An international trailer for writer/director Andrew Niccol’s (Gattaca) sci-fi/thriller In Time is now available online. Starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, and Olivia Wilde, the film is set in the “near future” when time is used as currency and people only live until they’re 25 unless they acquire more of it. As the story goes, Will Salas (Timberlake) is accused of a murder he didn’t commit and goes on the run with Sylvia Weis (Seyfried) in an attempt to stay alive.
I’m a shameless fan of Niccol’s so I’ll most likely be checking this one out. That said, based on what I’ve seen from the film thus far, the action seems to fall a little flat while the sci-fi elements and explicit social commentary keep me interested. Check out the international trailer for yourself after the jump. In Time opens on October 28th.
Here’s the trailer:
Here’s the official synopsis for In Time:
When Will Salas is falsely accused of murder, he must figure out a way to bring down a system where time is money – literally – enabling the wealthy to live forever while the poor, like Will, have to beg, borrow, and steal enough minutes to make it through another day.
