SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - By now, most anyone who knows anything about Comic-Con International knows it has become a grand platform from which Hollywood's studios launch promotional campaigns for upcoming films and television shows.

A problem, for reporters and bloggers trying to cover those launches, is that having seen only brief clips of the films or TV shows, it's often hard to discuss them in a serious way.

But Reuters sat down with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried on Thursday for a brief chat to ferret out the details of their upcoming action film, "In Time," which is set for release in October of this year.

From its description, the movie sounds like an old-fashioned crime thriller, only it is set in the future and people stop aging when they're still young and pretty -- which is perfect for a Hollywood movie. Here's what Timberlake and Seyfried had to say about "In Time."

Q: Justin, do you get to kill anybody in this movie?

Timberlake: "Maybe. (To Seyfried) Wait, do I kill anybody in this movie?"

Seyfried: "Yeah, you kill four."

Timberlake: "Yes I do."   Continued...
