From the director of Love Actually and just about every high-grossing romantic comedy of the last twenty-five years comes a
brand new, thought-provoking?, original? …film about two love struck young’uns, one of whom has the ability to time travel.
It’s not that I believe Richard Curtis is incapable of directing a film anchored by the outlandishly romantic notion of being able to relive the moments you’d love to get a second chance at, but, didn’t this movie already get made?! And wasn’t Rachel McAdams in that one, too!? I’m sure this will have its moments of rom-com bliss, but as for the obvious, I don’t understand why this one exists.
The film stars Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter, Dredd), Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander, and Margot Robbie. It’s set for a November 8th release, via Universal Pictures.
Here are the new international and domestic trailers:
At the age of 21, Tim is told an incredible family secret by his father: all the men in his family have the ability to relive their past. He can revisit any moment in his life to try things differently until he gets them perfectly right.
He decides to use his special new gift to win the heart of the beautiful Mary, but finds that the course of true love can be hilariously difficult — even with the ability to try, try and try again. And even when everything seems to be going well, an unfortunate twist in time means that he never met Mary at all… While his unique gift might just help him find true love, Tim discovers that it can’t save him from the ups and downs that life brings to everyone. In the end, he finds that making the most of love and life will mean giving up the past and living for the moment.
