A new trailer has been released for the romantic dramedy, About Time. The film puts a time travel spin on the classic romantic comedy conceit, as Domnhall Gleeson (Anna Karenina) plays a man who has inherited the ability to travel through time from his father (Bill Nighy). Naturally, Gleeson’s character uses his time travel prowess to woo the girl of his dreams (Rachel McAdams), but as with all time travel stories, the powers come with grave consequences. The trailers we’ve seen have cast the film as a serious drama and as a light-hearted comedy, and this new one is definitely the latter. But rather than lay out the whole plot, it boils down the time travel device into one scene, and it works wonderfully.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. About Time opens in the U.K. on September 6th, and in the U.S. on November 1st.
