It seems in the not-so-distant future, assholes still rule. Anyway, after dropping a wealth of footage at Comic-Con, it seems Fox wants to give away as much of this movie as possible before it hits theaters (reminiscent of their campaign for “X-Men: First Class“), so now barely one week later, we now have a trailer for the increasingly silly looking “In Time.”
In this latest look at the film, it would seem the entire plot is generated by assholes. First, there is the heartless bus driver who won’t let Olivia Wilde on the bus even though she is short on time to pay (yeah, hours and minutes are currency in this high-concept sci-fi flick) and there is that jerk from “Mad Men” playing an even jerkier version of that character here. Anyway, it’s not really explained in the trailer very well, but for some reason Justin Timberlake has to go on the run (because as that other footage revealed, he’s accused of murder, being on the receiving end of a very generous gift of time by that “White Collar” guy) and Amanda Seyfried is there to yell “look out” and shoot a pretty huge gun. Anyway, in case you can’t tell, this kind of looks pretty terrible and as much as we want Andrew Niccol to return to his “Gattaca” glory, he’s beginning to look like a one shot wonder (sorry folks, “Lord of War” is pretty overrated).
“In Time” has its clock set for an October 28th release. (UPDATE: Access Hollywood has pulled it from their site, but you can still check it our via WorstPreviews below:)
