It was previously announced that “About Time” got a new release date in the US. Universal moved the movie from May 10 to November 1 (limted) and November 8 (wide) in the US. The movie was previously set for a March 22 in the UK but it’s pushed back to September 6, 2013 according to Film Distributor Association. The new UK date is also confirmed by Empire Magazine. Thanks to Nick for the heads up!
Rachel’s co-star Domhnall Gleeson recently gave an interview to HeyUGuys and he also talked a little bit about the movie.
So what can you let us know about Frank, Calvary, About Time and the other projects you’ve got coming up?
Well they’re all very different, I mean, About Time is a comedy, but it’s also kind of very deep and beautiful, about all these relationships and I had a wonderful time filming that with Richard Curtis and Rachel McAdams – with all these incredible people, I had a brilliant time on that […]
Universal has pushed back the US release of “About Time“. Producer Eric Fellner talked about the possibility of changing the release date but now we finally have official confirmation. The movie recently got a R Rating and was really well received after it’s first test screenings.
Universal has pushed the release of “About Time,” Richard Curtis’ time travel romantic comedy starring Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams. Instead of opening May 10, it will open in limited release Nov. 1 before going wide Nov. 8.
Curtis, the filmmaker behind “Love Actually” and “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” wrote and directed the film, a comedy being produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Nick Kentish Barnes.
The film also stars Tom Hollander and Bill Nighy. A Universal spokesperson said the film was moved to the fall because it’s the “perfect season for the film.”
It was going to open in a packed May, one week after “Iron Man 3,” the same week as “The Great Gatsby” and a week before “Star Trek Into Darkness.” It would serve as counter programming to “Iron Man” and “Star Trek” but may hit the same audience as “Gatsby.”
In moving to November, it will open the same weekend as the adaptation of “Ender’s Game” and then go wide the same weekend the sequel to “Thor” opens. Lower-budget awards fare will no doubt surface on the schedule in November as well.
Also opening in that stretch are Tyler Perry movie “We the Peeples,” romantic comedy “Love is All You Need” and Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha.”
I assume they will also push back the release date for the UK which is currently set for March 22, 2013.
Ropesilicon is reporting that MPAA gave “About Time” a R Rating. The movie is written and directed by Richard Curtis and stars Rachel, Domhnall Gleeson, Bill Nighy and many more. Script editor Emma Freud recently revealed on twitter that the movie locked picture which means that the editing process is done. MPAA’s official website also reports that the alternative title for the movie is “Time And Time“.
Title: About Time (Time And Time)
Rating Reason: Rated R for language and some sexual content.
The movie is currently set for a May 10 release in the US and a March 22 release for the UK but Universal is thinking about moving the release date to September according to the producer. The trailer was rated PG last month but it’s still not released.
The UK website ibtimes.co.uk is reporting that Rachel is one of the contenders for the adaption of Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl“. They report that Emily Blunt is currently top contender for the movie. Reese Witerspoon is producing the movie.
The novel gains much of its suspense from switching between the perspective of a husband whose wife goes missing, and the missing wife herself. Other contenders for the starring role include Charlize Theron and Rachel McAdams, with Mad Men star Jon Hamm, Ryan Gosling and X-Men actor Michael Fassbender rumoured to be in the running for lead man.
Keep in mind that you should consider this as a rumor since I am not sure how reliable the source is and it seems more like an interpretation of what fans of the book want. I did decided to post it on here anyway, because various media outlets – including National Post – suggested before that Rachel would be a perfect fit for the female lead.
Comingsoon.net talked with producer Eric Fellner from Working Title. The production company is producing “About Time“. He talks about the movie, and also reveals they will probably change the May 10, 2013 release for the US. The first trailer for the movie got classified earlier this month, but it’s not yet released.
CS: Anyway, you guys are always working on a lot of different projects so what have you been working on for next year?
Fellner: We’ve got a new Richard Curtis movie called “About Time” which stars Rachel McAdams and a fantastic young actor called Domhnall Gleeson, who is Brendan Gleeson’s son. He was actually in “True Grit” and he was in “Anna Karenina” as well and he’s just gorgeous to watch on screen. It’s a beautiful Richard Curtis romantic comedy about the simplest of things in life which is two people who fall in love and have a family and that is it.
