Time is money, as your boss chuckles. But what if time ACTUALLY WAS OUR CURRENCY??? Ohhhhhh nooooo! I hope you weren't stoned when were reading that shit! Anyway, that's the conceit behind Andrew Niccol's latest, In Time, which proposes a future wherein humans live until 25, stop aging, and then must work to earn more years of life--both to live and spend on coffee and things. In this strange future world, Justin Timberlake is shockingly not the rich star of the just-released romantic-comedy Friends with Benefits; he's a working-class guy just scraping by enough to buy a coffee and live another day. But that all changes one day when the guy from USA's White Collar donates his millions of life-dollars to JT and jumps off a bridge, making Sexyback both life-rich and a prime suspect in a possible homicide. Yikes! Then Timberlake teaches us some important lessons about the problems immortality, the class war, and how to make pretty generic thriller seem like a Philip K. Dick story with the addition of a simple sci-fi gimmick. You'll have to learn those lessons yourself, though, with this trailer:
