About Time - New Image And Nifty, Rather Detailed, Plot Blurb
Here's the second image from Richard Curtis' About Time, his return to time travel stories after Doctor Who's wonderfulVincent and the Doctor.
That's Rachel McAdams and Domnhall Gleeson.
Here's the new, detailed plot blurb for the film:At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time?I think I'll like this a great deal. I hope so, at least.
The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim?s father (Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can?t change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life?so he decides to make his world a better place?by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think.
Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he?s never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again?and again?but finally, after a lot of cunning time-traveling, he wins her heart.
Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches, to save his best friend from professional disaster and to get his pregnant wife to the hospital in time for the birth of their daughter, despite a nasty traffic jam outside Abbey Road.
But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift can?t save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. There are great limits to what time travel can achieve, and it can be dangerous too. ?About Time? is a comedy about love and time travel, which discovers that, in the end, making the most of life may not need time travel at all.

The only ABOUT TIME I care about is the book series published by Mad Norwegian Press.
I was hoping that was what this thread was about: an announcement for ABOUT TIME Volume 7, detailing the BBC Wales DOCTOR WHO series....

Sounds like a light romcom version of The Time Traveller's Wife. Could be good, and if nothing else it would have to try very hard to be worse than the bllodlessly boring film version of said book.
