A world where everyone remains young and pretty forever? No, it’s not the CW prime-time schedule, it’s IN TIME, Andrew Niccol’s latest weaving of science-fiction speculation and wry social commentary. Imagining a civilization in which time literally is money — minutes, hours, days are earned and spent, the poor living a genuine day-to-day existence while the rich are practically immortal — Niccol casts Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake as a two souls from the opposite sides of the time-line who decide to right what they see as an inequitable system, by violent means, if necessary.
Theofantastique.com‘s John W. Morehead joins Cinefantastique Online’s Dan Persons to look at how Niccol — who here produces, writes, and directs — brings this curious scenario to the screen, and discuss whether Occupy Wall Street should take time out from their protests in order to catch a screening.
Also: Dan delivers his verdict on the latest entry from the Shrekiverse, PUSS IN BOOTS.
Here’s the latest trailer to YOGI BEAR — and I’ve got to say if the movie lives up to the trailer, it looks like it’s not that bad an update of the TV cartoon.
Dan Akroyod and Justin Timberlake voice Yogi and Boo-boo, while Tom Cavanaugh (SCRUBS) plays Ranger Smith.
Eric Brevig (JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH 3-D) directs, from a script by Jeffrey Ventimilia, Joshua Sternin, and Brad Copeland.
Due out December 17th from Warner Brothers Pictures.
