“About Time” was released in the UK and Ireland earlier this week and we made several additions to our site. We added various magazine scans in our gallery including a new interview. We also added more London press junket interviews in our media archive. The text interviews released so far are added in our press archive, you can find some excerpts below.
On the lack of female roles: “Yes, it is tough out there, but there is always something to be found in each role – and that is my job: to make it creatively satisfying for myself and compelling for people watching.”
On returning to figure skating: “It was sort of terrifying. It’s almost like going back into a past life, you know? I stopped skating when I was about 17 when I went off to theatre school.”
On her dream role: “Scarlett O’Hara, for sure. She was just delicious and epic and you’ve got the costumes and physicality on top of it. And all the romances – it was just so rich.”
“About Time” will be released in the US on November 8th (wide). The movie is also selected for the New York Film Festival (main slate) and will have a screening on October 1st.

Rachel and her family (her parents and sister Kayleen) volunteered yesterday at a Habitat for Humanity construction site in St. Thomas (Canada). Habitat Oxford Middlesex Elgin aim is to help low-income families realize a more stable future through our home ownership program. For more information about the organisation be sure to head over to their official website. Local news site Black Burn and AM 980 both reported on Rachel’s visits.
Other Projects > Habitat for Humanity
One of St. Thomas’s most famous residents returned home on Thursday to work alongside Habitat for Humanity volunteers.
Rachel McAdams (pictured second from left, with her family) says she was honoured to support Habitat for Humanity.
“There’s something so profoundly beautiful about building a home from the ground up,” she explained. “It’s about more than doors and windows and paint. It’s about family, future, and building the foundation for lasting memories.”
The McAdams family spent Thursday afternoon constructing the footings and foundation for the home on Westlake Drive, alongside volunteers.
The official schedule of the 51st New York Film Festival was announced. “About Time” was selected, as part of the main slate, and now we know when the screening will take place. The festival runs from September 27 to October 13. The first screening will be on Tuesday October 1st, 6:00pm in the Alice Tully Hall. The second screening is the next day, on Wednesday, October 2, 9:00pm in the Walter Reade Theater.
The incomparably droll Bill Nighy plays a Dad with a secret power that has been passed from the fathers to the sons of his family for generations. They can time travel, albeit within reason. Whether you take this premise literally or metaphorically, it is a profoundly funny hook for a romantic comedy by a master of the genre, Richard Curtis. Fans of Curtis’s Love, Actually will be over the moon at his success in merging his idiosyncratic perspective with the comedic writing skill that made Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill such humongous hits. Lindsay Duncan is the flighty Nighy’s grounded wife, but the spotlight is on the younger generation: Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) as the son and Rachel McAdams, giving one of her very best performances, as the love of his life. A Universal Pictures release.
General Public tickets will go on sale September 8th. For more information be sure to head over to the official website. We hope Rachel is able to attend the screening!

It was announced earlier this year that Rachel signed on to voice a character in the upcoming 3D Animated movie adaption of “The Little Prince” (“Le Petit Prince”). Rachel previously mentioned herself that she was expected to do voice-over for the movie in New York but it looks like the production is moving to Montreal, Canada.
The Little Prince, based on the beloved book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is a CG/Stop-Mo Animated Feature Film directed by Mark Osborne (Director, “Kung Fu Panda”) with Production Design by Lou Romano (Production Designer, “The Incredibles”) and Character Design by Peter de Seve (Character Designer, “Ice Age”). It is being produced by Onyx Films and animated at Mikros Image Canada in Montreal.
Mikros Image is a world leader in computer animation post-production and visual effects. With studios in France, Belgium and Canada. Mikros provides animation and vfx services to over 300 productions a year. In 2010, “Logorama,” produced and animated, at Mikros won the Academy Award® for Best Short Animated Film. Mikros Image Canada is proud to be bringing the classic tale of “The Little Prince” to life.
The production company is currently looking for various team members from August until September 2014 so that probably means the movie won’t get released before that time.
