Today brings the trailer to the upcoming sci-fi action film In Time. My initial reaction is mixed. To be completely honest, it’s still slightly jolting for me to see Justin Timberlake acting in a film. Although he was excellent in The Social Network it’s quite a bit different to see him attempt to be an action star, complete with fight scenes and explosions.
On the plus side there are beautiful people in the movie. Hot girls to be specific. Not really sold on the premise of the film yet. Maybe it’s something that plays better in long format instead of a short trailer.
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.
