Writer-director Andrew Niccol's (Gattaca) new sci-fi thriller, In Time, opens nationwide in less than a week and 20th Century Fox has released a new character featurette and three new preview clips from the movie to help you to get to know the protagonist, Will Salas (Justin Timberlake), and the lengths he will go to change the world he lives in.
Set in a retro-futuristic world in which the aging process can be arrested as long as you can afford the time, Salas is hard-working, but time-poor. After watching a family member's time clock run out — resulting in sudden death — Salas becomes determined to find a way to fight the system and beat his own clock. When he inherits a century's worth of time from a wealthy man (Matthew Bomer) who is tired of living, Salas' future should be secure. Unfortunately, neither the corrupt, FBI-like "Timekeepers," nor the impoverished "Minutemen" want Salas to have that much time and both groups are determined to stop him from spending another second of it.
In this new character featurette, Timberlake describes the background, motivations and mission of Will Salas, whose goal is basically to become a futuristic Robin Hood, robbing time from the rich to give to the poor.
In the new preview clips, Salas is pursued by the Timekeeper Leon (Cillian Murphy) and aided by a rebellious young woman (Amanda Seyfried) who resents her time-rich father's (Vincent Kartheiser) way of life. (NOTE: For some reason, the first and second clip released by Fox contain some overlapping footage.)
In Time also stars Olivia Wilde, Bella Heathcoate, Alex Pettyfer, and Johnny Galecki. It opens nationwide on Oct. 28th.
