In Time comes from the same writer behind The Truman Show and The Terminal. In a world where everyone stops aging at 25, Justin Timberlake (The Social Network) finds himself with too much time that others are willing to kill for. For the rest of the film, he goes on the run with Amanda Seyfried (Mean Girls). Wilde, Matt Bomer (White Collar), and Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) all play a role in this sci-fi suspense piece. Check out two different sneak peeks below. Expected U.S. release date: October 28, 2011

I love the trailer of The Ides of March!

Expected U.S. release date: Oct. 7, 2011

New Year’s Eve is patterned after Valentine’s Day, where there’s multiple stories told simultaneously. Several familiar faces from Valentine’s reappear, like Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Biel, but this isn’t a sequel. It should also be noted that it’s just a sneak peek, so the video reveals more of the cast than the actual plot. Nonetheless, two of the storylines they do show look like they’ll be my faves in the movie.
In one of them, Josh Duhamel (Transformers) is on a search for his dream girl he met once before. The trailer doesn’t betray who it is, but my guess is it’s Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball). The other interesting story is where Michelle Pfeiffer (Hairspray) enlists Zac Efron (17 Again) to help her accomplish her New Year’s resolutions. (Don’t we all need help with that?)
More star power comes in the form of Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Lea Michele (Glee), Robert De Niro (Meet the Parents), Hilary Swank (P.S. I Love You), Katherine Heigl (The Ugly Truth), and Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City). Expected U.S. release date: Dec. 9, 2011
