The time-travel love story is nearly a constant in film, and it can be played a few ways: there are sweet, earnest, slightly creepy, and super-creepy, just for starters. About Time, in which the rather charming Domhnall Gleeson learns of his ability to travel through time, stars off seeming like it might be the super-creepy kind, as Gleeson’s character uses his ability to score.
But then, thanks to his presence and a gentle turn from Rachel McAdams, it seems to swerve into much sweeter, funny territory. That might be due to the fact that Richard Curtis (Love, Actually) wrote and directed. The additional cast (Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander and Margot Robbie) doesn’t hurt. Sure, there’s a bit of heavy message delivery from Nighy, but that might just be the trailer.
We’ve actually got two trailers, one from the UK and one for the US. Check out both below. Read More »

2013 won’t even start for another four months, and Universal’s already shaking it up. The studio just announced a slew of scheduling changes for next year, some minor and some not so minor.
The most significant shift is the one for Carl Erik Rinsch‘s 47 Ronin, which you may recall was originally scheduled to open this fall before Universal moved it into February 8, 2013. Now it’s moving yet again, to Christmas 2013. It’s well known that the 3D samurai epic has suffered its share of behind-the-scenes issues, so the ten-month delay can’t help but raise a few eyebrows. On the other hand, studios tend to reserve those ultra-competitive year-end slots for their most promising titles.
Also set for new dates are Jurassic Park 3D, Identity Theft, R.I.P.D., 2 Guns, Oblivion, Rush, and more. Hit the jump for details.

Briefly: Since (500) Days of Summer, Zooey Deschanel has been only two features: Our Idiot Brother and Your Highness, both released last year. Now she’ll go back to the big screen with director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Pirate Radio) and co-star Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the upcoming Dredd). The film is a time-travel dramedy called About Time, written by Curtis.
Gleeson would be Tim, a young guy from a time-traveling family. When he is introduced to his calendar-leaping birthright, he tries to make positive changes in situations around him. Dechanel will be Mary, with whom Tim gets involved.
Variety says the film would shoot during Deschanel’s hiatus from New Girl, because there just aren’t enough time-travel romantic comedies, the trailer release from earlier today notwithstanding. (I’m serious; it seems like such an obvious subgenre that it should explode with new developments every couple years.)
