Pic preemed Thursday in Westwood
“In Time” didn’t start on time at its Thursday preem at the Regency Theater in Westwood, where stars Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake showed up in support of the 20th Century Fox and New Regency Film. Pic, directed by Andrew Niccol, is set in a world where time is literally money and a Robin Hood-style hero steals time from the rich to give to the poor.
“I think Will’s in the 99%,” Timberlake said of his character. “I remember a time when I grew up in the 99%,” he added, giving a nod to the current Occupy Wall Street movement. “It’s incredibly serendipitous, you know, the timing of everything that’s happening right now … and also getting to play a character that you feel represents a mass of people.”
The after-party, appropriately enough, was held in Beverly Wilshire Hotel’s darkened parking structure, replicating the industrial city of the pic. That world, however, didn’t include the food trucks parked around the party, where guests, including Olivia Wilde and Jessica Biel, could chow down on some of Los Angeles’ finest mobile fare.
