The director of the new rom com set in Cornwall says they had to spend some of the shoot dodging naturists.

Richard Curtis movie About Time is out on Wednesday - after getting its cinema premiere in St Austell at the weekend.

You can see glimpses of Charlestown, Portloe and Gorran Haven - but fortunately no glimpses of anything else on Vault beach.

The movie stars Bill Nighy, Rachel McAdams, Domhnall Gleeson and Michael Sheen.

It tells the story of Tim who inherits the ability to travel back in time. He uses his powers to romance Mary, who he meets after moving to London to train as a lawyer.

Domhnall Gleeson is the time travelling star. He said: "Cornwall was really, really, really hot - and delightful. Ice creams on the beach and lovely people and gorgeous scenery."

Lydia Wilson plays his sister, growing up in the Duchy. She said: "The best bit about Cornwall is a beautiful town called Fowey, which has got loads of layers. It's basically on a bay with loads of little boats. There were two rainbows the day I visited, so it was a particularly good day. It's a gorgeous little seaside town. I'd recommend it."

Love Actually director Richard Curtis has confirmed that the movie will be his last.

Following its UK release it will be rolled out internationally with a back-to-back distribution schedule until it reaches US cinemas in November.

Malcolm Bell, Head of Visit Cornwall, said: "With the Cornish coast starring alongside two great talents of the movie world; Richard Curtis as writer/director and Bill Nighy as cast headliner, About Time has all the ingredients of a box office hit.

"It offers unbelievable promotion for Cornwall across the world and with the DVD release following six months later, the audience potential is immense. Films have a significant influence on holiday choice and can introduce new markets to a destination.”
