How Many Do You Need? Yet Another Trailer For Andrew Niccol's 'In Time' Lands

With a Comic-Con sizzle reel, a trailer, and now another trailer hitting for Andrew Niccol‘s “In Time,” we’re beginning to wonder if Fox‘s marketing department is having trouble figuring out how to sell this thing.

Starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy and the omnipresent Olivia Wilde, the story takes place in a future where no one ages past the age of 25 and time is currency and follows Will Salas (Timberlake), who is given a generous gift of minutes and hours by the 105-year-old Matt Bomer. Unfortunately, Will is accused of murder and has to go on the run, taking Seyfried hostage. But don’t worry, she’s cool with it because they eventually find time to totally make out. Niccol fans continue to stand by the flick even though each trailer makes it look increasingly silly. We’re hoping the film is a bit more cerebral than the dull sci-fi actioner being presented here and that the high concept premise — which already seems a bit wobbly — is a bit more fully and interestingly developed beyond the digital armband time wallets everyone has.

Given the sudden marketing saturation, you would think this comes out next week but it actually won’t hit until October 28th. Embed comes from HeyUGuys or watch the whole thing in HD at Apple.

The movie looks good. Sad that Bomer dies in the movie. Matt Bomer and Cillian Murphy are the best actors in the movie.


Too bad the best actor in the movie is barely in it at all: Matt Bomer. Am very glad for the first trailer because now I don’t have to sit through Timberlake’s bad acting for two hours.


Niccol couldn’t sell “Gattaca” (selfish young man with heart defect more than willing to endanger a space mission ’cause he “deserves” to be an astronaut, darn it: no thanks) or “The Truman Show” (as if: the argument stops right there), and he won’t be able to sell this limping cross between “Les Miserables” and “Logan’s Run,” especially with Timberlake’s childishly flat line delivery. The premise is not just creaking, it’s disintegrating on the launch pad. Murphy looks and sounds bored. And “futuristic setting”: the L.A. River…? Oh, please. Next.

It’s just you.


is ti me or that poster is sort of ripping of the Girl With The Dragon Tatoo one?


This is a much, much better trailer than the first one—which literally made zero sense and gave away the entire movie. But this will be a tough sell, anyway. I’m on board simply because of Andrew Niccol—who described this movie somewhere as a spiritual cousin to Gattaca. That’s enough to warrant my $13 bucks.
