World premiere screening! 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…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. About Time is scheduled to release theatrically in November.
The movie is also part of the Film4 Summer Screen festival in the U.K., be sure to read our previous post in case you missed it.
Rachel made a surprise appearance during her own St. Thomas’ Timken Centre Wall of Fame Induction yesterday in her former hometown. She was suppose to do voice-overs this week in New York, but the production got pushed back to next week so she was able to attend the event.
The local news paper St. Thomas Journal released a nice in-depth article about the induction. Rachel confirmed and talked about her upcoming projects “The Little Prince” and the still untitled Cameron Crowe project to the journalists after her acceptance speech. She also revealed she is currently working on a few other projects and there may possibly be a new movie on the way in the very near future.
Linda Maskell Pereira recalls seeing the Canadian actress Rachel McAdams on a stairwell one day when McAdams was nearing the end of high school.
Pereira was McAdams’ drama teacher at Central Elgin Collegiate Institute in the small city of St. Thomas, Ont. and she wanted to know what her student would do after graduation.
McAdams told her she planned to study social sciences at the University of Western Ontario in London, a stone’s throw from St. Thomas.
“I love drama so much but I just don’t think that it would be a very practical thing,” McAdams said, according to Pereira. “I don’t think I can get a job.”
Film.com released a new U.S. poster for “Passion” earlier today. The movie is expected to be released in the U.S. on VOD on August 1st, followed by a theatrical release on August 30th.
Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed To Kill with an erotic corporate thriller fueled by sex, ambition, image, envy and the dark, murderous side of PASSION. The film stars Rachel McAdams (Midnight In Paris, Sherlock Holmes, Mean Girls) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as two rising female executives in a multinational corporation whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat.

Schirmer Mosel will publish a photobook book titled: “Anton Corbijn: A Most Wanted Man“. The German publisher released a preview of the book in their fall 2013 catalogue, you can find the preview and link below. The book will be released in the U.S. on December 20, 2013, you can already pre-order it on Amazon.com! Thanks to the AMWM Facebook Fanpage for pointing this out!
Anton Corbijn’s new film A Most Wanted Man, a modern-day espionage thriller based on a spy novel by John le Carre, takes a look at the “war on terror,” which plays a decisive and increasingly grim role in the aftermath of September 11th. Set in Hamburg, it stars Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Robin Wright, and Nina Hoss. As was the case in his first two cinematic endeavors (Control and The American), Anton Corbijn has again combined his own documentary photographs of the shooting and comments into a superlative film and photo book in which “fact and fiction” are shown to full advantage against the backdrop of Hamburg’s cityscape.
The cast and crew returned to Hamburg last week for re-shoots for the movie. Director Anton Corbijn also revealed last month to the dutch press that post-production is expected to finish in July of this year and that they are aiming for a fall 2013 release. The movie is still without an U.S. distributor, so no firm release date has been set.
Rachel will be part of the A Night Out With The Millennium Network evening in Toronto next week as ‘Honorable Ambassador’. The event is hosted by The Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton will speak during the event and Tegan and Sara will give a special acoustic performance. The event will take place Tuesday, June 4th in the Berkeley Church in Toronto.
Inspired by President Clinton’s vision to encourage the next generation to address global challenges, the Millennium Network invites future leaders and philanthropists to get involved in the work of the Clinton Foundation — improving global health, strengthening economies, promoting healthier childhoods, and protecting the environment.
You can buy tickets for the event on the official website of the foundation. For more additional information be sure to also check out this page.
