In “In Time” Matt Bomer is really sick of being 105 years old and ridiculously good looking so he decides to kill himself. If you can buy that, then perhaps you’ll have no problem with the latest from dierctor Andrew Niccol.
Starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde and that guy from “Mad Men,” 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 accused of murder and has to go on the run, taking Seyfried hostage. He runs afoul of the timekeepers (or something) and then he and Seyfried are suddenly hot lovers, setting the stage for a revolution to free those precious hours and minutes. Niccol is no stranger to high concept sci-fi tales (“Gattaca” and the far less successful “S1m0ne“) but even with the endless string of trailers so far, we’re still not quite buying into this movie yet. This new trailer is largely like the ones that preceded it, but it does contain some new action beats and more of Timberlake and Seyfried taking it off and getting it on.
Carve out a couple of hours in your day and see “In Time” when it opens on October 28th.
