Rich with bravado and courage, but poor with time, Will Silas is constantly in motion, running, searching, and working for every minute and second he can scrape up. After Will helplessly watches a family member’s clock tick down to zero (and a sudden death), he embarks on a journey that will forever change him, his beautiful accomplice and the world around them. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord Of War), ‘In Time’ also stars Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde, Alex Pettyfer, Johny Galecki, Matt Bomer, and Vincent Kartheiser. The film hits cinemas October 28th in the US, and November 1st in the UK.
How would you describe ‘In Time’ and what it has to say about society?
Justin Timberlake: When I first read the script, I got caught up, obviously, in the characters. I sort of love Will’s, my character, Will’s story and how he, through extenuating circumstances, sort of ends up with Amanda Seyfried’s character, Sylvia. I think Andrew has an uncanny ability to take a subject matter like what we have and create a huge thrill ride out of it, a huge roller coaster ride out of it. And, at the same time, kind of say that this might be a reflection of somewhere where we may or may not be right now, or headed very soon.
How challenging was this film?
Justin Timberlake: I look at this movie as my first real lead in a movie. ‘Friends with Benefits’ is a two-hander. With this one, you wake up with my character and I’ll be one of the last faces you’ll see. It was not only physically demanding, but just mentally, a new stone to turn for me. But it was very exciting, I was probably the most excited person on set every day because I love this story and I love this character. I love the idea of an ordinary man, an ordinary person, being shoved into extenuating circumstances and actually doing something through his ordinary way that is extraordinary. So, that was what was really attractive to me about this character. It doesn’t hurt when you have someone as hot as Amanda Seyfried to be in the movie.
What was it like doing all the action?
Justin Timberlake: I particularly love the action in this film. I grew up loving ‘Lethal Weapon’ and ‘First Blood.’ They were action movies that were performance-based and felt more real. When it comes from the character and situation that they’re in, I just feel like I’m with them a lot more because I want to see how they’re going to handle the situation they’re in. I don’t necessarily need to feel like I’m watching $200 million being spent on it. I want to know how it relates to the character. And, to me, the good ones really do that.
