'Time After Time': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about the Sophie Turner, Asa Butterfield starrer
After a breakup, most of us spend our time moping and obsessing over the details that could have led to the disastrous event. What if you could go back in time and fix everything so that the breakup never happens and instead you're left with a happy, blissful relationship. Stillman (Asa Butterfield), a jilted boyfriend who is dumped by his girlfriend, Debbie (Sophie Turner) does exactly this in 'Time After Time'. He creates a time machine which helps him go back in time and get a second chance to salvage the relationship.
You can catch the premiere of this movie on July 15, 2019.
"Nothing focuses your mind like a broken heart. I have created what every broken heart wants — a second chance." These lines by Stillman will resonate very strongly with every person that has ever had their heart broken. When Stillman's girlfriend Debbie breaks up with him, he immediately applies his gifted mind to create a time machine, which will help him get a second chance to work things out with Debbie, his one true love.
But does a second chance really help fix everything that led to the breakup? This beautiful science-fiction embedded romantic comedy shows us that some mistakes, no matter how hard you try, can never be fixed.
In one of the interviews, Butterfield shared his thoughts about breakups and the movie, "Yeah, I think everyone looks back at breakups and thinks, 'If I had done that thing differently…', it's just a very real scenario — if you take away the time travel aspect — in that you always think about what you could've done better and wish you had the ability to go back and change that. That opens up a lot of possibilities and funny scenarios in the movie."
Butterfield plays the role of physics genius Stillman. He builds a time machine after his girlfriend Debbie dumps him because he wanted a second chance to "fix" their relationship. Butterfield is an English actor who began his career as a child actor. He received a lot of critical acclaim for his portrayal of the role of Bruno in the film 'The Boy in Striped Pyjamas'. He has gone on to act in several renown movies like 'Hugo' and 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children'.
Sophie Turner plays the role of Debbie, the ex-girlfriend of Stillman. Turner is an English actress who is best known for her role of Sansa Stark in the popular television series 'Game of Thrones'.
Gisondo plays the role of Evan, the wingman of Stillman, who accompanies him on his time travel adventures as he tries to patch things between him and Debbie. Evan also uses time machine to get dates for himself. Gisondo is best known for his role as Eric Bernis in the popular Netflix drama 'Santa Clarita Diet'.
'Time After Time' was inspired by Bowler’s 2011 short film 'Time Freak' which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Live Action Short Film. 'Time After Time' was released as a limited release with distribution to few select theatres and on digital on November 9, 2018. The film is Andrew Bowler's first feature-length directorial film.

The trailer begins with Debbie (Sophie Turner) suggesting to Stillman (Asa Butterfield) that they should break up, which Stillman doesn't take too well. He says "I am not giving up" as she walks away. He then creates a time machine which he shows to his best friend Evan and then embarks on his journey to get a second chance at fixing his relationship with Debbie.
