You wouldn't want to live in the world of Justin Timberlake's new movie, "In Time." At 25, aging stops and each person is given one more year to live, monitored by a clock on your arm. You need to keep replenishing your clock, or you die. You apparently give up minutes for everything, even cups of coffee. (Good incentive to give up that daily Starbucks.) The movie looks creepy and intriguing. There's been some debate about whether or not Timberlake can play an action hero, but this guy can do it all — music, comedy, drama. We think action is only one more line to add to his resume. Also loving the supporting cast, including Johnny Galecki, Amanda Seyfried and Vincent Kartheiser. (Opens Oct. 28.)
Johnny Depp reportedly knocked the unpublished manuscript for "The Rum Diary" off a shelf when he visited Hunter S. Thompson's home while preparing "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and knew he had to star in the film version. Thompson's novel follows an American journalist who heads to Puerto Rico in the late 1950s, something Thompson himself did in 1960. Amber Heard plays the woman with whom Depp's character becomes obsessed. (Opens Oct. 28.)
Grimm's Fairy Tales have always been darker than they let on. "Grimm" is a perfect name for the brothers. A new NBC series, "Grimm," turns them into a kind of cop show. It's set in a world where characters inspired by the stories exist, and a group of people known as "Grimms" are kind of like Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, and try to protect innocents from the creepy critters. (Premieres Oct. 28, 9 p.m., NBC.)
In the new "Project Accessory," as in sister show "Project Runway," designers compete to make a fashion creation and dazzle the show's host and judges. Only instead of dresses and tops, here we are talking belts, bags, shoes and headpieces. Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Molly Sims is the host, and designer Kenneth Cole and In Style editor Ariel Foxman are judges. (Premieres Oct. 27, 10:30 p.m., Lifetime.)
He's the star-spangled superhero of the comics, brought to life by chiseled and clean-cut Chris Evans. "Captain America" started out as a wimpy New Yorker who was labeled 4-F by the army he so desperately wanted to join in World War II. Thankfully, a secret experimental program turns him into a supersoldier. Hugo Weaving plays creepy villain The Red Skull. If you plan to see "The Avengers" when it comes out as next year's big popcorn movie, watch this now so you can catch up on the world of Marvel Comics heroes. (Out Oct. 25.)
The dinosaurs are back! Those of you with Blu-ray players can now pick up the "Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy" on Blu-ray. All three films have been restored and remastered, and the set includes bonus features as well as digital copies. It's hard to believe the original "Jurassic Park" is nearly 20 years old — the dinosaurs still look pretty amazing, and once the park starts to fall apart, few films keep the drama going better. Remember: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear. (Out Oct. 25.)
"Barney Miller" was a 1970s classic. The gruff, shaggy guys of the 12th Precinct weren't like the more glamorous cops of today's TV. Yemana would make bad coffee, Fish was always crabby and ailing, Wojo was a good guy, Dietrich knew all kinds of random facts and Barney led them all with the sensible good judgment we wish everybody had. Now the entire series is on DVD. The giant box set includes a 40-page booklet, new interviews and commentaries, and even season one of the Abe Vigoda spinoff, "Fish." (Out Oct. 25.)
