Here’s the UK teaser poster for Rian Johnson’s (Brick, The Brother’s Bloom) upcoming sci-fi flick LOOPER starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Piper Perabo. The film is a time-travel action thriller that involves a killer (Gordon-Levitt) who works for the mob of the future. The poster features the very cool-looking time machine that the loopers use to go back in time to dispose of people sent from the future. Johnson also provided a black and white image of him sitting on the time machine several months back (see below). Bruce Willis, who plays the older version of Levitt’s character, told Esquire that the film is “better than anything [he’s] ever done.” Looper is by far one of my most anticipated films of the year. The film is set to hit theaters September 28th. Poster courtesy of IGN
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.
