Starring Rachel McAdams, Domhnall Gleeson and a time-porting MacGuffin, About Time combines many of the things we know and love about Richard Curtis (offbeat romance! Laughs! Pop songs! Salty language!) with some that aren't so immediately associated with the New Zealand-born director. Namely time-porting MacGuffins.
The time-travelling comedy romance has a new trailer for you. Word of warning: it's got some swearing in it, so if you're of a sensitive disposition or, say, on your way to be ordained, keep the sound turned down.
About Time focuses on Tim Lake (Gleeson), who discovers he has an unusual talent: he can travel in time. According to his dad (Bill Nighy), it’s a genetic gift passed down through the men in his family. While he can’t change big historical events, he can alter things within his own life. Like his girlfriend, or lack thereof.
After heading to London to train as a lawyer, Tim meets the lovely but insecure Mary (McAdams), and although they fall in love, an unfortunate time-travel accident means they end up not meeting at all. So he has to try again and again. Get a Tardis, people!
