Rachel McAdams' rom-com 'About Time' gets new release date

Posted on

About Time

Rachel McAdams’ upcoming time travel romantic comedy, About Time, is doing some of its own leaping across the calendar. Universal announced on Thursday that the film, originally slated for a May 10, 2013 opening date, will now launch in limited release on Nov. 1, 2013 opening nationwide on Nov. 8, 2013.

In About Time, Mary (McAdams) falls in love with Tim Lake (Harry Potter actor Domhnall Gleeson), a man who learns that he, like his father (Bill Nighy), has the ability to travel through time. When an unfortunate time travel incident re-writes history to erase Mary and Tim ever meeting, he has to win her heart all over again.

Sound familiar? It’s McAdams’ second time playing a woman re-wooed by her lover (after last year’s The Vow) and also her second time-travel romance (after 2009’s The Time Traveler’s Wife) – or third, if you count Midnight in Paris.

About Time is directed by Richard Curtis, the filmmaker behind Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
