'In Time' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Dec 21, 2011 at 06:00 AM PST by

The sci-fi thriller directed by Andrew Niccol ('Gattaca') is ticking down for a late January Blu-ray release.

In an early retailer announcement, 20th Century Fox has revealed 'In Time' is coming to Blu-ray on January 31.

In the future, time has become the ultimate currency and genetic alteration has allowed people to stop aging at twenty-five-years-old. Upon reaching twenty-five, the countdown begins and in order to stay alive, everyone must work to buy themselves more time or die within a year. The rich can buy their way out of the situation, while the rest are left to negotiate for immortality. When a struggling young man, Will Salas (Justin Timberlake, 'The Social Network'), comes in contact with a "millionaire," he is gifted more time than he can imagine. Falsely accused of murder, Will is a fugitive on the run and becomes determined to bring down the entire system by any means possible.

The release will be a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include The Minutes behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted/extended scenes, and the Access to In Time: The Game app.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
