About Time (2013)
I have always been fascinated with the concept of time travel. About Time is about a guy who is able to go back in time and re-live any event that he wants in order to try to make it better. He basically gets an everlasting do-over.
You might ask yourself, if he can do things over and over again until they are perfect all the time, then what is the point of living? I think that there has got to be a catch. There is always a catch. I just don’t think that the preview shows what the catch is.
Rachel McAdams has made another time travel movie. It looks like this one might have some similarities to The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009). I guess I’ll just have to see it to find out.
It does look a bit like a chick-flick, but the time travel topic is enough to make me want to see it.
The movie is written and directed by Richard Curtis. The cast includes Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lee Asquith-Coe, Lindsay Duncan, Domhnall Gleeson, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, Rowena Diamond, Vanessa Kirby, and Catherine Steadman.
The movie is set to release on 11/8/13.
Redemption (2013) (also known as Hummingbird (2013))
Jason Statham has been stuck making a lot of very similar movies lately. Hummingbird seems slightly out of the norm for him. The movie looks like it has a little bit more of a story to it and a little bit more heart in it. Although I could be completely wrong, that is just what I gather from the preview.
A man (Statham) assumes a different man’s identity in order to hide from the law.
The movie is written and directed by Steven Knight.
I’m not sure that this movie would be worth seeing in the theatre. I’m also not sure if it will even get wide release in the U.S. or go straight to DVD. Either way, it looks like it would be worth seeing when it finally does come out on DVD.
I can’t find a U.S. release date on this one, but it is supposed to be sometime this year.
