Well, Looper‘s on it’s way to being pushed out of Hollywood’s womb, and it’s Rian Johnson’s baby… and it’s a boy. I think. Yeah, that analogy ran out of steam quick. Anyway, Rian Johnson is also the same guy who gave birth to Brick (analogy’s back), which people reportedly liked (I didn’t). He may have directed something else too. I don’t know. Anyway, there’s a new poster for the film, which is all meant to lead up to the film’s teaser on April 12th. I feel they’ve already shown too many images for a teaser. Why not just give us the full trailer? The film’s done, isn’t it? Anyway, as you can tell from the poster, the film comes out September 28th to coincide with the 2,012th September 28th.
Despite my mocking tone, I’m actually looking forward to this film. I love time-travel in movies, and I’m equally a fan of Bruce Willis. JGL is cool too, I guess. Even if he does look eerily similar to Bruce Willis in this. Here’s the official synopsis, in case you’ve forgotten what Looper‘s about:
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 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.
