    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? :lol:

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

    haha That looks fun. I would so use it to see the dinosaurs and get laid a lot more. :)

    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.

    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?

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