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.
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, but he can change what happens and »

What if you could relive any moment until it was perfect? This is the question at the center of writer-director Richard Curtis's latest romantic comedy, which boasts a clever sci-fi twist. This time round, the mind behind such winsome romances as Love Actually, Notting Hill, and Four Weddings and a Funeral centers his love story on a gawky 21-year-old man named Tim (Anna Karenina's Domhnall Gleeson), whose just learned that his unique DNA allows him to time travel at will. In the recently released international trailer, Tim's father (Love Actually's Bill Nighy) explains that you can't do anything grandiose like "kill Hitler or shag Helen of Troy." But you can relive little moments, getting a second chance at that flubbed flirtation or nailing that perfect first date. (In both ways that can be taken.) So, Tim decides to use his newfound powers to win the girl of »
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. »

In About Time, Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter’s Bill Weasley) stars as Tim, a young man whose father (played by Bill Nighy) informs him that the men in their family have a very special talent. Give these guys a dark space and let them really concentrate, and they can travel through time. The trick is how much and for what they use their gift. And after Tim falls »

Just moments after making out with Ryan Gosling in the rain in "The Notebook," Rachel McAdams became America's romantic comedy queen. Since that 2004 film, McAdams has starred in a handful of screen romances, including popular box office hits like "Wedding Crashers" and "The Vow." Now, McAdams gets to revisit one of her misses, "The Time Traveler's Wife," in the time-traveling romance "About Time," a.k.a. "The Time Traveler's Girlfriend" a.k.a. "This One Uses That Of Monsters and Men Song and Stars Bill Weasley."
Written and directed by romantic comedy kingpin Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," the scripts for "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Notting Hill" and "Bridget Jones' Diary"), "About Time" tells the story of Tim (Domhnall Gleeson, who played Bill in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2"), a young man with the ability to travel back in time to revisit and correct awkward romantic moments in his life. »

It's looking suspiciously like another screen wedding...
We'll see if the man also responsible for much of 'Blackadder', the screenplay for 'Bridget Jones' - not to forget his tireless efforts for Comic Relief - has still got his golden touch when his new film 'About Time' appears in cinemas in September this year.

Alice Eve used to just be out of your league, but now she's out of your galaxy, man.
Yes, the striking blonde whose sudden bra-and-underwear appearance in the "Star Trek Into Darkness" trailer may have given you whiplash from running the YouTube scrollbar back so quickly (to find the hidden link to the posters, of course) has noted babe qualities, having starred in 2010's "She's Out of My League" with Jay Baruchel and played movie star Vince's future wife on HBO's "Entourage." However, that glimpse of skin you catch in the trailer is about all you get — Eve's character, Dr. Carol Marcus, is a science officer on board the Enterprise, and, refreshingly, does not serve as anyone's love interest.
We caught up with Eve before this week's release of the film to talk Trekkies, geekery and bromances.
Are you a Trekkie?
I am now.

After writing the pretty much straight forward romantic comedies Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, and Love Actually, Richard Curtis is throwing time travel into the mix for his thrid directorial outing (after The Boat That Rocked, and Love Actually) About Time. Domhall Gleeson stars as a young man who finds out he has inherited his father's (Bill Nighy) ability to time travel, and the first thing he uses it for is to get a girlfriend (Rachel McAdams, who, with this and The Time Travellers Wife, has the monopoly on romantic time travel movies). I think this looks really good. I like how it hints that the father/son relationship might be just as important as the romantic one, and it has a very funny and clever twist on the mechanics of travelling through time. It is a tricky concept to pull off, but by keeping it simple, Curtis may just get it right. »

Time travel is a nifty narrative device that many a filmmaker has employed. Offering up the chance to greater explore human behaviour and the nature of serendipity, traveling through time has cropped up across a multitude of genres. Now Richard Curtis is having a bash in his latest romance, About Time. The first trailer has arrived and is available to view below.
A romantic drama with a twist, About Time tells the story of Tim, played by Domhnall Gleeson. Tim learns from his father a secret about the men in their family: they all have the ability to time travel. Following his father’s instructions, Tim goes about reliving moments in his life to direct the outcome in his favour. When he meets Rachel McAdams’ Mary, he gets more than one shot at a good first impression.
From the looks of the trailer, About Time pulls no punches and delivers what you’d expect. »

"I hope I see you again?" "You will. My whole life depends on it." Wow this looks amazing. I'm a sucker for a heartfelt, wonderful Richard Curtis story and this time he's outdone himself. Curtis' latest is a film called About Time, a love story about a man who learns he can time travel and uses that to go back and get things right in his life. It has a feeling of Notting Hill meets Groundhog Day, but with all of its own quirks. Mainly that Domhnall Gleeson stars along with Rachel McAdams. There are so many wonderful, sweet, funny, nervous moments in this trailer. I cannot wait to see this. Everything I was hoping for and so much to love. Watch the first international teaser trailer for Richard Curtis' About Time, originally from MSN UK: Love doesn’t always go to plan, but imagine you had a way to redo all your mistakes? »

