Woo hoo! The trailer for “In Time,” the sci fi thriller starring Justin Timberlake, is out. The concept is this: in a dystopian future, people die at age 25. However, the rich can buy more time while the poor simply have their clocks wind down. Wait, is that Pete Campbell from “Mad Men“? How creepy is it when he introduces his mother-in-law, his wife, and his daughter and they all three look exactly the same age? But getting back to the story, when Justin’s character is accused of murder, he kidnaps the daughter, Amanda Seyfried, and holds her hostage lest his time run out. And—yee haw—they end up falling for each other. And maybe getting it on in the shower? Yeah, I am a little too excited for this movie. How about you? Keep reading »
“It was a mind trip for me. Olivia is two or three years younger than me, so to have her playing my mother was definitely a head trip. I’d just like to point out that [my song] ‘Mother Lover’ is about sexing up someone else’s mother.”
—Justin Timberlake talks at Comic-Con about his new action flick, “In Time,” in which he stars alongside Amanda Seyfried and Olivia Wilde. In the movie, scientists have figured out how to stop the aging process so that people remain forever 25—but for a high price. Which means that in the movie, characters who are far older in numerical age look the same as everyone else. Hence, how Olivia can play Justin’s mom.

We’ve been thoroughly impressed with Justin Timberlake‘s turn from pop star into full-fledged actor. It began with his nerdy turn in “The Social Network,” and continued with starring roles in twin rom-coms, “Bad Teacher” and “Friends with Benefits.” Next, Justin is pushing into action territory in the sci-fi thriller “In Time.” In the flick, humans have figured out how to stop aging—if you are rich enough to pay for it. Justin’s character is—until he’s accused of murder and goes on the lam, taking Amanda Seyfried as a hostage. Can I buy tickets now? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Catherine Hardwicke—the director behind both “Twilight” and the new movie, “Red Riding Hood“—has an interesting method for casting her leads. She has them make out. “Starting with ‘Thirteen,’ my known technique is to cast the lead, then find someone with whom they have incredible chemistry,” she says. Last week, she explained to us that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had “electricity” the first time they met—in her kitchen, before moving into her bedroom to rehearse a kissing scene. “The same was true with Amanda [Seyfried in “Red Riding Hood”]. I wanted her to be on fire with the person,” Catherine said. Keep reading »
“Meryl [Streep] makes herself very accessible right away, almost too accessible. That’s what I do. And it totally works. My thing about meeting people—men, women, people in general—is to desensitize them, kind of shock them a little bit, to make myself accessible.”
– Amanda Seyfried on how to win friends and influence people in Elle. Does that apply to animals too? Is that what she’s doing with this duck, making herself accessible to it? She has that “I just shocked a duck” expression. She’s no Meryl Streep. I’m almost offended by the comparison. [Elle] Keep reading »
