I don’t know much about ‘Looper’ with the exception of two things: 1.) Joseph Gordon Levitt is Bruce Willis and vice versa. 2.) It’s directed by Rian Johnson, director of ‘Brick’ and ‘The Brothers Bloom’ (and a couple of superb episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’). But this time, Johnson delves into the world of sci-fi noir with ‘Looper’, about the consequences of criminalized time travel. Still confused? This bangin’ international trailer might make things a little clearer. Check it out below!
The Official Synopsis is as follows:
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce
‘Looper’ hits theaters September 28th.