The 'R.I.P.' hitmaker took to the stage to perform a raunchy version of 'Happy Birthday' at party planner Fran Cutler's surprise 50th birthday celebrations, with guests at London's The Box nightspot including the sports agent, who she has recently been romantically linked with. However, despite their rumoured closeness, Rita and Dave stayed apart for the evening, with the singer arriving late with close friend Cara Delevingne, while Dave was hanging out with pals including Jack Whitehall, Nick Grimshaw and Pixie Geldof. Rita's wasn't the only performance of the evening, Fran's best friend Kate Moss introduced a set from Primal Scream, and 'Notting Hill' »
Picture this recap starting with confetti and a noisemaker and maybe even a small brass band. 'Cause Deacon And Rayna Did It, Y’All! And they didn’t just do it, they were all honest and raw and full of emotions and stuff. At one point, Rayna practically re-created Julia Roberts’s “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love me” speech from Notting Hill. Oh, as the kids say, the feels.Of course, this was not before the show presented us with the ultimate misdirection in the form of sexy, sexy Liam, being his devastatingly sexy self. “I just want to live in the moment,” Rayna told Liam, as they set up a little last-minute recording session. “I feel freer than I ever have.” And this was Liam’s cue to reach over and kiss her — they allegedly went to “second base” according to Rayna, »

Victoria Beckham and David Beckham had a full schedule over the past few days with their little ones in London. Victoria brought her oldest child, Brooklyn Beckham, and parents Jackie and Tony Adams along Saturday to attend British Vogue's Vogue Festival in London. On Monday, David carried Harper through Notting Hill, and even encountered designer Stella McCartney during the sunny stroll. At the Vogue Festival, Posh was one of many speakers to have a public conversation with the magazine's editor in chief, Alexandra Shulman. Victoria spoke about her growing Victoria Beckham brands, the possibility of one day moving her shows from New York Fashion Week to London's, and how family is her top consideration. She told the crowd, "My children are my priority and always have been. I'm up early in the morning, doing spelling tests and maths quizzes before the school run, then up late with a baby and »

Time Out has put its heart on its sleeve and shouted its Brief Encounter infatuation from the rooftops. Will you join them in their lovebombing of the 68-year-old classic? Or have your tastes in romantic movies moved on?
Sam played it again, now it's our turn to plug in the turntable and petition you once more for your top romance films of all time. The peg? Time Out's 100 Most Romantic Films of all Time poll, which has been announced today, and which names Brief Encounter as the title most likely to get your heart a-flutter.
But by our reckoning, the Time Out folk are cruising for a bruising; when we came to the same conclusion three years ago, the readers felt we'd done them wrong, and suggested Casablanca was Mr Right when it came to romantic movies.
Do you feel the same? Has your taste for gin joints endured over the past three years? »
Some movies are constantly caught in a struggle between the good and the bad, and for cinema fans, these types of flick will prove themselves to be the most frustrating – there’s nothing less fun than a movie that forces you to constantly weigh things over in your head as you desperately try to tell yourself that you’re having a good time…
In most cases, the good will ultimately outweigh the bad, and you’ll leave the movie theatre feeling like you – at least – got your money’s worth. But sometimes things go the other way, especially when you find yourself suddenly watching a scene that completely tips the hat in a truly irreparable fashion.
Here’s 10 seriously misjudged scenes that – had they simply been removed or tweaked slightly – might’ve helped these movies towards a far better reception. In other cases, they’re just irksome moments that don »

New York, Apr 20: George Clooney, Ryan Gosling and Charlie Rose are the most polite Hollywood stars, while Hugh Grant and Lindsay Lohan are the most ill mannered, according to website 'Right or Rude'.
Carole Holmes Delouvrier, a former TV producer and site founder, asserted that Grant was a bully so Jon Stewart banned him from 'The Daily Show' for bossing around the staff offstage, the New York Post reported.
Delouvrier claimed that the 'Notting Hill' actor could probably learn a few things from Clooney who "could do no wrong." (Ani) »

Squirming through the Tom Cruise sci-fi vehicle Oblivion, I flashed back to Notting Hill, in which Julia Roberts plays a superstar visiting London to promote some deadly outer-space epic with white-on-white sets and a sleep-inducing hum. Oblivion is like that movie-within-a-movie: Everything in it feels 100 percent inauthentic. That vibe, as it happens, turns out to be intentional. But when the humans arrive, it’s still a narcotic.The pity is that the film is about the war to liberate the human spirit from alien soul-snuffing exploiters and that Cruise is supposed to be our last best hope. In the long opening voice-over, his character, Jack (not Reacher), explains that “Scavengers” obliterated humankind: They blew up the moon and Nature did the rest. Humans beat the invaders back and then took off en masse to colonize a moon of Saturn, Titan. But a few people stayed behind to harvest the remaining »

A compilation film of Pathé newsreel clips from 1920 to 1972 captures Britain's complex relationship with the Caribbean culture of the time
'It is interesting to know that nine tons of sugar cane produce one ton of sugar, sufficient for a quarter of a million cups of tea, or thereabouts." The awfully proper tones that impart this particular nugget belong to Bob Danvers-Walker, for years the narrator of Pathé newsreels. Surely also the model for Harry Enfield's Mr Cholmondley-Warner, he may not be familiar by name, but the voice is instantly evocative: the clipped precision, the jauntiness, the terrible puns. His unique delivery is the unlikely star of a curious and compelling new film, which takes the curatorial art of the compilation album and applies it winningly to the moving image.
With a touch of Danvers-Walker formality to its title, Mirror to the Soul: Music, Culture and Identity in the Caribbean »

Anna Friel admits having a child from a previous relationship can sometimes make her romance with Rhys Ifans 'problematic'. The 36-year-old star has a daughter - Gracie, seven - from her time with David Thewlis and revealed she thinks her newer relationship of two years finds a balance between the hardships and 'glorious' times. Speaking to the Sunday Times newspaper's Style magazine, she said: 'Well, I am the mother of a child that isn't his, and of course the situation can be problematic. 'But he has his own place in Notting Hill that he can go to and it is what it is. All you can ever do is do your best. 'Sometimes it is not plain sailing and at »
