'About Time' Trailer: Would You Travel Through Time for Rachel McAdams' Heart?

Would you travel through time if you knew that you could possibly win Rachel McAdams’ heart through your efforts? 
 
That’s a no-brainer. 
 
It’s also the premise of director Richard Curtis’ next romantic comedy, About Time, which boasts a clever sci-fi twist as it also reunites him with his Love Actually scene stealer, Bill Nighy. The actor plays a father who holds a unique secret. The men in his family all have the ability to travel through time. And he’s passing this “talent” on to his 21-year-old son (Anna Karenina co-star Domhnall Gleeson) … who is going to use it to win over McAdams. 
 
Good man.

It looks incredibly sweet, especially if you are a fan of Curtis’ touching, witty screenplays like Notting Hill or Four Weddings and a Funeral. McAdams can do these rom-coms in her sleep, and Domhnall appears to be a capable leading man. 
 
The movie opens in the U.S. on Nov. 8. Here’s the official synopsis, provided by Universal Studios. 
 
"At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time...
 
The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's father (Bill 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 (Rachel 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."
