'About Time' - Richard Curtis Time-travel Romcom

About Time, the new time-travelling romcom written and directed by Love Actually's Richard Curtis. It stars Domhnall Gleeson, whose character discovers that he has the power to travel through time. Using this ability to get a girlfriend, he soon fixes his sights on Mary, played by Rachel McAdams. Strangely enough, the course of true love does not run smoothly.

Looks quite interesting - seems to travel down his own time-line rather than travel in time itself (if that makes sense).

So, it's The Time Traveler's Wife, but without the immutable timeline?

Guess she's a favorite target for time travelling stalkers?

Re: 'About Time' - Richard Curtis Time-travel Romcom

The American trailer is vastly different, and it reveals the likely reason behind the film's major plot complication, plus other important spoilers.

Re: 'About Time' - Richard Curtis Time-travel Romcom

So is Rachel secretly a great big geek, or is this just a coincidence?

A girl that reads hard science fiction and quotes Bladerunner is so hot.

Looks a fun film but even from the UK trailer I can guess some major plot twist/reveal.

Re: 'About Time' - Richard Curtis Time-travel Romcom

So, we've had a zombie romcom and now a time travel romcom. What's next? A superhero romcom? Is this the new thing? Romcoms based off of whatever speculative fiction is hot in hollywood right now?

Re: 'About Time' - Richard Curtis Time-travel Romcom

I'm working my way through Pepper Dennis right now, and I keep looking at these two and wondering how different this is from Lois and Clark without the Spandex alien.

I saw Kristen Bell dressed up as Supergirl earlier this year.

So I'm good.

I'd rather see Sarah Jones as Powergirl.

I'm not talking about dreams.

This happened.

I'm sorry you had to sit through that movie just to see her.
