Anthony posted the comic-con trailer/footage for Andrew Niccol‘s In Time a while back and I have to be honest with you, it looks great! I like how sci-fi heavy it is and how it’s not afraid to fully embrace such a weird idea of time being a currency. I do feel that the original clip revealed was a little too long and managed to reveal too much, but this new trailer is much slimmer and better! It cuts to the chase, gives you a better look into the weird world which it takes place in and it ends on a high note. I can’t wait to check it out! This will be cinematographer Roger Deakins first digital film!
In Time is directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) and stars Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Cillian Murphy and Alex Pettyfer. It will be released on October 28th, 2011.
Check out the latest trailer below, thanks to The Film Stage.
“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.
