Goodness, that In Time, what a confusing movie. Not the plot, in particular. The plot revolves around Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried, whose characters doubtless have names, living in a futuristic dystopia where the citizenry ages until 25, and then is forced to earn more time in order to continue living. The amount of time available is indicated by a constantly ticking set of numbers on their wrist. Justin Timberlake lives in the ghetto where people constantly âtime outâ and die. Accordingly, he thinks this might be a bad system. Amanda Seyfried is a wealthy girl with too much time on her hands who joins him in overthrowing the system because Sullivanâs Travels was a fun movie (fine, Justin Timberlake kidnaps her). Suffice to say, itâs Loganâs Run + Occupy Wall Street + Bonnie and Clyde + A passion for time puns (âyour money or your life! Wait, I forgot â your money IS your lifeâ). More
We keep finding reasons to have so much respect for Amanda Seyfried. She’s not ashamed to admit that she goes to therapy for panic attacks, or that she takes Lexapro. And when asked about how she and Justin TimberlakeÂ developed the chemistry for their romance in the new film In Time, she cracks a pretty funny joke. More
We’ve uncovered a weird phenomenon in movies and TV: You cast two actors to play a parent and child, and yet they’re only a few years apart! Jack fromÂ Will & GraceÂ (via TV Tropes) sums it up best: “This is just like The OC, except without twenty-five-year-old teenagers and thirty-five-year-old parents.” More
As outlandish as its plot looks, we’re really excited to see Justin Timberlake‘s new speculative-fiction thrillerÂ In Time: In a world where time is literally money a nd you stop aging at 25, people have to buy, earn, or steal minutes to keep living. (It’s from GattacaÂ screenwriter Andrew Niccol, so we know it’ll be confusing in the good way.) Crushable scored four exclusive pics from the movie, which shows you who’s on the good and bad sides, and how far in the future we are. More
The In Time trailer begins with a title card: “In the late 21st Century, time has replaced money as the unit of currency.” Which is pretty much all you need to know to understand perhaps the entire plot of this somewhat silly high-concept flick. Time is money, without it, you die, so people are robbing other people who have lots of time. More
