STOP ALL THE CLOCKS, CUT OFF THE TELEPHONE: Perhaps no screenwriter is more responsible for the modern romantic comedy canon—or at least the British wing thereof, and especially the parts including Hugh Grant—than Richard Curtis, who is responsible for the scripts to Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones's Diary, Notting Hill, Love Actually as well as the sitcoms Blackadder and Mr. Bean.
About Time, his latest is coming out in November, and if you are interested in what looks to be Curtis' spin on Groundhog Day, or seeing Rachel McAdams in another time-travel-ish romance (and millions apparently do), well, you'll want to see the trailer. Co-starring The Guy Who Played Bill Weasley as The Boy, and much-beloved Bill Nighy as The Dad.
[I saw the trailer before The World's End this weekend. As I often say of films, if you were someone who was thinking about seeing it, you should see it. The whole cast is quite charming—Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine ... even the guy who played Walder Frey and Argus Filch—and it's a winning mix of buddy nostalgia and, well, other stuff that we shouldn't discuss.]
