‘About Time’ Trailer: Improving Your Sex Life Through Time Travel

About Time

Do you feel it in your fingers? Do you feel it in your toes? Love, Actually writer/director Richard Curtis has a new science-fiction romantic comedy on the horizon. And so the feeling grows.

In About Time, a young man (Domhnall Gleeson) is told by his father (Bill Nighy) that the men of their family have the ability to travel in time. Naturally, he sets upon using the incredible talent to get lucky Daft Punk-style and sets out to woo a young lady played by Rachel McAdams.

There’s a touch of Groundhog Day here, what with the opportunity to call Mulligan and redo specific moments in time, and knowing Curtis’ strengths as a storyteller, it may turn out just as rich and lively. He’s never been one for the surface-level gimmick, and the trailer tilts in that direction (while adhering to the strange rule that McAdams has to run around in her underwear for at least one trailer-bound scene):

Of course, McAdams was part of the time travel romance The Time Traveler’s Wife that turned out to be a bizarre mess despite excellent source material. This looks a bit more promising even with the warning about the Butterfly Effect shoehorned in for dramatic friction. Apparently trying to be better at sex can really disrupt the universe.

About Time is in limited theaters November 1st and expanding November 8th.
