Amanda Seyfried, who just covered the November UK edition of Glamour magazine, has three new movies under her belt that take her from science fiction to crime drama to romantic comedy. How’s that for range?
She’ll hit the big screen in October, with Justin Timberlake, in sci-fi thriller “In Time.”
It’s about a future world where how long you live is measured by how much money you have. If you have enough, you can buy more time. Otherwise, you die one year after turning 25.
Timberlake’s character is burning a short fuse until he inherits a huge sum of money, which translates into lots of time.

But he’s forced to go on the run after being accused of murder and takes Seyfried’s character hostage.
“Oh, only a lesbian or a straight man could resist the Trousersnake. Justin really is unique, but he has a difficult life,” she told Glamour.
“I mean, he can’t walk down the street anymore and that’s such a shame because freedom is everything.”
The movie, which also stars Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Galecki and Vincent Kartheiser, hit theaters Oct. 28.
So far it has grossed $95 million worldwide against a $40 million budget, but the critics hated it.
Next up in “Gone,” she plays a woman whose sister is abducted. She believes it’s same kidnapper she escaped a year earlier.
Seyfried’s character battles the clock and skeptical police to rescue her.
Directed by Heitor Dhalia and written by Allison Burnett, “Gone” also stars Jennifer Carpenter, Wes Bentley, Sebastian Stan and Michael Pare.
Studio Summit Entertainment has set a Feb 24, 2012 release.
Her latest film, “The Big Wedding,” just went into post-production and is slated for a fall 2012 release.
The romantic comedy is about how a dysfunctional, divorced couple, Robert DeNiro and Diane Keaton, must pretend to be still married at their adopted son’s wedding.
The ruse, of course, snowballs out of control, in what the studio describes as “a poignant and raucously funny story about the ties that bind.”
Her last film, fantasy “Red Riding Hood,” also had a middling run, grossing $89 million worldwide against a $42 million budget, despite being roundly trashed by critics.
