest from the pen of Richard Curtis but I’m hoping in some strange awkward British way, and yes I’m British, that About Time will have that usual charm that Curtis tends to find in the strangest and usually unexpected places. It’s not quite the giant ensemble cast of recent outings, but it’s still got the young rising star of the moment Domhnall Gleeson alongside Rachel McAdams – who I wouldn’t kick out of bed for eating biscuits – and Bill Nighy, being his usual quirky self.
They’re definitely explaining that there’s a big focus on time-travel and trying to get things right for About Time, if you haven’t seen the trailer yet then click here to sort that problem out immediately. After you’ve done that, or before if you wish, scroll down for the poster »

It looks like "The Time Taveler's Wife" wasn't enough for Rachel McAdams. She's got a new movie that finds her being romanced by yet another time traveler. This one seems a bit more lighthearted, though.
In "About Time," Domhnall Gleeson plays a man who finds out that men in his family can travel through time. He uses his power to win over a girl, McAdams' character, but accidentally erases his own timeline. From that point forward he has to try to win her over once again.
"About Time" is written and directed by Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Notting Hill" and "War Horse") and also features Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander and Vanessa Kirby. It's currently scheduled for theaters on November 1. »

"...the night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, the father (Nighy) of 'Tim' (Gleeson) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim finds out that his unique gift can't save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. There are great limits to what time travel can achieve, and it can be dangerous too..."

Rachel McAdams is certainly geting to know a thing or two about time travel. Having already starred in The Time Traveler's Wife, the actress will soon be seen in the upcoming romance, About Time, which involves, well, you know. In the film, we find a young man named Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) who learns from his dad (Bill Nighy) that the men in his family have the ability to travel back in time. Tim immediately opts to use said power to find (what else?) love. Enter McAdams. Naturally, things don't exactly go as smoothly as planned at first, but we're guessing it'll all turn out just fine in the end. Written and directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually), About Time »
The first trailer for Richard Curtis’ About Time debuted first thing this morning, and it gave us an absolutely brilliant first look at the upcoming romantic comedy, coming from arguably one of the greatest, and certainly most widely-seen, British filmmakers of all time.
Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams take the lead for Curtis this time around. And following on brilliantly from the first UK comes the first Us trailer via Yahoo Movies, along with the film’s first poster.
At the age of 21, Tim is told an incredible family secret by his father: all the men in his family have the ability to relive their past. He can revisit any moment in his life to try things differently until he gets them perfectly right.
He decides to use his special new gift to win the heart of the beautiful Mary, but finds that the course of true love can be »

The new trailer for time-travel romance "About Time" from director Richard Curtis ("Love Actually") has landed, co-starring Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson as the space-time-crossed lovers. Tellingly, the film marks up-and-comer Gleeson's first leading role; the actor has previously shone in supporting roles in the "Harry Potter" franchise (as Bill Weasley), "Anna Karenina" and "Never Let Me Go." It also marks McAdams return to time-traveling lovers, following 2009's "The Time Traveler's Wife." "About Time" centers on bumbling Brit Tim (Gleeson), who's informed by his father (Bill Nighy) that the men in his family can travel backward and forward through the years, if given a dark space and appropriate amounts of concentration time. When Tim falls in love with Mary (McAdams), he starts using his powers to re-do things, like the first time the couple had sex. Needless to say, things go a bit berserk. Watch below. »
