Andrew Bovell, who wrote the screenplay for “A Most Wanted Man”, talked to Radio New Zealand about writing the screenplay for “A Most Wanted Man” and he also talked a little bit more about the release. A transcript of his quotes can be found below, and you can listen to the entire interview over here. Many thanks to Jord for the heads up!
When’s it coming out that movie?
Ok, it seems to be put back, do these things happen, delays?
Erm it’s always a question of the director and the time he takes in the edit, in the post production, and Anton Corbijn the director is very thorough, very careful and he just took a long time to come to the film he really wanted to make. It was also crucial the film sold into the American market and that deal has just been done, finalized about a month ago so that’s really now set the whole scheduled for the world release.
We assume he is referring to the Australia/New Zealand release for the movie, so this could mean the US release will be late 2013. Lionsgate acquired the movie last month for the US but they have not yet announced the official US release date.
August 15th, 2013 About Time, Media Archive Comments Off on “About Time” London & Munich Red Carpet Interviews
We added over 10 red carpet interviews of Rachel during the World premiere in London and the Munich premiere for “About Time” in our media archive. We think we covered all the video footage released so far, but if we missed something be sure to drop us a line.
Our favorite red carpet interview of Rachel is probably the Q&A she did before the Munich premiere screening with director Richard Curtis. We really love how Richard Curtis praised Rachel:
“I don’t think Rachel knows, but she is the greatest actress in the world. And I’ve told her that a few times. It was absolutely gorgeous and every scene it seems if though my lines were not necessary cause she just she just felt like what I wanted to say in the scene from the very beginning of the scene until the end.”
–Richard Curtis on Rachel McAdams
We added 8 movie clips of “Passion” in our media archive. They are released over the last few week to promote the VOD release of the movie in the US. The movie is available on VOD and Itunes in the US right now and will get a (limited) theatrical release on August 31st. It’s already available on DVD in the UK.
Lots more additions are added of Rachel promoting “About Time” in Europe. Many thanks again to my friends Nicole, Claudia and Helen for helping us out. We are not sure about this, but it looks like the European promotion tour is done (for now?). Rachel revealed to the German press she is going to stay in Munich today so she can visit the English Gardens.
The movie will also have a screening in Locarno (Switzerland) next week as part of the 66th Locarno Film Festival. There is also a premiere screening scheduled on August 31st in Cornwall (UK). Director Richard Curtis is confirmed to attend, no word on whether Rachel will attend as well.

August 9th, 2013 About Time Comments Off on First “About Time” Reviews
The “About Time” world premiere was yesterday in London. The movie had several screenings for the press earlier this week and the first reviews are coming in. The movie gets positive reviews from the critics so far, but especially the reactions from the audience via twitter seems to be very positive! We will add more reviews later on. The movie will get a preview release September 4 and goes nationwide September 6th in the UK followed by a November 1st (limited) and November 8th (wide) release in the U.S.
“More than just a time-travel rom-com, this is a movie that asks you questions and doesn’t sugar-coat as many of the answers as you’d expect. Smart and sweet, funny and genuinely moving. Should probably come with a ‘there’s something in my eye’ warning.”
-Mark Dinning, Empire Magazine
“McAdams is a joy, matching Gleeson’s comic timing beat for beat, and an early sequence in which Tim relives their first night together is as good as anything Curtis has ever done.”
-Robbie Collin, Telegraph
