The first trailer for sci-fi thriller
has landed online.
Andrew Niccol (
) directs, with Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy and Alex Pettyfer starring.
If you're wondering why the cast is rammed with youthful, easy-on-the-eye talent, it's because the film is set in a future in which time has replaced money as currency.
The characters (who are only given a year's worth of currency when they hit 25) have a handy digital countdown on their forearm to remind them how much time they've got left, as they spend valuable minutes on everyday goods and services.
It's a curiosity-inspiring premise, but as with all high-concept sci-fi there's the chance this could err on the side of silly. As Niccol was able to keep
compelling, we're willing to take a leap of faith with this one.
This extended trailer (it runs at almost four minutes) sees JT's Will Salas struggling to keep his counter going until he bumps into a mysterious stranger. Being a lengthy promo, the footage does seem to give a fair amount of the plot away.
