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 »

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, »

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. »
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.

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. »

Upon turning 21 years of age, Tim is told by his father (Bill Nighy) that all the men in his family have the ability to travel through time. While he can't change events in world history, he can alter what has happened in his own life, so he decides to use this gift to find a girlfriend. When he meets the insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams), they fall in love, only to have a time-travel mishap completely erase their first meeting, causing Tim to try and make her fall for him again and again. Universal Pictures has also provided us with the first poster and three photos from this romantic comedy, directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually).
About Time - Trailer
Would you travel through time if you knew that you could possibly win Rachel McAdams’ heart through your efforts? That’s a no-brainer. It’s also the premise of director Richard Curtis’ next romantic comedy, About Time, which boasts a clever sci-fi twist as it also reunites him with his Love Actually scene stealer, Bill Nighy. The actor plays a father who holds a unique secret. The men in his family all have the ability to travel through time. And he’s passing this “talent” on to his 21-year-old son (Anna Karenina co-star Domhnall Gleeson) … who is going to use it to win over McAdams. Good man. Here’s the first full trailer for About Time, courtesy of...

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 »

The plot for Tom Cruise's All You Need is Kill sounds a lot like Bill Murray's Groundhog's Day, just as does the synopsis for About Time from Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Pirate Radio), which features Domhnall Gleeson as Tim, a 21-year-old who learns the ability to time travel is in his genes. Tim decides to use his newfound power to land a girlfriend (Rachel McAdams), but he soon finds himself in a perpetual time travel loop and continues to play their first meeting over and over again. Today an international trailer for the film, which also stars Curtis regular Bill Nighy, has arrived and can be seen below. About Time will hit UK theaters on September 6 and arrive in the U.S. two months later in a limited November 1 release, expanding on November 8. Check out the trailer below. »

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.

Working Title has released the first trailer for director Richard Curtis’ (Love Actually) new film About Time. The pic puts a time travel spin on the classic romantic comedy conceit, as Domnhall Gleeson (Bill Weasley from Harry Potter) plays a man who has inherited the ability to travel through time from his father (Bill Nighy). Naturally, Gleeson’s character uses his time travel prowess to woo the girl of his dreams (Rachel McAdams), but as with all time travel stories, the powers come with grave consequences. Curtis has a knack for making familiar stories interesting and endearing, and About Time looks to be no different. I like the earnestness with which the film is approached, and Gleeson seems poised to break out in a big way. Hit the jump to watch the debut UK trailer. The film also stars Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, Lydia Wilson, and Vanessa Kirby. About Time »

Director Richard Curtis. Bill Nighy. Settle down, Love Actually fans. This isn.t the sequel you.ve penned fan-fiction for, but rather a new collaboration named About Time that has a light touch and a clever sci-fi premise . meaning it likely will lure in Actually supporters and take them on a new journey. The trailer above comes to us courtesy of MSN UK. Give it a spin. As you can see, Nighy plays the patriarch of a family whose male members are able to travel through time. He passes this information down to his relative, Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), who doesn.t use the newfound gift to change dramatic passages of history or correct humanity.s past mistakes. He uses it to get girls. Mind you the girl he.s going after is played by Rachel McAdams, so it.s easy to understand why he.d abuse the normal rules of »
In The Time Traveler's Wife, Rachel McAdams played, well, that — a woman married to a man unburdened by the normal constraints of space and time. In The Vow, she played a woman who gets hit by a truck and forgets that she's married to Channing Tatum. Mash these two up, add in an adorably bumbling British guy (Domhnall Gleeson) and the director of Love Actually, and you will have About Time, the story of a time-traveler guy who keeps hopping around in the past in order to court his unwitting dream girl. This looks cute! But also, could we get Rachel McAdams a normal rom-com boyfriend? »

What if you could jump back through time to say the perfect line, make a better first impression or perform better in the sack? That's the ambitious central premise of "About Time," the latest from "Love Actually" writer/director Richard Curtis, that takes the traditional rom-com and adds a little does of time travel in for good measures. Does it work? Well, let's take a look at the first trailer... Domnhall Gleeson stars as the time-jumping lad, who learns from his father (Bill Nighy) that all he has to do to barrel through time is stand in a closet, close his eyes and think about it....yeah, this isn't hard sci-fi... And so with this great power, what does he decide to do? Pursue the perfect relationship with Rachel McAdams and well, we can't blame him. But aside from the unique conceit, everything else seems about standard for the genre with missed connections, »

Fans of Love Actually and Four Weddings And A Funeral can rejoice, as writer/director Richard Curtis is back with a new romcom that looks to be right in line with his sensibilities. About Time, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Bill Nighy, Rachel McAdams, Lindsay Duncan, and Tom Hollander, is a romcom with a time-travel twist that at first glance may seem like an eye-rolling affair, but with Curtis behind the wheel, it actually comes off as a fun, imaginitive romp that will no doubt have the same »
