Haven’t heard of In Time? You’d be forgiven if you haven’t, but after seeing this four minute promo reel shown at this years Comic Con I reckon you’ll be passing on the message that Andrew Niccol’s intriguing and very clever looking thriller is a must-see. Niccol is the man responsible for Gattaca, S1mone the excellent Lord of War and, sadly, the US remake of classic Korean monster movie The Host.
In Time also boasts a wealth of acting talent. After his rather impressive turn in The Social Network, Justin Timberlake stars as Will Salas, the lead character in the film, and he is joined by the always brilliant Cillian Murphy and the very seductive Olivia Wilde. Alex Pettyfer and Amanda Seyfried also star. Please, enjoy the following clip, we also have a full synopsis and some images below for the film which will hit UK cinemas November 1st.
Welcome to a world where time has become the ultimate currency. You stop aging at 25, but there’s a catch: you’re genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The rich “earn” decades at a time (remaining at age 25), becoming essentially immortal, while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day. When a man from the wrong side of the tracks is falsely accused of murder, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful hostage. Living minute to minute, the duo’s love becomes a powerful tool in their war against the system.
