Watch: Backwards Driving & Futuristic Payphones Feature In 4 Clips From 'In Time'

Andrew Niccol‘s “In Time” is released next week and Fox is gearing up for a marketing onslaught, with four clips from the movie hitting in the last few days. For your appraisal, we’ve gathered the lot and posted them below.

Starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy and Olivia Wilde, the story takes place in a future where no one ages past 25 and time is currency. Will Salas (Timberlake) is accused of murder and theft of a huge quantity of time and has to go on the run, taking Seyfried hostage. And even though we’re being taken cinematically into the future, everything about the film feels very much rooted in a cliche present. The clips are slick and elegant to look at, but are hardly memorable aside from Murphy making the most of his villainous turn. We’re not sure how payphones still exist in the future but they do and even the backwards car chase pretty much just made us long to watch the much more exciting sequence in “Drive” again. But if anything, these clips show that even if you’re on the run, there is always a way to squeeze in time (SEE WHAT WE DID THERE?) to make-out, especially if you’re Timberlake and Seyfried.

“In Time” opens on October 28th. Clips below. [Moviefone/IGN/Yahoo]

“What’s there to know…?” Oh, please. And, oh, for a head-on collision between Smarm-Lad’s stolen sports car and that semi tractor. (And what a dainty tap between said tractor and Cillian’s car. He should be sitting there mashed into the opposite door with all the tendons in both his knees torn. But no: he just looks mildly put out. After all, how could he spend the entire film running after Timberlake bellowing “STOP!!!” if both his knees were wrecked?) Between the cruddy action shots and the WHAT?!? premise (They just canceled money. Yup. And put sudden-death killswitches on everyone’s arms. Suuuure they did.), this is really starting to look very, very bad….


I just can’t warm up to Timberlake as an action hero. He is so small and slight. Really Hollywood, this is the best you can do?!


I am only looking forward to the wonderful Cillian Murphy.


I hope this movie isn’t as underwhelming as its script.


I look forward to seeing Justin Timberlake and Cillian Murphy face off in this movie.
