I thought we had already covered this trailer for In Time so I put off writing it up. I could have sworn there was a new trailer released only a week ago, and I was right. But this is a new trailer! It’s pretty similar to the old trailer! It hits you with a cool sci-fi premise (there’s a future where everyone lives until their 25 unless they have more time so time is used as currency) and then aims for broader appeal by selling an action flick where Justin Timberlake is on the run with Amanda Seyfried as his hostage/protection from evil rich people and the cops. I really want In Time to work as smart sci-fi and not just as the premise for a standard action movie. Adam liked what he saw at the film’s Comic-Con presentation so that’s a good sign.
Hit the jump to check out the new-ish trailer. The film also stars Cillian Murphy, Vincent Kartheiser, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Galecki, and Olivia Wilde. In Time opens October 28th.

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.
