LOOPER is looking to be one of the coolest sci-fi films of 2012 that you may not have heard of yet. The film is directed by Rian Johnson (BRICK) and stars Bruce Willis (DIE HARD) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (INCEPTION). The marketing campaign for LOOPER is in full swing with this first official poster and the official plot synopsis (below).
You can also look forward to the film’s trailer set to debut online on April 12th. Last month’s Wondercon treated audiences to a sneak peak of the trailer and it’s gaining a lot of positive buzz. Check out the synopsis below and check back on April 12th for the trailer.
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.
LOOPER is set to release on September 28th 2012.
