A few weeks back we got a Comic-Con trailer for Andrew Niccol‘s upcoming sci-fi flick In Time which stars Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. The trailer was rather long and revealed quite a lot about the film, and now 20th Century Fox have released the first official trailer which is half the length but seems to contain twice as much running.
“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.
Justin Timberlake plays Will, with Amanda Seyfried playing an heiress who he kidnaps while on the run. Cillian Murphy plays an officer from the Timekeepers organization and Olivia Wilde will play Will’s mother.
In Time hits screens October 28th, 2011.
