No, it’s not déjà vu you’re experiencing. Rachel McAdams is indeed in another time-traveling movie.
Going back to a similar route of 2009′s The Time Traveler’s Wife, McAdams stars in About Time with Domhnall Gleeson, a story about a family secret that gives Gleeson’s character the ability to relive the past and try things differently until he gets them perfectly right.
You can guess what happens here. Gleeson’s character uses his special gift to win the heart of a woman named Mary (McAdams). But because things are never perfect, he finds that true love is hard to perfect even with multiple chances.
It’s a wonder why a talented actress like McAdams will go down a similar route once again. But considering the fact that she gets to work with Oscar-nominated director Richard Curtis (the mastermind behind movies Notting Hill, Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral), there’s a good chance she jumped at the opportunity just for him.
But unlike the cheesiness that was The Time Traveler’s Wife, this movie actually looks pretty good. Who can really pass off a bond between Domhnall Gleeson and Bill Nighy? If anyone’s keeping track, that’s Bill Weasley AND Rufus Scrimgeour from the Harry Potter movies!
Victoria Abraham defines one up and coming artist each week so you can impress your friends with your musical brilliance. This week, she tackles Dead Man’s Bones, a folk-rock duo from Los Angeles. We haven’t heard much from Dead Man’s Bones lately, so this is a bit of a throwback post AND a plea for them to make more music.
There are two particularly awesome things about Dead Man’s Bones. One: their folk-rock sound. Two: RYAN GOSLING. Yup, Ryan Gosling is in a band. So just in case your crush on him was wavering, he decided to become even more awesome. But, unlike other actors-turned-rockstar situations, Dead Man’s Bones is actually genuine, different and worth your ear time.
Band members: Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields. Gosling performs under the alias “Baby Goose.”
Known for: Dead Man’s Bones are known for their dark lyrics and imperfectly perfect songs..
Used in a sentence: “Dead Man’s Bones is like accidentally discovering those two cute guys from high school have a morbid fascination with zombies and horror movies, yet you’re still totally into them.”

Fun facts: Gosling met Shields when The Notebook star was dating Rachel McAdams. Shields was dating her sister at the time. They bonded over their mutual love of horror movies and music. So they decided to create a scary musical.
Eventually they decided to just focus on the music. The band has a personal rule of not doing any more than three takes for any song, embracing the imperfections that occur. They also play all the instruments themselves.

Just when you thought the CRAY-revolution was fading away – Kanye West and Jay-Z’s anthemic tune is back with an inevitable mash-up with the visuals from “Midnight In Paris.”
In case you haven’t seen it (WHY?!), Woody Allen’s Oscar-nominated film stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard as they encounter some of France’s most popular artistic circles that include the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali and F. Scott Fitzgerald. So basically – instead of going back in time like the movie suggests, they’re going back to the future with the iconic rap duo.
It works much better than you’d expect with the exquisite Marion Cotillard eager to be married at the malllllllllll.
After months of speculation, it has been confirmed that Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams are dating.
The actor said yesterday at a Cannes event:
“Yeah, we are together. She’s talented, intelligent, beautiful. She’s warm and friendly. She’s very supportive, and very kind, very funny. She makes me laugh a lot … Hopefully, I have some of those qualities as well.”
McAdams’ last high-profile romance was with actor Ryan Gosling.
Congrats to them – they seem like a happy, normal couple. Both are relatively low key, so I think it will turn out good.
At points, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” sheds new light into the romantic drama genre. But at others, it just gets old and fails the test of time.
The film – based on the hit novel by Audrey Niffenegger of the same title – revolves around Henry DeTamble (played by Eric Bana), a Chicago librarian with “Chrono Displacement” disorder, a condition which allows him to randomly disappear into both the past and the future without warning (otherwise known as time traveling). He tries to build a life with the woman of his dreams, a young artist named Clare Abshire (Rachel McAdams), but their relationship is tested when the couple is forced to part ways for long periods of time due to his condition.
We first meet Henry as a little kid who’s assured by an older version of himself, after going through a car accident that everything is going to “be okay.” Fast forward a few decades later and a 30 something Henry is greeted by Clare whose known him since the age of six – the problem is, he doesn’t have a clue who she is.
Rachel McAdams has been cast opposite Robert Downey Jr. in Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes” reboot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the London, Ont., native is taking on the role of the enigmatic Irene Adler, a character who appeared in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1891 Holmes tale “A Scandal in Bohemia.”
Although Adler only appears in that story, McAdams’ character would return in any possible sequel to Ritchie’s film, which is based on a forthcoming comic book by producer Lionel Wigram that reimagines Holmes as more of an adventurer.
As previously reported, Downey will play the titular sleuth.
The movie’s star-studded cast is rounded out by Jude Law as Holmes’ sidekick Watson and Mark Strong (Ritchie’s upcoming “RocknRolla”) as the main villain, Blackwood.
Shooting is set to begin next month for a 2010 release.
McAdams, 31, can currently be seen as an Iraq War veteran in “The Lucky Ones,” which opened in theatres Friday. Her upcoming movies include “State of Play” with Ben Affleck and Russell Crowe and “The Time Traveler’s Wife” with Eric Bana.
Ryan Gosling has officially confirmed his split with Rachel McAdams in his new interview with GQ.
“The only thing I remember is we both went down swingin’ and we called it a draw,” he said of the break up that occurred a few months ago.
Despite being from the same hometown in Canada, Gosling and McAdams met for the first time on the set of The Notebook. The fictional love story that turned into a real one created some intense fans. The pair were never comfortable with the expectations created by the film.
“I mean, God bless The Notebook,” Gosling said. “It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.”
Gosling also said that Notebook fans seem to be taking the split harder than he is, noting that one fan almost smacked him.
Sources tell Lainey Gossip that the pressure from Notebook fans and the decreasing privacy are the cause of the rift. McAdams, an intensely private person, was apparently so uncomfortable in her own neighbourhood in Toronto that she and Gosling had to meet secretly. Gosling is said to have not minded as much and thought she was overreacting.
