The futuristic thriller speaks of a time when the aging gene is turned off at age 25 but in order to live, you must pay for the extra time.
In this period, where time is currency, one man must struggle to stay alive after being mysteriously gifted with an extra 100 years of life.
“This story, most of all, is really about living in the present — the technology has just made the consequences even greater because you have a ticking clock that reminds you every moment of your mortality,” explains director Andrew Niccol.
When Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) is falsely accused of murder, he must figure 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.
Justin says, “I think Andrew has an ability to use his films to make us look in the mirror. He does it in such a smart way.”
In addition to Justin Timberlake, ‘In Time’ stars Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Alex Pettyfer and Cillian Murphy. ‘In Time’ is scheduled for release by October end this year.
