TriStar Pictures has set loose this new poster for Rian Johnson’s sci-fi assassin flick, ‘Looper.’ Considering the films trailer and the talent involved, I’ve got a sneaky feeling that we’re in for a good’en with this film. ’Looper’ features a first-rate cast in Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Xu Qing and Jeff Daniels, the story revolves around hitmen (“loopers”) who use time-travel to cover the tracks of their murders. Set in the near future, when time-travel is possible but very, very illegal, ‘Looper’ follows Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a sharp, savvy hitman. But Joe is no ordinary hitman. The hooded, bound victims he kills are sent back in time from 30 years in the future: he shoots them with a blunderbuss, burns the bodies, and all trace of the crime disappears. Life is pretty good for Joe, until one day a body arrives without a hood: it’s his future self, played by Bruce Willis. ’Looper’ is released in cinemas September 28th. Check out my interview with Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the film here.

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.
