In Time (2011)

“In Time” 2011 TEASER

“Repo Men” is a story of, oh wait, this is “In Time”.

“In Time” exists in a futuristic world where people are genetically engineered to live to age 25 and are given 1 more year to live… unless they spend money to buy more time.  Who wants to die anyways?

Justin Timberlake plays Will Salas, a fortunate individual who is accused of murdering the man who committed suicide after gifting Salas with 100 years.  While on the run, Salas kidnaps magnate daughter, Sylvia Weis, played by Amanda Seyfried.  “In Time” is not just a futuristic steal and run scenario.  Salas and Weis are the key to solving the time crisis, creating a twist in the story that will definitely set it out as its own.

“In Time” may be a copy of “Repo Men”, but it definitely has lots of potential, since Amanda Seyfried is changing directions after acting in “Dear John”, “Letters from Juliet”, and, most recently, “Red Riding Hood”.  Justin Timberlake will always be known as a singer first, but with credits such as “The Social Network” and “Friends with Benefits”, Timberlake may have a solid shot at the Big Screen.

Of course, “In Time” will have to compete against the hype around “The Three Musketeers”, the pornographic “Sleeping Beauty”, and the sappy “Like Crazy”.

Will it survive?  We will only know with time.

  1. When reading the plot of In Time, it really reminden me of Repo Men. Not having seen this movie, I became curious: would you say that they are very much alike? Is it worth watching both or would just one do? -Ronja Jansz

      Repo Men gained a 6.3 on IMDb, even with Jude Law in it. I believe Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake, as well as the story itself, will provide a better experience than Repo Men. I say, go for “In Time” and hope the movie is as good as the hype around it.
