Admittedly when I first found out about this film a while ago, I thought it sounded completely stupid.. but after hearing it's "time travel meets shaun of the dead" (of course without the zombies) and watching the trailer, I'm sold. It even has some money post apocalyptic shots with huge killer ants.

Chris O'Dowd, Marc Wootton, Dean Lennox Kelly star as three ordinary blokes who may hold the fate of the entire world in their hands when they discover a rift in the space-time continuum in the gents' of their local pub.

I know that sounds lame, so just watch the trailer after the break. via filmstalker

Thanks for the reference QE, much appreciated.

Yeah, I thought the same thing too, and even got a little bit of friendly flak about it from some of those behind the film. However the trailer has totally turned things around for me and I'm really keen on seeing it.

Of course I don't think having Anna Faris up front is quite the right thing to do, but the rest of it looks great.

Thatnks so much for posting this. I'm a big fan of O'Dowd thanks to his role in British sitcom The IT Crowd, and the geeky dissection of time travel looks hilarious. I won't hold my breath for a US theatrical release, but that's what multi-region DVD players are for. Can't wait.

I've seen the film and it is great fun and very British, with three blokes sitting in a pub talking about sci-fi. Although it is primarily a comedy it does take the time travel aspect very seriously, especially all the paradoxes involved. It will naturally be compared with Shaun of the Dead because it is a Brit genre comedy, but it is very much its own film.
Full review coming on www.sci-fi-london.com closer to release date.

So, I guess Lionsgate would rather protect copyright than promote their movie. Baffling.

looks a bit too teen-comedyish for my primer-adjusted timetravel sensibilities
