Some more comic-con reveals this time in form of a promo trailer/reel and posters for Andrew Niccol‘s IN TIME.
The dystopian sci-fi thriller stars Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in movie a where time is currency and staying young is everything, JT plays Salas a working class man who is struggling working in a factory and after helping a stranger escape but only to wake up with that stranger killing himself as well giving Salas all his time! Salas learn the rich live longer and now finds himself accused of murder been hunted by a timekeeper taking Sylvia (Seyfried) along for the ride both now finding themselves questioning the system.It certainly sounds an intriguing story, very ironic especially in a era wealthy rich people try buy their youth back through cosmetic surgery but as we know time will always win in the end.
This looks a slick thriller which may not look futuristic in its setting but makes up for it in technology, it also looks Niccol has used his vast experience in sci-fi (Gattaca) and woven what looks a pretty decent movie to enjoy when its released in UK&Ireland on November 1st.
In Time presents 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.
